Super detailed and let’s me know places so I don’t waste my time or other peoples time.

Great for travel 5/5
By Culture Bearer
Excellent resource for the traveling plant-based eater!
Happy cow app is so helpful! 5/5
The happy cow app is so great! I’ve been traveling a lot and it helps me to plan meals while on the road. The input from users is super important too. From actual reviews of the quality of food to the range of choice of vegan options, it really helps to manage expectations and make informed choices.
Thank you for creating this great tool!
App doesn’t solve problem of no vegan restaurants 3/5
The premise of this app is good but having an app to find vegan restaurants doesn’t magically make them appear. When I first installed it it came back with nothing, so I went in to “filters” and increased the search radius to 50 miles and then one restaurant is listed. So if I drive for over an hour I can get breakfast or lunch (they don’t serve dinner...)
We don’t need apps so much as we need vegan restaurants!
I would say save your $3.99 and use Yelp, but Yelp lists places as vegan that aren’t.
By Tuba joe
For help finding good restaurants and food trucks on a special diet, this app is a must have.
This app is only valuable if “Vegan” means 100% Organic.
Unless “Round Up” is considered to be VEGAN???
Wonderful food. Vegan friendly at reasonable prices.
Love me some Happy Cow 5/5
Happy Cow helps me be Happy Chris! End of story!
Such a helpful app for me being vegan I just love it
By angry irritated
Restaurant part is cool but making a profile is impossible. Please work out the kinks! I have tried to make a profile 10 times with no success.
Rating system is silly 1/5
By General Peepers
If a restaurant isn't 100% vegan I can't give it five stars? And if a restaurant is 100% vegan I can't give it less than two? Silly, outdated, and false. People trust you for reviews, let them be honest. We're adults, for heaven's sake. We can learn to read. Silly, and enough to make me discount the reviews and just use this as a wayfinder. It's 2019. Do better.
BEST VEGAN RESOURCE EVER 5/5
I have been using this app ever since I went vegan three years ago. It shows you all the vegan-friendly restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores in an area. Whenever I go on a trip, I use this app to find vegan food places, and it has been indispensable for locating AMAZING places. I have never had a poor experience at any of the many places I’ve visited thanks to this app. Not all of the places are strictly vegan, but that’s ok, because they still have vegan options. Also, the profiles of the places tell you if it’s “vegetarian,” “vegan,” or “veg-friendly.”
Needs improvement! 2/5
Ok I get how valuable this information is catering to vegan / vegetarians. The problem is if I’m paying $3.99, I expect the data to be reliable. The price point is not the issue but the fact that the end result is the opposite of the value I expect out of it. My girlfriend is vegan and I bought the app to use in Paris and, no exaggeration, three places in half a day were closed or had no vegan food left. I also noticed places that had some options that aren’t listed. That said, I think they should reconsider making this app free so people can share the info that improves the data quality being offered. At some point, going around is time consuming, exhausting, and expensive. I’d like for you to succeed but you need to make some changes pronto.
Just found you 5/5
It’s like Yelp for veg people. I can’t wait to try these places out. Easy to use
Well worth $3.99 5/5
We use this app worldwide. Saved us in Spain and found the best vegan cafes tucked away. Use it every time I travel.
What a lifesaver! 5/5
I couldn’t imagine traveling without HappyCow.
Phenomenal resource for veg-friendly options 5/5
I was initially hesitant to purchase this app due to it not being free (I’m cheap when it comes to app purchasing), but upon downloading it, I could not be happier. Especially when visiting new and unfamiliar locations, I have used this app to find restaurants able to accommodate my dietary choices.
Secondly, I really appreciate the ability to add reviews to the locations – both pros and cons – and the ease of adding photographs of the restaurants. (Venue is important!)
Third, I admit that I was annoyed when I noticed that multiple restaurants offering veg options were not listed on the HappyCow app; however, I decided that I could change that by adding them myself. Since then, I have found this app the greatest resource for me because it engenders and cultivates a community who is collectively trying to make eating veg an easier and more delightful experience.
Lastly, I’m extremely thankful for this app and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try veg, already veg, or simply interested in seeing veg options throughout their area.
If you live in a small city or town don’t buy this app! 1/5
By Can Can3
This app isn’t helpful at all to people who may live in a small town or city! This app literally just tell you where you can go that’s Vegan, if you don’t have much options I suggest you don’t get it you’re better off calling all your local restaurants and ask them yourself before going. I’ve removed the app and still is being charge after I tried to get a refund with Apple! It’s sad that I have to keep paying for something I don’t and can’t use!
Easy to use and soo helpful! 5/5
This app makes it SO much easier to find options when out with friends.
I wish I had purchased the app earlier 5/5
How wonderful. Happy Cow is a super great resource for everyone. I’d heard about it for years. Will use it our whole trip - and when we return home as well. Yay! Thank you.
Rich Information, Ugly iPad App 4/5
By Rick Roberts
I wish the developers would put in a little more work on the iPad app instead of simply sizing up the iPhone version. It’s gross. iPad is more than just a big iPhone.
I LOVE HAPPY COW 5/5
I LOVE HAPPY COW! I AM ABLE TO FIND SO MANY PLACES TO EAT THAT ARE VEGAN SO MUCH EASIER AND FASTER!! AND THE COW ON THE FRONT OF THE APP IS SOOOOO CUTE!♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼💗💗💗
Not usable in my area of KY 3/5
I really wanted to use this app but apparently my location has zero vegan restaurants and only 1 restaurant with vegan options. It just wasn’t worth the money due to where I live. It sounds like an amazing app if you live in an area with a variety. But now I have no use for it
Great app! Great for traveling 5/5
I love this app, has come in so handy traveling and at home.
I highly recommend it and encourage you to try and participate in putting your fav spots online too!
I wanna eat more delicious vegan nomsss!!
Not a very good app 1/5
I’m mad that I spent money on this app. I bought this app to help me find vegan and vegetarian places around NYC and Brooklyn. It didn’t matter whatever area I was in, the same restaurants came up and I know those aren’t the only vegan and vegetarian restaurants in NY. I had to google myself vegan and vegetarian restaurants and found better luck with that. So don’t waste your money and google those restaurants before going anywhere. It’ll save you a lot more time.
Plant-based must-have 5/5
Sick of packing nuts and protein powders to make it through uncertain food environments while on the road? Happy Cow has GOT you. Nuanced descriptions of which menu items or entire restaurants are plant based, easy to use maps, colorful real pics of vegan dishes. This app is probably the most valuable I’ve ever downloaded, certainly worth every penny of the price.
super cool but needs tweaking 4/5
The app is super easy to use and very helpful, but I wish it were more polished! Literally, every uploaded picture looks grainy (is it because of the watermark?) and something as seemingly useful as a menu photo ends up being totally useless, and I have to either rely on a website that‘s hopefully updated or Yelp. It‘d also be nice if pictures were separated categorically: menu, food, drink, inside, outside. This helps me get a better understanding of a spot and not weed through blurry pictures.
Very few options in China 1/5
Based on the highly positive reviews, paid and got this app for a trip to China. Tried this in Beijing. Xi’an, Chengdu, Yangshuo and Hong Kong - at different locations within these cities. Not a single time this showed a restaurant nearby whereas Google showed several. This needs to go a long way to be truly useful.
IM VEGAN 5/5
I’ve been vegan for about 4 months, and this app is so helpful showing me places near me to eat. I’ve been going to the only veggie grill in town, and now I’ve got tons of options! Yay!!
THANK YOU, Happy Cow, FOR MAKING MY VEGAN LIFE SO MUCH EASIER! 5/5
Amazing tool for anyone who is vegan, vegetarian, or even just dibbling in the life and want to see what the world has to offer out there! A must for travelers, as well.
New to the app 5/5
Just found out about the app and it has done me wonders so far. Easier to use that Google or Yelp.
The best vegan food app!! 5/5
This app is truly life changing. Especially for those who travel a lot!!
#1 in my vegan survival tool kit 5/5
You are vegan, kosher, or vegetarian? Honey, you need this! As a vegan kosher person this is a lifesaver!
As a vegan traveler Happy Cow has saved me many times from sadness and hunger! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😎😎😎🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Best Food App if You Travel! 5/5
I was a little deterred by the $4 cost for an app, but it was more than worth it to plan my Japan trip!! I’m so floored by how amazing this app is and it’ll also help me find places around town easier as well. My only complaint is that it seems to have recently changed from a 4-star max rating to 5-star (?), so all the reviews I’m seeing for food in Tokyo mention something along the lines of “I wish there were more than 4 stars to give”, so I feel like ratings should be adjusted.
Lackluster Experience So Far 3/5
I love vegan for so many reasons. My top three being compassion, my health, and the environmental impact. This app is great for finding finding strictly vegan restaurants. It’s usefulness diminishes as you move towards more inclusive options. For instance, in Reno there is a breakfast place called Two Chicks that has an amazing vegan skillet and delicious vegan pancakes, but many meat options too. They don’t make the list.
The app doesn’t allow you to search for a particular restaurant. I’d also like to sort by meal (breakfast, lunch, Italian, Mexican, etc.).
Lastly, you cannot rate a restaurant five stars if they aren’t strictly vegan. They have a category for “veg-options”, why not allow me to give a place with veg options five stars? Seems discriminate.
I hope the app continues to develop, and I’m happy to contribute my $4 to the cause, but at this time I do not recommend it as a one stop shop to find vegan food in your area. I still find yelp and google more useful.
Pure kitchen Frisco Colorado 5/5
This restaurant was so accommodating and my husband had their vegan burger and said it was the best he has had ever!! I had a Zoodle bowl and it was delicious. Zucchini, and lots of other veggies. Seasoning was great.
best app for vegans 5/5
I use this app several times a week and it has led me to many wonderful discoveries. thanks happy cow!!
Doesn't seem to work 1/5
By David Garber
I can't believe there are no vegetarian restaurants East of Van Ness in San Francisco. They aren't showing on my app.
Plant Based No-Oil options 4/5
By Tried to make it work.
The happy cow app has been very helpful to my wife and I under our new lifestyle of plant-based know oil living. We are wondering if you could add a feature or filter for establishments that are willing to serve a plant-based know oil option. Very difficult to find places that have it on the menu. We recently found a great one near JFK Airport in New York City thanks to your app. We were disappointed that there is no way to identify such accommodating establishments with your app.
The numbers behind Dr. Collin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn continue to grow exponentially. We hope you can serve this growing group of followers with your wonderful app.
Many thanks to everyone over at Happy Cow. Thanks for spreading love and compassion for every creature, and also for making this app which makes it even easier to be vegan!
Not accurate nor updated. 3/5
Perhaps due to the fact that I’m not living in the USA. But for what are you paying for this app they should provided an reliable information regarding restaurants. What’s more these seems to be a community sourced platform which means the user which must pay for the app to use can / have to add restaurants. So far I haven’t been satisfied using this app hope the developers switch into a proactive way of providing a reliable source of information for vegan and vegetarians.
Necessary for travel 5/5
When I first went vegan I used the web version now 1 1/2 years in I decided to go ahead and buy the app. My first $.99+ app purchase but totally worth it. I love how it will tell you what’s nearby. The location feature is with the price alone. We travel a lot and I bought the app with that in mind.
I am traveling through the area and found this place. I am diabetic and pregnant, so I have very restrictive diet. This place picked up on my restrictions and made sure everything I had accommodated my needs. Food was great. Service superb. I highly recommend it.
This app was a lifesaver in Italy! 5/5
By Kathryn speaks
We just returned from a 10 day tour in Italy and this app was a lifesaver!! We were able to search out vegan restaurants in Rome, Tuscany and Venice!! We ate like kings and everything was so easy to find! Thank goddess for this app! In the land of dried meats oil and cheeses we found fresh and savory selections in every town we visited! This app was so worth the price! We use it all the time!! Thank you Happy Cow! My only request/feedback is that you add “Whole Food Plant Based” or “WFPB” as one of your dietary label choices, pretty please🙏🏻 I’ve selected Herbivore but would appreciate the correct title to be available for those who are WFPB, which many are for health reasons.
Very useful 5/5
Such an awesome app to use especially if your traveling. I recently went on a road trip and this app really came through, I was able to find some hidden gems. Definitely worth the 3.99 investment if your curious about plant based or vegetarian options.
#1 App for Vegan / Plant-Based Travelers 5/5
My 3+ years being Planet Based / Vegan would have been nearly impossible considering how much I travel... HappyCow is my go to in finding & planning Vegan options everywhere I go.
