Best app for vegan and vegetarian travelers!!


My husband and I love this app!! We love to travel around the world and every place we go there are vegan options for us thanks to HappyCow.. we use this app and TripAdvisor to strategically find hotels close to vegan restaurants... I also found one time a vegan bed and breakfast in the FL Keys and I took my husband there for birthday ... I don't compare this app to yelp because in Yelp I don't trust if the place is complete vegan or not.. maybe it's me, but happy cow was created with a different mission compared to Yelp.. hope this review helps! Totally worth the $4!!

Love this app.


Being vegan can be challenging when eating out but this app helps so much.
Delighted to find even when I am visiting China it’s still offering suggestions. I guess it’s only as good as the people who use it so I must remember to keep adding and making reviews as we all should do. It’s what its all about helping each other along .
I tell all my vegan and none vegan friends about this, times are changing and it’s amazing people who aren’t vegan will know someone who is so keep spreading the world about this app it’s such a brilliant app.

Favorite App


This app has been a savior for me when traveling. It gives me recommendations of vegan-friendly places that I would not have known of otherwise, based on my location. It has made it much easier for me to find places that cater to me, taking the pressure of me when I’m a new place. I even use it in my hometown to see what new restaurants have popped up. MUCH more effective than google-searching for places and definitely more reliable. I can’t explain how much I value this app.
