Can’t Say NoEnjoy Vegan Options at these Savannah Restaurants
Did you know that Nov. 1 is World Vegan Day? Established in 1994, the day is a tribute to the many benefits of veganism for people and the planet. Whether you’re a longtime vegan, a newbie or an omnivore, World Vegan Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the plant-based diet and learn about the lifestyle. Savannah has several restaurants that offer delicious vegan options. If you’re vegan for life, or just vegan for the day, celebrate this special observance by dining at one of these vegan-friendly restaurants. 
The Haunt
Opened in July 2021, The Haunt is a relative newcomer to Savannah’s culinary scene. But since opening, they’ve made a name for themselves, offering forest-to-table flavors that are unforgettable. Everything on the menu is 100% plant-based, and all of the dishes are thoughtful and inventive. Many of the meals are mushroom-focused, like the Porcini Banh Mi and the Sloppy Mane. So, if you love rich, earthy flavors, you’ll enjoy what The Haunt has to offer. 
Fox & Fig Cafe
Brought to you by the good folks behind Foxy Loxy, Henny Penny and the Coffee Fox, Fox & Fig Cafe is a plant-based bistro serving up bold brunch bites and vegan specialty coffee drinks. Fox & Fig Cafe reimagines traditionally omnivorous dishes as innovative, toothsome vegan meals. Featuring house-made banana bread and authentic maple syrup, The Bananza French Toast will satisfy your sweet tooth. And with its carrot-cucumber-jalapeno mix, the Bowl of Plenty will excite your palate. Be sure to try one of their specialty cafe drinks with your meal. You’ll leave feeling full and energized. 
Hungry Vegan
Hungry Vegan is Savannah’s only vegan soul food restaurant, and they truly are in a class of their own. Serving Southern comfort food favorites like mac and cheese, greens and meatloaf (minus the meat, of course), Hungry Vegan delivers big flavors that are completely plant-based. If you’re craving soul food that won’t compromise your vegan diet, Hungry Vegan is definitely where you want to be. 
Kayak Kafe
With locations in midtown and downtown Savannah, Kayak Kafe is committed to serving up fresh, delicious and healthy options to its customers. While they are not exclusively vegan, Kayak Kafe offers a wide variety of plant-based options. The Tofu & Vegetable Burrito doesn’t disappoint, and their Vegan Tator Tot Nachos are a fan favorite. Find some time to enjoy the vegan options at Kayak Kafe soon. 
The Sentient Bean
The Sentient Bean is a community-minded cafe serving up vegan and vegetarian bites. All of their food is thoughtfully sourced and their coffees are fair trade, so you can feel good about dining at the Bean, as it’s colloquially known. For a hearty meal, try the BBQ Wrap, which comes with marinated tofu, greens and roasted red pepper. And though it’s not always on the menu, their vegan Lasagna is downright delicious. Definitely catch it when you can. 
Brighter Day
Neighboring The Sentient Bean, Brighter Day is a natural foods store with plenty of plant-based options. They have a deli with fresh smoothies and sandwiches available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Their Tastes Like Tuna Salad vegan sandwich is true to the name, and the Cucumber Hummus is another great option. 
Put these vegan-friendly eateries on your dining bucket list and find time to visit them soon. You won’t regret it. 
The ShowEnmarket Arena’s Exciting November Lineup
The Ghost Pirates are making their debut at the Enmarket Arena in November. But they aren’t the only action the arena is getting. Quite a few noteworthy names will be taking the stage soon. In case you’re wondering who’s coming to the Enmarket Arena this month, I’ve got you covered. If you’d like to see any of the following acts, be sure to get your tickets asap. They might sell out pretty quickly. 
Brantley Gilbert & Jelly Roll
Brantley Gilbert & Jelly Roll, the dynamic duo behind rock/rap/country hit “Son of the Dirty South”, are coming to Savannah on Friday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Gilbert’s gritty vocals and Jelly Roll’s emotional verses will make for a stellar show like none other.

The legendary Reba McEntire will be live in concert on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. She will be joined by Canadian country star Terri Clark. You can expect powerhouse vocals that Reba is known for as she performs her many classics. If you love quintessential country music, you won’t want to miss out on Reba. 
Adam Sandler
Hilarious comedian and Hollywood star, Adam Sandler will take the Enmarket Arena stage on Monday, Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. He’ll be performing one night in Savannah as a part of his 22-city fall stand-up tour. He’s also bringing a surprise special guest. Wonder who that might be. You’ll have to attend to find out. Look forward to side-splitting standup and a little music as well. The show is intended for mature audiences, so expect some off-color comedy.

Learn and GrowHostess City History: Savannah Cotton Exchange
At 100 East Bay Street, you’ll find a stunning red edifice that bears the words Savannah Cotton Exchange on its terra cotta facade. Originally erected in 1887, the Savannah Cotton Exchange was once the epicenter of economic activity in Savannah, back when cotton was king. At the time, the Hostess City was ranked first as a cotton seaport on the Atlantic. It was also ranked second in the world. During its prime, the exchange moved more than two million bales through the city each year. 
The Savannah Cotton Exchange was designed by nationally-acclaimed architect William Gibbons Preston, who beat out more than ten other architects in a competition. Preston’s design was unique, situating the building in the middle of an already existing street. To this day, the exchange is one of the only buildings in the world constructed in this manner. Built of red brick with iron window lintels and copper ornaments, the building is an excellent example of Romantic Revival architecture. 
The exchange remained active until 1951 when it went out of business. Since closing, it was briefly occupied by the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce. Then in 1976, it became home to Solomon’s Masonic Lodge. At certain times throughout the year, the Masons host local fundraising events and open the exchange up to visitors. For the most part, however, it remains closed to the public. The building has experienced erosion through the years, but it still leaves a lasting impression. 
The next time you find yourself strolling on Bay St., stop by the Savannah Cotton Exchange and read the marker to learn more about its rich history.
