These are the absolute Best Plant-Based burgers in town, according to 614 feast

Anthony O'Connell

Plant-based burgers are a great choice for those who don’t eat meat or are simply looking to mix things up. I love a well-crafted, house-made veggie burger; my favorites are made from TVP (textured vegetable protein), seitan (a protein-rich wheat gluten), or a hearty bean base. Not only are these options protein-packed, but the veggie burgers made right here in Columbus are seriously feast-worthy. Let’s explore the best local options.

SŌW Plated (1625 W. Lane Ave.)
Enjoy the vegan SŌW Burger: a vibrant green chickpea and pepper patty topped with curry aioli and a pickled cabbage-onion slaw, all on a seeded bun. It’s fresh, nutritious, and delicious— aligning perfectly with their focus on wellness and mindful eating.

Seitan’s Realm (3496 N. High St)
Hail Seitan! Try the Bacun Cheeze Burger, a devilishly good burger that features a house-made seitan patty with two pieces of bacun, chedduh cheeze, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and pickles on a brioche bun. This family-owned vegan deli crafts all their seitan and sauces from scratch daily—a true testament to homemade quality.

Zammy’s Vegan Kitchen (1155 Worthington Woods Blvd.)
The Zack Burger is a fiery vegan burger made from a house-made TVP patty, topped with Follow Your Heart pepper jack cheese, spinach, tomato, and smashed avocado, and drizzled with a creamy jalapeno sauce on a toasted brioche bun. It’s a spicy, 100% vegan delight!

Arch City Tavern (862 N. High St.)
Whether your go to burger is beef, bison, or beans, Arch City Tavern has you covered. Their Spiced Bean Burger features a house-made walnut black bean patty with lettuce, tomato, sautéed onions, cheddar cheese, and a special sauce that’s bursting with flavor.

Northstar Café (multiple locations)

Treat yourself to the Northstar Burger, a unique blend of organic black beans, brown rice, and beets, topped with white cheddar, kale, tomato, pickle, and onion. For a twist, substitute the cheddar with pimento cheese. It’s delicious as is but can also be made vegan by opting for no cheese.
