I was sitting having a coffee in the early afternoon and noticed there weren’t many vegan options I’d like to try at the place I was at the time, and the prices weren’t really my taste. I also realized I had never been to a fully vegan restaurant before and would really like to go. As a disclosure, I myself am not a full vegan – however, I have developed a health condition that prevents me from eating dairy now and therefore I like to use vegan products to replace the dairy products I used to love. Visiting a fully vegan restaurant was the best idea I had for lunch that day. I simply typed ‘vegan food’ into my GPS on my phone, and the first choice that came up said Detroit Vegan Soul.
