My husband and I found this place by Googling "Vegan Restaurant" at lunchtime on our trip through Memphis. I got 'turkey cutlets' with mashed potatoes and greens, and my husband got the Big Smack burger which has to be tasted to be believed! Take your non-vegan doubters here!

My wife and I cannot say enough great things about this place and it's menu! The food, staff and atmosphere was simply warm and wonderful! We do not have a vegan restaurant where we live so to find a place like this was truly a blessing! We will be coming back really soon!!!!

I love Imagine Vegan Cafe! I first came here a couple of years ago with my mom and around that time we haven't had anything vegan that really blew us away. That day we had the spinach dip, which is really delicious, the 'barbecue' sandwich and the sample platter (the buffalo 'wings' are so good). On other occasions I tried... More

You go to Imagine to eat almost any southern comfort food you want but you are served it as a plant-based food that is so delicious, you are in awe. Everything on the menu calls out to be ordered so be careful. Desserts too are a vegan feast.

This is my favorite restaurant. I find myself having to drive to Memphis just to be able to eat out! I haven't ever had anything that wasn't good here. I love the shrimp po-boy, spinach artichoke dip, jerk chicken & the reuben sandwich. The pasta is very good & try the bleu cheese dressing. The desserts are my favorite. The... More

The owners, Adam and Christie are lovely people. Only employ vegans which is great. Menu is varied and generally good. Some dishes aren't especially healthy (like the wavy chips) and they unfortunately don't do "fancy" coffees, like cappuccinos/lattes. Really nice cakes. I have been several times. Only time I was really disappointed was on a Sunday when an absolute air-head... More
