Umami Burger- (LA, San Fran) Umami, in my opinion, is the end all be all when it comes to burgers, and their Earth Burger is out of this world. The patty is made out of mushrooms and edamame, and it’s topped with white soy aioli, truffle ricotta, cipollini onions, lettuce, and slow roasted tomatoes. Trust me, this might be one of the tastiest, high-end veggies burgers you will ever try…

Cafe Gratitude- (LA, San Fran) This vegan mecca cooks up a superb veggie burger. The “I am Magical” is a bean patty made luscious with the addition of their wonderful spicy chipotle ketchup and organic whole wheat bun. Definitely order it with the macadamia cheddar, avocado, and coconut bacon—yes, coconut bacon!!!
Upper West- (LA) The Roasted Veggie Burger is unctuous and delicious, elevated further with the use of a brioche bun. The veggie burger patty is housemade and adorned with grilled pineapple relish, avocado, piquillo pepper, tomato aioli
Westville- (NYC) Westville’s veggie burger is quite unique in that it is flash fried to create satisfying texture and deep flavor. The Portuguese bun, mushrooms, and tar tar sauce add wonderful dimension, and I suggest you order it with swiss, cheddar, or smoked gouda for that extra yum
5 Napkin burger- (NYC) This NYC burger joint makes a mean veggie burger. The patty is loaded with black beans, barley, brown rice, carrots, beets, jalapenos, and sesame seeds, all drizzled with the 5N creamy sauce. It has satisfying crunch, wonderful moisture, and insane flavor
Native Foods- (Various Locations) Native Foods does vegan food just right. Their Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger is killer—it’s comprised of thin slice of seitan meat, caramelized onions, vegan cheddar, romaine, carrots, tomato, and “bacon.” Everything gets a good hit of barbecue sauce and ranch dressing, and topped with battered pickle chips. This burger is the epitome of a healthy indulgence

Hillstone- (Various Locations) Hillstone’s House-Made Veggie Burger is huge and scrumptious! The patty, made with brown rice, beets, black beans, and prunes is covered with a sweet soy glaze and melted Swiss cheese. This veggie burger is pretty close to perfect, and with numerous locations around the country, it’s accessible too!
Shake Shack- (East Coast, Middle East) While the Shake Shack ‘Shroom Burger is not the healthiest on this list, it might be the best indulgence. It’s made with a crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with melted muenster and cheddar cheeses, topped with lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce. The ShackSauce is intoxicatingly good, as is the perfect mushy bun it comes on. You’ve got the crunch and ooze factor going on here, and its so divine

This burger has a scrumptious meaty quality when you bite into it that will satisfy your burger cravings

But the real winner here is their House Veggie and Grain Burger; the veggie patty is made with rice, zucchini, beans, peppers, and mixed veggies, and it’s complimented with aged cheddar, eggplant, tomato, and pesto mayo— this veggie burger is outrageously next level delicious and fancy
The Farm Cafe- (Portlad) The Farmhouse Veggie Burger is a mixture of eggplant, breadcrumbs, cheese, and spices, beautifully compiled on a rustic bun filled with caramelized onions, lettuce, roasted red pepper, Dijon mustard, and seasonal pickles. The eggplant gives the burger a meaty, rich, umami quality that will definitely knock your socks off
