Finding a restaurant that satisfies all your health wants and needs can be difficult. Luckily, Boulder is not new to the clean eating category. While vegetarian, vegan, paleo-friendly, and gluten-free eateries are on the rise, what sets the good ones apart from the great ones are the use of local and organic ingredients. Here are five of the best organic restaurants in Boulder.

From burgers and chicken wings to tacos and wraps, Native Foods Cafe has something on the menu for everyone, and the best part is it’s all vegetarian! All meat dishes are prepared with a plant-based substitute to give you an authentic dish without the animal protein.

While the food here is delicious, many head to Native Foods for their vegan desserts. You can’t go wrong with the Oatmeal Cream Pie, the Peanut Butter Parfait, or a variety of freshly baked cupcakes.
