Lemon Leaf Café: Fresh, delicious, and happy to oblige a meat-free diet, the Lemon Leaf Café is a favorite among our vegetarian guests. Try a bite of the Malibu Salad with mixed greens, dried cranberries, bleu cheese, walnuts, and sliced apples, and topped off with raspberry vinaigrette. We also recommend the double black bean burger, which comes on a perfectly toasted roll with tomato, lettuce and cheese. Yum!

Café Sado: If you enjoy Thai food, then you’ll love Café Sado with its mouthwatering variety of both vegetarian and vegan options! For vegetarian sushi enthusiasts, you won’t want to miss the aubergine roll (made with roasted butternut squash and crispy eggplant) and the garden roll (made with crispy zucchini tempura and avocado)—absolutely delicious!

Evergrain Bakery: You may think that a bakery is an odd place for us to recommend for a meal, but Evergrain offers a whole lot more than just freshly-baked carbs! Sure, there will definitely be carbs, but it comes in the form of scones, cookies, spinach and feta croissants, and more. Treat yourself to a veggie friendly lunch of organic kale salad and tasty vegetarian sandwiches.

Chestertown Natural Foods: We’re cheating a little bit on this one since it’s not actually a restaurant. However, Chestertown Natural Foods provides amazing local ingredients for you to pick up and prepare either during your stay at Great Oak Manor or once you return home. Check out the selection of organic produce (the largest selection on the Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland!), fresh fruits, herbs and spices, breads, coffee, and a lot more.

We want our vegetarian friends to feel welcomed and at home here in Chestertown, MD, so book your stay at Great Oak Manor, and try out one or more of the eateries listed above!
