5. One Happy Bowl

Open hours:

Open daily 8:00am-4:00pm

Sunday Brunch: Sundays 9:00am-12:00pm


When One Happy Bowl opened their doors in November 2018, gluten free/vegan dining was revolutionized on the island. Before then, trying to find meals for specific diets was a dicey game of: can you put the fundamental building blocks of this meal on the side, please? Anyone who experiences Celiac Disease (or loves someone who does) knows what we’re talking about all too well.

You’ll never have to play that game at One Happy Bowl. Their entire menu is entirely vegan and gluten free. The only thing you’ll have to worry about at One Happy Bowl is deciding what you’re going to order!
