About Pingala Cafe

Pingala Cafe is a warm, welcoming place that serves up food truck inspired cuisine & culture, and, it just so happens to be one of the most magical places on earth. Here at Pingala, we have an inside-out approach to everything we do; It's not the food we make, it's why we make it. It's not the ingredients we use, it's the ingredients we don't use. And it's not to turn everybody vegan, It's to make vegan food fun, delicious, and approachable. Having said that, most of us here at Pingala believe that veganism is an extremely liberating, thriving, and enjoyable lifestyle that can work for everyone. Our operation is a labor of love.
We are based in Burlington, Vermont, our kitchen and cafe overlooks the Winooski river. We also run two food trucks during the summer seasons, the Broccoli Bar and the Carrot Cart.
We look forward to meeting you!
