175 Lee St, Montgomery, AL 36104
Between Christmas dinners and New Year’s feasts, it can be easy to pack on unwanted weight, but Plant Bae’s delicious selections can keep you from experiencing the dreaded food hangovers that the holidays are known for. Started in early 2020 by Dr. Quebe Bradford and her husband, Mr. Eric Bradford, Plant Bae offers non-meat and non-dairy dining options and is Montgomery’s only fully vegan restaurant.
We hope you found something special for that special someone or maybe even for yourself.
