About us

The Green Owl Cafe is Madison's only vegetarian and vegan restaurant.

Since 2009, The Green Owl Cafe has aimed to provide Madison with the tastiest of heartwarming vegan comfort food, and as Madison’s longest-running completely vegetarian and vegan restaurant, we believe we have succeeded. While our emphasis is on take-out, we also have a cozy and casual ambiance with counter service and roughly 30 seats for dine in; including a full-service bar with local beers and spirits and a seasonal patio. Our goal at The Green Owl Cafe is to create dishes that bring all appetites and diets together for the same thing: a delicious meal. Our menu includes a variety of shareable and small plate appetizers, lunch and dinner items with an emphasis on weekly specials, and our famous rotating dessert menu made by our in-house savant of all things sweet Cara Mosley.
