You might not know it from the number of soul-food and barbecue restaurants, but being a vegetarian in Jackson isn’t as difficult as it once was. At the same time, it takes more than a plate of leafy greens to please the palate of a discerning vegetarian. That’s where Rainbow Co-op and High Noon Cafe come in.
High Noon has been a staple within Jackson’s vegetarian community since it opened in 1982, two years after its parent store opened. High Noon offers dairy-free, gluten-free and meat-free dishes without sacrificing taste. The menu includes a black bean and spinach burrito, a Portabella Caesar salad and the High Noon Burger, the restaurant’s signature beet burger, as well as daily specials.
For masters of vegetarian cooking, Rainbow Co-op is definitely the place to go. Rainbow provides health-conscious Jacksonians with a place to shop, eat and socialize. From organic peanut butter and local and regional produce to Zum bath collections, Rainbow stocks its shelves to satisfy everyone. —Pamela Hosey
