When it comes to restaurants in Florence, nobody is doing the kind of quality vegan and vegetarian dishes that you'll find at Libreria Brac, a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it spot on a small street close to the Arno River. Not to mention also operating as a space that has books, good coffee, and interesting wine. The menu changes frequently, but you’ll always find seasonal pastas, variations on lasagna, salads, and vegan options that pack a punch—their homemade seitan is an explosion of cumin, cloves, coriander, and kombu seaweed. Potato-stuffed tortellini are a Tuscan staple, but Brac makes it their own by adding ginger, spicy tomato sauce, arugula pesto, and plenty of herbs. Snag a spot on the courtyard that makes you feel like you’re on an acid trip or simply miles away from the Ponte Vecchio crowds.
