Named by USA Today as one of the top 20 vegan restaurants in the Southeast, Plant Bae is an all-American vegan restaurant with locations in downtown Montgomery, Alabama as well as central Opelika, Alabama. While the menu is meat- and dairy-free, the taste is universal. We invite herbivores, omnivores, and anyone in between to try it out so they can say, "I've been Bae'd."

The Plant Bae story started in early 2018, when Dr. Quebe Merritt decided to become vegan. A series of events helped her make the decision. She'd had trouble nursing her daughter and later realized her child did not respond well when she consumed dairy. In addition, a visit to the doctor's office revealed that Quebe's cholesterol levels were higher than normal, thus solidifying her decision to remove meat and dairy from her diet. After being vegan for two years; traveling across the country eating plant-based food in New York, Las Vegas, and Atlanta; and catering vegan food in her hometown, Dr. Que opened her first restaurant in Montgomery, AL on May 8, 2020. Dr. Que opened her second location, Plant Bae Express, on Nov. 8, 2022. This location is nestled in Opelika, Alabama, and is approximately five miles from the campus of Auburn University.
