Bahama Breeze Sanford (Vegan Guide)
Bahama Breeze has been a family favorite ever since we moved to Florida from South Africa. My grandma, particularly, has always been a fan of the restaurant, ordering Salmon and Margaritas. Since going vegan, we don't go as often because I've always assumed the plant-based selection would be small. In researching for this article, I found that, in fact, there are quite a few solid options for vegans who find themselves at Bahama Breeze. See below for my guide to eating vegan at Bahama Breeze!
