The most canonical definition of veganism would be the one from The Vegan Society. The Vegan Society was founded by Donald Watson, who coined the term vegan.
Donald Watson originally defined vegans as "non-dairy vegetarians". The definition was updated to its current definition when The Vegan Society became a registered charity in 1997. (source)

Even if the site is not specialized for veg*n places, Foursquare could suit your needs. Another drawback is that it doesn't seems to have a more precise filter than "Vegetarian/Vegan".
But it does have social functionalities and allow you to follow people or (vegan?) lists among posting photos and reviews of places.
An advantage is that they provide a free ...
