Now that I’ve been vegan coming on nearly 2 years (November is my veganniversary) I’ve amassed quite a knowledge of very delicious vegan restaurants and cafes in London.
When I first went vegan I spent a lot of time trawling the internet, looking at those annoying nutritional info pdfs for chain restaurants and using the HappyCow app (if you don’t have it, get it)
Here’s a list of some of the ones I really enjoy with bonus iphone photos.
12-14 Heddon St, London W1B 4DA
020 7758 4110
Tibits is a buffet style vegetarian restaurant with a giant selection of vegan food. You pay per kilo – they weigh your plate at the counter. Mine always ends up weighing an atrocious amount – I blame the vegan onion rings!
44 Cloth Fair
020 7600 7778
43 New Oxford St
020 7836 7509
Amico Bio has two locations in London and a restaurant in Italy! It’s an Italian vegan restaurant but not in the stereotypical sense that everything is pizza. I’ve had some really delicious tempura here. They also use rice mozarella in their vegan dishes which I haven’t seen anywhere else. As a mayo connoisseur – their vegan mayonnaise is REALLY amazing – I want the recipe.
370 St John St, London EC1V 4NN
51 Queen Caroline St, Greater London W6 9QL
I’ve already written about my great love affair with the Islington branch of The Gate here. I will repeat again though – GET THE POLENTA CHIPS!
45 Lexington St, London W1F 9AN
Oh Mildred’s, how do I love thee, let me count the ways…
Mildred’s is tiny and there are always queues in the evening because all the food is delicious. I would live here if I could. Their basil mayo rocks my world.
103 Hampstead Rd
020 7387 4064
Separate vegan menu! Mexican food! Tequila bar!
222 Veggie Vegan
222 N End Rd, London W14 9NU
222 has a really nice homey vibe to it. It almost feels like you’ve gone to one of your friend’s houses for dinner.
669 Holloway Rd, London, City of London, Greater London N19 5SE
There are Loving Hut branches all over the world. My local one does a great vegan “egg” fried rice, mock sesame chicken and vegan fish and chips!
The prawn crackers taste like prawn, it’s all very confusing but delicious. It’s also pretty damn cheap.
250 Camden High St, London NW1 8QS
Eating at InSpiral makes you feel like you are super healthy and awesome. Lots of raw food, fresh juices and smoothies!
They sell their own kale chips and other raw snacks.
Cookies N’ Scream
The Market Hall
Camden Lock Place
Cookies N’ Scream is like the Valhalla of vegan and gluten-free baked goods. Their milkshakes are incredible.
They make these amazing cookie in a brownie things called Bowsers. Go visit the girls and get one!
408 Coldharbour Ln, London SW9 8LF
If you haven’t heard of Ms Cupcake then you have been living under a rock. Queen of vegan baked goods, writer of an awesome cookery book. They make Ferrero rocher cupcakes – enough said.
These are not strictly full vegan or vegetarian restaurants or are chain restaurants.
32 The Broadway, London N8 9SU
Riley gets a mention because of their awesome sorbets and coffees. Their soya milk lattes are so damn good. Get a chocolate sorbet, you won’t regret it.
Le Pain Quotidien
Multiple London locations
So many vegan options here! Such a blessing. The salads are great. as well as the hummus sharing platter!
Try the pear and chocolate cake.
The Stapleton Tavern
2-4 Crouch Hill, London N4 4AU
A pub with vegan food! Hooray!
The baba ganoush here is out of this world. There’s also a really great atmosphere inside, very laid back.
So there we have it. Most of the vegan places I’ve eaten in the last two years-ish in London!
