POPULAR VEGETARIAN EATERIES with LOTS OF VEGAN DISHES

 

WILD FOOD CAFÉ – Neal’s Yard (Covent Garden) & Islington

http://www.wildfoodcafe.com

Plant based/raw.  Raw and whole food veggie cafe for organic dishes; there is no use of refined sugar, gluten, or over-processed ingredients such as wheat, peanuts and soy.

 

MILDREDS – Soho, Kings Cross, Camden, Dalston

www.mildreds.co.uk/

DYL has a lot of LOVE for this place! Good for a casual lunch or special occasion dinner, Mildreds has been a long time favourite restaurant for vegans even before Veganism became popular in London.

You can’t go wrong at Mildreds, one of the original London veggie restaurants.  The first and busiest branch is in a beautiful old townhouse in the heart of Soho, they don’t take bookings so you might have to wait for a table but it’s worth it; although there is a room upstairs that you can book for private dining.  The other three newer branches are bigger, modern and quite chic.

They aren’t dog friendly which is a shame but you can order on Deliveroo too and enjoy at home.
Mildreds has a massive veggie menu with lots of vegan options, as well as gluten-free options; They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they also do interesting vegan cocktails.  DYL recommends the epic vegan full English breakfast with fresh orange juice (pictured), perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch, or try the Sri Lankan curry for dinner with a side of sweet potato fries!

 

TIBITS – Mayfair, Southwark

https://www.tibits.co.uk/en

Vegetarian and vegan restaurant with a buffet style lunch and dinner, take away also available. Salads, hot dishes, soups, sandwiches and desserts.

Heddon St, Bankside
Every Tuesday (from 11.30am onwards) the buffet food boat is completely vegan and free of any animal involvement.  On every other day the food boat is at least 80% vegan.  There are lots of vegan options and everything is clearly labelled.  The food is very varied so there should be something for everyone; the deserts are pretty good too, the sticky toffee pudding is especially yummy.
It’s not the cheapest as it’s done by weight, so keep an eye on how much you are putting on there, otherwise you’ll get a shock; on the plus side it’s quick and easy and they have lots of outdoor seating for the summer months.

 

FARMACY – Westbourne Grove

https://www.farmacylondon.com/

Plant based. Free from dairy, refined sugars, additives and chemicals.

A bit expensive but very nice, Farmacy is a beautiful restaurant with lovely staff; full of beautiful West London people (David Beckham is a diner – you get the idea!). Here you will find healthy comfort food, things like pizza and nachos and mac n cheese.  A good combination to order is the Mexican bowl and the O.M.G. shot (wildcrafted CBD, flaxseed oil & grapefruit) followed by the brownie sundae.  They do lots of fresh juices and smoothies and fun ‘syringe shots’ that are served in a actual syringe (see pic).  Lots of interesting ingredients are used such as mama, reishi, lucama, change and more that you might never even have heard of!  If you’re into eating healthily and organic this place is a must.

 

DELICIOUSLY ELLA – Weighthouse Street, Mayfair

https://deliciouslyella.com/our-delis/weighhouse-street/

Plant based café.

The cafe is beautiful to look at and everything is healthy and delicious.  DYL highly recommends this place and it’s also passed the test with many non-vegans so it’s a great place to take your non-vegan friends.
They are dog friendly and have loads of seating upstairs and also downstairs so you never have to wait for a table.  There is hot food, salads, soups, cakes, hot drinks, juices and smoothes; everything is so good it’s hard to choose what to have!  Recommend to try include the corn bread and chilli (pictured) and the brownies, which are the best!
Ella’s cookery book is also a great resource for vegan recipes and dishes.

THE GATE RESTAURANT

https://thegaterestaurants.com 

-Marylebone, Angel and Hammersmith ( in St.Johns Wood opening in March )

One of the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the capital since 1989.
Offers inspiring vegetarian and vegan food with Mediterranean twist.  They are beautifully presented and delicious !
Enjoy the food in relaxed atmosphere.

FARM GIRL CAFE (£)
“a country farm house feel crossed with a California coastal vibe” Restaurant in Notting Hill, Chelsea(Kings Road and Fulham Road ) and Soho (in store cafe at Sweaty Betty).  Offers gluten Free, dairy free, nut free vegetarian, and vegan food.

Hidden in Notting Hill, expect to wait on weekends – this place is popular!  It’s not fully vegan but there are lots of vegan options on the menu and plenty of cool vegan drinks; butterfly matcha anyone?

They have all the milk types you could ever want; almond, coconut, hazelnut, cashew, browns rice and oat, you can also add an extra shot of CDB oil to your drinks.  A recommendation off the menu is the coconut BLT, the coconut bacon is pretty good!

The seats are comfy and the interiors are beautifully done, they are dog friendly and there’s a resident french bull dog who’s face adorns the lattes (see pic).  It’s a bit expensive but I guess that’s the price you have to pay (no pun intended) for beautiful interiors and yummy food.

There’s a newer, smaller branch with a smaller menu upstairs at the Sweaty Betty Superstore on Carnaby Street that’s worth a visit too (see pic)

LEAF WILD (£)
Ladbroke Grove, West London.
