Hopefully, nowadays everyone should be aware that a meal does not necessarily have to contain meat. Vegetarian cuisine is very diverse too and healthy on top of that. In order to appeal to the conscience, it is important to point out that a meat-free diet is more environmentally friendly than eating meat. There are many restaurants or cafés in Dublin that offer vegetarian and vegan food. Here you can read which ones are particularly worth a visit.
In the middle of Wicklow Street, a quieter place off Grafton Street, there is “Cornucopia“. From a Granola Bowl in the morning to a wrap for lunch to tasty dinner like “Creamy Tofu pie with Cauliflower, wakame, braised fennel topped with scallion mash” – you can eat there at any time of the day. Even for some pastries and a coffee in the afternoon. Cornucopia is still a family-run business and the cosy ambience in retro style invites you to linger.
Location: 19-20 Wicklow St, Dublin
Vegan Sandwich Co
Vegan Sandwich Co offers you much better stuff and it’s all vegan. But just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean you have to go without a taste of meat. By first seeing the menu you probably think that’s not a vegan place: Roast Chic*n, crispy bac*on, pastr*mi. But the “*” represents that it only tastes like meat, but it isn’t real. They also treat you with burgers, wraps, bowls and kebab as well as sweet treats like cupcakes or cookies. Vegan Sandwich Co has its stores in Smithfield and St. Stephen Green.
Location: 6 Queen St, Smithfield, Dublin
Also known as “Sova Vegan Butcher”, the vegan restaurant just changed its location to Dublin 8 and its name to “Coco Sova” and now offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their motto is still the same: “Tasty, Healthy, Heavy, Sexy” and their menu is quite diverse. Their vegan sushi is an inside tip.
Location: 51 Pleasants St, Saint Kevin’s, Dublin
The “V” in “V-Face” stands for vegan. And their faces have many expressions: Burgers, toasties, a hot dog and a nice selection of sides as well as treats. All their stuff looks very fancy. By ordering the “Mac D Lad Burger”, you’ll get your Smashed Beyond patty in a black burger bun, isn’t that cool? And that’s not because the burger is burnt, but because it contains charcoal. This makes every visit to V-Face a special experience with good-looking und good-tasting food!
