Delicious and tasty, nutritious and hearty, the Welsh capital is home to some of the most scrumptious plant-based restaurants in the whole of Wales. From vegetarian eateries to meat free markets, there are so many luscious vegan restaurants in Cardiff. So, whether you love comfort food or easy eats, we have a restaurant for you.
Indeed, there are so many amazing vegan restaurants in the capital, we thought it best to put together a helpful guide to make sure you don’t miss out.
Check out our countdown of some of the best vegan restaurants in Cardiff.
Anna-Loka was the Welsh capitals only 100% vegan cafe back in 2015; It now serves an entire menu of Vegan alternatives to classic dishes. The cosy cafe serves up a whole host of plant-based meals, be it custom-made pizzas, pancakes, scrambled tofu and smoky, vegan bacon.
When you can’t eat any more of these delicious dishes, make sure to wash them down with a cup of Kombucha – or ‘the tea of immortality’ – an alcohol-free, fermented tea which tastes like apple cider.
Not only is Anna-Loka a hidden treasure, but it is also one of the best vegan restaurants in Cardiff.

go to cardiff market, go to the clancy’s stand, buy anything because goodness knows choosing one thing was hard enough, enjoy the deliciousness (and maybe also the view from above) (pictured: falafel and butternut bhaji wrap with houmous, salad, and something else i can’t remember, all warmed up) #vegancardiff #veganwales #vegan
As their name implies, Clancy’s is less of a restaurant and more of a cacophony of delicious foods and plant-based treasures.
An indoor market staple since 2013, Clancy’s Vegetarian Emporium specialises in “ready-to-eat” plant-based food, herbs, teas and spices. Moreover, this self-proclaimed emporium uses recyclable materials whenever possible.
Ideal for those lunch breaks when you don’t know what you want, Clancy’s Vegetarian Emporium is the perfect place to dine in the capital.
The Vegan Box
“The Vegan Box is committed to producing and stocking food that is plant-based, cruelty-free, sustainable and ‘bangin –” their words, not ours. Owned by an ex-barista and a self-confessed vegan junk food fanatic, The Vegan Box is trying to change the world one vegan burger at a time.
From seitan bacon baps to pancakes and meat-free fried chicken, The Vegan Box epitomises everything we love about food and is a firm favourite amongst locals.
The Bee & Honey
Based in Canton, The Bee & Honey is as wonderful and picturesque as it sounds. The team over at the Canton cafe are extremely dedicated to sourcing fresh, quality, plant-based produce; making it one of the best vegan restaurants in Cardiff.
Their spiced tofu sandwich is one of the tastiest lunch options around. The Bee & Honey also peddle work from local artists, with a portion of the profits going to charity.
Not only is The Bee & Honey a delicious place to eat, but it is also the perfect place to kick back and unwind.
Everything in this eatery is 100% vegan. From thirst quenching drinks to delicious food, Blanche Bakery is one of the finest vegan restaurants in Cardiff. We can’t recommend their French toast doughnut’s – which are coated in a cinnamon glaze and topped with powdered sugar and fresh berries – enough.
This quaint cafe, with its whitewash store front and floor length windows, is beautiful to look at also. So, head down to MacKintosh Place and devour some delicious plant-based produce.
