Today is World Vegan Day and so to celebrate we’ve put together some of our favourite places to grab a plant-based bite to eat around town…
Vegan fast food like never before! Offering an array of finger-licking vegan fare, including the tastiest ‘Southern Fried Fricken’ you’re likely to find. Growing in popularity with its 100% vegan menu, don’t miss out on sampling Junk it Up’s deliciously ethical comfort food.
Looking for an elegant evening out with all the trimmings? Look no further than The Bohemian! Exquisitely decorated and ideally located right in the centre of town, we highly recommend their irresistible pulled jackfruit dishes.
Café by day, gourmet restaurant by night, Sky Apple has been specialising in vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free cuisine in the heart of Heaton for over 15 years. Using only the finest, locally sourced ingredients, try the hearty Cuban Stew and Dumplings, you won’t be disappointed.
One of the shiny-newest additions to our list, Humpit opened its doors right here in our very own Students’ Union this September! It’s never been easier to grab a healthy, heavenly hummus and falafel pitta between lectures. Over 1 million hummus lovers can’t be wrong!
Tea Sutra claims to be ‘An island of calm floating above the bustle of the city of Newcastle’ and we couldn’t agree more! If exploring exotic infusions in an ornate setting is your cup of tea, then you’ll be in your element with over 100 varieties to taste. Not to mention their flavourful vegan menu and celebrated selection of cakes!
Another animal-friendly lunch-time favourite, Super Natural serves an array of well-seasoned wraps, paninis and baked potatoes, alongside delectable daily specials. Plus, venture along of a Friday evening and settle down with an almond milk hot chocolate to enjoy live music from local artists in this cosy café, complete with twinkling fairy lights.
If you’re seeking a herbivore hangout that’s sure to impress your carnivore friends, Grumpy Panda is a perfect choice. Laying claim to the title of the North East’s only American-style vegan diner, think burgers, ribs and shakes galore! Located over the river in Gateshead, it’s well worth the trip.
One of the oldest pubs in leafy Ouseburn, The Ship Inn offers one of the very best (if not THE best!) vegan Sunday Roasts in town. Dine alfresco in the summer months and enjoy tip-top scran before walking it off with a stroll along the canal or around friendly Ouseburn Farm.
100% vegan 100% of the time and just steps from Monument in the trendy new Stack shipping container village, Hungry Vegan serves up a plethora of scrumptious, plant-based sarnies to suit all tastes. Plus, you’ll not want to miss their tasty new cheese and ham vegan pastries, all freshly baked in-house.
Undoubtedly a dining experience like no other, Kiln Workshop & Kitchen delivers mouth-watering vegan options alongside a working pottery and ceramics workshop. Marvel at the workshop’s latest carefully crafted creations as you tuck into a wholesome helping of their Dhun’s Chickpea Stew.
Nestled in a railway arch close to Central Station, dine below a sky of paper moons at one of our very favourite independent pizzerias in the Toon. Not only will Herb Garden‘s quirky setting sweep you off your feet (prepare to be greeted by Herby the life-sized, roller-skating horse!), but their vegan-friendly pizza selection and array of satisfying salads are nothing to be brayed at either!
