7 Best Vegan Cafes in Sydney

7 Best Vegan Cafes in Sydney

The abundance of eggs and salmon in my recipes might be a giveaway that I’m no vegan. But damn, I do love health food, and you can trust these awesome cafes to serve up deliciously guilt-free dishes, sans animal products. Hells yes! Check out my 7 Best Vegan Cafes in Sydney right here:



The new kid on the block. VERD is offering up a delicious range of plant-based bowls, but if they don’t rock your boat, you can build your own. Recently opened in two spots around Sydney – head to either their Barangaroo joint OR the new one in Surry Hills. YAY! I love the O.G. Macro Bowl with tempeh bacon. They also have heaps of delicious smoothies, nut-mylk coffees and raw treats too.

Shop 5, Scotch Row, Barangaroo South |


Venus Whole Foods

This gem is nestled just a short stroll away from Taylor Square and provides solace from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. With salads changing daily, you can opt for one, two or all three choices in your bowl, and select your own dressings. My favourite? The miso-almond dressing on ANYTHING. Really, they’re all winning.

425 Bourke Street, Surry Hills |


Nourishing Quarter

Don’t be fooled by its eclectic interior – this place is dishing up clean, delicious vegan food daily. They offer a fusion of Latin American superfoods with an exotic, Asian twist and promise to nourish you from within. Many dishes include gluten-free ancient grains, leaving you satisfied for hours.

315 Cleveland Street, Redfern |


Pana Chocolate

After critical acclaim amongst Melbournites, Sydney finally has it’s own Pana Cafe filled with beautiful raw chocolates, cheesecakes (pictured) and even their own granola. Small but perfectly formed, there is some outdoor seating for summer days so you can enjoy your tea and cake in the fresh air. Read more about the Pana Chocolate cafe opening right here.

21 Fountain Street, Alexandria |



Though not strictly a vegan cafe, the choice of food here is incredible. Grab a food tray and fill up on zucchini noodles, walnut taco mince, and don’t forget that raw tomato relish. If your sweet tooth is calling, try their house-made caramel slice to end on a high note.

bowls + smoothies at VERD

Ungaro Raw

With raw, organic and vegan options available, this one is a real winner for the whole tribe. Their breakfast menu is served all day, and the lunch menu has plenty of choice for vegans and meat-eaters alike. Take your buddies and enjoy the Raw Spicy Almond Tacos with tomato, corn salsa & cashew cream after browsing the local markets opposite.

656 Darling Street, Rozelle |


Earth to Table

Opened by raw chef Julie Mitsios, the Earth to Table offer daily vegan specials (hello quiche), awesome smoothies, and even ‘raw’ coffees. Every dish is nourishing yet carefully considered and beautifully presented. That rainbow kelp noodle salad is a mainstay on the menu for good reason.

85 Bronte Road, Bondi Junction |

    Manoosh in Enmore and Marrickville offer a massive range of vegetarian and vegan options. All of our pizzas have the option of substituting in Diaya vegan cheese, plus we have a selection of vegan wraps, sides like falafel and vegan kebbeh and also vegan icecream!

    One Earth cafe on Willoughby Rd in Willoughby, is a great healthy organic produce cafe catering for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
    Yulli’s in Surry Hills for some of the best veg and vegan food in Sydney plus vegan wine and beers (something most people don’t even realise is often touched by dairy, egg &/or fish product).
    Lastly GiGi’s for vegan Italian/pizza and Golden Lotus for vegan Chinese/Vietnamese, both are in Newtown on the southern end of King St.
