Over the past few years, Liverpool has embraced the vegetarian and vegan movement with open arms, with new and exciting veggie restaurants popping up all over the city, all the time.

Making sushi vegan-friendly is Izakaya on Castle Street. With a range of vegan dishes from their menu, it’s hard to choose just one that is a must-try vegan dish in Liverpool.
For a classic Asian dish, try out their Mushroom Ramen. With crispy mushroom gyozas, noodles and a whole array of tasty greens.
Full Vegan Breakfast
While Leaf may be famous for its unbelievable range of artisan teas, it’s also the place to be food on Bold Street.
Their choice for vegan dishes is nearly as impressive as their choice of teas. The best of the best? Their Full English Breakfast – vegan style.
Featuring falafel sausages, roast vine tomatoes, field mushrooms, baked beans, sourdough and spiced avocado.
Loaded Sweet Potato Fries
Where: Love Thy Neighbour
Well known as a great vegan haunt in Liverpool, the loaded sweet potato fries at Love Thy Neighbour are to die for.
With smoked tomato sauce, jalapeno sauce, pickles and vegan parmesan, you’ll be left wanting more of this delicious vegan dish.
There’s plenty more to choose from as well as sweet potato fries don’t take your fancy. Their falafel is incredible and their brunch option of coconut creamed garlic mushrooms on a bagel is out of this world.
Caprese Grilled Sandwich
Where: White Wolf Kitchen
Based in a yoga studio, White Wolf Kitchen is the perfect place to relax and indulge in some vegan treats in Liverpool.
All of their sandwiches look incredible, but the Caprese just sounds marvellous. Vegan cheese, basil and tomato on toasted fresh rye bread, a heavenly vegan dish that is sure to stand the test of time.
As a pure vegetarian and vegan restaurant, Sanskruti knows a thing or two about making their dishes tasty and specialised.

Where: The Old Hardware Shop
As one of the best-loved vegetarian cafes in Liverpool, it’s worth the trip out to Woolton to sample some of their tasty vegan dishes.
While their vegan dishes may be the stuff of legend, it’s their milkshakes that really steal the show. Made with soya or oat milk and deliciously thick, it’s not a milkshake to be missed.
The Vanilla Milkshake is our personal favourite – simple and effective.
Picnic Potato Curry and Temple Dahl
The cult Indian tapas restaurant is a feast for vegans. Traditional Indian dishes that satisfy your culinary needs while catering to vegans – what could be better!
Dive into their Picnic Potato Curry, tossed in fenugreek, tomato and Bengali Five Spice and pair with temple dahl, a dish made from red lentils, simmered in toasted cumin, coriander and lemon.
Chuleton de Coliflor
After moving to bigger and better premises less than a month ago, Lunya is pulling out all the stops for vegans with a dedicated menu of tapas, olives, snacks and paella.
With a new menu launching soon, they’ve been offering a sneak peek of what’s to come over on their Facebook.
We’ve got our eye on the Chuleton de Coliflor, chargrilled cauliflower steak, marinated in pimento and herbs, tahini and pomegranate molasses, served vegan without the yoghurt dressing.
The Entire Small Plate Menu
It’s hard to choose just one dish from Maray, especially as their small plate ethos is perfect for trying everything on the menu.
The restaurant even participates in #MeatFreeMondays, where their menu is exclusively vegetarian (unless you ask nicely for a bit of meat!).
Give their falafel a go, served with hummus and tabbouleh and thank us for the tip later.
Where: Kasbah café Bazaar and Restaurant
Bringing authentic Moroccan cuisine to the streets of Liverpool, Kasbah on Bold Street offer a few vegan options but their piece du resistance is their signature Tagine Berkani.
A traditional tagine dish made with chickpeas, cooked with olive oil, coriander, garlic, ginger and spinach for a taste explosion.
The restaurant itself is also extremely instagrammable, decked out in a traditional Moroccan style.
Where: Down The Hatch
Proving that being vegan isn’t just about eating salad and snacking on fruit, Down The Hatch is experts in vegan junk food and their menu is the perfect place to pig out.
The P.C.B is a brand new addition to their menu, piled high with a black bean patty, sautéed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, hand cut chips and smothered in peppercorn sauce.
We’re hungry just looking at it! Check out the rest of their menu and never settle for boring vegan food again.
Malted Fruit and Seed Bar

For all the sugar-loving vegans in Merseyside, World Peace Café brings a regularly changing sweet-treat special to Sefton. Their homemade flapjacks and vegan granola bars are drool-inducing.
Set in a Buddhist meditation centre overlooking Sefton Park, the café is perfect for a relaxing environment with great ethical dishes all year round.
All of the profits from the café go towards to International Temples Project to maintain and build Kadampa Buddhist temples around the world.
Onion Stacker Burger
BrewDog may be more well known for its delicious and wide range of beer (as well as their dog-friendly antics!), but they’re also a great place for vegan-friendly food.
Their Onion Stacker BBQ Burger is made from seitan, a wheat-based meat alternative, and layered with onion rings, salad, rich BBQ sauce and served with a mugful of crispy chips.
It’s definitely an unmissable vegan junk food dish.

Choose From Over 50 Milkshakes!
Shakeaway was one of the original innovators in the modern, quirky milkshake. After starting in 1999, the inventive store now has bars across the world bringing people over 180 flavours and millions of possible combinations.
It only makes sense that some of those combinations would be vegan-friendly, and they’ve got quite the selection.
Their Clayton Square store recommends over 50 of their flavours for vegans, all mixed with soya milk or soya ice cream for a delicious and hearty shake. We love all the fruity flavours, but take a chance with their Vimto chew bars mix for an extra sugary punch!
