Going vegan has been gaining popularity in the last few years. More and more people are deciding to cut out meat and dairy from their diet for ethical, environmental and health reasons. Always ahead of the latest food trends, Liverpool has opened more restaurants that cater to this exciting new market.
So with that in mind, we’ll be looking at the best restaurants and cafes for vegan food in Liverpool.
Meeting House Café
Located in the heart of Liverpool, Meeting House Café is known for its friendly staff and warm atmosphere. The café offers healthy and fresh English-inspired meals with a social cause. They have an extensive menu with plenty of choices, and all their food is either vegan or vegetarian. Culture Trip recommends people visit the café in the morning, as their breakfast menu has delicious options such as Croque Madame and a full English veggie breakfast. They have a wider selection for lunch including fresh sandwiches, homemade quiches, salads and baked potatoes.

A newly opened restaurant on Queens Drive, Indigo Greens has been helping Liverpool residents get into veganism through their meal delivery service. In addition to the restaurant, the space serves as a hub for anyone wanting to learn about vegan food and sustainable living.

They also hold an all-you-can-eat vegan buffet, one Friday of every month.

Mowgli Street Food
If you’re looking to eat out with non-vegans, check out this popular Indian restaurant. While there are meat options, they also have a separate vegan menu with a variety of choices. One of the recommended dishes on the list is the Holy Cow – spiced chickpea mixed with potato, spinach and spices served on a loaf. They also serve Bhel Puri, the well-loved Bombay street food, topped with peanuts and a sweet and sour dressing.

The Rise of Veganism in the UK
This list contains just some of the many vegan restaurants in the Liverpool area. This goes to show how popular the vegan movement has become in Liverpool and the UK as a whole. Even Greggs have got in on the act by offering a vegan sausage roll for only £1. Of course, this didn’t please everyone. One high profile person who disagreed with the move was Piers Morgan. In a humorous article, Sky News explained how a Euromillions winner would be able to buy 115 million rolls for the controversial TV host. Today, the jackpot is much higher, with Lottoland claiming it reaches around €190 million (£170 million). This means the current winner could buy an extra 55 million vegan rolls for Piers. While this is a slightly tongue in cheek look at veganism in the UK, the fact that the high street’s main chains like Greggs offer vegan options is a big step for the veganism. However, if you want to try some top vegan food to see if this particular lifestyle appeals to you, we suggest you visit one of the above restaurants.
