Afew years ago, Glasgow has been crowned the most vegan-friendly city in the UK, and ever since the the plant-based food scene in the city has mushroomed even more. There is in fact so many vegan food options in Glasgow that your spoilt for choice – and choosing is not always easy! This is a comprehensive Glasgow Vegan Guide which features my favourite vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in Glasgow for every occasion! Behold, the only Glasgow vegan guide you’ll ever need!

Best for Breakfast: Soy Division

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!100% vegan breakfast & lunch cafe, 51 Kilmarnock Rd, Glasgow G41 3YN

Tucked away on Kilmarnock Road, Soy Division was only established in September 2016. And yet, it’s a staple on the vegan food circuit in the Southside! I love the place for its full vegan breakfast and homemade square sausage, that even meat-eaters approve of! Debbie, the owner of the cafe, is always up for good chat and is really passionate about spreading the veggie-based diet in Glasgow.

Best for Lunch: Picnic

100% vegan breakfast & lunch cafe, 103 Ingram St, Glasgow G1 1DX

It’s only been around since 2016, but Picnic is definitely my favourite when I find myself longing for a healthy lunch and a boost of vitamins in the Merchant City. Everything on the menu is 100% vegan, fresh and organic, and you get a full range of soups, sandwiches, mains and cakes. The raw pad thai bowl is amazing, but so are the sandwiches and the burger. There are also fresh cakes waiting for you in the deli counter!

Other brilliant options: The V&V Cafe, Stereo

Best for Coffee & Cake: Mala Carne

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Vegetarian breakfast & lunch cafe, 1036 Cathcart Rd, Glasgow G42 9XW

Confession time: I basically live at Mala Carne. The soy milk tastes amazing (it’s Bonsoy); the cakes are usually predominantly vegan, so you’re spoiled for choice; the smoked carrot is amazing (and I never even liked smoked salmon, which its supposed to resemble); and you just can’t copy their smoked tofu scramble at home. Mala Carne only opened in May 2017, but is already the best thing that happened to my neighbourhood, Mount Florida.

Other brilliant options: The V&V Cafe, Kind Crusts

Best for a Snack: Kurdish

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Kurdish takeaway shop, 12-14 Allison St, Glasgow G42 8NN

When I need a little pick me up on my way to town, or back, I love getting a falafel wrap at Kurdish Street Food. The falafel are some of the best in town, and the naan bread for the wrap is made fresh for every order. When choosing your fillings definitely get olives for a tangy twist and ask for the vegan falafel sauce, which has some sweet pineapple in it! Kurdish only has limited seats available, so I prefer taking the wrap away with me.

Other brilliant options: Hooked, Bar Burrito, Falafel to Go, Pret A Manger

Best for Food Markets: Big Feed

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Monthly street food market with ever-changing vendors, 249 Govan Road, Glasgow G51 1HJ

When it comes to quick, delicious street food, nothing is better than a food market! The Big Feed Street Food Market happens once a month and brings together the best street food vendors from across Scotland. There is always a variety of vegan options available, but my favourite are the burgers from Freddy & Hicks, who are a Big Feed regular! Check their social media for upcoming events & list of vendors.

Best for Casual Dinner: Ranjit’s Kitchen

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Vegetarian Panjabi restaurant, 607 Pollokshaws Rd, Glasgow G41 2QG

Vegan or not, everybody loves a curry! If I had to chose a restaurant in Glasgow to take friends to experience authentic Indian food and get a taste of amazing vegan dishes, I’d have to say it’s Ranjit’s Kitchen. It’s a small family-owned restaurant dishing up traditional and 100% vegetarian Panjabi dishes. I usually order a mix of dhal, sabji and pakora! You can’t reserve a table, so when it’s busy you might have to wait a little bit and share your table with other hungry customers.

Other brilliant options:  Mono, Hanoi Bike Shop, The Hug & Pint

Best for Scottish Food: Red Onion

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Scottish fine dining restaurant, 257 W Campbell St, Glasgow G2 4TT

Run by John Quigley, the former private chef of the likes of Bryan Adams or Guns’n’Roses, the Red Onion is a local favourite when it comes to  Scottish fine dining with plenty of options for vegans. There is a separate vegan set menu with a variety of starters and mains to choose from. I highly recommend leaving some space though, and taste your way through the vegan dessert menu! The atmosphere  at the Red Onion is a mix of casual and fine dining – not too fancy to feel out of place, but certainly an occasion to dress up a bit!

Best for Budget Eating: Bread Meats Bread

It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Burger joint, 104 St Vincent Street, Glasgow G2 5UB & 701 Great Western Road, Glasgow G12 8RA

If there is one thing Glasgow is not short of, it’s burger restaurants. But not every burger joint has as many vegan options as Bread Meats Bread – particularly the West End branch on Great Western Road. Vegan mains range from burgers and sandwiches to a variety of vegan fried “chickn” dishes, and cost between £7.50 and £8.50. My favourite is the Radical Reuben sandwich (£8.50), which tastes a lot like the real deal and works great with a side portion of vegan poutine (£3.50)!

Other brilliant options: Zaytun, Chillies West End

Best for Fine Dining: Leiper’s Attic

The only Glasgow Vegan Guide you'll ever need | Watch Me See | This Glasgow vegan guide features my personal favourite vegan restaurants in Glasgow for any occasion or meal, and all you need to know to find even more vegan options for your upcoming trip! It is indeed, the only Glasgow vegan guide you'll ever need!Fine dining restaurant at Cottiers, 93-95 Hyndland St, Glasgow G11 5PU

At first glance, Leiper’s Attic doesn’t sound like the most vegan-friendly restaurant in Glasgow, after all, they focus on steaks, game and sea food. However, the chef is very dedicated to create mouthwatering vegan options and I’ve had the pleasure to try them on two occasions. Fine dining at this level comes with a price tag, but if you’re looking for an omni- and vegan-friendly restaurant for a very special occasion, I can only recommend Leiper’s Attic at the Cottiers Theatre!

Other brilliant options:  Dakota Deluxe, Red Onion
