Fancy some tasty vegan food and drink? We’ve got you covered. From NYC-inspired comfort food to sweet treats and specialty teas, work up your appetite with our list of vegan friendly restaurants and cafés in Soho.
Who said American comfort food has to be meat-based? Dirty Bones has proven it doesn’t have to be with their delightful Vegan Mac Daddy burger. The burger itself is made up of Moving Mountains® plant-based B12 Burger™ and then topped with a signature vegan mac & cashew ‘cheese’, smoky mushroom ‘short rib’ and espresso-spiked BBQ sauce and finalised with a soft bun. Sounds great right? No one should miss out on good old greasy comfort food.
Looking for somewhere to have a decent brew? Yumchaa on Berwick Street is a cosy Soho café offering up an extensive range of natural teas. Choose from an extensive selection of loose leaf teas, you can expect classics such as Jasmine, Matcha and Chai, to speciality flavours such as Orange Marmalade, Camden Coco and their legendary Blue Voodoo brew that turns violet with a little dash of lemon juice. Fancy something sweet with your tea? Yumchaa also serve up tasty vegan cakes including slices of banana loaf and sour cherry and hazelnut boost squares.
From Monday to Saturday, 8am until 6pm you can find the Dirty Dog stall over at Berwick Street Market, where you’ll be able to pick up a tasty vegan wiener hot dog.
