There's never been a better or easier time to be a vegan. Plant-based food is taking up an ever-increasing amount of space on the menus of Stockholm's cafés and restaurants - offering tasty and healthy choices for everyone, whether you're a vegan, carnivore or omnivore. The city has several cafés that focus on green options; and many that are completely vegan. We've rounded up Stockholm's best vegan cafés in this guide.

This healthfood café opened in 2015 and there are branches in both Södermalm and Vasastan.
