Vegan restaurants in Stockholm
Updated 24 Oct 2019
More and more people are becoming vegans and the vegan trend is growing in kitchens at home as well as out at restaurants. Pure vegan restaurants focusing on healthy plant-based food are opening all the time, while more and more "ordinary" restaurants are choosing to include not just vegetarian options but also vegan ones on their menus. We've rounded up the best vegan restaurants in Stockholm.
Vegan fast food
Chefs here take their inspiration from all the cuisines of the world, but use only vegan ingredients. The place to go if you want to get your food delivered quickly, whether you're eating in or taking away. Tacos, buns, bowls and ssäm are just a few of the dishes you can order from their menu.
Popular healthfood café
Mahalo opened their first healthfood café on Hornsgatan and it wasn't long before Stockholmers were queuing up to order one of their famous bowls. They now have a second branch on Odengatan and they serve vegan salads, burgers, smoothie bowls, wraps and rawfood. It's often very busy around breakfast and lunch time and some people stay all day.
