Going vegan is more popular than ever. Luckily, Adelaide’s cafe scene has been keeping up. Gone are the days of below-par vegan pastries and unconvincing meat substitutes. These days, you don’t have to compromise on flavour if your diet is plant-based, especially when you’re out to brunch.

There’s no shortage of places that can cater for you – whether you’re after a hearty breakfast or a sweet treat and coffee to-go. Not all of these spots are strictly vegan, but they all have notable vegan options.
