The Best Vegan Restaurants in Brisbane

Updated 3 days ago


These days, chefs are giving vegetables more love than ever. Just look at the proliferation of roasted cauliflower on menus across Australia and the world.

And as the murky ethics of the industrial food chain become more apparent, plant-based substitutes like tofu, coconut oil and aquafaba are becoming more popular. Brisbane doesn’t have a huge number of 100 per cent vegan restaurants. But if you’re okay with the people around you eating animal products, many places can cater for you.

  • Fill your plate, cafeteria-style, with any combo of up to 35 Mediterranean-style dishes (many of them vegan) including juicy stuffed tomatoes, spanakopita and orzo pasta. Dine in under a sea of yellow umbrellas, or take it away to enjoy at home.

  • A fast-paced joint dealing out punchy Indonesian and Southeast Asian flavours.

  • From the man who brought you edible insects and Kentucky Fried Duck.

  • Simple food that balances flair and practicality.

  • A gorgeous restaurant and bar at the centre of Brisbane's Middle Eastern moment.

  • A permanent home for some of the city's best vegan tacos, with slick wines, cocktails and Mexican beer to match.

  • A tiny, whimsical bar inspired by Peter Pan.

  • This cafe and grocer has almost everything a vegan could ever want or need, from tofurkey to coconut yoghurt.

  • Healthy takeaway for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • What started as a roaming pizzeria in the back of a Volkswagen Kombi is now a breezy Italian restaurant in the suburbs. Step inside for traditional, woodfired Neapolitan pies, classic pastas and a barrel-aged Negroni that routinely sells out.

  • Arcade games and craft beer? Yes please.

  • Plant-based dishes, veggies from the grill, and an outdoor terrace at this rebooted Brisbane favourite.
