Best Vegan Cafes in Melbourne

Updated 1 month ago


  • A tiny brick cubby serving up breakfast, lunch and the occasional dinner. The menu here is completely vegetarian and no eggs are used, too. If you think it's not brunch without eggs, then think again – after a couple of bites of whatever you've ordered, you won't even know they're gone.

  • Homey Japanese food and good coffee combine at this tiny corner cafe. Visit for tiny rolls stuffed with chicken sausage, teishoku (all-inclusive set meals, similar to bento boxes) and single-origin espresso drinks.

  • Flip the menu over to find every dish turned vegan.

  • The go-to for vegan and gluten-free treats.

  • This organic cafe serves an entirely vegan and raw menu. Chef-owner Yoko Inoue's cooking showcases the benefits of macrobiotic and organic raw food. Although most of the menu takes its cues from Japan, Inoue often just cooks what she feels, so dishes such as beetroot spaghetti and raw lasagne are common.

  • A cafe that wants to improve your brain chemistry with good food, sunshine and exercise.

  • Vegetarian for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Book a Table
  • Grab a tray and shuffle down the cafeteria-style counter for hot vegan brekkies, daily salads and desserts. Or hit the vegan deli and carvery for vegan cold cuts, sandwiches, pantry items and more.

  • Brother Bon aims to make vegan food accessible (and enjoyable) to all. Its pan-Asian brunch and dinner menus hit all the right notes with fragrant noodle soups, dumplings, stir-fries and gua bao. Also on the menu are Vietnamese-style cocktails, as well as Australian beers and wines.

  • This almost-all plant-based Turkish canteen pulls well beyond the vegan crowd with warming boreks, gozlemes and cabbage rolls. Its mother-and-daughter owners are behind all the recipes, and are often here serving them with a smile.
