Vegan Eats: Eating Around London in a Day

6min read

Eat around London in a day vegan style. Sound good? We thought so. From fresh smoothies and vegan doughnuts to plant-based burgers and pizzas, this guide has die-hard, London locals, as well as foodie visitors, covered. 

Picture the scene. It's Saturday, and it's been a LONG week. You want a day full of fun, food and sunshine. While we can’t control the last one, we can share some great London plant-based as well as vegan...ish restaurants the city has to offer. You might just find your new favourite spot.

Breakfast: Farm Girl

Where: 1 Carnaby St, Soho, London, W1F 9QG

Closest station: Oxford Circus

We start our day the ‘Aussie way’ at Farm Girl. This is a cafe and coffee shop with a couple of branches dotted around London that provides ‘fresh, nutritious and honest food’ that has been raved about by wellness gurus the past couple of years. The Soho branch sits above Sweaty Betty on Carnaby Street – if you were really feeling that wellness hit, you could even stop off at a fitness class beforehand.

Perhaps a refreshing Açai Bowl or comforting Banana Toast might take your fancy? We recommend ordering one of their infamous Rose Latte’s – for the Insta if not for the taste. Whatever you choose, a breakfast at Farm Girl will leave you feeling like you could do an hour-long session of hot yoga followed by a half marathon around Hyde Park. It must be the smoothie bowls…

Mid-morning pick-me-up: Press 

Where: Selfridges, 400 Oxford St, London, W1A 1AB

Closest station: Bond Street

With 100% cold-pressed plant-based juices and smoothies, Press is a great option for that mid-morning pick-me-up. All of their fruit and veg (including the odd ones!) come from G.A.P Global certified farms so you can be sure that your juice hit is ethically and consciously sourced.

Lunch: Neat Burger

Where: 4 Princes St, Mayfair, London, W1B 2LE 

Closest station: Oxford Circus

Once you’ve had a wander around Soho and built up an appetite for lunch, make a stop at Neat Burger. Partner and brand ambassador of this relatively new restaurant, F1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton, has been vegan for a couple of years. He discusses his lifestyle choice in Netflix’s The Game Changers - a documentary we loved watching which you can check out here.

Neat Burger amalgamates typical American diner with millennial pink neon signs and works with Beyond Meat to dream up the completely plant-based menu. From the Cheeseburger, to the Chick’n Burger, to the Neat Dog, there is an alternative to any type of classic diner dish and shake. One of our favourites is the ‘My Date Isn’t Hungry’ aka add any side to your order so your date doesn’t steal your chips (the worst thing ever).

They also work with the Eden Project so for every product sold they plant a tree - something we at allplants can totally get on board with (you can check out our referral scheme here).

Afternoon coffee and doughnuts: Crosstown Doughnuts

Where: 157 Brick Ln, Shoreditch, London, E1 6SB

Closest station: Liverpool Street + Shoreditch High Street

For the afternoon and evening, where else to head but Shoreditch? Crosstown Doughnuts are made from sourdough and they offer a great range of vegan options (which FYI, you can get delivered to your door. Dangerous knowledge, we know). The Tongan Vanilla Bean Glaze being a failsafe choice or the Yuzu and Passionfruit if you’re feeling that bit more daring.

Dinner: Pizza East

Where: 56 Shoreditch High St, Hackney, London, E1 6JJ

Closest station: Liverpool Street + Shoreditch High Street

Part of the Soho House group and crowned on the corner of Bethnal Green Road and Shoreditch High Street is Pizza East. Unassuming from the outside, you’ll be pleasantly surprised once you enter. With long wooden tables and rustic walls, people chatter over cocktails and pizzas with their faces lit only by candles and overhead lamps. 

Their daily menu boasts a selection of plant-based pizzas, including the traditional Italian potato pizza with truffle, watercress and garlic. Honestly, pizza, potato and truffle? We’re there. They also do funky cocktails with the Soho Mule and Eastern Standard being both vegan and, well, rather strong (can’t fault the East London theme they’ve adopted here either). A delightful spot to end the day and this guide.

A day full of açai bowls, plant-based burgers, cocktails and pizza, you can now stumble home and into bed with a definite food baby. Let us know on Insta if you visit any of these spots and tell us what you thought!
