Vegan Food in Liverpool

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

Plant based eating is becoming ever-more popular across the North of England and beyond, and as you’d expect, Liverpool is at the forefront of this new sustainable dining and we’ve rounded up some of the very best vegan food in Liverpool.

Vegan restaurants are far from the underground happenings of yesteryear, and along with the glut of vegan-only diners, you’ll find plenty of standard meat-serving restaurants have jumped on board, along with more than a few major chains. Obviously, places dedicated to vegan (and vegetarian) cuisine are better placed to provide the most high-quality experience, but some of the Johnny-come-latelies deserve a mention too.

And this guide covers the lot. Our main criteria is the tastiest vegan food in Liverpool – it just so happens that this more often comes from the plucky independent venues. So, if you’re at all interested in the future of the planet – or even if you couldn’t care less and just want a healthy meat and dairy-free diet, you’ve come to right place.

Our top picks

Maray Albert Dock

Maray Albert Dock, Unit 4, Britannia Pavilion, Albert Dock, Liverpool, L3 4AD - Visit now

Maray introduced us to Disco Cauliflower and their separate vegan menu is music to our ears. Meat-free isn’t an afterthought here and you’ll find a wide range of mezze, small plates and desserts to choose from. Proof that ‘vegan-friendly’ and ‘fine-dining’ can go together.

The Egg Café

The Egg Café, Top Floor, 16-18 Newington, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 4ED - Visit now

The Egg Cafe describes itself as Liverpool’s foremost vegan (and vegetarian) restaurant and who are we to disagree? The food is reliably excellent, the atmosphere is cheerful without being imposing, and the space itself is fantastic – the loft space of an old Victorian warehouse. Very Liverpool.

Bundobust Liverpool

Bundobust Liverpool, 17-19 Bold Street (First Floor), Liverpool, L1 4DN - Visit now

Bundobust have brought their Indian street food and craft beer to Liverpool. It’s the all vegetarian (and mostly vegan) menu that will win over the biggest skeptics.

The Caledonia Liverpool

The Caledonia Liverpool, 22 Caledonia St, Liverpool, Merseyside, L7 7DX - Visit now

The Caledonia is one of Liverpool’s oldest and best-loved pubs, but behind that Georgian facade it also boasts a vegan-only kitchen.

‘Cali Vegan Kitchen’ is a meat-free paradise serving only vegan food and drink. It’s dog-friendly too, so grab your cauli and get down for a pint with some of the best vegan junk food in the city.

Just over a year old but already making waves in the Liverpool food scene, this all-vegan restaurant never disappoints. Head down to Duke Street, stat.

Food From Nowhere

Food From Nowhere, 96 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HY - Visit now

Probably the most inclusive space in Merseyside, Food From Nowhere is a volunteer-run café underneath the city’s leading radical bookshop, News From Nowhere. The food is entirely vegan, delicious and affordable enough for any budget. Best of all, it’s staffed by some of the friendliest people you’ll find anywhere in the UK.
