We asked Mitch from Plantbased Bristol to round up some of Bristol's best vegan food, from burgers to sweet treats.

You can discover more vegan places to eat in our guide to Bristol's Best Vegan Restaurants, or Budget Vegan Dining in Bristol.

Swoon

What can I say about these heroes? So many dairy free options here, not limited to sorbetto. They are masters of their craft and an absolute must visit.

Three Brothers Burgers

The entire menu aboard this burger boat has been recreated for vegans, and is the most extensive vegan burger menu in Bristol for my money. It’s a burger emporium, and it’s a bloody boat as well!

Quay Street Diner

Here you’ll find a simple but classic Cali burger with a Moving Mountains pattie. Not the cheapest burger at £11.50, but a great spot for dinner with your friends.

Eat a Pitta

Eat a Pitta is a premier lunch spot, but I’m sure you all know that by now. It may be the best £6 you’ll ever spend on lunch.

Pizzarova

My favourite pizza joint in Bristol. Vegan pizzas, vegan dips, local, fresh ingredients. Nothing beats the vibe of their Park Street gaff.

Koocha Mezze

Ever since Koocha opened on a corner of Zetland Road in mid-2018, it’s been one of my favourite spots to eat. The team always have a smile on their faces and are fun, lovely people whilst the delicious Persian food is as vibrant and colourful in taste as it is in appearance. Fresh, oozing aromatic flavours and entirely plant-based. The mezze is 4 for £14, and all mains are priced between £6.95 - £7.95. I’m genuinely yet to meet anyone that doesn’t like Koocha.

Shake Wrap & Roll

In my humble opinion, Shake Wrap & Roll on Cheltenham Road have the best vegan wraps in the whole city. My go-to is a large onion bhaji and aloo gobi (£6.50), hummus base with hot sauce, chutney and all the salads. The ingredients behind the counter are fresh, and sourced from Gloucester Road, whilst all the sauces are freshly made in-house.

Root

Root is “a small plate restaurant that gives vegetables star billing”, and whilst you can find some seafood, there’s no currently no meat on the menu and hasn’t been for months. This is vegetarian fine dining where half the dishes are vegan and most others can be made vegan. There’s no two ways about it, Root is elite. Head chef Rob Howell was formerly the head chef of the Michelin-starred Pony and Trap, and has lead Root to a Bib Gourmand and an AA Rosette.

Suncraft

This ethical, vegan and gluten-free restaurant always have several mouth watering desserts on the menu.

Seven Lucky Gods

If you like Japanese food then Seven Lucky Gods have got you covered! Housed in a combination of six containers in Wapping Wharf, it’s the largest shipping container restaurant in Bristol and it’s the coolest looking place I’ve eaten recently. They have a good range of vegan sharing plates and they're doing 50% off and vegan and veggie food every day in Janaury, then 50% off on Mondays thereafter.

Box-E

This Bib-Gourmand and 2 AA Rosette restaurant always have a vegan delice on the menu and an array of seasonal, local ingredients to create incredible vegan meals. Booking essential.

Zara's Chocolates

The finest chocolatier in Bristol in my opinion. Everything is handcrafted in her small BS3 shop, so stop by for vegan treats and vegan hot chocolate.

Mrs Potts Chocolate House

A Chocoholics dream of cakes, cookie sandwiches and hot chocolates. Grab yourself a vegan treat and watch the world go by.

The Burger Joint

Hummusapiens

My favourite market stall find of 2019 was Hummusapiens and with mega hummus bowls topped with seitan, like the one pictured, I’m sure you can see why I was drawn to it.

Asado

When it comes to burgers in Bristol, this place is premium and their vegan burgers are bangin’. Pictured is the Southern fried seitan burger, with pineapple & habanero ketchup, vegan mayo and slaw.

Hennessey's Coffee Shop

My favourite coffee shop in Bristol, and I don’t even like coffee. There’s always vegan cakes on the counter and its the coolest spot around.

Oowee Vegan

Not much needs to be said about these folk, they brought seitan to the masses and should be credited with starting the vegan burger movement in Bristol. The humble “Good Burger” is still my go-to Oowee burger.

Dangun

Let me tell you, if you want fresh, tasty vegan food then you need to pay Dangun a visit. Look at the colours in this photo!

The Malago

The Malago's roast menu is an impressive read and at the bottom you’ll find the vegan option, a ‘Butternut squash & chestnut mushroom wellington’ (£15) served with roast potatoes, vegan creamed leeks, roasted parsnips & carrots, red cabbage, greens and gravy.

The North Street Standard

The North Street Standard do a seitan roast dinner. They serve from midday until they sell out, but I’ve been in at 5pm a few times and they still had everything on the menu, so it’s great for you last minute roast fans.
