Brisbane’s Best Vegan Restaurants
- All Ages
There’s never been a better time to be a vegetarian or vegan, and Brisbane is becoming a hotspot for fresh produce and creative meals that cater for all dietary and lifestyle options. When I became a vegan 25 years ago, it meant every time I ate out I was offered a plate of spaghetti in a garlic and tomato sauce, or a veggie stack. These days there is a whole lot more going on, and we’ve tracked down six of the best to try with your family.
Grown, West End
Grown is into plant-based dining, offering a seasonal menu that uses produce from FoodConnect, which sources local farmers no more than 400km from Brisbane. Offering specialty coffee and vegan wine and beer, any time is the right time for Grown. Head in for– or check out their website for dates for their degustation meals.
Where: 21 Buchanan Street, West End
When: Brunch Tuesday to Sunday 7:30am to 2:30pm, or dinner Tuesday to Saturday 5:30pm to 9pm

Dicki’s, New Farm
New to the scene but already making a splash is vegan café Dicki’s, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. Run by siblings Lexi, Justine, Choy and Diana Zulueta, they are paying tribute to their family’s first vegan, their dad Dicki. Food highlights include the breakfast burrito with spiced rice, crumbled tofu and black beans, and the buckwheat waffles with caramelised banana and vanilla bean ice-cream. Yum!
Where: 893 Brunswick Street, New Farm
When: 7 days 6am to 3pm (kitchen closes at 2pm)

You Came Again
If it feels like all the vegan options are for early birds, this is the answer for you. A vegan tapas bar that offers good times, health, approachability, wine and a customer-oriented experience. The beer, wine and cocktail list is incredible, and did we mention desserts? You had us at “chewy walnut brownie with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream”. The menu boasts heaps of plant-based goodness that caters to all sorts of dietary requirements, so if you struggle to find something to eat elsewhere, give this place a try.
Where: 245 Boundary Street, West End
When: Contact venue for hours

Veganyumm, Everton Park
Did someone say vegan bakery? If you’ve been missing cupcakes and cream buns because you’ve decided to go animal free, here is your chance to taste all those delicious flavours again without the eggs and dairy. Order delicious cinnayumms, doughnutyumms, waffleyumms, cookieyumms, and red velvet cupcakeyumms – and wash them down with a red velvet latte or turmeric latte made on your choice of plant-based milk. Or, you know, order a flat white.
Where: 473 South Pine Road, Everton Park
When: Hours vary depending on the season, check the website

Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen
Miss Bliss started when owner Jacqui, a nutritionist, started selling her bliss balls in other people’s cafes. But when that went off, Jacqui decided to open her own café, which has quickly become a West End favourite, serving breakfast, lunch and takeaway. Choose from Jacqui’s delicious bliss bowls, chia pots, salads, snack packs, smoothies and larger meals – or grab one of her famous bliss balls to taste what all of the fuss is about.
Where: 85 Vulture Street, West End
When: Week days 6:30am to 3:30pm; weekends 7am to 3pm – kitchen closes 1 hour prior

Loving Hut, Mt Gravatt
You could be forgiven for thinking that all vegans must be inner city hipsters but never fear, Loving Hut is flying the flag for the southern suburbs. This venue is 100% vegan and has been a favourite across the city for a long time (it’s well worth the drive for you northsiders). Try the vegan laksa with tofu puffs and vegetables, or the zucchini spaghetti, vegan lasagne and crispy chow mein. One thing is for sure: you won’t leave hungry or disappointed.
Where: 2/1420 Logan Rd, Mt Gravatt
When: Lunch and dinner, Monday to Saturday (see website for times)
