This is the first hummus and pita bar to arrive in Leeds, and it’s entirely vegan. Humpit serves up a tasty falafel with an assortment of toppings, such as tahini, salsa, pine nuts and various tasty veggies. For reasonably priced, fast and filling falafel, this is the place.

This stylish restaurant has plenty of vegan options on its menu. Think bagels, soups, smoothies and vibrant seasonal salads, served with a soy, almond or coconut latte. It’s also dog-friendly, so you can bring your animal best friend along, too.

The Grub & Grog Shop

Rather than marking vegan dishes with a “V”, this restaurant marks meat dishes with an “M”, meaning that plant-based dishes are front and centre on the menu! Enjoy comforting treats such as homemade crumpets, vegetable fritters or roasted squash, all washed down (as you may have guessed from the name) with a selection of specialty beers and ales.


This award-winning restaurant has been serving up vegetarian Indian home cooking since 1986. Vegan items are plentiful and clearly marked on the menu, including wickedly spicy curries, tempting sides and creamy desserts.  

Mrs Atha’s

This independent coffee shop is a great spot for a quality brew. There are two speciality vegan cakes on the menu, but make sure you request them on your visit, as they aren’t always on display.

This lovely health-food store is your one-stop shop for those hard-to-find vegan ingredients, organic local produce and ethical make-up and toiletries.

Little Tokyo

It’s easy to spot vegan items on the menu of this Japanese gem. Go for a steaming bowl of vegetable ramen or classic veggie yakisoba or splash out with a bento box filled with vegan chicken teriyaki or tofu steak.

2 Oxford Place

Ask for the vegan menu at this homely bistro, which specialises in gluten-free dining. The plant-based options such as tender aubergine curry or bangers and mash are simple but perfectly formed.

    Bit of a stretch when you’re putting places on this list that don’t even display their vegan options..

  • Karen commented on January 3, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    The Grove does not deliver all across the city; you missed off the following veggie places that extensively cater for vegans:
    Brown Greens
    4th Floor Cafe has a separate vegan menu
    Warm Chilli cafe

  • Karen commented on January 3, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    Also forgot the Peach and Pear cafe also has an extensive vegan menu

  • karen commented on January 3, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    Error it is the Cheerful Chilli Cafe not as stated previously
