Where to Find Bostin’ Vegan Food in Birmingham
For the latest instalment in our series of vegan city guides, we head to the West Midlands to discover where compassionate Brummies go to find delicious meat-free food.
These are our top vegan picks in Britain’s second city:
The Warehouse Café
Fresh, local and seasonal ingredients take centre stage at this longstanding eco-veggie restaurant located right in the city centre. There are many tempting vegan options available and clearly labelled – the dessert menu even includes vegan trifle! For groceries, check out the 100% Vegan shop in the same building.
Cooking up authentic South Indian vegetarian food, Deepalis is an obvious stopping point for vegans exploring the famous Balti Triangle, whether you’re in search of a fragrant curry or classics such as masala dosa and idli sambhar.
Veg Out Café & Restaurant
Light, healthy and organic – the food at this friendly King’s Heath vegetarian café ticks all the boxes.
Monday is vegan night at this Malaysian/Singaporean restaurant, with a full menu of unusual animal-free dishes, including tofu gado gado, rambutan and jackfruit red curry and bright green pandan crepes. If you can’t make it on Monday, the regular menu also caters to compassionate eaters.
This popular restaurant serves laid-back South American food – just ask for the vegan menu, and you’ll be good to go! For added authenticity, wash down your meal with a cheeky margarita (or three).
A place to splash out, this is the kind of restaurant where the menu is full of items you may struggle to pronounce – but don’t let that put you off, since everything is seasonal, British and meat-free, with vegan options clearly labelled.
Mr Singh’s All Vegetarian Pizza

Boston Tea Party
Head here for superior coffee and a slap-up vegan breakfast.
The British Oak, Stirchley
How many traditional boozers have a whole vegan section on the menu? Tuck into pub favourites such as pie and chips or vegetable chilli at this historic pub.
Cherry Reds Cafe-Bar
Hearty vegan breakfasts and staples such as falafel burgers and vegan cakes are the name of the game at this down-to-earth café, with two branches in Kings Heath and City Centre.
This vegan grocery store in Digbeth is a great place to stock up on faux-meats, sweet treats, cruelty-free beauty products and much more. Their vegan goody bags also make great gifts.
