café / serves meat / moderate
This is a small Czech café chain with a couple of locations in Prague. This one offers soy milk for hot drinks and has a vegan apple strudel as well as sometimes a couple of vegan muffins. For something a bit more filling, there’s a wonderfully fresh hummus plate served with warm pita bread.
As a bonus, it’s also super digital nomad friendly, with fast wifi and several power outlets. If you do decide to work there, you certainly won’t be alone, as it’s also a popular place for this among students and locals.
breakfast, lunch & dinner / raw vegan / expensive
Hidden away from the main street, this cute raw vegan restaurant serves up some delicious, unique and creative food. The tasting menu is a good option (and enough to share between two) to try out the full range of their food.
We were particularly impressed by the Thai spice sticks, pea soup, raw pizzas and quiche. There’s also a good selection of interesting smoothies and a huge range of raw desserts to choose from. They also offer ‘cooking’ courses.
vegan / breakfast, lunch & dinner / moderate
With a nice range of dishes from different culinary traditions around the world, this bright, modern place serves up satisfying and healthy meals.
Service is a little confusing, as it's not clear if you order at the bar or are served at your seat, but there are several nice touches that make eating here a pleasant and comfortable experience nonetheless, like free tap water and open wifi.
vegan, vegetarian / breakfast & lunch / cheap
About as hipster as they come, this donut shop usually has at least two vegan donut flavours every day. Come early in the day to get the best choice and freshest donuts, ideally to take away as there's very limited seating here.
It makes for an ideal stopping off point while exploring the cool Žižkov area, and its proximity to the famous Žižkov Television Tower means there's more reason to come than just to see this feat of Brutalist architecture! The donuts themselves are pretty big and fluffy.
vegan / breakfast & lunch / moderate
Offering an all vegan buffet where you load your plate and pay by weight, this place, attached to a vegetarian healthfood store is centrally located but tucked away in a calm backyard, making it perfect for escaping the crowds of the Old Town to eat lunch. The food is generally central European in style, but fully veganised, with a few Mediterranean and Asian-style dishes to boot. Desserts and drinks are sold separately, and there's also free tap water.
