When visiting somewhere new, if you have special dietary restrictions, it can be helpful to already have a few places in mind where you will be able to eat. The last thing you want to do is traipse around lots of different cafes and restaurants, becoming more and more hungry. However, if you’re heading to Wales and want to know where the best vegan restaurants in Wales are, then you’re in luck as we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourites!

We have included some wonderful places to visit once it is safe to do so again, as well as a number that are offering contact-free collection or delivery options during the current COVID-19 crisis.

 

Glaslyn Ices Ice Cream Parlour & Pizzeria – Beddgelert

Glaslyn Ice Cream Parlour and Pizzeria, vegan restaurants in north wales

Glaslyn Ices’ award-winning ice cream parlour is often featured in Lonely Planet guides. It is also known for the incredible stone-baked pizzas served at the accompanying pizzeria.

The family-run business has been serving the people of Wales for 50 years. Their ingredients are fresh and usually locally sourced, including Snowdonia mushrooms from the Mushroom Garden.

Not many things are better than a freshly baked pizza. But if you do fancy something different, they also serve homemade paninis, coffees, and cakes.

They cater to vegan and dairy-free diets, and their pizzas can be made gluten-free, so everybody can enjoy eating together. Their vegan ice creams include a Vegan Coconut & Chocolate, the Snowdon Summit (which involves fresh Sorbet and crumbly apricot oat cake, topped with raspberry sauce, vegan whipped cream, and biscoff wafers), and the Aberglaslyn Pass (comprising of homemade vegan cookies sandwiched together with your choice of vegan ice cream or sorbet).

For vegan pizzas, options include their Arfon pizza (vegan meat balls, sweetcorn and red onion with Maggie’s spicy sauce and vegan Mozzarella), and their Ogwen pizza (made with Snowdonia mushrooms, herby roasted veg, San Marzano tomato sauce and vegan mozzarella with a sprinkle of Snowdonia shiitake dust).

During the COVID-19 crisis, they are offering a contact-free collection and delivery service locally, with payments being taken online.

Mother Nature, Cardiff, a True Vegan Restaurant in Wales

A true vegan restaurant in Wales, Mother Nature in Cardiff

This brand new venture in Cardiff, Mother Nature, serves innovative vegan food and drinks, and only opened its doors on the 5th of February. But it already had a loyal fanbase by the time it had to temporarily shut its doors due to the current pandemic. 

The café serves food that is 100% vegan, and the menu features everything from a vegan full English breakfast and pancake stacks to vegan Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with homemade double-dipped chips.

The café is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy veganised versions of their favourite dishes. It’s clear that the menu and café itself are a labour of love. If you’re planning on visiting Cardiff once it is safe to travel again, we highly recommend popping in!

 

The Greenery, Cardiff, Street Food Vegan Restaurant in Wales

The Greenery Kitchen in Cardiff

Another wonderful entirely plant-based eatery, also located in Cardiff, is the Greenery Kitchen. This vegan restaurant in Wales serves a menu of seasonal and locally inspired dishes, focusing on lunch. From soup to soul bowls and even vegan burgers, there’s something delicious for everyone.

They are currently available on Uber Eats if you are local to Cardiff. So you can still get your vegan fix if your fridge is looking a little bare. 

Their website also features a number of recipes, which is perfect if you’re finding yourself lacking inspiration and wanting to try something new!

 

We hope this has given you some inspiration for some wonderful vegan restaurants in Wales to visit in the future. We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. And we look forward to welcoming you all back to our leisure parks soon.
