With 7% of Brits having gone vegan and the plant-based diet constantly on the rise, many of Birmingham’s own independent and chain restaurants are now offering fantastic vegan options and here are some of our favourites.
Based in City Arcade and proudly ‘100% plant based’, Fressh offers a variety of meal options from chickpea ‘tuna’ salads to guac burgers and fries. Also available for Click and Collect, eating vegan has never been more convenient. The Fressh team are also passionate about reducing plastic consumption, offering paper straws with their famous cooling lemonade.
Offering good value tickets to recent films as well as a fantastic vegan burrito option, the Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen is a firm favourite. The food is just as good value as the cinema tickets, at £8 for a large burrito with a side of fries. Located in Digbeth, a delicious vegan burrito is a mere ten minute walk from the Bullring!
Located in Link Street in Grand Central, Not Dogs offers an alternative to the typical vegan options usually available, instead filling the gap in the market for vegan fast food. With a selection of tasty hot dogs with a wide variety of toppings, as well as ‘nice shakes’, burgers, and ‘chicken’ nuggets, Not Dogs will make sure you don’t miss your fast food fix.
The Stable specialises in sourdough base pizza and cider. The Stable not only offers a number of specifically vegan pizzas, but also offers a vegan garlic bread and brownie. Make sure to take advantage of ‘Tuck In Tuesday’, when you can have your choice of vegan pizza, a half pint of cider, and side salad all for £10!

With locations in both the Jewellery Quarter and the city centre, The 3 Threes Coffee Lounge provides coffees, milkshakes, cakes, hot dogs, and even vegan s’mores (and if that’s not enough to prove a visit is a necessity, we don’t know what is).
Located between the Bullring and Moor Street Station, The Warehouse Cafe at 54-57 Allison Street has been providing Birmingham with vegetarian food for over thirty years. Offering a Vegan Sunday Roast with the option of a dessert called the “Digbeth Mess”, it’s no wonder the cafe is so loved. It can get quite busy, so make sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment!
Just opposite the Mailbox you’ll find Natural Healthy Foods, Birmingham’s first all-vegan eatery. Operating a weigh before you pay system, guests can choose from a variety of dishes such as thai salad, tofu ‘fish’ and chips, curry, dahl, and falafel.
Harvey Nichols provide a vegan afternoon tea upon request, consisting of scones with jam and coconut cream, sandwiches, macaroons, and Eton Mess. Remember to call ahead to discuss dietary requirements prior to visiting!
In the Great Western Arcade lies Birmingham’s answer to the best vegetarian and vegan cocktails. With cocktails 2 for £10 every day until 7pm, and a pre-theatre menu with a delicious vegan option, what’s not to love?
