vegan-buddha-bowl

V, VG, GF, DF, PL, FL (okay, that’s just one I made up) are spreading across Melbourne menus more than ever before. Times are changing and with it, the Melburnian diet. Meat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free is fast becoming the norm on the streets of Chapel Precinct and people are really starting to notice a difference. Whether their skin is looking better, energy levels are higher or their conscience is a little lighter, the results are there. If you’ve been throwing a potential change in diet fast into the ‘too hard’, ‘too inconvenient’ or ‘too expensive’ basket, let us help you change that around. If you want to of course. Chapel Street has an extensive list of options for the plant-eating folk and the food is absolutely delicious.

So, if you need just one more kick to get you through the plant based doors, here are twelve places to go vegan on Chapel Street.

Coffee lover with a conscience? This place is for you. The coffee is incredible and the delectable vegan snacks have been created to compliment the flavours in the coffee beans. The gluten free banana bread served with sweet potato jam & coffee maple syrup is a must-try! They even brew their own macadamia milk on site. Yum.

Austin cooks each order fresh so there may be a queue but we promise it’s worth the wait.
