The Kind Kitchen

First on our list is an amazing vegan restaurant called The Kind Kitchen

The Kind Kitchen was founded by vegan advocate and chef Jason McNamara. Jay travelled to Austin Texas in 2013 where he gained his skills in vegan culinary arts at The Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts under the tutelage of Chef Inge Bothma.

They have two branches in the Cape Town area- one in Woodstock and the other one is in Constantia.

Their menu is “chokka block” full of wonderful vegan goodies and their portion sizes are very nice, as well as their pricing.

I have only ever been to the Woodstock branch (I have been 10+ times) and every single time I go I am more amazed by the quality of their food.

Ed Sheeran and Passenger visited them for dinner while they were touring in Cape Town… So their food is top quality.

THE SUNSHINE FOOD CO

This lovely little vegan restaurant was originally a small mobile food stall, run by Madzivadoondo. After running the stall for some time, this urban microgreens gardener noticed that the demand for his products was growing quickly which resulted in him moving into where the restaurant is based now on Main Road, Cape Town.

He grows all his own microgreens and sprouts at his small house in Pinelands. He believes that conventional farming uses far too many fertilisers and insecticides so he decided that the safest and healthiest way was to just go ahead and grow his own.

Expect to get some really healthy, 100% organic food from this awesome little cafe-style restaurant.

Pure Elixir Cafe

We only have two spots left on our list of the best vegan restaurants in Cape Town. The name of our next top vegan spot is Pure Elixir Cafe.

You can expect some top-notch service here and their food is also fantabulously yummy! I have only visited this little shop twice and both times I had their Chickpea Curry Rotti which is ABSOLUTELY awesome. My partner had one of their salads which also looked really good.

The pricing of their menu is highly competitive and their portions are a very nice size.

I was very impressed with the efficient friendly service of the staff who will make sure you enjoy your time with them.

Green And Vegan

 

 Last on our list for this post is a fantastic little vegan restaurant which is only open 1 day a week- on Saturdays.

Bookings can be made using Quicket at this link.  

It is definitely worth trying it one day. During season it is advisable to book at least 3 weeks in advance otherwise you will probably not be able to get a booking.

The menu is a little bit pricey but it is definitely worth it. They normally run a set menu for the once a week open day and their vegan goodies are super tasty!

OPERATING HOURS:
