Belfast isn’t quite as vegan-friendly as Dublin but it is getting there! Upon searching ‘Vegan restaurants Belfast,’ I found two mouth-watering, hunger-inducing options that I immediately put on my must-eat list. There are also a few vegetarian restaurants and many veg-friendly places within the city as well according to HappyCow. Unfortunately, I only had time to make it to the all-vegan restaurants on my one day in Belfast.
The Honest Vegan
**Update as of July 2019 – permanently closed**
On our way into the city centre, we stopped at The Honest Vegan on the outskirts of the city. The Honest Vegan is located on Lisburn Road and while we didn’t stay in the area long, it appeared to be a very hip area of town. You’ll find shops, boutiques, wine bars and coffee houses so it only makes sense that you find an all-vegan restaurant here!
The exterior of the restaurant is adorable and had me anticipating the food inside even more.
As you can see from their menu below, they have several breakfast and lunch/dinner options as well as baked goods, smoothies, coffee, and tea. They also have daily specials you can check out during your visit. After much deliberating, I decided to go with the hearty chili and Lauren got the noodle salad. Then I ordered the baked cauliflower bites because I just really love cauliflower bites. The soup was definitely hearty and even though I came in after unexpectedly fasting the first half of the day, I left very full. I used to hate chili before going vegan because I didn’t like beans but I now love beans and this chili was fantastic and hit the spot. The cashew sour cream was so delicious too. I swear cashew anything is the best dairy replacement. Lauren also gave the noodle salad a big seal of approval.
While I desperately wanted to try one of their desserts, the chili filled me up so well and we weren’t going to be at our hotel for a quite a while so I opted out of it. They had a ton of different choices such as these cupcakes, cheesecake, other dessert bars and much more. They also will do special orders!

Other Vegan Options
While these are the only two spots that I tried, I figured I’d give you a few more options in case you’re in town longer. I can’t vouch for any of these but they have great reviews on HappyCow.
- Umi Falafel (vegetarian)
- Home Restaurant (veg-friendly; separate menu)
- Giro’s Cafe (all vegan but only Wednesdays 7-9pm; volunteer ran; pay what you wish; BYOB)
- Archana (veg-friendly; extensive vegan menu)
