2. Vegano

If you’re on the hunt for a cool vegan café to go for a nice bite to eat after being at uni or out and about in the city centre, Vegano is a top choice of ours.

Located on Blandford Square, this café is 100% plant-based and offers a huuuge range of Italian inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner inside their minimalist café.

Our go-to order is the White Truffle Pizza with seasonal mushrooms, garlic, basil and smoked mozzarella.

It’s gotta be accompanied with a side of sweet chilli fries, topped with hoisin, salsa and peanuts!

If you’re just after somewhere to go for a coffee and a cake, they offer gorgeous treats like their house made Vegan Tiramisu – mmm.

The stunning food, upbeat music, great atmosphere and the convenient location makes this place well worth a visit, no matter if you’re vegan or not.

3. Karma Kitchen

We don’t know about you, but we’re always in the mood for a tasty curry.

When it comes to delicious plant-based curries, you won’t find better than at Karma Kitchen (at least in Newcastle anyway).

Serving up North Indian food, you’ll find this family-run restaurant inside Newcastle’s Bigg Market.

We urge you to try their Chilli Paneer with tangy Indo Chinese sauce, stir fried peppers and onions, garnished with a sprinkle of fresh coriander.

Not hitting the spot? Try their South Indian Kattal Curry containing jackfruit in a spicy South Indian style curry sauce with onions and peppers.

They even offer loads of gluten free options too.

Our favourite is their Vibrant Green with apples, celery, cucumber, ginger, lime, pineapple, spirulina and spinach.

Don’t worry, they also offer some delicious food like their plant-based open burrito with rice, lentils, mushrooms, potatoes, peppers, beansprout, spinach and Home-made chickpea Sauce.

Where can you find some of the best vegan pub grub? Well, it’s gotta be at The Shipp Inn.

You can choose from roast dinners to burgers to kebabs to mac n cheese to fish n chips.

Yep, that’s right, vegan fish and chips – wow!

If we’re being honest, all their dishes are truly mouth-watering even if you’re a meat eater, they’re full of flavour, super filling and great value for money.

However, the top place for comfort food must be the dirty donna kebab on a fresh baked flatbread with crisp salad, sweet pickled red cabbage, garlic mayo, hot chilli sauce and pickled chilli.
