Vegan Restaurants in Brussels: The Best Options
With a population of just over 1 million, and as the cultural capital of Belgium, Brussels is one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the country. With a strong and growing vegan community, it’s easy to find a wide variety of vegan food in Brussels. However, there is definitely a focus on healthy and raw options at the moment. Here are some of the best vegan restaurants in Brussels. MEININGER hotels are now established in Brussels and offer great accommodation options near public transport links such as Brussels Midi station. Find your hotel in the center of Brussels!
Mostly a health food store stocking various specialised ingredients. Otherwise hard to find items, this all-vegan business also makes their own vegan pastries and cakes which are available to take away. It’s definitely worth stopping by to pick up a piece (or two) of their beautiful creations. This includes some wonderfully inventive and tasty raw vegan cakes made with all organic ingredients.
Les 4 Jeudis
Open only for lunch, this friendly and welcoming place near the EU Headquarters serves a daily changing menu that is something quite special. Everything is healthy and features a lot of green, but inventiveness and taste are definitely not sacrificed in the process. They also have some delicious homemade cakes. The best vegan restaurants in Brussels definitely include this one.
The best place in Brussels to come for mostly raw and gluten free vegan food. This beautifully designed restaurant has a great selection of cold pressed juices, raw wraps, gorgeous salads and homemade cakes. There’s also an impressive buffet which is self service and you pay by weight. Clearly the chefs here know what they’re doing as all the food is delicious.
Focusing on macrobiotic and organic food, this vegetarian health food shop also serves lunch with a daily changing menu. Almost everything is vegan, except the desserts (which mostly contain egg). It is served with a smile in a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. A great option for a healthy and filling lunch if you’re sick of eating chips!
The Judgy Vegan
Set in a wonderfully bright space, this all vegan restaurant serves food from a menu during the week. However, it is most worth coming to at weekends for their all-you-can-eat brunch buffet with a big range of sweet and savoury dishes to enjoy. Staff are friendly and attentive, and quickly replace any empty plates from the buffet with fresh ones. It gets busy so making a reservation for brunch is essential.
Perfect for an afternoon coffee, this delightfully hipster space full of young, beautiful people also offers some vegan cakes to accompany their excellent single origin coffee which they’ll happily prepare for you with soy or oat milk. They also serve some vegan breakfast and lunch dishes, but just be sure to check what is and isn’t vegan before ordering as it may not be clear from the menu.
