Veggie Food Guide Budapest

Is Budapest vegan and vegetarian friendly?

Set between the Danube River and magnificent buildings, the enchanting Hungarian capital offers alternative flair and first-class dining hotspots. And it’s not just fans of the rather substantial Hungarian cuisine who are spoil for choice here, but vegetarians and vegans, too. Here are our recommendations for the most delicious vegetarian restaurants in Budapest:

#1 Paradise for vegans: Napfényes Étterem 

The Napfényes Étterem restaurant in Rózsa utca 39 offers typical Hungarian specialties reworked for vegans, daily changing menus, a lavish salad bar and sinful desserts. The delicious, colorful platters for two people are highly recommended. 

#2 Dining in the urban jungle: Stika 

Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner that you’re after – Stika hits all the right notes. How about a couple of fluffy pancakes? Perhaps an aubergine baguette or a portion of tasty shakshuka? Bon appetit!

#4 Alternative scene in ruin bars and street food markets 

The heart of the city can be felt most late at night. In Budapest, the legendary ruin bars are the ideal place to round off the evening. The most well-known ruin bar is undisputed Szimpla Kert. In addition to a large selection of drinks, you can also enjoy vegetarian burgers and snacks on the upper floor. 
Also be sure not to miss the street food markets, which can be found in abundance tucked away in courtyards throughout the Pest district.

#5 Vegan and delicious: Ice cream at Levendula 

It’s a good idea to leave some room after lunch or dinner. That’s because the Levendula Ice Cream Shop boasts supreme flavour sensations with names like Sicilian pistachio or raspberry and mint. The braver ones amongst you might try ginger or tahini and camembert. Our favourite variety in Levendula, what else could it be: Lavender.
