The Sly Fox

Found in Leith, The Sly Fox is a fantastic vegan cafe in Edinburgh. Chow down on French toast with a side of vegan bacon and maple syrup, or opt for the famous faux gras, which is a pâté made of mushrooms, lentils and walnuts.


The only totally vegan Italian restaurant in Edinburgh, Novapizza will have you drooling over its mouthwatering selection of grub. Dine on everything from spaghetti carbonara made with seitan to pizza capricciosa, followed by tiramisu or affogato - all of which is plant-based.


Civerinos is hands down one of the best vegan restaurants in Edinburgh's city centre. Alongside its usual cheesy pies, there's a delicious selection of plant-based slices, including the day trippin', which comes topped with a variety of mushrooms, truffle oil and parsley.
