When it comes to vegan and vegetarian restaurants, Gothenburg goes well beyond the normal fare. See our pick of the best eateries, serving up international flavours as well as unusual takes on traditional Swedish dishes.
Serving only vegan food, cooked from scratch, Blackbird offers both Swedish and more far-flung flavours, using ingredients such as tofu and tempeh. You can also try their vegan sandwiches and pastries, as well as some very interesting mixed drinks.
Located in the old Haga neighbourhood, En Deli Haga serves vegetarian food with a hint of the Mediterranean – as well as fantastic coffee, desserts and an excellent breakfast. The menu is egg-free and loaded with gluten and dairy-free options.
The interior takes its inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, while the food is healthy with plenty of hints of Asia. A wide variety of international teas are on offer, and the home-baked flavours, particularly the vegetarian dumping, are stunning.
This bar and restaurant is located in the foyer of Folkteatern (The People’s Theatre). While it’s a great place to grab a bite before seeing a show it’s worth visiting just to try the excellent food, which takes inspiration from around Europe. There are also natural wines and organic beverages.
Self-described as an ”Ecological Raw Food-Joy Restaurant”, Open New Doors features vegan raw food dishes from seasonal ingredients. The location is stunning and the desserts in particular are out of this world.
One of Gothenburg’s most popular vegetarian restaurants, Hagabion Café offers everything from sandwiches to adventurous daily specials and soups. The café and Bar Kino both offer the same menu, although at the bar it’s more about lively conversation and hanging with the arty people who gather here.
This award-winning restaurant serves up South Indian vegetarian food that has given it a reputation as one of the best eateries in the city, even among carnivores. Great service and a warm atmosphere lift the experience even further.
The sister restaurant of Gothenburg’s popular Kafé Marmelad (located just across the street), Syster Marmelad takes things up a notch, serving up magical vegetarian creations alongside organic wine. Grab a seat on the fabulous outdoor terrace during the warmer months.
