Top vegan cafes in Mumbai that you must visit for healthy and delicious food

Conscious consumption of food has led to a revolution of sorts, making vegan or plant-based food ‘cool’. Unlike the popular notion, going vegan is, indeed, becoming more delicious by the day. Cafes and restaurants are whipping up a vegan storm with innovative dishes. 

“Proven to help with multiple nutritional benefits, vegan and plant-based food is a great way to switch to a healthier lifestyle for, both, your body and the environment. The easiest way to get started is by making small changes in your everyday diet by replacing meat and dairy twice a week and taking it from there,” suggests Mohit Bulchandani, the founder of Seeds of Life, a vegan cafe based in Bandra and Juhu.

So if you are a vegan or not, we bring some of the must-try places for you to savour plant-based food. 

Birdsong Cafe

Tucked in one of the quaint lanes in Bandra, this cafe serves a mix of  Continental, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Mexican and Indian cuisines, with a focus on all things organic and healthy. Plus, they have an array of breakfast options too. Birdsong Organic Sweet Breakfast and for those on a Keto diet, there’s Birdsong Organic Keto Breakfast. Their Caramelized Onion Risotto, a rich risotto with the sweetness of caramelised onions, is a vegan favourite. And for a satiating wrap up, we highly recommend the vegan chocolate cake. 

Seeds of Life

Here’s your moment to explore a world of healthy and refreshing meals. Their must-try is Mushroom Bowl, Lebanese Bowl and Cacao Smoothie Bowl. Right from pizzas, salad bowls to rejuvenating coolers and many more, they pair up the most interesting ingredients that make for great comfort food. 

Farmers Cafe

Known for all things healthy, Farmers’ Cafe predominantly serves a vegetarian menu, with all raw materials sourced from local farmers. However, their specialty is the option to veganise most dishes from the menu. For instance, you can order vegan cheese for pizza and plant milk for drinks. Their rainbow pizza, beetroot hummus, falafel, carrot cake, and chocolate almond pudding are some of all-time vegan favourites.

Touted for their farm to fork delivery and culinary academy, the brand takes a wholesome approach when it comes to vegan food. For example, the dairy-free raw cacao ice-cream, made with cashew and wild honey is a hit amongst vegans for its texture and flavour infused. Their Almond Butter Cookies are another popular take from their menu, made with ingredients such as rolled oats, vegan choco chips, and almond butter, making these cookies vegan and gluten-free too. For more gluten-free options, they have a range of bread loaves baked using chickpea and rice flour.
