Ultimate Vegan Guide to Covent Garden

If ever you decide to visit London, I cannot recommend Covent Garden enough. It is a little slice of paradise for food-lovers, teeming with all kinds of quaint and contemporary eating establishments that are sure to impress new and seasoned vegans alike. 

I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Hotels.com to explore the area and I couldn't have been more thrilled. Thanks to them, you can enjoy an unforgettable stay at one of the best Covent Garden hotels, and you won't have to venture too far to discover the best vegan food that the area has to offer. I have done all the necessary research so that you don't have to.

The spending money used to put together this guide was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own.

Read on to unpack the ultimate guide to vegan eating and drinking in Covent Garden!

Jamaica Patty Co.

For the perfect vegan snack while you're on the go, pop into Jamaica Patty Co. for their vegan patties.

Wonderfully flaky crust, with a delectable vegetable filling that's bursting with flavour. You'll probably want to circle back round to buy a second one!

These sell out pretty fast, so be sure to get there early.

The Real Greek

Whether you're familiar with traditional Greek food or new to the cuisine, you can experience vegan versions of classics such as souvlaki wraps or dolmades (stuffed vine leaves). 

The Real Greek has a dedicated vegan menu so you can order with complete ease and confidence.

I highly recommend the jackfruit gyros wrap with vegan aioli!

Koshari St.

Koshari is a popular Egyptian street food that consists of grains, chickpeas, spiced vegetables and seasoned sauces, all topped with caramelised onions and doqqa (spice mixture).

At Koshari Street, you can build a vegan-friendly bowl from their bar of fresh ingredients that include fava beans, quinoa and stewed jackfruit. Perfect if you're on a health kick!

Redemption Bar

Although best known for their alcohol-free cocktails, this vegan restaurant also serves up a huge array of healthy brunch, lunch and dinner dishes. 

You'll want to round things up with one of their gluten-free, sugar-free treats, which taste just as good as they look. If you've got a sweet tooth, then this needs to be at the top of your list!

Wild Food Cafe

You cannot visit Covent Garden without dropping in at Wild Food Cafe! Right from the entrance, you'll be drawn into a world that's a feast for the senses.

Their bright and mostly raw menu will leave you feeling energised after your meal.

Treat yourself to their raw rainbow cheesecake!

Club Mexicana

There really is something for everyone in Covent Garden and if Mexican street food is on your mind then you need to pay these guys a visit.

Tasty tacos, burritos and fully-loaded nachos await you here. And the best part? Everything is 100% vegan!

Find them tucked away in Seven Dials Market.

By Chloe

If you're craving some diner fare or traditional British grub such as fish n' chips or Sunday roast, then look no further than By Chloe.

Their celery root roast comes with thyme roasted potatoes, vegan Yorkshire pudding (!) and a rich, warming gravy.

If you've still got space, sneak in a batch of their air baked fries or get it to go!

The Alchemist 

For a celebratory night out, The Alchemist offers vegan-friendly options in a buzzing, social setting. Their seitan bites and cauliflower katsu curry will leave you wanting more. 

Their vegan-friendly cocktails are the real appeal though! Get ready for a smoky, theatrical experience when you order the mad hatter cocktail for two. You'll want to capture the moment for Instagram!

Doughnut Time

Finally, it would be criminal to visit Covent Garden and not stop by at Doughnut Time to pick up one of their vegan doughnuts.

With flavours like lemon-blueberry, Biscoff and red velvet, these morsels of joy are worth the extra calories.

Always wanted to learn how to perfectly decorate doughnuts? They also offer vegan doughnut masterclasses!
