Looking for some yummy vegan food hotspots in Amsterdam? Well, you’re in luck because this vibrant city counts at least 35 exclusively vegan restaurants. Let me (a local) show you where to get the tastiest vegan food in Amsterdam!
Vegan food guide to Amsterdam
According to the Dutch Society of Veganism, the Netherlands counts 121.000 people who stopped using animal products. I think it’s safe to say that a big number of that group resides in Amsterdam.
Over the last 5 years, Amsterdam has slowly turned into a vegan paradise. For example, did you know that there are at least 200 restaurants in Amsterdam that offer delicious vegan options on their menu? Pretty awesome, huh!
Getting hungry? Then make sure to scroll all the way down to find out where to get the yummiest cruelty-free vegan ice cream and the amazing vegan dönner kebab.
See you soon!
Zest for Life
Zest for Life is a Raw Vegan Café located in the heart of the Museum District. So, whenever you’re done with Van Gogh you can head on over to this cozy place for a great lunch.
At Zest for Life you can enjoy some very delicious smoothies, a tasty rainbow pad thai or their special homemade veggie wraps with a little extra added magic.
Location: Van Baerlestraat 45 (Museum Quarter)
Mr. & Mrs. Watson
Mr. & Mrs. Watson is a favorite go-to place for many vegans in Amsterdam. This restaurant, and more specifically their cheeses, have been showered with awards.
Enjoy a ‘goat cheese’ salad or opt for the vegan cheesecake or tiramisu. They even serve a vegan Philly Cheese Steak. Seriously, this plant-based food bar will pleasure your tastebuds for days to come!
Location: Linnaeuskade 3h (East)
Dignita is one of my favorite brunch spots in Amsterdam. With two stunning locations, you can enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch in the heart of Amsterdam Zuid or in the oasis of the Hoftuin, located in the center of Amsterdam.
Vegan Junk Food Bar
With 4 bustling locations, it’s quite obvious Amsterdam loves Vegan Junk Food! The combination of mouthwatering plant-based snacks with graffiti, art and Hip Hop turns out to be the perfect recipe for a tasty meal.
Make sure to try the loaded fries AKA ‘Kapsalon’ and the Vegan Sashimi, my absolute favorites!
The Avocado Show
I think it’s safe to say that this is the most insta-famous restaurant in Amsterdam. Their stunning signature avocado dishes are true pieces of art and almost too picture perfect to eat. By far the best place in town to satisfy your avo cravings!
Well known in Amsterdam for their tasty homemade Snickers Bars and raw cakes, VegaBond is the perfect place to enjoy some delicious plant-based food.
You can shop your favorite vegan ingredients in the deli or sit down for a freshly prepared meal in Vegabond’s cafe.
In the mood for a yummy cruelty-free vegan experience? Then head on over to Amsterdam’s first VEGAN Mylk & Burger Bar. Deer Mama serves the best ice cream, gourmet burgers and mylkshakes in town!
Location: Ceinctuurbaan 71 (De Pijp)
The Meets Eatery
One of the best spots in town to enjoy a healthy homemade dish all day round. From a delicious açai bowl for breakfast to a pizza made of chickpeas for dinner.
Make sure to leave some room for a yummy Matcha cake as dessert.
At Spirit, you can enjoy a 100% organic & 100% vegan breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffet. Which means you get to pick from over 50 different seasonal dishes, drinks and desserts, all freshly prepared in the Spirit kitchen.
Try the Dutch Stampot in winter, it’s super delish!
Location: Czaar Peterstraat 2a (East)
Kebabi is another amazing concept by the creators of the Vegan Junk Food Bar. This time you get to enjoy their super tasty signature vegan dönner kebab(i) and some delish local craft beers.
Kebabi is the first vegan dönner kebab joint in the Netherlands but also serves the best loaded fries, waffle fries and finger foods such as Hummus bitterballen (a famous Dutch snack turned vegan).
Location: Overtoom 428 (South)
The Dutch Weed Burger Joint
Love burgers? Then you most definitely want to take a bite of a Dutch Weed Burger. And many other tasty plant-powered snacks!
The Weed Burgers are entirely guilt-free and enriched with seaweed and micro-algae. All harvested from a real seaweed farm in the Dutch Oosterschelde.
Besides burgers, they also serve some yummy Sea Nuggets, a Dutch Weed Dog, Seawharma (lol) and a Dutch Weed Bagel. I wish my stomach was bigger!
Location: Nicolaas Beetsstraat 47 (Oud-West)
