Vegan and plant-based diets have become a lot more popular in recent years. You’ll find vegan ranges in supermarkets and vegan choices on the menu of most cafes and restaurants.

Exploring vegan dishes offers many culinary possibilities and opportunities to combine exciting textures and tastes, with choices ranging from beer-battered banana blossom with chips, and jackfruit biryani, to mac ‘n’ cheese hot dogs made with seitan. There’s plenty to enjoy, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or ‘flexitarian’.

Following on from our recent vegan top tips, here are more vegan places for you to try in Sheffield.

Apple pie bagel at Tigs

Tigs

We’re a newly opened vegan and vegetarian cafe located on Campo Lane just behind the Cathedral. We strive to make Tigs feel welcoming to everyone who visits us. Our regulars feel like friends, and we’re so grateful to have made such an impact so early on. It’s not only about good food and drink, the experience is what we’re really passionate about.

We specialise in New York-style bagels, freshly boiled and baked every morning. We currently offer plain bagels and a limited menu as this helps us keep wastage low and ensure everything is always fresh, something that is very important to us. We stock the lovely nevertheless cakes, as well as offering in-house bakes such as NYC-style cookies, brownies and pecan pie.

We’d recommend our Autumn special - the apple pie bagel. Our signature bagel gets dipped in cinnamon sugar then filled with apple pie filling, topped with vegan vanilla ice-cream and pastry crumb.

We’re really excited about veganism in Sheffield. I think as a city we’re spoiled for amazing food venues and we’re happy to contribute to more indie vegan options in the centre.

Shout out to Make No Bones at The Old Workshop, one of our fave places to visit for food and good cocktails.

Church - Temple of Fun

We are Church - Temple of Fun, a 100% vegan bar and restaurant in Sheffield’s Kelham Island / Neepsend district. We opened in the summer of 2018 and we pride ourselves on creating a truly unique experience, from the food and drink, to the decor and events.

Right now our menu offers a variety of junk food like burgers, loaded fries and sides. Our Syko burger is definitely a firm favourite, as it features a striking black burger bun and our special black Syko sauce. We are currently working on lots of exciting specials for Halloween and Christmas.

We love how creative vegan food is becoming, especially in Sheffield. There are so many great independents offering up tasty vegan grub that’s loved by both vegans and omnis. Once upon a time it could be a challenge to find somewhere to go for groups with people with multiple dietary preferences but now it’s easy!

Some of our team's favourites include; VorV, Icarus & Apollo and Doner Summer - we’re very lucky all these are our neighbours too.

Just falafels Salads

Salads & pickles at Just Falafs

Just Falafs

Just Falafs is a friendly Middle Eastern vegan eatery on Chesterfield Road in Meersbrook. We’re just around the corner from Meersbrook Park, which is a great place for a Just Falafs picnic on a sunny day.

The vibe of Just Falafs is a casual dining falafel bar - you can eat in and order takeaway. The staff have always had a reputation for being very friendly and we have a loyal following of regular customers.

We also do pop-up cafes at Union St co-working space on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month, 11:30am-2:30pm.

The focus of our meals are the homemade pita breads which are made fresh every day by us. We also make our own traditional-style Middle Eastern hummus which has a very creamy texture and is served at room temperature. We are well known for our varied salads and pickles such as amba spiced pickled white cabbage, and mint and lemon pickled onion.

The dish we would recommend at the moment and which we have just introduced, is the mixed pita. Lots of people have asked whether they can have falafel and shawarma together in a pita and now they can! This comes with hummus, salad, pickles and sauces.

We love that vegan food can be so varied and nutritious and it encourages people to be creative about food.

The vegan options in Sheffield are improving and there’s so much choice now. One of our favourites, although not a solely vegan place, is the Chakra Lounge in Fitzalan Square. They have great vegan options and the owners are friendly and helpful. They always have great vegan cakes as well. We also love the Hungry Buddha in the Moor Market who serve delicious Nepalese food.

Where else to try?

In the city centre, look out for the Icarus and Apollo pop-up at Union St, where you can enjoy exciting West African peanut curry or indulge in a vegan biscoff milkshake topped with vegan cream and banana. Alternatively, visit I&C at their base at Steelyard Kelham.

Head to John Street off London Road and call in at John St Kitchen to get your fill with a full monty breakfast brunch. We’d also recommend Cafe#9 in Nether Edge. They offer an ever-changing menu with comforting homemade dhals, as well as fabulous sweet treats.

We've heard good things about Slap and Pickle’s vegan options, and you can order your burger online and collect from Heist Brew Co's taproom on Neepsend Lane.

Finally, a shout out to Get Wurst where you can get your vegan wurst in Two Thirds Beer Co on Abbeydale Road, and Paesani in Crookes for their range of delicious homemade vegan pizzas.
