Vegan Restaurants in Edinburgh that have closed

This is a really horrible page to write, but it has to be done. Sometimes despite having a great offering and a loyal fanbase, vegan-friendly cafés and restaurants have to close down.

This could happen for any number of reasons. Sometimes the establishment is taken over by new management and changes into something completely different, sometimes the owner moves on to bigger and better things, or perhaps they want to focus on another business venture.

If you are trying to find that place you haven’t visited in a while but can’t find its information anywhere, you might want to check the list below to make sure it hasn’t closed down. You might be here because you are trying to visit the page of an establishment that no longer exists – any pages I have taken down for this reason are automatically directed to this page.

If your favourite café or restaurant has closed down, it may not necessarily mean that you can’t enjoy their offering or find them somewhere else. If that is the case, I’ve put the relevant info of where to go next beside the restaurant name.
