Vegan Southside & Newington

Cross North Bridge and head south from the city centre and you will discover one of the most vibrant areas in Edinburgh – Southside. This area is a hub for Edinburgh University students and so you will find lots of trendy shops, cafes and restaurants here – many of which cater for vegans.

This is where you’ll find lots of the city’s best cheap eats, from simple yet satisfying pies to a hearty plate of curry for less than a fiver, there is plenty to discover in this part of Scotland’s capital.

Want to visit only meat-free establishments? We’ve highlighted these for you in green (vegetarian) or dark green (completely vegan).
