Best Vegan Eats in Athens, Greece
Greece may be known for their souvlaki and gyro, but you'll find some of Athens's best restaurants are actually vegan. Athens has endless vegan restaurants to choose from and I've compiled a list of some of my favourites.
Peas Vegan & Raw Food Falirou 40, Athina 117 42, Greece
Peas Vegan & Raw Food has a cute looking storefront with a few seats outside. They are environmentally conscious and use environmentally friendly packaging, instead of single use plastic. They boast that their food is street food, but not junk food, made with quality ingredients and it most certainly is. They have a salad bar, grilled foods, veggie burgers and raw options such as zucchini noodles and even some delicious raw desserts like apple pie. This is definitely the place for raw vegans.
Vegan Beats Athens
Perikleous 56, Athina 105 60, Greece
Vegan Beat Athens may be a small little restaurant but you won't want to pass up this place, with its flavours that are anything but small. They offer dine in and take out and have a delicious selection of salads, burgers, gyro and even vegan desserts to finish off your meal. Be sure to try their mouth-watering Greek salad topped with vegan feta. Their staff is friendly and their prices are very reasonable.
Mama Tierra Akadimias 84, Athina 106 78, Greece Mama Tierra is a clean and modern looking place and if you like options, then Mama Tierra is the place for you! They have anything you could want such as vegan soutzoukakia, moussaka, falafels, Indian dal, burgers, pastas and too many more to list. They have seating inside and outside and even have 2 locations so you don't have to travel far to eat here. This place will no doubt satisfy both the vegans and non-vegans in your group!
Happy Blender Ifestou 39, Athina 105 55, Greece
Happy Blender is your go to vegan restaurant for any hour of the day. They have beautiful breakfast items like smoothie bowls, with some organic ingredients. They also have great options for lunch or dinner such as toasts, wraps, burgers, healthy desserts, such as raw sugar free energy balls and sugar free cakes. If you need a midday caffeine hit, they have you covered there as well. Their lovely colourful leaf wallpaper and the entire vibe of this place will leave you energized.
The Vegan Vandal Aminta 15, Athina 116 35, Greece
Last but not least, this place may have a small menu, but everything is so tasty you'll no doubt be asking for seconds. They have burgers, sandwiches and nuggets, that are cooked to perfection and leave even the non-vegans satisfied. The jackfruit burger is definitely a must try! The restaurant is small and it's best to plan for take out. Check back for a more updated listed, after my next visit to Athens!
