• Krishna's Pure Vegetarian Cuisine - their legendary lentil biryanis are a lunch staple for vegans visiting Cape Town.

• Bella Vegan - their vegan pita pockets are a must but be sure to visit Tuesday – Sunday as unfortunately, they're closed on Mondays.

• Govinda's Natural Food Café - Look for the Hare Krishna Centre and you'll find this cosy café serving mainly Indian fare.

• SOPHEA Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse - a great place, absolutely bright with positive energy, they offer vegan, vegetarian and lacto-vegetarian options in the Tibetan style. Their masala chai are a must-try!

• Lola's – this popular spot is a favourite among hip and fashionable Capetonians, be sure to schedule a visit as it comes highly recommended.

• Quensh - this cool and contemporary vegetarian and organic haven offers more than just vegetarian fare, they also have a great range of fresh organic produce.
