The Top 5 Vegan Spots in Camden

The moment you exit Camden Town tube station and the many scents of the food traders hit you, it becomes apparent that you’ve arrived in a place ideal for food exploration. No stranger to foodie trends and iconic staples, Camden was one of the first and most firm supporters of veganism. Today, it boasts a beautifully versatile roster of vegan restaurants serving high-quality food, regardless of your diet preferences!

1. Mildreds

Churning out mouthwatering plant-based deliciousness since 1988, this popular Soho fixture opened its doors in a beautiful glass building on Jamestown Road intending to introduce extraordinarily high-quality plant-based food to Camden. Judging from their Tripadvisor reviews, it looks as if they’re smashing that goal! Drawing inspiration from international cuisine and with a knack for innovative food concepts, their menu has spectacular burgers that lovers of food, whatever their dietary preferences, will swoon over!

2. Namaste Camden

For those who love bold flavours and meat-free experiences, this is one to pay attention to. Beckoning in Indian food enthusiasts with tantalizing chaat, samosas, and a range of hearty plant-based options, including tofu curry and chana masala, it’s a must-visit location for anyone dining in Camden. Delight in authentic flavours, even if you follow a ‘Saatvic food’ philosophy, without onion or garlic, without compromising on taste.

3. Purezza

Vegan pizza? Just tell us where to run to! Purezza, founded in 2015, established itself as the first vegan pizzeria in the UK and has evolved since then to include an incredible variety of tastes. Vegan sourdough pizzas, gluten-free options, pasta, and desserts are among the scrumptious options on Purezza’s menu, and their dedication to cruelty-free ingredients and traditional alternatives has definitely put them on the vegan foodie map! They’re popular on TikTok and Instagram alike, showing off their stunning menu.

They’re easy to find on Google Maps, at:

43 Parkway, London NW1 7PN, UK

4. Temple of Seitan, Camden

Having recently moved to a new location in Camden, this restaurant has become something of an institution. Meat-free “fried chicken” is their speciality, served with delicious vegan sides in all shapes and sizes! Their burgers are also otherworldly, and thankfully, they decided to bring all these delicious options closer to us, just a stone’s throw away from the Camden Town station. And we can’t forget to highlight the facon – aka: fake bacon option, that’s just the cherry on top!

5. The Fields Beneath

Rounding off the list is a stunning cafe serving vegan cakes, croissants, sandwiches and more! This journey started for them as a reaction to one of their key members turning vegan and then evolved into a mission to normalise the diet in everyday life. That, and making amazing coffee. Looking at their Happy Cow reviews (a site for vegans to find places to eat), they’re hitting the mark and then some – with locals raving about their baked goods and stunning drinks alike.

You can find them at:

52a Prince of Wales Road, Kentish Town West, London, NW5 3LN
