THE BEST PLACES FOR VEGAN FOOD IN EDINBURGH

Edinburgh has a vast selection of amazing eateries, and a vast selection who cater for vegans. There are dedicated restaurants and cafes for vegetarians/vegans, and also lots of places who either have a separate vegetarian/vegan menu, a dairy-free selection, or are happy to adjust a dish to suit.
