As you may have noticed, the trend of plant-based foods is on the rise all around the world and Ljubljana is definitely not falling behind. With new vegan options constantly popping up throughout our hometown, we do our part and indulge in them whenever we get the chance. Someone’s got to do the hard work, right? 😉
Here are our top picks of vegan deliciousness in Ljubljana, Slovenia! Enjoy and let us know which one is your favorite!
BEST BURGER – ORGANIC GARDEN
As soon as you step into this bright little bistro in the heart of Ljubljana’s old town, you are in for a very hard time of deciding which of their delicious creations to put in your belly. The unusually colored burgers are a must-try!
Location: Ciril-Metodov trg 11
Price: 6.90 – 7.90 €
BEST KEBAB – LOVING HUT CENTER
When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with Loving Hut. It is our go-to place for any meal of the day, and while there’s no shortage of delicious foods to choose from in this cafeteria, most of the time we go with the Vegibab. It is just THAT good! Opt for the mixed one; it is stuffed with tofu, tempeh and seitan pieces.
Location: Trg Osvobodilne fronte 14
Price: 4.50 €
BEST FALAFEL – ABI FALAFEL
Hidden in the quaint narrow street of Trubarjeva you’ll find the best falafel in town. The moment you step inside, the décor, smell and their specials transport you to the Middle East. Our favorite is the falafel special sandwich!
Location: Trubarjeva ulica 40
Price: 3.90 – 4.90 €
BEST SANDWICH/WRAP – ZAŽIV
This lovely bookstore/café is the kind of place where you can relax, have a cup of tea and slowly munch one of their superb sandwiches (panini style, of course) while meeting with a friend or doing some work online. Ask the friendly staff for daily recommendations!
Location: Rimska cesta 23
Price: 3 €
BEST PIZZA – PIZZERIA PARMA
Parma is Ljubljana’s oldest pizzeria, and since recently, their menu has expanded by an item very precious to a lot of vegans when it comes to pizza – vegan cheese! You can choose from any of the vegetarian pizzas on the menu and replace normal cheese with the vegan one. Could use a bit more veggie options, but the ones they have are delicious!
Location: Trg republike 2
Price: depends on the pizza, around 6.00 € + vegan cheese 0.70 €
BEST COFFEE – TOZD
This has to be the hippest place to get coffee in Ljubljana, period. There are bikes hanging from the brick walls, books you can read, and water is served in Erlenmeyer flasks. Their specialty is the house-made cold brew – enjoy it with soy or rice milk.
Location: Gallusovo nabrežje 27
Price: 2.20 € (rice milk latte)
BEST DESSERTS – BARBARELLA
Just thinking about the dessert window in this boutique little bistro next to Ljubljanica River makes our mouths water. We can honestly say we have never had a better vegan dessert! Enough said.
Location: Adamič Lundrovo nabrežje 3
Price: 4.90 €
BEST ICE CREAM – CACAO
There’s hardly an ice cream shop in Ljubljana that doesn’t serve at least one or two vegan flavors, usually even more. And since in most cases the scoops are big and the flavor is on point, it is hard to name only one place. But if you follow the “where the line is long, the ice cream is good” rule, Cacao Café is your place.
Location: Petkovškovo nabrežje 3
Price: 1.80 € (scoop)
