World Vegan Day is celebrated around the world every year on Nov. 1 to highlight the benefits of veganism for animals, people, and the environment. And Prague makes eating plant-based food ridiculously easy. With over 200 vegan restaurants in the city, the extensive vegan food scene previously earned Prague a place on Happy Cow’s list of top 10 vegan destinations in the world. 

Vegan food personality Randi Delano has made Prague her home for the past 7 years. She said “I first came to Prague Czech Republic in 2014 and it was love at first sight! The city is beautiful, the pace is comfortable, and the vegan food is abundant. I’ve had the opportunity to thoroughly explore the vegan food scene.”

But you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy the vegan fun on offer. Eva Hemmerová, Communications Manager of ProVeg Czechia, said "The number of people who limit their consumption of animal products in some way is increasing. According to a survey by FMCG Gurus for ProVeg Czechia from April this year, their number has increased by 10 percent since the end of 2020, with 3 percent of them eating vegan, 7 percent vegetarian, 25 percent flexitarian and 4 percent eating only fish. In total, this is already 39 percent of the Czech population.”

Expats compiled this list of recommendations (in no particular order) for places to go in order to eat and drink your way through the city of a hundred spires – vegan style.


Belzepub is a grunge-tastic anarcho-vegan vegan pub in Žižkov. It’s a very classic Czech pub, but with an amazing selection of exclusively plant-based burgers, fried cheese sticks, nachos and more! The staff are friendly, speak excellent English, and are happy to answer any questions. Their burger buns are homemade, and they even have a rack of secondhand clothes that you can buy for dirt cheap (all the income from their sale goes to donations). A visit to Belzepub is definitely a great way to eat your ethics!


Střecha (the Roof) is a cooperatively owned social enterprise founded in 2017 with a vision of serving traditional Czech food that is local + affordable + delicious + totally animal free. But their commitment doesn’t stop there. Střecha is also committed to offering decent employment and wages to people experiencing houselessness and the formerly incarcerated. As a workers co-op, every employee has a say in the decision-making process and every member shares the company's profit. You even have an option to buy a suspended meal for someone in need who cannot afford to eat. Hands down one of the finest places to eat in the city, vegan or not. 

La Donuteria

La Donuteria has some of the finest donuts in the city, and perhaps even in the country; they are soft, fluffy, and enormous (seriously, the donuts are the size of hubcaps). The menu is not entirely vegan. But the milk donut (made with coconut milk), lotus, strawberry, peanut butter, and forest fruit varieties are vegan, and they are extremely satisfying. Pro-tip: Stop by right after they open or order them first thing in the morning. The donuts are absolutely perfect all day long. But you cannot beat the life-changing experience of eating them warm and fresh right out of the oven.

Third Coast Pizza

The Prague pizza scene has always been centered on the classic Neopolitan style. But Third Coast Pizza landed on the scene recently and brought authentic Detroit-style pizza to add some variety to the local pizza experience. Founded by three U.S. transplants (ironically, none of whom are from Detroit), this place rocks an impressive and daring menu. Again, not entirely vegan, but their vegan selection is unmatched. We can’t say enough about them. In fact, we already said quite a bit! But be careful about when you visit because they're currently only open Friday through Sunday. Stay tuned for expanded daily hours!

The Street

Looking for a burger join that has friendly staff, late hours, and huge portions? Look no farther than The Street. And you just can't beat the selection. The Street offers a fully separate vegan menu with a staggering EIGHT CRAFT BURGERS and an equally stunning menu of sides. The burgers range from the classic to the adventurous. You’ll be tempted to stick to something safe like the Mexican burger. But seriously, don’t be put off by the vegan peanut butter burger with peanut butter sauce, spicy cranberry sauce, cheddar, bacon, tomatoes and red chard. Trust us. Just…trust us. Be warned, in-house dining is cash only. However, you can order from their website for delivery to just about anywhere and cards are accepted in this case.

The Tavern

Listen, we know this list is burger-heavy. But the people like what the people like. And The Tavern obliges. Serving up a collection of classic American comfort foods, the owners—Dean and Lori—have cracked the burger code. This is not a wholly vegan restaurant, but the vegan food they serve is served DAMN WELL. Try the magic mushroom truffle and Swiss vegan smashburger with homemade cashew cheese and herb-truffle mayo. Or try the west coast burger with a Beyond Beef patty covered in umami spices, slices of vegan American cheese, "Goop" sauce, salad, and pickles. Both are served on an irresistible pretzel brioche bun. And in my book, they are completely undefeated. Plus, rumor has it that more vegan menu items on the way!


Craving brunch-style food on the weekend? Have no fear. Satsang has American-style pancakes that can be slathered in butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, candied walnuts, and whipped cream. Completely vegan and big enough to keep you from eating again until lunchtime on Monday. Want eggs instead? No problem, they can do savory as well. Order their tofu scramble and customize it with everything from plant-based sausage to veggies.

Vegan House Karlín

Are you interested in something a bit more upscale? Try Vegan House Karlín. This newcomer to the vegan restaurant dining scene serves a menu of Czech and Asian fusion. Their menu also is curated to offer a broad range to guests with food allergies, sensitivities, and other special dietary needs. But their accommodating spirit doesn’t stop there. The restaurant is also wheelchair accessible and pet friendly in the staff’s ongoing efforts to make all guests feel extremely welcomed and comfortable.


This is your entirely vegan junk food dream shop. Hot dogs, nachos, and even a Philly cheesesteak. Come to Sabotage for the food but stay for the friendly staff. Like Střecha and Belzepub, this place has a very counterculture, socially conscious vibe that starts with caring about animals, people, and the planet, and ends with a plate of good food. Another cash-only establishment. But if you’re short, just stop in the Tesco Express right across the street and use the ATM. 

Electric Sheep Book Bar

You wouldn’t think someone would take one look at this city and say, “You know what this place needs? A nerdy vegan cocktail bar.” Yet remarkably, someone did exactly that! This impeccably stylish book-themed bar is fully vegan—from its tapas to its cappuccinos. But it is also an incredible social hub, with a packed schedule of FREE events, including book clubs, writing workshops, open mic nights, fan meetups, and more. Raise a glass and turn a page, and find out if androids do indeed dream of Electric Sheep.


Okay so the burgers are gre—no wait, come back! This one isn’t about the burgers. In fact, the burgers are temporarily off the menu! This secret vegan paradise has veganized the best of traditional Czech food, has the most original desserts, and typically ginormous Czech portions. But the best-kept secret? The loaded fries. Cheese sauce, meat, pickles…literally everything they have in the kitchen can be put on these fries. And it’s enough food for a standalone meal. The only reason why patrons may avoid this place is that they don't deliver and the location is in the depths of the Žižkov neighborhood, with its notoriously steep hills. But put on your mountain-climbing gear and DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS.
