GLASGOW, UK. VERY VEGAN FRIENDLY

I was a bit disappointed to see that Glasgow does not appear in the list of vegan friendly cities. We have at least 6 totally vegan cafes and various vegetarian eateries that have good vegan alternatives. It's certainly one of the best cities for vegans in Europe I would say.

Hey David, good call.
Maybe it's because grass roots started selling meat, boo hiss.
Having lived in Glasgow I miss much of it, but I do think in Bann's and kalpna Edinburgh has the finer places.
But Glasgow smile's better overall.

I'd love to visit Scotland! I'd also love to see more folks sharing their reviews of, thoughts on & tips about the cities, towns & other places where they live & visit!

David, What are some of the other great places for vegans in Europe for that you've been to?

Personally, I am pretty spoiled as I already live in what is probably the most vegan-friendly city yet: Portland, Oregon, USA! If that wasn't enough, most of the main competitors for this honor are nearby & the whole region tends to be very vegan friendly.

So come visit us soon! :)

Time to put this back on the table... :)

Glasgow has been named most vegan-friendly city in the UK by Peta and has been voted 3rd best city to live in for veggies and vegans by VegfestUK in 2013.

I love the vegan places in Glasgow, especially Saramago, Stereo and The 78.

Glasgow is really a great city - not only for vegans. Can't wait to be back there.

Thanks DIN8!

Can you please share a link to those ratings by PETA & VegFest UK?

Also does anyone know of other good vegan-friendly place ratings for other countries in Europe, Europe as a whole and/or elsewhere in the world? I'm particularly interested in seeing people opinions on smaller cities and towns or at least ratings that consider population as a factor. Obviously London, England will have more veg-places overall than say Glasgow, Scotland but proportionately Glasgow may actually be more vegan-friendly. Thoughts & suggestions please! :)

Frankfurt (Main) in Germany has become more and more vegan friendly in the past two years with some vegan restaurants and caf├ęs and a vegan supermarket.
