ul. Kraińskiego 14, Wroclaw, Poland
Baszta is located in an old city fortification tower (hence the name Baszta). For me that's already reason enough to check it out. The atmosphere is great. And the food does the job as well. I've been here a few times and haven't been disappointed. The Pieczone Francuskie with tempeh have been my favorite thus far. (I don't remember what that is in English.)
And as far as veg restaurants in Wrocław it's also open late, 23:00 on weekends. It's not easy to find good veg food that late otherwise.
ul Sw Antoniego 23, Wroclaw, Poland
Interesting cafe shop with small food selections
I've only been here twice. Once I had a very tasty vegan sandwich. The next time they had no vegan food. (And I was starving.)
Anyway, the atmosphere is great. The tea (and espresso) is tasty. The people are nice. And there is comfortable seating. If I was more of a "person who likes to spend time in cafes" I would spend more time here. As it is, I'll visit every once in a while to hang out and read. (They have a massive selection of reading material, in both English and Polish.)
Tambon Hai Ya, Thesaban Nakhon Chiang Mai, Chang Wat Chiang Mai , Chiang Mai, Thailand
My favorite veg restaurant in Chiang Mai
Some quick details: The price per dish is 25 Baht and this place is open from 7:00 - 15:00. (Closed Sunday and during the yearly Songran Festival.)
WOW, I love this place. The owner only speaks Thai. When you walk in, bow and say "Sawadee Krup/Ka" (depending on your gender) and she will treat you like a grandchild. :) She is all smiles and very kind. I order 4 meals from here every...single...day. 2 to eat in, and 2 take out and put in my fridge for later. Although my record for one day is 6 meals. :)
The English menu has 9 options. My recommendation is get whatever you like. I'm not a huge fan of noodles (I know, blasphemy in Thialand) so I usually order the non-noodle dishes. My favorites are Khow-Phat and Phat-Pak. The soup (it's just Soup on the menu) is amazing.
Don't be afraid to drink the free water provided. (I know some traveler's are weary of water-borne illness.) It's perfectly fine. Free ice cubes in a big bucket as well. :)
You will not usually find expats or backpackers here. This is a legitimate Thai place. Look for the sign that says "Save Thunya" and "Vegetarian Food" on your right hand side as you're walking south down Nantharam Rd (south of Chiang Mai Gate). If you reach Smith Residence (a very nice serviced apartment building) you've gone too far.
I implore you. You must absolutely, positively, no ifs, ands, or buts about it eat here.
Zygmunta Krasinskiego 32, Wroclaw, Poland
Great little veg*n store!
If you're looking for difficult-to-find veg products this is a good place to visit. I go there about once/week to pick up almond butter (!!!), hummus (!!!), as well as a few other essentials. It's a nice place with great prices (seems to be cheaper than everywhere else) near the center. I always feel good when I can support small, locally-owned, stores instead of the large chain stores so I'm glad Swinki Trzy is around.
And seriously, almond butter! I didn't think I'd be able to find that in Poland.
Calle 49B Oeste, Panama City, Panama
I eat here nearly every day.
I've been in Panama City nearly a week and I've eaten here 6 or 7 times. Mostly because it's the cheapest of the vegan restaurants ($0.50 per scoop/serving) and they all basically have the same food. It's nothing special, but it does have more options than the other restaurants in the city.
Ruska 19, Wroclaw, Poland
Healthful vegan restaurant in Wrocław
This restaurant just opened recently and I've been there twice. Every day they have a different Danie Dnia (meal of the day) for 20PLN (~$7USD at the time of this writing; does not include drink) as well as other food/cake/drink options that I haven't tried. Both of my meals were flavorful and filling, but I won't comment on the specific food since when you visit it will likely be different. Just know that it's prepared wonderfully well and you will not walk away disappointed.
The location of Machina Organika is immediately outside the main city center area (which is small). If you're in the Rynek (market square) it will be a 5 minute walk to vegan goodness.
The atmosphere is nice, earth tones, with chilled out electronic music playing both times I visited.
Note: In my original view I called this a raw vegan restaurant based on their facebook information, but pretty much every time I've been there in the past few months the meal has been warm (sometimes pasta) and decidedly not raw. I guess they changed. But it's still all vegan.
Jaskolcza 15, Poznan, Poland
What a great baked potato!
I was a bit apprehensive about this place because there was nobody inside besides staff. But it did not disappoint. I got the "hot" menu option with a vegan kielbasa. It's basically a huge baked potato topped with an enormous amount of tasty toppings. I also got a green smoothie that was quite tasty. All in all, the best meal I had while in Poznań.
29/4 Chang Moi Kao Rd, Tombol Chang Moi, Amper Muang, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Black sticky rice with mango/banana oh my!
I've been in Chiang Mai for about 10 days now. I live by the Chiang Mai Gate, 2km from May Kaidee's. How often do I walk to May Kaidee's? Sometimes twice/day. Yes, it is that good. Most dishes are 50 Baht, and the family that runs it is just wonderful. This is my second favorite veg restaurant in Chiang Mai. :) I don't give willy-nilly 5 Cow ratings, and if there was a 4.5 option I would give it that, because I'm a stickler. Whatever. I highly recommend you eat here.
Calle Ricardo Arias, El Cangrejo, Panama City, Panama
Decent option in a sea of no options.
Panama isn't particularly veg*n friendly so it's great that there are options such as Me Gusta Comida Vegetariana. It's mostly uninteresting food presented cafeteria style (~$0.75 per scoop/serving) but again, I'm glad it's an option.
Note: The hours on this listing are wrong. It's not open on Sundays or Holidays and it is only open until 5pm on Saturday. I also think it's only open until 9pm on weekdays.
Ul Piekary 17, Poznan, Poland
Ugh, are the other reviews shills?
I was excited to try mixtura, especially considering the reviews.
Ordering took 10 minutes. The counter girl was having a social chat with the people in front of us, which was quite annoying.
But I can get past that.
I ordered a latte and a tempeh burger. My friend ordered an orange juice.
The orange juice arrived after 30 minutes. 5 minutes later for the latte. And then 30 minutes *later* for the burger.
The bun was hard and difficult to eat and it was maybe one of the world vegan burgers I've consumed.
If the service was good I'd get over the fact that the food wasn't. But being that both were bottom of the barrel I don't know how this place stays in business.
Nożownicza 40 Wrocław, Wroclaw, Poland
Amazing soups, great pierogi
If you want vegan pierogi you must visit Najadacze. They are incredibly tasty. They also have amazing soup. Whatever the soup of the day happens to be, get it. I would also recommend the chow mein.
The only thing I don't recommend is Kofta. It tastes great when it's done well, but it has been hit and miss (often miss) for me.
This is a small restaurant tucked away just outside of Rynek (market square). If you're coming with a large group there won't be much room for you, but you might be able to make it work.
Szewska 44-46, Wroclaw, Poland
Great vegan pizza in traditional Italian style
For vegans the menu is limited, but that doesn't matter. Get the Marinara (the original - some would say - Italian pizza, simply made with sauce and garlic) for 12zł and you will love it. I promise. I've ordered it at least 5 times and it has been consistently great. Their dough is thin and chewy and the sauce is tangy and perfect.
They do have vegan cheese as an option if you so desire. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don't. Their cheese-less pizza is so good I often don't want to ruin it with cheese.
Piec Na Szewskiej is often busy so sometimes you might have to wait a while for your pizza. I'm not a fan of waiting, but in this case it's worth it.
Menu guide (since most items are not veg*n):
2 green stars means the item is vegan.
1 green star means the item is vegetarian.
And again, vegan cheese is an option, but you have to ask for it. (No extra charge.)

Krupnicza 3, Wroclaw, Poland
Great veg food, fast
This is a mostly takeout restaurant (4 seats if you want to sit and eat) just outside the city center (near Kino Nowe Horyzonty movie theatre) with a selection of wraps and sushi. As well as a vegan box of the day and soup. I've been there a few times since they opened and have tried a bit of everything. The sushi and miso soup have been my favorite so far, but I also liked the wraps and the chili box I tried.
The sushi really is something unique as far as sushi is concerned. It's much more gourmet than you'd expect from a takeout restaurant and I think you'll be quite happy if you order it.
Rynek - Ratusz 27a, Wroclaw, Poland
My favorite veg*n restaurant in Wroclaw!
I love this place. Traditional Polish foods, as well as non-traditional Polish foods, with many vegan options. I ate here dozens of times when I was in Wroclaw for 5 months (2010). I'm looking forward to going back in a few months. Everything I had there was phenomenal and I even introduced omnivores to the food who would agree with me.
Plac Kosciuszki 12, Wroclaw, Poland
Good food, uncomfortable chairs
Why is it that coffee shops always have uncomfortable seating? It's worse when the coffee shop serves food and you want to eat with some semblance of comfort.
Oh well, this coffee shop / book store / veg*n restaurant is nice. And I like that it's in a different location than the rest of the veg*n restaurants in the city. It's still close to the city center, but it's just far enough to get you to explore a bit.
(And if you do explore, go into the nearby Renoma mall, take the elevator to the top floor, and get an awesome free outdoor view of Wroclaw from the top floor parking.)
Anyway, good chocolate cake and generally good food, but it's not my go to place in Wroclaw for 2 reasons:
1) Too many children. Maybe it's just my luck, but it seems to be a favorite of parents with young children.
2) Uncomfortable seats.
If you're cool with that then definitely check it out.
Ofiar Oświęcimskich 19, Wroclaw, Poland
Good veg*n fast food
They have a nice selection of veg*n fast food and the prices are nice. Wednesday is usually "any pizza for 13zł" day. (Vegan cheese is an extra 2zł.)
I don't often go there anymore for reasons I won't write in public. (Though I've dropped my rating from 5 to 3 cows.)
