Lots of choices - Edit

I had the vegan Vietnamese Bagel which was excellent and there was lots of other things to choose from with good gluten free options too.

Pros: Fast, fresh and friendly.

Best Inverness cafe - Edit

If you're visiting Scotland as a tourist you should really stop by this cosy little cafe in Inverness. It has a nice welcoming atmosphere with a decent amount of seating, and the vegan haggis is delicious! I'd recommend having it in a bagel, as it's a bit more substantial. My partner had one of the other options which was also good, but if you're feeling adventurous the vegan haggis should be your first choice.

Also check out Gus's narcissistic mirror if you're waiting for the toilet... 

Pros: Quick service speed, Friendly staff, Excellent food

Cons: Only one toilet , Doesn't always appear on my HappyCow

Great vegan bagels! - Edit

We came here for lunch and I was very impressed by the range of vegan options clearly marked on the menu, including two with hash browns in them! Very good food. We also got some cake to take away which was excellent.

Fantastic menu - Edit

It was very tempting to sit for another hour with wi-fi and sipping my juice and see if i could make it in time for the lunch deal....

One of my favourite things about places is when they've put as much effort into their veggie/vegan options as they have their non-veg menu. There are loads of vegan options here: vegan cheese, hash browns, peanut butter, nachos.... (nachos on a bagel, why have I never done this before?!), lots of teas, and almond, coconut, and soya milk for those who are dairyfree. A couple of salads if you don't feel like bread, a rack of magazines on the wall for chilling with a latte, both breakfast and lunch deals, I think the soup is always vegan, and the wifi password fully on display on the back wall above the counter. It was also less than a 5 minute walk from our hostel and it's a minute walk from my 2nd favourite place in Inverness, The Health Store.

Pros: Varied menu, Great vegan options, Good breakfast deals

My fav place in Inverness! - Edit

I really love blend, it is not a vegan restaurant, but it is full of vegan options, soups, cakes, bagels, breakfast, coffees... And thousands of vegan food!! The food is super tasty and the staff friendly and helpful! My favourite bagel is the nacho vegan one! And the soups and cakes are homemade, fresh and some of them gluten free as well!
If you are vegan definitely you have to come and visit this place. There is one con that I can find, just it is open mornings until afternoons. They don't serve dinner.

Pros: Great food, good quality, good value, friendly staff

Cons: They don't serve dinners

Firm favourite - Edit

This place has become a firm favourite of my (vegan) parents when they want to go somewhere in the centre. I was here last week and had a great slice of lime and matcha vegan cake, with a pot of oolong tea. About half the savoury menu is vegetarian with plenty as vegan. The soup is always vegan apparently. The place was busy with people eating in and people getting take aways.

Pros: Vegan cakes

Cons: Smallish

i wished I could give 5 stars - Edit

This small restaurant offers 7 (!) vegan options to eat, and a lot of vegetarian. In fact they have 4 vegetarian options which they can make vegan, 3 vegan options, look at my photo of the menu.

Unfortunately also some meat options but I hope they will dish them because their vegan options are delicious!

We ate the Nacho bagel and the Mushroom Satay, which were both delicious. They also have vegan treats and we ate the chocolate cake which was very good. They also have a lot of smoothies, freshly made.

The only thing besides going without meat :-) is to advice them to install an extractor fan, but a lot of UK small shops don't have them.

Pros: lot of vegan choices, friendly staff, delicious vegan food

Great vegan lunch - Edit

A fantastic range of freshly-made vegan and vegetarian sandwiches and bagels, a firm favourite of ours for a quick lunch.

The staff are helpful and the service is quick, and to top it all off there's a large selection of green teas and vegan cakes. They seem to do takeaway, too.

Highly recommended for a vegan lunch in Inverness.

Pros: Great food, Good service

Cons: Quite small inside

the best place for vegan cakes and more! - Edit

Everytime i have been here there have been at least 3 choices of vegan cakes, plus they make coffees with soya, almond or coconut milk (yum!). There are vegan friendly soups and rolls/bagels including gluten free. The fillings are great for veggies and vegans including vegan cheese; the black bean and salsa is my fave.
You can even get vegan tablet sometimes mmmm, brilliant little place for lunch.

Pros: vegan cake choices, open 7 days, free wifi, interesting vegan friendly fillings

Cons: evening opening would be good sometimes, maybe events in the evening?
