5 stars!

Incredible vegan options!! Plenty of alternative milks for beverages, vegan pastries, vegan brunch/lunch items. Can’t wait to come back! I’d give it 5 stars if I could but they’re not fully veggie.

Pros: Vegan milk options, Vegan pastries, Vegan brunch/lunch menu items

Great vegan omelette

We got the vegan breakfast with vegan omelette, pancakes, avocado bread with sweet potato and dips and the vegan omelette with sweet potato and veggies. I really enjoyed the omelette and probably try do it it myself soon. We only had to wait a long time till they came to us and took our order.

Nice coffee

Really nice place in via Cavour, cozy and modern space with lots of natural light, perfect for study or to grab a coffee.
They served some vegan dishes, we had sweet potato toast with guacamole and vegan pancakes. Worth it to visit

Great food, great service

I got the vegan pancakes and hash browns. The hash browns are just cut fried potatoes but they are delicious. The staff is very knowledgeable on veganism. I ordered a bagel to go from the restaurant side and they included some chips in my box extra. Love these guys! Perfect if you are hungry and in town traveling.

Pros: Lots of vegan options,, Good atmosphere

Nice cafe!

The sitting area is big and well put together as was the outdoor patio. Vegan bowl was great and the smoothie/juice menu had many vegan items! I go to school in Florence, and this is one of my favorite places to study. The more “American” menu items (iced coffee & vegan bagel sandwiches) and English-speaking staff give me a sense of familiarity whenever I’m missing the states.

Pros: Vegan pastries +, Cute “green” atmosphere with a big dining area, Free wifi

Nice brunch place

The place is very pretty with cool plants and marple floor. I liked the decorations.
The vegan plate for 15€ was a bit too small to share. We used some more salt for the scrambled tofu, then it was really nice. Best thing on the plate was the banana pancake.

Average food

Good to see so many vegan options on the menu. We ordered the vegan bruch plates. They were very disappointing: salad without dressing, tasteless tofu scramble and avocado toast. The pancakes were nice so I would recommand ordering those instead of the plate😄

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Location

Cons: Expensive, Food not good

A really beautiful interior and garden area. €7 for an acai bowl (with granola and other toppings) and €8 for a vegan bowl which was a great portion size and full of tasty quinoa and various veggies. Vegan croissant. Great healthy food

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Beautiful interior , Friendly staff

Our go to spot for breakfast in Florence

Had breakfast here everyday during our stay in Florence. Had the vegan pancakes (with maple syrup instead of peanut butter) and the vegan bagel mostly. And the vegan wrap. Juices are also great, but a bit expensive. The price for food an coffee though is very reasonable!

Pros: Enough vegan options, Cheap good coffee, Fair price for food

Cons: Expensive juices

Best vegan options for a cafe in Florence

Shake cafe is THE place to go for a vegan ‘pick-me-up’.
Shake cafe offers tons of amazing vegan items that are clearly labeled in English. They have an extensive menu offering smoothies, breakfast and lunch items, desserts, and coffee. All of the food and drinks we had was 10/10. The staff is nice and helpful in case you have any questions about the menu items.

There is not much seating inside the small cafe. I would suggest getting it for takeaway and sitting to the left of the cafe on the steps of the Catholic Church.

We ended up going a couple times to Shake Cafe and below is the vegan items we had:
Avocado Toast
Oat Milk Cappuccino (lots of other milk options)
Oat Milk Latte
Chia Pudding
Chocolate Protein smoothie bowl
Tomato, hummus, spinach bagel

Pros: Lots of vegan choices, Lots of vegan ‘milks’

Cons: Small

Would give five stars if I could. So good!

Friendly staff, plenty of delicious vegan options including salads, bowls, wraps, sandwiches, burgers, soups and sweet treats in the cabinet. You can make your own salad as well. Has non-dairy milk for drinks. All really healthy, whole-food dishes with easonable prices as well. Would definitely come back.

Pros: A ton of vegan options, Healthy and whole-food based, Great location

Cons: Serves meat

einfach unglaublich lecker !!!

Zwar sind icht alle Sachen vegan, es werden Milchproduktion sowie Fleisch angeboten... jedoch kann man die Gerichte nach seinen Wünschen anpassen ... ich habe mir den veganen Wrap mit Süßkartoffel, Hummus und Blumenkohl zusätzlich Avokado bestellt außerdem noch eine Acai-Bowl mit Granola und Früchten wobei ich gesagt habe das ich statt der Kuhmich gerne Mandelmich hätte... Beides war unglaublich lecker ...

Pros: Viele vegane Optionen, nicht zu teuer , freundliche und hilfsbereite Bedienung

Largest Shake Cafe in Town

This newest Shake Cafe is huge, turns a place known as a hole in the wall to a quite large eating establishment by Florentine standards. There are many vegan and veganizeable options among the wraps, sandwiches, smoothie bowls, salads, juices and smoothies, and desserts. Hopefully some time in the future additional items such as brown instead of white rice, whole grain wraps, etc. will also be available. The staff were friendly and the place had a great informal and fresh vibe. We’ll certainly be back!
