Though Czech cuisine is traditionally heavy on meat, Prague is extremely progressive when it comes to dietary preferences. Vegetarian options are pretty much everywhere, and vegan options are increasingly available even in non-vegan restaurants. Though I myself am an unrepentant meat-eater, I had to find a way to accommodate a vegan friend visiting Prague. So here is an extensive (though incomplete) list of where you can find vegan food in Prague.

Perhaps one of the hardest things about being vegan in Prague is not being to experience traditional Czech cuisine. Thankfully, Shromazdiste has got you covered with vegan versions of Czech favorites like scvickova, potato dumplings, and goulash.
This buffet-style vegan bistro features Indian curries and falafel as well as other rotating dishes made with the freshest ingredients of the day. Easy for a quick lunch or take-out, your food is paid by weight.

Though this is an international chain and there’s nothing specifically Czech about it, sometimes it’s nice to visit a restaurant you know and love. It’s like going to McDonald’s in Japan.

It’s easy to see how vegan-friendly Prague is. So don’t let the pork knuckles and heavy beef dishes of the Czech Republic put you off from visiting if you’re vegan.
