As the capital city of the Czech Republic, or Czechia as it is so-called locally, there’s no denying that Prague is filled with interesting, historical, and unusual things to do. But what may well surprise many visitors to the city is the sheer number of meat-free restaurants and casual veggie dining options on offer. Here’s your ultimate guide on where to find the best of vegetarian and vegan in Prague.
Address | Veleslavínova 93/10, 110 00 Josefov, Czechia
Visit for: Vegan burgers, noodle bowls, wraps
Hands down one of the best places in the city to find vegan fare in Prague is at Forky’s on the fringes of the old town just a few minutes walk away from the Old Town Square. Serving all kinds of meat-free vegan fast food such as Nofish and Chips and even Currywurst, if you make it your mission to sample just one vegan restaurant while in the Czech Republic capital, make it Forky’s. Check out the website for opening hours and dish prices.
Address | Týnská ulička 1064/6, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
Visit for: Soups, salads, noodle dishes, burgers, and more!
For those who are looking for a chic dining option where the food is incredible and the decor is oh-so Instagrammable, Maitrea can be found on a little cobbled lane that’s steps away from Prague’s Old Town Square (i.e. the spot where you’ll spy the Prague Astronomical Clock).
Set over two floors, the decor of the Prague vegetarian restaurant (though several vegan and raw food options are also on the menu) is all pretty and pastel. The lower floor even features a glittering bar and trickling water feature. Perfect as a date night venue, this eatery is a little pricier than others on this list but the quality of the food is definitely worth the extra koruna! Check out the website for opening hours and dish prices.
Address | Nerudova 221/36, 118 00 Malá Strana, Czechia
Visit for: Traditional Czech food made vegan, light snacks, vegan Buddha bowls
If you’re looking for a taste of some local cuisine while in the city, then you simply must head to Vegan’s Prague. Located in the Malá Strana district of the city, i.e. the area of Prague where you’ll find the Castle, Cathedral, and row upon row of fairytale lookalike houses and many flights of steps, this restaurant is set over two floors, with a terrace at the top for sunny days!
Though the terrace is home to just a few seats, its elevated position means that you can enjoy Czech Vegan food with unparalleled views of Prague Castle! Some of the more unusual delights of the menu include traditional goulash and Svíčková with dumplings. Check out the website for opening hours and dish prices.
Loving Hut Prague
Address | Dům Černá labuť, Na Poříčí 25, Petrská čtvrť, 110 00 Praha, Czechia
Visit for: A buffet-style canteen pay by weight restaurant serving noodles, sushi, faux-meat dishes, and soups
There are several different Loving Hut locations dotted across Prague, though we personally visited the restaurant at Dům Černá labuť. Close to a shopping centre and the Museum of Communism, this all-vegan restaurant is located on the first floor, just above a vegan health food shop and a smoothie bar.
Loving Hut is a chain that can be found all across Europe, including in Paris, and the buffet is charged by weight so you simply need to pay for what you want to eat! As such, once inside pick up a plate, help yourself to whatever you fancy eating, and pay at the counter. You can also purchase homemade lemonade for 15 koruna and homemade soup of the day. Check out the website for opening hours and prices.
Address | Vladislavova 24, 110 00 Nové Město, Czechia
Visit for: Indian vegetarian food with plenty of vegan options.
As well as Loving Hut, another pay by weight canteen-style cafeteria can be found in several different locations across Prague. Currently, the number of vegan restaurants stands at over a dozen, meaning you’re never too far away from one of these canteen style restaurants!
The first shop was opened 15 years ago and thus Dhaba Beas was born. Food is self-service and the menu is changed on a daily basis, meaning that there will likely be something new to try and sample each time you visit. Much like Loving Hut, this Prague restaurant is pay by weight, so you only need to purchase the amount of food you wish to consume!
Moment Vegan Bistro and Cafe
Address | Slezská 62, 120 00 Vinohrady, Czechia
Visit for: Breakfast foods made entirely vegan
For those looking for a 100% breakfast, brunch, or lunch vegan in Prague option, Moment bistro offers this. Delicious foods such as scrambled tofu, smoothie bowls, and fluffy pancakes can be found on the menu, as well as a variety of speciality coffees.

Address | Krymská 24, 101 00 Praha 10-Vršovice, Czechia
Visit for: Vegetarian brunch and evening dinners with vegan and gluten-free options
For the best brunch in town, you simply need to head to Satsang on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Otherwise, this restaurant operates in the evenings only for dinner. Delicious dishes and drinks on the weekend menu include mouthwateringly delicious vegan pancakes, eggs benedict, and brunch cocktails such as mimosas and Bloody Mary drinks.
Dinner is served on a daily basis from 5 PM to 11 PM and the menu boasts a fully vegetarian homemade selection. Options include a mezze selection (with foods such as homemade garlic bread and vegetables), soups, salads, noodle dishes, pizzas, and veggie burgers. Some dishes are vegan and gluten-free. Check out the Satang restaurant Facebook page for more information on opening times and dish prices.
Address | Boršov 280/2, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
Visit for: Risottos, quesadillas, salads, noodles
The sister brand to that of MAITREA, the name Lehká Hlava quite literally translates to ‘clear head’. Serving predominantly vegetarian fare, there are also several vegan options on the menu. The decor of the restaurant is chic and provides the perfect date night venue, with starry murals and stunning low-lit dining spaces.
This Prague vegetarian restaurant was opened in 2005 and is set against the backdrop of a centuries-old historic building dating back well over 500 years. Highlights of the food menu include tofu green curry, grilled goats cheese salads, and tacos. There are plenty of vegan options and several of the vegetarian dishes can be made vegan on request.
