Hi everyone, thanks for checking out my page. I’m Karen and I created this blog to document my vegan life.  I have been vegan for more than 5 years and vegetarian for approx. 5 before that. Hopefully, you will join me to find new restaurants, recipes and vegan treats as well as following my running journey with health and lifestyle related posts. I also love to drink coffee , eat cake and I am, of course, a huge animal lover, starting with my beautiful Jack Russell, Molly. You can contact me on londonveganbird@gmail.com

Thanks for reading, London Vegan Bird.

    Hi! My name is Kristen and I stumbled across your blog while researching Easter brunch in London with vegetarian and vegan options (not much comes up!) I am going to London in April with my mom and sister and would love any tips you may have on where to go that is vegetarian and vegan friendly! I am also looking for a vegan chocolate shop!

      Hi Kristen. I have lots of tips for vegan places in London. You have come to the right place. 🙂 Here are some of my favourites;

      Breakfast or brunch, if you are near East London, check out The Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green.

      Lunch – Wild Food Cafe in Covent Garden. Their super salads are fantastic and leave room for their yummy raw desserts. Also, a little on the pricey side but Tibits just off Regent Street is a buffet style lunch well worth the price tag.

      Dinner – A classic is Mildreds in Soho. London’s oldest vegetarian restaurant. The gyoza dumplings are amazing. If you want something more traditionally British, the Coach and Horses pub has an all vegetarian menu at the Tofush and Chips is a wonderful treat.

      Something sweet. I don’t know of any specific vegan chocolate shops but Hotel Chocolat has lots of dark chocolate options and the one in Covent Garden also offers a yummy hot chocolate with soya milk option. If it’s just something sweet you are after then I would 100% recommend Cookies and Scream in Camden market – a vegan and gluten free bakery. Their milkshakes are unbelievable! For something a little special, try Raw at La Suite West in West London for a fantastic afternoon tea.

      Hope this helps. Let me know if you’d like to know anything more and have a wonderful trip. xx

    Hello Karen,

    My name is Ryan Jones. First of all, thank you for all you do in promoting the vegan lifestyle and giving a voice to animals. Your blog is great. I’m really going to have to try that Thai Satay recipe. It sounds so easy and tasty!

    I am writing today as the partner program director for the PETA award-winning vegan handbag line, GUNAS (gunasthebrand dot com) Launched in 2009, GUNAS is a high-fashion, New York label driven by the cause of fostering animal rights.

    Since you are clearly focused on the same, I wanted to take a moment and reach out regarding an opportunity for us to partner together. Would love to hear back from you!
