Vegan in Sevilla
Eating vegan and vegetarian in Spain is something that most might think to be impossible – but I’m here to tell you it isn’t. It’s actually completely doable and completely fun – there are a lot of wonderful places to eat at and shop at if you’re vegan, vegetarian or just like to switch it up.
So, you’re vegan in Sevilla? There are a handful of great places to check out.
Gaia Bar Écologico (Restaurant)
Gaia is the first and only (if I’m not mistaken) fully vegetarian restaurant in the city of Sevilla. Gaia has a great, comprehensive menu with vegan and gluten-free options and works to accommodate allergies, intolerances and the like. At Gaia, I had the vegan quiche and a side of salad. My meal was delicious and very filling. I also ordered the juice of the day (banana and small fruit). The restaurant is spacious, accepts reservations and is on the quiet street, Calle Luis de Vargas. Not to mention that they are completely organic.
Gaia is awesome – not only do they have an organic restaurant (as mentioned just above) but right next door, you’ll find their organic grocery store. I picked up some fruit and snacks for breakfast and for my plane ride over to Lisbon. The staff is also very helpful and they even accept credit cards. If you’re staying in Sevilla for more than a few days, Gaia is great for a big grocery haul. They even have a good selection of cosmetics, home products and baby products.
Found via HappyCow, La Habanita has a great menu with a ton of vegetarian and vegan options that are all clearly labeled. It is a “regular” restaurant but I’d say more than half the menu is vegetarian and vegan – win! I tried the lasagna, the vegan croquets (ah-mazing) and the tomato salad. Whether you’re in the mood for something green and fresh or something warm and comforting, La Habanita is your place. I stayed in Sevilla for two days and ate lunch there both days.
Coq & Roll Market
Despite it’s name (coq is a rooster in French), Coq & Roll is a great find for vegans and vegetarians. It’s a small, organic speciality grocery shop with a few tables for eating in. I had a light dinner (a vegan hummus and vegetable sandwich) and also noticed they had a great selection of fresh juices on the menu. The bread was nutty, wholesome and again, the best part – organic.
Torch Coffee Roasters
On the way to Maria Luisa Park and the Plaza de España, you will find Torch Coffee Roasters (on Paseo de las Delicias). A nice alternative to a chain like Starbucks, Torch serves almond milk, has Wi-Fi and computer outlets. Set yourself up to do some work or research or take your (iced or hot) coffee to go. Do take note that the desserts are not vegan but they do sell some fruit.
A vegan bakery? In Sevilla? Yes! Veganitessen is a vegan bakery also selling organic and other vegan products. Unfortunately, they were closed the two days I was in Sevilla (Sunday and Monday) so I didn’t get to visit. I definitely will next time – and if you get there before me, let me know how it is!
Those are my picks for eating vegan in Sevilla – but there are a few more over at HappyCow if you’re going to be in the city for a little longer and have more meals to adventure with.
