Vegan Sydney – 20 of the Best Vegan Eateries

Vegan Sydney? It wasn’t too long ago that being vegetarian in a restaurant in Australia meant choosing between spinach cannelloni or vegetable lasagna. Being vegan meant hanging out at the salad bar with maybe a bread roll on the side.

Thankfully modern day Sydney is a much different place to be. With more and more people embracing a cruelty free lifestyle, there are now lots of vegan friendly and 100% plant based eateries to choose from.
