THE LIVERPOOL FOOD SCENE HAS BEEN BOOMING OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS.
Plant based cafés and restaurants arevpopping up in both the city centre and suburbs. Making dining out so much easier for a vegan than it used to be! There are many more places that are vegetarian/vegan. Also most city centre restaurants have one or more vegan options.
A little bit about me. I’m Andrea and after being vegetarian for 36 years, I became vegan just over two years ago. I’m passionate about food, all living beings, the Earth, music and Liverpool! I run Beatroute Liverpool, taking visitors and locals on vegan food tours of the city. The tours are a combination of guided walk and food crawl. Introducing you to some of the amazing vegan food from local independent businesses. While learning a little about the city and hearing some stories and anecdotes along the way.
The tours are not only for vegans! As long as you have an open mind and a willingness to try new food, you will be warmly welcomed. For now enjoy my list of vegan, veggie friendly eateries that I recommend you try.
