Until somewhat recently, vegans living in or visiting Luxembourg had a pretty tough time eating out. While the country does boast an impressive twelve Michelin star establishments and is famous for its high density of fine dining restaurants, vegan and vegetarian options were few and far between.
Today Luxembourg may still be far from a vegan paradise, but the situation for herbivores has improved exponentially within the last years and months. Below you’ll find a list of our favourite places, all of which can easily be reached on foot from our youth hostel in Luxembourg City:
Flowers Kitchen is a cosy vegan food bar/restaurant that offers nicely presented, healthy and wholesome meals. While the restaurant doesn’t offer the widest variety of dishes, its menu changes daily and is guaranteed to be fresh! A weekly overview of what you can expect is always available on the restaurant’s website. Unfortunately Flowers Kitchen isn’t open during the evening, but if you’re anywhere near the train station during the day, this is a fantastic place to chill and grab a bite.
Mon.-Fri. 08:00-17:00, Sat. 11:00-17:00. Closed on Sundays.
Formerly a vegetarian restaurant, Beet went fully vegan in 2018 and has long been a popular choice for herbivores and omnivores alike. The restaurant specialises in burgers as well as Middle Eastern foods such as falafel, baba ganoush and hummus. To top it all off, Beet offers a tasty selection of local craft beers. As this place can get pretty busy around lunch and dinner times, we suggest you book a table in advance to avoid disappointment.
Tue.-Thu. 12:00-21:30, Fri.-Sat. 12:00-22:30, Sun 11:30-15:00. Closed on Mondays.
Despite the name, this “café” is actually a vegan Indian restaurant. Located half-way between the train station and the capital’s Old Town, Nirvana Café offers an affordable lunch buffet as well as Indian food classics such as momos, pakoras, samosas, masalas, curry and tasty vegan deserts. The place has a bit of a spiritual vibe about it, but nothing you can’t ignore if you’re not into that sort of thing.
Mo.-Fri. 09:00-15:00 and 17:00-21:00, Saturdays 09:00-21:00. Closed on Sundays.
Similar to the above-mentioned Flowers Kitchen, OAK offers a fresh, vegan menu that changes every day as well as a special salad of the week. While the bistro is incredibly popular for all the right reasons – not to say ‘hyped’ – OAK caters exclusively to a working day’s lunch break crowd, which is also the only time it’s open. If you’re in the area around lunch time and fancy an absolutely delicious vegan meal without spending hours in a restaurant, this is the place to be. For anything else you’ll just have to be patient and hope that OAK decides one day to open on weekends or evenings.
Mon.-Fri. 12:00-14:30. Closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Rawdish is a vegetarian food-bar with two locations in Luxembourg (one near the train station, one in the shopping area of the Old Town) and several vegan options ideal for takeaway or to eat on the spot. All ingredients are said to be fresh, organic and overwhelmingly local. Furthermore, if you’re not that hungry, Rawdish also sells a tasty selection of juices. The only downside of this place – for some people at least – is the size of the portions.
Opening hours of the two locations differ. We suggest you check their website!
