list restaurants outside Bruges

This list contains restaurants in the greater Bruges area in Flanders (and beyond), where vegans are welcome. For an extensive list of restaurants IN BRUGES, see this page in the menu section on top of my blog.
At the bottom there’s also a list with restaurants that have replied they don’t (and won’t) serve a vegan menu.

Some points to take into account:

  • In my inquiries to know whether a certain restaurant will serve vegans, I explicitly state what vegans do and don’t eat, most often via e-mail. I ask whether it’s possible to be served a vegan menu, for two people. I repeat the info when making the reservation and when visiting the restaurant.
  • Listed prices give you an indication, but if you want to be sure, check their website. Listed prices are without drinks.
  • The restaurants are listed per province/city, and then there’s a list with restaurants outside Belgium. If I have written a blog about it, with a more elaborate review of our visit(s), you will find the bloglink next to it.
  • These lists are not exhaustive. They are based on my personal experiences, restaurants which I have visited, or which I would like to go visit one day! I focus mainly on finding restaurants in Western Flanders (around Bruges) and in Louvain (as I visit Leuven / Louvain a lot).
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know, so I can check it out and add them to the list!
  • I try to keep the list updated as much as possible, and rely on information given by the restaurants themselves and personal visits. But of course things can change over time (restaurants closed, no longer serving vegan, openings hours, etc). If you want to be absolutely sure, please check with the place itself in advance.
  • This is just a labour of love. I am not an organisation, I don’t get paid, or get any other personal gains from doing this. So any feedback is appreciated 🙂

Not serving vegan or no reply

Restaurants explicitly stating NOT to offer a vegan menu, or which didn’t reply to our inquiries (with distance from Bruges).
We appreciate restaurants taking the time to reply to our request, even if they answer they can’t provide a vegan menu (because it’s not their specialty, because they don’t know how, because it requires too much reorganisation, etc.). Rather they are honest about it, then ending up being served some salad and tomatoes.
It’s a pity though some restaurants don’t reply at all.

Paul’s Boutique  Ghent & Kortrijk, burgers and fastfood. Mailed several times (2014 & 2015) to ask whether they have a vegan offer (and whether the buns and sauces are vegan). No reply.
Asked on their FBpage, no reply. Asked again 2016, specifically about the bread and sauces: ‘we have vegan burgers, you can get more info at the counter’. Would have appreciated a more conclusive answer, especially since there are several reports from people on social media stating that the buns are not vegan (contain dairy).

Orangerie Knokke, nor reply to our mails (07/2019 and 08/2020).

  1. About 15 years ago, I remember visiting a vegetarian restaurant in Gent called Panda. Does it still exist? I also remember visiting Lombardia in Antwerp. Having ordered a vegan meal, I wasn’t aware that some of the burger mixes were of ‘organic’ meat until one of the staff told me. Oh and does the Den Teepot vegetarian cafe/shop in Brussels still exist?

    • Yes, De Panda still exist! I should add it to the list, thanks. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been there, must go check it out again one of these days.
      I can totally understand your comment about Lombardia 😉
      Don’t really know about the Theepot. I’m not so familiar with Brussels. I think it’s still there, but will check it out!

  2. Secular Vegan says

    As you have listed Amsterdam I’m surprised that you have omitted De Waaghals on Frans Halsstraat. Coincidentally there is (or was the last time I was there) a wholefood shop next door called De Aanzet. It may be the only wholefood shop in Amsterdam that *doesn’t* sell meat. I have to say that from a vegan perspective Rotterdam, Den Haag, Haarlem and Leiden are / were all disappointing; as was Alkmaar though I had no expectations of finding a vegetarian restaurant there. It’s good to know that there is one in Maastricht, there wasn’t when I visited back in 1999.

    • This list is certainly not exhaustive, but based on personal experiences. But now that you mentioned Waaghals, it reminded me to add a few more restaurants in Amsterdam that we have visited but weren’t in the list yet!
      About the Loving Hut in Maastricht: it’s indeed only open since a couple of years!

  3. jenly says

    Thank. You so much for this list. I am planning a trip to this area with my family this summer and am trying to sort out an itinerary. We are a vegetarian family and I often base our travels on where we will be able to find options. I want to go to Bruges but am afraid! Do you have any sense of which cities it will be easier to get by in: Amsterdam. Bruges, Antwerp, Luxembourg, Cologne, Brussels. Thank you!

    • Hi Jenly, glad you found our blog.
      I have no idea about Luxembourg.
      I’ve heard and read that Germany/Cologne is ok for vegans, but it’s been ages sinces we’ve been there.
      Amsterdam also has a great deal of vegetarian and vegan friendly places.
      In Belgium: Brussels is the least veg friendly. Options are scarce, but Antwerp and Bruges (of course 😉 are ok.
      You might consider visiting Ghent or Leuven (Louvain), both Uni-cities with a lot of veg options.
