Looking for somewhere dog-friendly and vegan in London? No problem! Benito* and I have you covered!

*Unfortunately Benito’s not pictured above because he tends to move too fast in cafes for me to capture his image but he is pictured below.

Since I moved back to London last year, I’ve been taking my vegan dog, Benito, to loads of vegan events, markets, meals and more. And I’ve been curating a big list of dog-friendly vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and cafes.

A lot of independent pubs and many small, indie coffee shops are dog-friendly, but restaurants are another matter. A lot of restaurants won’t let you bring your dog, but more and more are starting to allow our four-legged friends to join us for dinner. The good news is most vegan restaurants are dog-friendly! Makes sense, right?

I’ve divided the dog-friendly vegan London restaurants and cafes by area below but first I wanted to tell you my four favourite places to go with my dog in London!

V+ = Vegan
V = Vegetarian with vegan options
VF = Vegan friendly (omni restaurant/cafe with vegan options)

Top 4 Dog-Friendly Vegan Spots in London

Jaz & Jul’s (V)
An all-vegetarian and mostly vegan chocolate house in Angel that’s also dog friendly? Heaven! I go here with Benito all the time and it’s doggie heaven (apart from the fact he can’t eat anything in the place!). Dog water bowl by the entrance, dog-friendly furniture and a super dog-friendly staff.

PickyWops (V+) (small dogs only)
Not only do these guys make a wicked vegan pizza (make sure you get their homemade cheese on yours!) but they’re also extremely dog-friendly (and friendly in general). Above and beyond service; when I went downstairs to go to the bathroom and my dog started whining, they came over and played with him until I came back up!

Essential Vegan Cafe (V+)
Not only did Essential Vegan’s owner Vanessa greet Benito very warmly, and promptly offer him a bowl of water without me even asking, but they sell vegan sweet pawtato chews (my dog’s favourite snack!), so your doggie can have a treat while you do too. (And speaking of treats, don’t miss Vanessa’s amazing cakes!)

The Blacksmith & The Toffeemaker (V+)
This pub went vegan in January 2017, serving all-vegan hearty comfort food, but they’ve been dog-friendly for years! Just check out their Instagram, which is 50% vegan burger porn, 50% cute doggo pics.

Below you’ll find a list of dog-friendly vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants, cafes and shops that I’ve personally visited with my dog and can verify are dog friendly (or at least were at the time of visit!). It’s always best to phone ahead just to be sure you can bring your dog, or have a backup place in mind. For ease, I’ve divided the restaurants by area of London.

Mildred’s (V)
A classic London vegetarian institution (get the vegan burger) and dog-friendly too, with locations in Soho, Kings Cross, Camden and Dalston. One of the first restaurants I took Benito to, because I was pretty much coaxed into it by Mildred’s staff who wanted to play with him! I had planned to get takeaway but after one member of staff spotted him, she practically begged me to sit down at a table and eat in so she could see more of Benito.

Tibits (V) – Outside Only
Dog-friendly outdoor seating area at the Heddon Street location near Piccadilly Circus. There are umbrellas and heaters so you can sit out here in all weather. However, since it’s a pay-by-weight buffet, you’ll need to leave your dog outside while you go in to choose and pay for your food; so, it’s best to go in a group and take turns getting food. Every Tuesday the entire food boat is vegan. Other days, there are plenty of vegan options and they are clearly labelled.

Kin Cafe (V)
This vegetarian cafe in Fitzrovia has the usual coffee shop fare of coffee, matcha lattes and tea, plus salads and a rotating menu of lunch specials. They are also dog friendly! Vegan brrunch can be hard to come by, even in the Big Smoke, so make sure to note that Kin also offer Saturday brunch, including vegan pancakes. Yum.

Le Pain Quotidien (VF) (dogs outside only)
This chain of vegan-friendly omni restaurants has a tonne of locations around London and they’re happy for dogs to sit at their outdoor tables (pretty much all locations seem to have outdoor seating). However, they don’t have heaters, so don’t go in winter. Vegan options are clearly marked on the menu and they’ve expanded their vegan offering in the last couple of years to include a pretty big range, including cakes.

Hidden behind the maze of office blocks and flats in the newly renovated area behind Kings Cross station is this gem. Skip Garden is a garden and community centre growing food out of converted skips. They offer classes for local kids plus workshops and events on gardening, and their attached vegetarian cafe sells fresh soups, salads and sandwiches with veggies grown from the skip garden. They usually have a couple of vegan options and it’s reasonably priced too (£5 for soup and bread), plus they’re dog-friendly.

Cheezelo (VF) (outside)
This European gourmet cheese shop might not sound like the most vegan friendly of places but French owner Eleonore makes her own vegan nut-based cheeses (see my review here). You can order a sharing platter for two people for £10, which comes with homemade vegan cheeses, pitta crackers (made in Hackney) plus fruit, and dogs are allowed on the patio seating outside. Or you can get some cheese to takeaway.

Feel Good Cafe (V+)
This all-vegan cafe in Chingford is slightly hard to find (it’s in a shopping centre) but is probably the only vegan place in E4. I went after a hike through Epping Forest and they were happy to refuel me and top up Benito’s water.

Sound Lounge (V)
A mostly vegan music and arts venue that recently moved from Tooting to Wimbledon. Make sure you check if there’s any live music on when you plan to go; most dogs’ ears don’t like loud music so you’ll want to find an alternate venue!

The Full Nelson (V)
This is the only place on the list I haven’t been to yet, but I’ve been assured it’s exceedingly dog-friendly by many people (plus their website and Instagram features dog photos where they proclaim their dog-friendliness!). An all-vegetarian bar in Deptford where everything can be veganised, including an extensive cocktail list, pub grub and fried pickles.

Piadina Genuina (V+)
Piadina specialises in Italian flatbread wraps (piadina) but don’t miss their homemade ravioli. It’ best to book a table at the weekend because it’s very busy. I was there without my dog but spotted some four-legged customers and when I rang them to double-check they were dog-friendly they got so excited about the prospect of dogs coming in, it was clear that these guys really love dogs!

After their first event where a few people complained about the no-dogs policy (and I got thrown out of the market for bringing a dog), Broadway Vegan Market changed their policy on dog attendance and they are now dog-friendly.

This doughnut shop and cafe is a must-visit for any doughnut lover; Dough Society’s fried brioche doughnuts topped my best doughnuts in London list. Plus, they’re now doing dog doughnuts so both you and your four-legged friend can enjoy a treat! Their Hackney cafe has plenty of tables and they sell coffee as well as more than a dozen varieties of doughnuts (but get there early in the day, before they sell out of doughnuts!). They also have vegan toasties for the savoury side. Check their Instagram to see what special flavours they have and if they’ve sold out of doughnuts.

You don’t have to leave Fido at home when you’re getting your hair done at this all-vegan hair salon. You can bring her along!

Not Dog Friendly

I’ve been really pleased by how dog friendly the vegan and vegetarian restaurants of London are! I’ve tried taking my dog into some non-veggie places when I was out and about with him and very few let him in, but the bulk of vegan places are dog-friendly. In fact, there are only two that I’ve come across so far that don’t allow dogs.

Fed by Water (no dogs allowed except assistance dogs)
This vegan pizzeria in Dalston does not allow dogs (although they seemed regretful when they told me no, so maybe it’s an issue with the landlord — it’s in a sort of shopping centre and sometimes these have regulations around dogs coming in). If you’re craving vegan pizza and want to bring your dog, head to Picky Wops instead.

Calthorpe Project (no dogs allowed except assistance dogs)
This is the only place I’ve had a truly bad experience. I went to a meetup here and a few of us had asked the organiser, who spoke to a volunteer at the venue, who said we could bring dogs. The cafe is set at the back of a park. As I tried to make my way to the cafe, I was chased out of the park by a woman who shouted at me for bringing my dog in. Although I tried to explain that there must have been a misunderstanding, she was exceedingly rude. It ended up working out, because the meetup organiser spoke to the (vegan) volunteer from the centre who’d helped co-organise the event, and they let us come in just this one time. But unfortunately the whole experience of the extremely rude woman shouting at us left a bad taste in my mouth, which is a shame because I like the mission of the Calthorpe Project…
