TOET – €€ – This place has two location. One where you’ll find the best vegan pancakes in Groningen and one with more then a dozen different cakes.

Kult – € – I’m getting hungry only by thinking of this place. It’s one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten. Not because it’s fancy or whatsoever, but because it’s super low key, with many speciality beers, and vegan food. I loooove their vegan nut fondue.

Stichting De Nieuwe Weg – €€€ – Maybe a little random, but this is a organic supermarket run as a non profit organisation. You’ll find everything for a healthy dish here.

Griekse Taverna Doris – €€ – This Greek restaurant has almost everything also in a vegan option. I love it!

Pure Groningen – € – Coffee bar where you’ll find loads of sweets, including vegan cookies.

Het Bakkerscafé – € – This is a lunchroom that bakes its own bread. You can order any dish and get as much bread as you want with it. I love their concept, but be prepared of a carbohydrates dip afterwards… 😉

Broodje Van Eigen Deeg – €€ – This is a bakery that makes you feel in like in France. Their bread is just so good. When it’s sunny you can get a bread to go and sit at the canal nearby.

Mr. Dam – € – I love these bahn mis! It’s the perfect snack for on the go or as a guilty pleasure during the weekend.

Pernikkel – € – This restaurant and lunchrooms serves fresh meals every day. I love the vegan burger!

Friet van Piet – € – This snack bar has so many organic, vegetarian and vegan options. They even have a vegan kapsalon, very very Dutch, but worth a try.

Rima Tofu – € – This Indonesian place has all food to go, so it’s perfect for those lazy Sundays, where you don’t feel like cooking. And they have so many vegan options. I always take the vegetarian (vegan) menu with white rice, tempeh, sambal buncis, belgian sprouts and other seasonal vegetables. This menu is more than enough for two.

De Groene Stoel – € – This is a social place, as they work closely together wit refugees to help them feel at home in The Netherlands. They have many vegan options, such as bowls, breads and cakes.
