Feeling left out because you’re veggie? Do you crave a vegetarian meal that is not a boring add on to a menu?
The Cardiffian gives its top 5 vegetarian friendly restaurants in Cardiff for you to enjoy.

1. Milgi
Address: 213 City Road, Roath, Cardiff, CF24 3JD
The restaurant was created in 2006 but converted to a completely vegetarian menu in 2010. The food is all freshly made in house and no two visits are the same as the menu is designed around the season’s harvests. With an ever changing menu of soups, mains and desserts and a charmingly bohemian atmosphere, Milgi is the perfect spot for grabbing a light lunch or an evening meal. They also make delicious smoothies to give you an extra boost of energy.

2. Vegetarian Food Studio
Address: 109 Penarth Road, Grangetown , Cardiff, CF11 6JT
Sit in or take away, Vegetarian Food Studio makes authentic Indian food to spice up your tastebuds. Large portions for a very reasonable price, the curries and sides are better than most take aways. The added bonus for vegetarians of being able to eat anything on the menu, which means the only negative aspect is trying to decide what to eat.
3. Caffi Bar, Chapter
Address: Market Road, Canton, Cardiff, CF5 1QE
Located in Chapter Arts Centre, Caffi Bar is very popular with locals, vegetarians and BBC actors. Although they do serve meat, the focus seems to be on vegetarian food with interesting dishes designed without meat. The vegetarian breakfast, served in the morning, is probably the best veggie breakfast in Cardiff. The atmosphere inside the building is relaxed and indie and is great for families, workers on lunch break or a group of friends wanting a catch up. Afterwards you can always check out the chapter cinema to see what is playing.
