Top 6 Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Metro Cebu

The rise of veganism has been stronger than ever. 

A lot of people made the switch, especially since the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020 when people were trying out new things to improve their health and lifestyle, some of which spent their time in isolation to research different topics, and this one definitely takes one of the top spots.

Albeit not a new concept, veganism received a larger following not only because of the people’s necessity to prioritize their health in a way they see perfectly fit with their goals but also because of certain causes like ending animal cruelty and having a fair contribution to environmental wellness.

Of course, this also trickled down to the Filipino mainstream, and gladly enough, the market demand has allowed for local shops to open that purely cater to vegans. If you are one, you can take a break from having to prepare your meals every single day now because we are listing the top 6 pure vegan restaurants in metro Cebu.

1. Vegan Island Restaurant

If you grew up Filipino, then you already know how meat is always the heart of most of our local dishes. It’s a hard compromise to have to let go of this to sustain yourself with something that is in line with your principles and diet and, at the same time, something that is easy and affordable to make. You don’t have to make that compromise anymore with Vegan Island Restaurant.

Vegan Island Restaurant is an excellent option for a vegan shop since it serves different kinds of Filipino dishes that are 100% vegan. Missing sisig?

2. Eden’s Vegan Food Hub

Some people say that they want to try at least being vegan to see if they want to commit to it, but the journey often ends quicker than expected and before they even see what it’s truly like because of accessibility and affordability issues. Giving people the option to solve these problems, Eden’s Vegan Food Hub is very much here, and it serves food for as low as Php 99.

Their silog-style menu is definitely a delight to see. Offering rice meals, you can avail of their vegan barbecue, vegan beef steak, vegan beef curry, and a lot more. This lineup is definitely scrumptious and nostalgic, and the best part of it is that you can get your meal for less than a hundred. This is vegan heaven.

It has standalone dishes, but you may also opt for rice meals here as well as noodle dishes. They serve Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino dishes, so you’ll surely pick something here that’ll satisfy your palate.

4. La Veggie 

La Veggie stands out through its full-packed meals. They have estimated calories for each meal – some they recommend for the needed calories for dinner and for lunch, respectively.

They have a different menu depending on the day they’re open, but each meal is a set that will both fill your stomach and blow your mind. An example of this is their Meal 1 and Meal 2 options, the first one being Syama Pasta with three kinds of mushrooms, roasted veggies, soy and nuts, and the second being a half cup rice with breaded tofu topped with a homemade Italian-inspired tomato and herbs sauce. Each day, they introduce a new set of meals, every single one of them surprising consumers with delight and satisfaction.


5. Vegan Cebu City

Your meat-eating friends have a plethora of options if they want to eat a buffet – 99% of the buffets we have are for them! While other buffets still try to incorporate vegan dishes to be more inclusive, it’s still a milestone to have an entirely vegan buffet in the city. Vegan Cebu City is where you can feast on your favorite vegan food for as low as Php 349.

For their main course and appetizer, they have vegan sinugba, vegan lumpia, jackfruit salad, and mushroom sisig. Pair all of these with their monggo spinach and rice, and you’re truly set for the whole day (maybe even beyond that). To wrap up your meal, have a taste of their vegan chocolate moist cake and lemongrass juice! And the best part is they have a take-out option for the buffet, only for Php 389. It truly cannot get better than that.


6. The Green Canteen

We’ve truly come a long way in making sure that local vegans can access and afford their own diet. The Green Canteen offers whole meals for only Php 100!

They offer weekly meal plans on their menu, and this includes a vegan humba and sari-sari / vegan beef curry and bean sprouts combo. For their Tuesday plan, they offer vegan kebabs and pancit / sweet chili tofu and kangkong. The list could go on and on, but every meal set they offer is truly delicious and more importantly, not too hard on the pocket.

Don’t miss out on The Green Canteen!


After being on the fringes for quite some time, it’s wonderful to see local businesses responding to the market of veganism. This makes it easier for people to exercise their choices and preferences, and it’s even better to see how the status quo is adapting to it, especially when the relevant causes veganism stands for are also being forwarded as an extension. Here’s to Cebuano vegans!
