Melbourne is a foodies paradise. Each time I visit, a new cafe or restaurant pops up that doesn't disappoint. They take coffee, food and cafe culture seriously here in Melbourne. Below are a few of my favourite cafes and restaurant for vegans/non-vegans alike. I was sure to include spots throughout the city, so wherever you may find yourself to be in Melbourne, a tasty vegan meal isn't far away!
2/242 Flinders Ln, Melbourne
I think it's safe to say this is my favourite vegan food spot in all of Melbourne. Located in the city, an unassuming sleek-modern space, you almost pass it by if you weren't to be paying attention. You can make a choice of smoothie, salads, grain bowls or smoothies for eat in or take-out. They update the menu often and are sourcing food locally from nearby farmers. They put a really unique Australian spin on some modern classics, for example, Peanut Butter & Miso Smoothies *it works, trust me* & housemate falafels served w Mejdra Lentils, Beet dip, roasted eggplant and wombok dill salad... YUM.
98 Chapel St, Windsor
Perfect for a night out dinner spot, Hawker Hall blends Singaporean & Malaysian food seamlessly together. Plenty of vegan options and delicious cocktails. Yummy dumplings, too! It is the sister restaurant of Chin Chin & Go Go so you know you're in for a tastebud treat!

19 Liverpool St
Tasty joint for hawker style Asian food. Good for dinner, veggie friendly!
72A Acland St
Now, I have listed cafe as I do hope there are redeeming elements to it. Unfortunately, our meal there was not so good. Could also be the 35+ degree day and no a/c we were melting!
I found the food bland and greasy, but placing it on here in hope that you may have a better experience.

228 Gertrude St., Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia
A little hole-in-the-wall easy to miss bakery in Fitzroy. Super old school vibe, you enter through plastic strip curtain doorway into a bustling, unpretentious little bakery. Laden w many vegan cakes, pastries and gluten free pizza and breads.
