The Netherlands is probably one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly countries in Europe, with a culture of healthy bike riding and a very simplistic lifestyle that has strong elements of minimalism and finding value in family and community.
It’s one of my favourite places to visit when I have a little break, not only because my sister lives there (hello free accommodation) but also because it’s a place which always seems to calm me and makes me feel very much at home. In the beautiful city of Utrecht only 20 minutes out of Amsterdam, are some of the cutest and friendliest vegan restaurants tucked in cosy spots by the quintessential Dutch canals.
Some of the best vegan restaurants in Utrecht include:
Located right by the canals, a little walk out of the city centre, Broei has a comfortable homely vibe, with couches in the outside seating area, and green foliage dangling from the ceilings. The area is quiet since it’s not in the middle of the city so it’s perfect for a chilled hangout or a meeting.
The staff are super friendly, they’ve got a bakery where they bake their own sourdough bread and their menu features a fun mix of cooked and raw vegan options.

This restaurant chain also does food to go and deliveries of their seasonal menus. My favourite piece on the menu was their pancakes with bananas and blueberry compote but they also do some delicious salads and their display of cakes as you walk into the restaurant is very hard to resist!

SLA is probably one of my favourite places to eat because they have restaurants all over the city and they do deliveries! I’m a massive fan of their falafel and anything that involved sweet potatoes. I also love their tofu green Thai curry, especially in the cold autumnal/winter time.
They do some delicious fresh juices and their portions of food are massive so it’s sure to fill you up! The ambience is very fun, their message is very sustainable and their staff are always super friendly.
