Vego and Lovin’ It
This place has been around for more than a decade and has become an Adelaide institution among vegos and vegans. Tucked away upstairs off ever-trendy Rundle Street, the 100% vegan menu is as eclectic as the décor. The burgers are a must-try, but be warned, the servings are huge.

Two Bit Villains
Love Americana? Then it’s happy days for you at Two Bit Villains. Located upstairs in the beautiful Adelaide Arcade, TBV (as the cool kids call it) is a vegan soda/burger bar. Favourites include the “Long Arm of the Slaw” burger and the nachos man.
Tell me more: Two Bit Villains is located at Shop 150, Balcony Level, Adelaide Arcade (off Rundle Mall).
If you get peckish while stocking up at the Adelaide Central Market, pop next door to the Pure Vegetarian food stall in the Market Plaza Food Court. Their Taiwanese-inspired vegan food is great value, especially if you opt for the meal deal which includes a free soy drink.
Tell me more: Pure Vegetarian is located at Shop 8, Market Plaza Food Court, Moonta Street, Adelaide.
Red Lime Shack
Port Adelaide is being revitalised and you’ll feel revitalised after eating at Red Lime Shack. Their vegan menu is produced daily in-house although they do use BD Paris Creek milk in their coffees. Their waffles with banana ice-cream and berry coulis are amazing.
