You don’t have to miss out if you don’t eat meat. Here we've picked ten Cardiff spots where you can be guaranteed a tasty veggie or vegan burger - meat free but still damn delicious.

Big thanks to Sarah Philpott at Veggingit for this great round up!

The Grazing Shed

The Grazing Shed is famous for its fresh flavours and friendly staff and was shortlisted in last year’s Britain’s Best Burger competition. It’s not just for meat heads either: there are three vegetarian burgers (the Hell Fire Hippy is heavenly) as well as the Vegan Wah Wah, plus you can swap any of the meaty burger combos for a veggie version.

The Flora

When you think of classic pub grub, a meat-free burger might not immediately spring to mind, but this quirky little pub has something for vegetarians and vegans. It’s terrifically tasty, comes with a load of fries and costs only £7.00 – bargain!

Cafe Atma

We’re big fans of this friendly vegetarian café and we’re in good company as its new site was opened by rock legend, Chrissie Hynde. The burgers (there are six to choose from) are wholesome but huge so be prepared to waddle home afterwards.

Time & Beef

Don’t be fooled by the name: there are plenty of non-beefy burgers at this cool café bar, and once a week, on Meatless Mondays, the whole menu goes vegetarian and vegan. We love the pulled oyster burger with hickory BBQ sauce. There are some mean cocktails on the menu, too.

Anna Loka

This all-vegan restaurant is a big hit even with Cardiff’s carnivores and we think it’d be criminal not to try one of its banging burgers. The ultimate burger is just that: a red lentil and beetroot patty with TWO onion rings and all the trimmings plus some of the best chips in town.

Burger Theory

Get down to Kongs for some of the best burgers in Cardiff courtesy of Burger Theory. There are four veggie options on the menu and the Southern Hippie, a dreamy doubling of portabello mushroom and halloumi, can also be made vegan. If you get bored of eating (as if), you can play an arcade game or two.

It’s definitely Cardiff’s most innovative vegetarian restaurant and Milgi’s Thai sweet potato burger is no exception. It comes with a smooth satay sauce and is served with garlic roasted potatoes, green beans and chickpeas – refreshingly different.
