Done with dairy? Sick of sugar? Bored with beef? Well, worry not! There are plenty of places in Adelaide ready to whip you up a damn good meal, whatever your dietary leanings. From delicious veggies to raw delights, these places prove that eating healthy can taste pretty darn good.
“High vibe food with a conscience” is how Nettle Raw Cafe describes its output, and that sounds pretty accurate to us. It’s a colourful, artsy space dotted with comfy sofas and folksy artwork, and the food itself is extremely agreeable. Try the Vegan Reuben Club sandwich, with tempeh, lettuce, sauerkraut, onions, avocado, Dijon and sprouts on sourdough or house-made raw bread. It’s a hearty meal packed full of flavour and goodness.

Earth’s Kitchen isn’t 100% vegan, but all its food does have to pass the S.O.L.E test (sustainable, organic, local, ethical). That makes it a rustic little haven of tasty nourishment, known particularly for its pizzas. However, try as we might, we can rarely look past the yummy Zoodle Noodles. They’re made from zucchini, and come with avocado, salad and a lovely pesto dressing. Pure light lunch bliss.
“Best coffee in town, great crusty organic Pizza’s and healthy fruit smoothies. The food ranges from vegan options to sustainable kangaroo, raw or roasted salads to gf treats. Understandably this place is usually packed at lunch. Prices are reasonable for organic food and the staff are very friendly. Coupled with a sustainable organic shop this one is definitely worth a visit.” – Polly Polly
They do indeed love their vegetables at the charming Vego & Love’n It, and we can safely say that you will, too! The place kind of feels like someone’s cosily eccentric living room, brimming with plants, knickknacks and homemade charm. Our favourite spot is the table right beneath the ‘Bali Wall’ (see if you can find it), and we’d highly recommend the falafel wrap. It’s delicious, good for you, and we’re already wanting seconds!

It might sound like a long-forgotten Bond girl, but Cherry Darlings is actually an awesome vegan bakery that offers all the classics (croissants, pies, slices, cakes, milkshakes, sundaes, etc.) in fabulous cruelty-free form. The vegan donuts are fantastic, available in such varieties as Oreo Stuffed, Custard Berliners and Choco Mousse, and they hit the sweet spot just as well as (if not better than) any non-vegan alternative.

Eggless egg-cels in the vegan/lacto-vegetarian dessert department, with many items on the menu able to be customised depending on your dietary needs. The Queen of Puddings is an utter delight, made with vanilla sponge, vanilla bean custard, rhubarb compote, toasted almonds and torched meringue. Drool…
