Where to Eat Vegan Foods in Bowral

Even if you aren’t vegan, these are the best places to enjoy a meat-free meal in Bowral.

If you’re visiting Bowral and your unsure where to eat if you’re vegan, there are so many great cafes and restaurants which serve both vegan and non-vegan foods to suit whatever your dietary needs are. And gluten-free too.

I have always said it it far easier being vegan than to be gluten-free. And although I am not entirely vegan, I am gluten-free. And I do struggle most of the times when eating out, to find places which serve food (apart from soup and salad) which is gluten-free.

Vegan on the other hand is pretty easy to track down, as it’s mostly plant-based (meaning lots of fresh vegetables).

Bowral has been an the forefront of culinary eats for a while now. Surrounded by amazing farmlands which produce some of the best foods in New South Wales – well I think so anyways.

This goes for both restaurants and cafes. So matter what type of adventure you’re planning for Bowral, there is something to cater for everyone.

However, for this blog I have opted to choose my top three cafes which cater for both vegan and non-vegan. But of course, most of the beautiful restaurants at night on the main drag through Bowral township do offer delicious hot veggie meals.

But I always find it’s the cafes when eating on the road or throughout the day where I struggle for the gluten free and vegan options. Hence, why I have opted to ficus on three cafes in Bowral who provide some great vegan and gluten-free options.

Bare – Bite Bowls and Brew

Bare Bite Bowls and Brew

This is a great option if you’re looking to grab some tasty vegan takeaway to go sit at a park and enjoy some sunshine. They do VEGAN only.

The entire menu is gluten-free and vegan and they do everything from Mexican inspired dishes to buddha bowls, all made with delicious fresh veggies and other yummy goodies. Including a wide-range of outstanding vegan desserts.

Low to average price range with meals starting at $10

The Mill Cafe

A very cosy cafe for both non-vegan and vegan, which trades long hours and serves great coffee all day long.

With a menu for any type of dietary needs, this cafe is the perfect choice if you’re stuck in that weird time where most cafes have closed and restaurants haven’t open yet to dine and you need food and coffee stat.

Open every day, starting with breakfast from 8am (sometimes earlier for coffee) and close late for food servings too.

The Press Shop

With European charm, this is the cafe you want for a more luxury cafe feel when dining out throughout the day in Bowral.

Though the cafe reminds of many of the great hot spot places to eat in London, this cafe though looks very European trendy in aesthetics, it’s all about Aussie cuisine, with great coffee and a yummy menu to match.

Average luxe cafe price range, with prices for meals starting at $18 for lunch.

Open everyday for breakfast from 7am Monday to Friday and from 8am on weekends. Kitchen does close at 2pm though. Though they still serve coffee and already prepared food in the fridges (like cake) until 4pm.
