A couple of vegan restaurants to try out during your stay in Prague
FORKYS – Old Town Prague
Located close to the historic Old Town Square in Prague, Forkys is a vegan bistro with international recipes, serving breakfast until 11 am, then burgers, kebab, hot dogs, bowls, and a daily menu. This is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat, with great energy to boot. I loved the wall at the entrance that lists all the famous people who have been vegan, dating from ancient Rome to the present day.
The restaurant space itself is light and airy with plenty of seating. We liked this place so much we actually went twice during our stay in Prague as it is centrally located. Both times the restaurant was bustling with young people, which created a buzz and was very encouraging to see for an old-timer like myself hoping for a revolution in veganism.
The food itself was fairly basic, but tasty and good value for money. We were in need of comfort food so we decided to try out the Forky’s burger and their Not Dog, based on a soy-based sausage. They were truly hearty meals – but nothing fancy.

VEGAN’S PRAGUE – Close to Prague Castle
Vegan’s Prague is found in a 16th-century building near Prague Castle on Nerudova street. It is a narrow building with the restaurant located on the first and second floors (second and third floors for my American friends), which are accessed with a steep and winding staircase. There is no elevator so disabled access is almost impossible.
Our favourite areas in the restaurant were the top floor, with its sloping roof, and from there the terrace which has a spectacular view across to Prague Castle.
The top floor room has exposed beams with simple furnishings and gets ample light from the numerous skylights that have been put into the roof.
The outdoor terrace is simply the best place to be. It is small and intimate, with only about four tables, so you will have to be lucky to get a table there.

Vegan’s makes home-style Czech and international cuisine, such as goulash, raw chocolate cake, tomato bruschetta, soy latte, zucchini lasagna, and cabbage rolls. We actually visited this restaurant twice, the first time we tried the more traditional Czech food – a delicious vegan goulash and a tasty dish of Svíčková with dumplings.
For our second visit to Vegan’s, we opted for westernised dishes, this time selecting the GF Burger, an open gluten-free burger, gratin potatoes, tomato, caramelized onion, rocket, tofu, carrots and the sweet potatoes filled with guacamole.
Although we were feeling fairly full from our main course we were tempted by the dessert menu, going with the cheesecake and apple pie. Delicious!
