Keeping these people’s preferences in mind, Bangalore has come up with several restaurants and cafes that serve exotic vegan delicacies to quench the palette of vegetarians and those planning to make a shift in their daily food consumption. While some of these restaurants and cafes are independent ventures, some are located within the esteemed hotels in Bangalore.
As a vegan, it’s difficult for me to find appropriate food in new cities. So while searching for Pune to Bangalore flights, I did conduct thorough research on the food that I was about to have for the next few weeks. And happened to find out some of the best vegan restaurants and cafes in Bangalore. On my trip, I did visit some of these cafes and restaurants and had a lip-smacking experience over lunch and dinner.

Providing a variety of Indian vegetarian dishes along with some gourmet continental ones, this restaurant is a perfect place to satiate all your vegan cravings.
