The Best Vegan Hangouts in York

It’s nearly that time of year when thousands of people across the UK pledge to try Veganism throughout the month of January – more commonly known as Veganuary.  

York is home to some of the best plant-based hangouts, which are loved by dedicated vegans far and wide. In this blog, our boutique York hotel explores some of the very best (in our opinion).


Humpit – Hummus & Pita Bar


Hummus lover? Humpit is THE place to be. After not being able to find anywhere to eat the chickpea-based dish in traditional style, the owners decided to set up their own street market stall. As people started to fall in love with the food, the business grew and now has locations in Sheffield, Leeds and York (just around the corner from the Minster). We recommend trying the falafel with hummus for an explosion of flavour!

True Story

An independent, family-run vegan café in the heart of York, True Story is committed to creating nutritious and delicious plant-based dishes, made from organic produce. Aside from the food, the business often holds comedy and open mic nights, so you can enjoy your food with a side of entertainment. If you’ve got room for dessert (who doesn’t) definitely try their gooey vegan brownies!

Goji Café


A quirky little café, deli and takeaway within the city walls of York on Goodramgate, Goji Café is the perfect place for a bite to eat. Despite being a vegetarian café, much of the food they serve is dairy-free and suitable for vegans. Every day Chef Wendy cooks up an array of delicious comfort food, light bites and mouth-watering cakes! We’ve heard great things about their spicy cauliflower wings and banana, blueberry and almond loaf.

Double Dutch Pancake House

Everyone’s welcome at Double Dutch Pancake House! The cute little café which is located between York Minster and The Shambles has two menus, one which includes dairy and the other which is entirely vegan! With a selection of savoury and sweet pancakes, including; Mex, Italian, Caribbean, Belgian and Vegan Go Nuts. They even have Vegan Nutella!!!

Hotel Indigo York Reviews



A lovely hotel within walking distance to the centre of York. Very friendly, helpful staff on reception, bar area and dining room. The rooms were immaculately clean and well presented. The bed was absolutely huge and was extremely comfortable. The hotel has a modern, funky feel to it and was very welcoming. The breakfast was superb . Would definitely stay here again.



<p>Conveniently positioned within easy walking distance of the city and Minster. This was our third visit so obviously we’re fans. That said although the previous visits were excellent this time the stay was even better. On check in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a superior room as IHG elite members. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Large TV. Massive comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Complimentary snacks with fresh milk and the bonus of a Nespresso coffee machine complete with six “pods”. Decent sized bathroom which was clean and well stocked with quality toiletries. Breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Wide choice of hot and cold items. Plenty of quality juices and smoothies. Service excellent even when busy nothing seems rushed. Very highly recommended.</p>



Excellent hotel. Rooms very nice and extremely clean and quiet. Friendly staff both at reception and restaurant. Breakfast had fantastic choice. Location was really good lots of nice bars and restaurants just minutes away. Short walk to the Shambles and they offered parking just 2 minutes away for a small daily charge. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.


Perth, Australia

We have found that it’s the little things that make a huge difference when you’re travelling. They’ve nailed the little things here! You’re always warmly greeted when you pass reception. Comfortable bed, soft towels, immaculate room and free chocolate in the fridge! Breakfast is delicious and finally a coffee I enjoyed. Location is fabulous and parking was easy. Well done to the Team at Hotel Indigo.



We stayed at the Indigo for my birthday recently. It was very modern with quirky room features. The breakfast was world class - such a great variety of treats, including a good selection of gluten and dairy free food. The staff were very helpful and attentive.


Milton Keynes

Stayed for 2 nights, very good quality modern hotel with good sized rooms and breakfast. Cold buffet and hot food freshly cooked to order . Great location within a 5/10 minute walk of York center. Would highly recommend.



<p>My partner, daughter and I stayed for 3 nights on a city break in April 2018. The room was great, Fresh milk in the complimentary mini fridge, fantastic big bed, really really clean, excellent room service and thick black out curtains. The service was excellent from all the staff at all times - reception staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was also fantastic, so much choice on offer and again, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is really well located for the city. It was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again. Absolutely 10/10 all round.</p>


South Ayrshire

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area of York, but still within easy walking distance of the city centre / shambles walls etc. Lovely continental breakfast and a quiet bar area. Ideal if you want a bit of peace in a busy city.



Stayed one night in this hotel ,was very impressed. A warm welcome on arrival from the receptionist and the room was ready ahead of check in time. The room was lovely, very luxurious with lots of nice touche. Biscuits, chocolate and drinks in fridge. Very close to main town and York Minster. Had a lovely evening meal in the hotel restaurant, very reasonable priced and a nice breakfast in the morning before leaving. Would definitely stay here again.



Lovely hotel close to York centre and near all the main sites. Within 5 minutes walk to the Shambles. Excellent staff and facilities. On arrival complimentary mini treats in room due to it being my Birthday. Complimentary water and chocolate and biscuits in room together with tea making facilities. Made the 2 night stay in York most enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again and recommend.


Greater Manchester

We had a very pleasant stay on a Saturday night when visiting York. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Shambles and central York area. The staff were all good and friendly with good check in service and also in the bar. The breakfast choice and service was also very good. The room and the hotel was decorated very well. We stay here again if staying in York.
