Gold Coast Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants

Gold Coast Vegan cafe / Gold Coast Vegetarian Restaurants

20‐12‐11 - reviewed by Vicki (4220 team)

It's not all veges and tofu. The Gold Coast has an amazing selection of vegetarian and vegan restaurants with savoury and sweet food that will blow you away. Even your meat loving man and little sweet eating kiddies will love their vego food.

We recommend you try these delicious 8 Gold Coast vego restaurants / cafes. Fresh delicious food that unless you were told you otherwise would not realise that their meals did not contain meat, dairy, gluten etc.

1. The Cardamom Pod (vegetarian restaurant - vegan and gluten free options)...

Shop 11/110 Surf Parade, Broadbeach

The Cardamom Pod is originally from Byron Bay (they still have one in Byron so look out for it next time you visit). It is a gourmet vegetarian restaurant using organic produce as much as possible with gluten free options. Vegan platters, fresh fancy salads, hot dishes, tea bar, mocktails, fresh fruit lassies, and house-made desserts.

The decor is SUPER funky. Walls of plants, designer chairs, very trendy. Perfect for a catch up lunch or afternoon tea.

You'll find The Cardamom Pod diagonally opposite the park in Broadbeach on Surf Parade.

2. From Earth & Water (vego cafe with 100% raw, vegan and gluten free options)...

Shop 6, 30 James St, Burleigh Heads

From Earth & Water is a hidden gem in Burleigh Heads - just behind Globe coffee up the lane. The decor is rustic and casual.

They have 100% raw, vegan and organic cuisine!  Everything at From Earth and Water is made by hand.  The menu is free of dairy, refined sugar, gluten, soy, wheat, processed ingredients and animal products with the exception of raw organic honey.

3. Mandala Organic Arts Cafe (vegetarian restaurant - vegan and gluten free options)...

2558, Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach (near Pacific Fair, Broadbeach)

Mandala Organic Arts Cafe offers nourishing meals, live music, art gallery, community events and workshops.  The food is prepared with fresh produce from its own garden (awesome!) and local organic farmers. The menu offers amazing vegan pizza, mouth watering raw chocolate and raw desserts, probiotic drinks, juices, elixirs, organic coffee, and teas. 

The decor is casual, artsy, very relaxed. It's a great place to catch up with your friends.

4. Easy House (Vegetarian yum cha restaurant - vegan / vegetarian Chinese food)...

Corner Markeri St and Sunshine Blvd, Mermaid Beach

Easy House Vegetarian restaurant is a great little place with good prices and service.  A fantastic, quick and delicious lunch time Yum Cha.  This is not your typical yum cha restaurant. Although the menu sounds familiar to diners, it’s both a vegetarian and vegan restaurant (no dairy, no eggs) and most of the dumplings are gluten free.

5. Govindas (Vegetarian restaurant / cafe)...

20 James St, Burleigh Heads

Govindas is perfect if you’re on the run and want to grab a take out dinner... or want to sit, chill in the cosy cafe.  Choose from a huge variety of hot dishes eg. vege lasagne, dahl, curry, pakoras to amazing fresh bean and kofta salads to mouth watering desserts.

Govindas restaurant is managed by volunteers who live on the Hare Krishna Community at Eungella. The proceeds from the restaurant help maintain the infrastructure for the agriculture on the farm and finance the protection of the cows and bullocks.

7. Tian Ran (vegetarian and vegan Chinese/Asian restaurant)...

Shop 8, 2464 Gold Coast Hwy, Mermaid Beach

All dishes are prepared fresh daily with only high quality, ecologically and socially responsible ingredients. Imagination and a variety of flavours and dishes makes this restaurant a place not to be missed for dinner.

8. Wray Organic Palm Beach (Shop and cafe with vegan, gluten free options)...

19th Ave Shopping Village, Palm Beach

In 2005, fed up with health stores selling overpriced organic produce wilting on the shelves, health guru Deborah Wray opened her flagship, one-stop, ACO-certified organic grocery shop in Palm Beach. Loyal patrons (including pro surfers like Kelly Slater) drop by for chats about current health concerns, charmed by small store service and hearty organic meals, juices and coffees in the cafe. Vegan, gluten and dairy intolerant customers are well-catered for too.

9. Woodbox Cafe at Burleigh (vegetarian cafe with organic and gluten free options)

33 Tallebudgera Creek Rd, West Burleigh

Sourcing as much organic produce as possible from local suppliers, Woodbox café specialises in organic and vegan options, free of preservatives, sugar, wheat, dairy and gluten. A glass-fronted cabinet on entry shows off the wonderful food: olive tart, macadamia and quinoa tart with salad, curry slices, organic sausage rolls, wraps, lentil and salad burgers, raw cakes and more.
