Vegetarian and green food in Leeds

Where to go if you want a vegetarian meal out, or you want to buy green food and cook at home

By Rob Martin

Leeds has some truly great restaurants catering for all sorts of different tatstes. Now more than ever before there are alternatives to standard fayre and more people are opting for veggie food. Did you know that we Brits eat almost double the world average of meat? That's a staggering 1 billion chickens a year. Ethical questions abound, but so do health related ones, so here's our guide to some of the best veggie restaurants and cafes in Leeds, and where to go to buy green food to eat at home.

Kith & Kin

Restaurants Vegetarian

Locally sourced ingredients are nothing new but at Kith & Kin, which has just replaced the space vacated by the Zed Bar in Chapel Allerton, they’ve taken things a step farther. Local allotment holders and “windowsill growers’ have teamed up with the restaurant – open for breakfast, lunch and dinner – to offer their super fresh produce, in return for which they get food and drink on the house. They also whip up a mean cocktail.
