Vegetarian Restaurants in Tbilisi
Georgia has come a long way since sausage-wielding conservatists crashed the opening of Tbilisi’s first vegan restaurant back in 2015. Vegan and vegetarian food in Tbilisi is becoming easier to find every year. Even if you don’t go to an exclusively vegetarian restaurant in Tbilisi, Georgian cuisine generally caters well to vegetarians. Dishes such as ajapsandali, khachapuri, and lobio don’t contain any meat. Here’s a list of our favourite vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Tbilisi:
Kiwi Vegan Café
Kiwi Vegan Café stands for progressive Georgia. ‘No place for speciesism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, racism, transphobia’ is written in multicoloured letters to the left of the door. The décor is simple but comfortable. The food is tasty but not spectacular. Entirely vegan, the menu comprises of falafel wraps, vegan curry, and 3 lari beer. The real draw of this place is its values. Kiwi Vegan Café is an inclusive place that helps the community. Both foreigners and locals over beers at language clubs held in the café and street dog and charity fundraisers and held regularly. It’s a restaurant with a heart. That’s why it’s one of our favourite vegetarian restaurants in Tbilisi.

You can only notice many of Café Gallery’s details in daylight. The popular stomping ground of Tbilisi’s house and techno lovers transforms during the day into a café. A colourful painted rug covers the floor while art hangs on every wall. The glass smoking room at the back is surprisingly inviting during the day. Although not explicitly vegetarian, Café gallery serves a full vegetarian menu and some of the tastiest vegetarian food in Tbilisi.
