The number of vegan friendly shops has been increasing a lot in Las Palmas since 2020. There are many options for restaurants and quick bites, but in this article I will focus on places where you can treat yourself with some vegan desserts for takeaway (para llevar) or eating on the spot (para tomar aquí).
People choose to be vegan for many reasons and what’s classically avoided in the vegan diet are meat and dairy products. Some people prefer to avoid also all those products that are related in any way with animals, like honey for instance, so when ordering your meal make sure to read the ingredient list because a vegan dish might still contain something that for you might not be ethically right.
That said, here are some quite known options in Las Palmas for those who have a sweet tooth:
