6 vegan cafes in Shanghai

It's never been easier to find vegan food in Shanghai today. Whether you are a flexitarian, vegetarian or vegan, you can spot various vegetable dishes and diverse Tofus all over the city. But how about vegan coffee? Although the trendy coffee shop's number has boosted to over 3000 over the last decade (SmartShanghai, 2018), you may also have run into a cafe without a coffee machine. Not just me, right? Not to mention a vegan-friendly cafe, many cafes don't have a single idea about it.


It's not easy to have a complete idea of how many cafes have oat or soy milk options. However, we managed to list six quality vegan-friendly cafes spreading out the town. Well, if you cannot find a vegan cafe nearby, you can always pop in Starbucks and get the soy milk alternative.
