Brought to you by Fry’s







For those new to a plant-based lifestyle, here is a list of vegan-friendly eateries in the capital city, Pretoria. 

Lexi’s Healthy Eatery (Hazelwood)

Lexi’s, in “The Village”, has established itself as a jewel in the crown of vegan-friendly restaurants in Pretoria. The group has a growing network of branches, which currently includes five across Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town. Lexi’s has  a relaxed, café-styled atmosphere with a wide selection of smoothies, juices, breakfasts, burgers, wraps, sandwiches and bowl meals. The menu is unapologetically plant-based with many delicious offerings from savoury to sweet.

Capital Craft (Greenlyn Village Centre)

If you’re in the mood for beer and a burger, then try out Capital Craft. Their impressive selection of the best craft beers is complemented with a selection of three top plant-based burgers and sides. This venue can help to ease even the toughest crowd into the plant-based fold. Select from three distinct burger choices: the plant-based Beyond Burger, the chickpea-based falafel patty or their incredible mushroom burger.

Geet (Brooklyn)

You cannot go wrong if you order one of the vegetarian or plant-based dishes from the menu at Geet. The restaurant serves meat but many vegan options are also available. Please check with the kitchen since ghee (clarified butter)  is often used in the preparation of Indian cuisine. Special substitutions may be possible.

Fragrant Egyptian food with many vegan dips, wraps, snacks, falafel and platters available. Compose your own vegan platter from the authentic selections available on the menu. Note that while they serve meat, vegan options are available too.

Asher’s Farm Sanctuary (Boschkop)

This farm animal rescue sanctuary on a small holding in Boschkop opens its doors to the public on the weekend. You can book a free tour of the sanctuary and order some food from the restaurant. The menu is limited, but you can get a selection of toasted sandwiches, burgers and desserts from the restaurant. You can even shop for vegan merchandise and goods from their shop. The Beyond Meat burger patty comes recommended. You can also choose to sponsor some of the animals living on the farm.
