Malaga is a beautiful city on the south coast of Spain with history seeping from its pores. So much so, that you only have to walk around the city for an hour to get an insight into its vast and rich past.
But, as it’s only the sixth most populous city in Spain and with Spain not being the most vegan-friendly of countries, I wasn’t expecting great things in regard to vegan food options in Malaga. But I’m very pleased to say….I was completely and utterly wrong.
Actually, I was so wrong and I can confidently say that during my four days in Malaga I didn’t have one single bad meal, however, I did devour many divine ones.
Vegan food in Malaga is all over the city!
So, if you’re looking for delicious vegan food in Malaga get ready because I’m about to share some of my favourites. And don’t worry they’re all great so whichever you choose you’ll be on to a winner.
Vegan Breakfast in Malaga
1. Tost – Malaga
First up is Tost, this is a great place to get fueled up for the day ahead. They sell really tasty topped toast and it’s so clear to see that their food is made with love and effort. At first, when our food arrived it didn’t look too big, but I was plenty full after I’d finished it because it was so full on flavour. A great way to set you up for a day of sightseeing.
2. El Último Mono Juice & Coffee – Malaga
Next is El Último Mono Juice & Coffee, they don’t seem to have much online saying they offer vegan food so we almost didn’t bother. But I’m so glad we gave it a try because I loved everything about this place. It’s super chilled out, so it’s great to relax and grab a coffee or some breakfast.
It’s also the perfect place to go if you need to catch up with some work on your laptop. The staff were kind and helpful, they even helped with our Spanish! We had an avocado wrap and a peanut butter, jam, and banana toasted sandwich, they sound simple but they tasted great!
3. The Market – Mercado Central de Atarazanas – Malaga
Of course, in a Spanish city, you should never forget the local market. If you’re looking for something light, healthy and quick then heading to Mercado Central de Atarazanas to pick up a fruit smoothie or some fresh local fruit is a great option. The strawberries were out of this world!

Vegan Lunch in Malaga
1. Las Muns
First on our list for vegan lunch in Malaga is Las Mans. And if you’re looking for a quick lunch on the go then Las Muns is for you! That’s because this place sells take-away empanadas to die for!
You can choose from two vegan empanadas, either a cheeseburger one or a veggie one with vegan bechamel, sweetcorn, and other tasty stuff. Even though they’re little they’re still quite filling.
Vegan Pancakes! Brunchit is incredible, going here felt like a real treat! We went for breakfast and felt pretty stuffed so I’d recommend going a little later in the day unless you’ve got a big appetite in the morning.
There were two of us, first, we shared the avocado toast and then the vegan pancakes. If you’re looking to indulge then do yourself a favour and head to Brunchit!
Lastly on the lunch list is Astrid, luckily we found this gem just before heading to the airport, and what a find it was!
We loved it because there are tons of vegan options on the menu and all are clearly labelled. As it was pretty warm and sunny, we went for a few of the lighter tapas-sized dishes and shared them. Everything that came out was so fresh and filled with flavour.
Vegan Dinner in Malaga
1. Andino Gastrobar
There are so many great places with great vegan food in Malaga so it’s hard to give away the top spot but Andino Gastrobar might just top the table for me.
Partly because the food was great and the flavours were so creative. But it was the place itself that I especially liked, the woman who worked there was very friendly and gave us recommendations.
While eating we sat out on a cute street and it almost felt like we were locals. When you’re a tourist and looking for vegan food it can be very hard to get the sense that you’re eating like the locals. But in this place I did, so for these reasons, I had a wonderful evening eating great food here!
2. Miss Sushi
After returning many, many times to Miss Sushi in Valencia I was delighted to find one in Malaga, even with the same vegan menu too!
Miss Sushi is the perfect sushi restaurant for vegans because it has so many choices. The decor is very elegant but the food isn’t too expensive and it offers a vegan menu. So you can both feel posh and eat tasty vegan sushi without breaking the bank!
3. Restaurante Mexicano Tulum
The final one is Restaurante Mexicano Tulum, which is a really interesting place. Although we’d seen online that they offered vegan food when we got there it wasn’t clear. But we decided to go ahead and give it a try.
Our burrito arrived with lots of salad and veg inside, but no beans, rice, or tofu type option. Because of this we kind of wanted to be disappointed but in truth, we weren’t. Somehow the flavours worked pretty well and we ate it all.
That’s it, my list of vegan food in Malaga, it seems we vegans are pretty spoiled for choice in this wonderful city. I’d happily go back to any of these places again without a doubt.
In addition, here are some restaurants that I wanted to try while I was in Malaga, but I didn’t get the chance. If you get a chance to check them out, please do, because I’d love to know what you think.
Oh and here’s a little tip … Double check the restaurant will actually be open because something I’ve noticed all around Spain is that opening hours are very much a casual guideline and sticking to them is optional. So, if there’s somewhere you really want to go just check by sending a quick Facebook or Instagram message.
Where to Stay in Malaga:
You’ve probably always got it sorted but just in case – if you’re looking for accommodation for your trip to Malaga we stayed in Soho Boutique Equitativa – It’s in the perfect location, with great rooms and spotlessly clean.
