Best Vegan Dessert in Prague – 2020

In Czech Republic, Europe, Prague, Vegan Travel by Randi Delano, Creator and Owner, Veggie Visa14 Comments

Prague was recently named the city with the most vegan restaurants per capita in Europe. That means not only can you finding marvelous vegan food in Prague for any meal and plenty of vegan shopping options, but you can also find magnificent vegan desserts all over the city.

Sinking your teeth into superb vegan cakes, donuts, ice cream, and even raw desserts are all possible in Prague!

I recently started a Youtube Series to showcase some of my favorite vegan finds around Prague. Below is the latest video. Here is the full playlist.

Before we dive in…here are a few other articles about the vegan scene in Prague and the Czech Republic:

Here are my favorite spots for the best vegan desserts in Prague.

Moment Vegan Cafe & Bistro – The Best Vegan Cafe in Prague

Moment Cafe, Prague, Czech Republic

It’s not a coincidence that  Moment Vegan Cafe & Bistro tops the list of places for vegan dessert in Prague.

Moment has a savory food menu that includes tasty burgers, breakfast bagels, falafel, soups, and sandwiches but their vegan dessert are where they really shine. I could write an article solely devoted to how much I love their desserts..seriously, they are that good.

When you go, look for the dessert cup (a whipped “cream” and chocolate cake layered dessert in a cup), the chocolate banana cream cake, or the banana bread. Passing any of them up would be, in my opinion, a mistake.

Forrest Bistro – Excellent Vegan Desserts in Prague

Forrest Bistro Pistachio Vegan Cake Prague

Forrest Bistro opened in 2017 and since then has been one of my favorite vegan restaurants in Prague. Not only do they have superb daily lunch specials with veganized Czech and Asian food, but they also have stellar vegan cakes.

The vegan desserts at Forrest Bistro in Prague include moist cakes, sweet cookies, delicate French macaroons, and thick and creamy puddings.

Their tempting daily selection is on display at the counter where you pay, so if you’re on a diet and don’t have a lot of self control you might want to wear blinders. But really, what’s life without a few extra glutenous calories every now and then?

For some of the best vegan desserts in Prague, head straight to Forrest Bistro.

Donut Shop Prague – The Best Vegan Donuts in Prague

Donut Shop in Prague

DONUT SHOP HAS REOPENED AT THEIR LOCATION NEAR IP PAVLOVA! CHECK IT OUT IN THIS VIDEO (SKIP TO 2:46 IF YOU’RE ONLY INTERESTED IN SEEING THE NEW DONUT SHOP)

I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. I even told a friend I felt like it was coming very soon. And now it’s here.

Vegan donuts have arrived in Prague!

Donut Shop Prague serves 6-8 different types of vegan donuts and donut holes daily. The dough is light and fluffy, and the toppings are sweet and seductive. I’m absolutely in love with this place!

If you’re in or near IP Pavlova make sure you pop in to see what they have on offer. Grab a few (and some coffee) to take away, and head to one of the nearby park benches on a sunny morning for a sinfully sweet breakfast picnic.

Oh and while you’re at it, can you pick up a few for me too? My favorite flavors are the coconut pandan, red chai, caramel cookie, lemon brownie, and chocolate topped with rosemary, orange, and pistachio.

Blue Vegan Pig Shop

Blue Vegan Pig Shop

Blue Vegan Pig Shop is an all vegan donut shop in the Vršovice neighborhood of Prague. They create a very different kind of donut than the aforementioned shop. These donuts are uber fluffy and come in a wide variety of flavors. 

Most donuts are cream filled topped with sweetly flavored icing. This is where they really shine! The Pistachio donut is stuffed with decadent sweet cream and topped with bright green icing. Topped with three salty crunchy pistachio nuts for a contrasting flavor makes for a well balanced flavor experience. The Crème brûlée donut lives up to the name. Topped with burnt sugar icing and stuffed with creamy vanilla custard, it smacks of the original French masterpiece.

The downside of Blue Pig is its opening hours. If you are craving a donut for breakfast, you’re out of luck. They don’t open till noon!

Creme de la Creme – The Best Vegan Ice Cream in Prague (and Maybe the World)

best vegan ice cream in prague creme de la creme

Seriously, this is the best vegan ice cream I’ve ever had in my life. Full stop!

With four locations in Prague, including Old Town Prague, New Town, and Vinohrady, Creme de la Creme serves Italian gelato and offers vegan options. I’m not talking about sorbet either, they have legit vegan ice cream. Flavors include salted peanut, pistachio, dark chocolate, and walnut.They even have vegan cones.

Lines tend to be long at the Old Town and New Town locations, but it’s well worth the wait.

The vegan ice cream flavors weren’t on display in the Old Town location the last time I visited, so ask a friendly staff member what the daily options are. If salted peanut is on the menu, don’t pass it up. It’s ooey-gooey-creamy-good!

SLOW Cafe

SLOW Cafe - Vegetarian Cafe in Prague

SLOW Cafe is a vegetarian specialty coffee and brunch bar with a cozy and relaxed vibe and usually at least two vegan sweets on offer daily.

Slow Cafe Vegan Cake in Prague

They also have a couple of vegan brunch items on the menu that changes weekly. I’d suggest the vegan pancakes if they’re available or any of their veganzed Czech dessert from the case.

What I love about Slow Cafe, aside from the delicious coffee and cakes, is the fact that they have recently started selling plants from their shop. So, it’s now a bit of a jungle in there, which means the vibe is very relaxed.

Mama Coffee

Vegan Cake from Mama Coffee in Prague

For excellent, Prague brewed coffee and a few vegan dessert options head to any one of the Mama Coffee shops in Prague.

Some of their sweets change depending on the season. For example, my absolute favorite is the vegan poppy seed koláček but it’s rarely available. They also usually have mini cinnamon rolls, but sometimes they have pumpkin cream filled cinnamon rolls that are 10x better. There are, however, two staples that they usually have, unless they run out. This is the banana bread, and chocolate bábovička (shown above). Both are really great options if they are fresh. Unfortunately they do tend to dry out a bit if they’ve been around for a while.

Mama is a great option if you want to head somewhere that isn’t 100% vegan but is almost guaranteed to have some kind of vegan sweet.

Coffee Room – Stellar Coffee and Vegan Cakes in Prague

Vegan Desserts at Coffee Room in Prague

Coffee room is a vegetarian and vegan coffee shop in Vinohrady. They serve delicious coffee from roasters in Berlin and Amsterdam, and have a nice selection of vegan cakes, bowls, and sandwiches.

There are usually vegan options from Mercy bakery (excellent vegan whole seller) and their coffee is always of the highest quality. On my last visit there were four vegan options.

Bonus, the cafe is really cute and each table is adorned with sweet little cactus plants.

Sweet Secret of Raw – The Best Raw Vegan Desserts in Prague

Sweet Secret of Raw, Prague

As the name implies, all of the desserts at Sweet Secret of Raw are raw.

They offer a daily selection of cakes, smoothies, shakes, ice cream, and even cocktails. My favorites slices of dessert here are the peanut butter chocolate cake, pistachio cake, and chocolate maca cake.

Sweet Secret of Raw Vegan Peanut butter Chocolate Dessert

Sweet Secret of Raw has delightfully quaint atmosphere and is a great place to catch up with friends over dessert and coffee.

Restaurant Plevel

IMG_0381 (2)

Plevel Restaurant has a full menu offering raw and vegan food, a daily selection of vegan desserts, and tasty beer, wine and cocktails.

Vegan Oreo Cupcake Prague

Although the restaurant can get very busy during peak times, it’s a great place spend a few hours reading a book, nibbling on dessert, and sipping coffee on off hours.

The vegan dessert selection is constantly changing but make sure you try the Oreo Cupcake if they have it.

Vegan Restaurants in Prague

Conductor

Vegan cinnamon rolls from Conductor in Prague

Conductor is a tiny, mostly takeaway, restaurant with an equally tiny menu. The restaurant serves sandwiches and wraps and also have some daily specials which are usually vegan and usually Asian or Caribbean inspired.

So, anyway on to the reason Conductor made it to this article about the best vegan desserts in Prague!

Conductor only has one vegan dessert, vegan cinnamon rolls, but it’s totally worth visiting just to try them. They’re ooey-gooey-soft, fluffy, and sweet. The perfect answer to a mid-day energy crash, especially if you pair it with some of their stellar coffee!

Just note, the restaurant is tiny. There aren’t tables but you can grab a spot at the counter or take the rolls away to gobble up in the privacy of a near-by park.

Loving Hut in Prague

Loving Hut Vegan Dessert

Loving Hut, my favorite vegan buffet chain, also has desserts.

They have a small, but nice selection to choose from and the best thing about them (aside from how good they are) is that they are cheap! The dessert above cost less than $2.00. The worst thing about Loving Hut desserts is that I’m usually too full from loading up at the buffet to eat them.

For the best and biggest selection of vegan desserts visit the Na Poříčí location which is conveniently located above an all vegan grocery store, World Vegan.

Angelato – Vegan Sorbet in Prague

Vegan Sorbet, Prague

Angelato is a gelato shop located in Prague’s historic center. It’s been open since 2007 and offers a variety of vegan sorbet flavors that change on a monthly basis (check their website for current offers).

The servers are knowledgeable about the ingredients so just ask if the flavor you desire is vegan or not. I highly recommend trying the mango sorbet. It’s sweet, tangy, and exotically delicious.

NOTE: The above list of places to get vegan desserts in Prague reflects my personal favorites. Here are a few other establishments that offer at least one vegan dessert on the menu. If you know of others, please leave a comment below so I can add them to this list.

The Best Vegan Friendly Hotel in Prague

vegan friendly hostel in Prague

Sophie’s Hostel in Prague is a great choice for vegan travelers. This lovely hostel is located about 10 minutes from the city center, has 14 dorm rooms, 6 private rooms, a small garden, and an onsite cafe and bar.

The best part of staying at Sophie’s Hostel is their massive brunch. Just let them know you’re vegan and they’ll do everything they can to accommodate you, including prepare soy milk porridge, and hot roasted veggies.

Their friendly wait staff will be happy to walk you through the entire buffet to point out the vegan options. Not sure about the bread? Just ask, they’ll be happy to let you know what’s vegan and what’s not.

Sophie’s Hostel also has a beautiful small 16 room boutique hotel called Miss Sophie’s that’s located directly across the street in case you fancy more, err fancy accommodations.

  1. Thank you! Any idea where to buy vegan bread in Prague, is there a vegan bakery or any other place that sells bread that is confirmed to be vegan?

    1. Author

      Hey Tarma, you could try the Country Life stores. They have an entire section of breads and baked items. Ask them which ones are vegan. Also, there is a shop on Londynska Street (sorry can’t remember the name of it) between Mama Coffee and Loving hut that has vegan breads. Just ask the clerk and they can help you. 🙂

  2. Thanks for al the recommendations!
    Unfortunately the ice cream of Creme de la Creme was a huge disappointment. They might have changed their recipe. No idea. But it was so gummy and very very heavy in my stomach. I couldn’t finish it. But of course I will try all the other ideas as well. ?

  3. Amazing post! I am travelling next week to Prag and will definitely try some vegan dessert! I wonder if you know if there is a place for vegan trdelnik? I would like to try it but can’t find any shops in prag. Thank you!

      Hey Dani, So glad the post is helpful! 🙂 I hope you have a fabulous time in Prague!

      I have never looked for vegan trdelnik because I had it before going vegan and thought was pretty horrible. Also, it’s not even Czech. So I have no desire to try a veganized version of it. Too many great desserts in Prague to waste calories on that. 😉

  4. Mercy has closed now, as far as I know – the owner will keep baking for other cafés, but not operating her own.

    Donut shop and Coffee room have the same owner, and I am proud to say he’s my classmate from uni! 🙂 Very proud of him indeed!

  5. Hey 🙂 is there anywhere to get vegan chimney cakes or Czech little pancakes? thank you in advance!

    1. Author

      HI Jodie, I hear that there is a place near Charles Bridge called Sweet Dreams that sells vegan trdelnik. I’ve had the pancakes you are talking about at Moment before. I’m not sure if they are still on the breakfast menu but when they were, they were delicious!! 🙂
