One Day in Stavanger

There is actually quite a lot of vegan friendly places in Stavanger. But if you're new to town, or new to veganism, it may be tricky to find where the hot spots are. Luckily for you we made a list of our favourite vegan friendly places. Enjoy!


go for brunch at


Ostehuset is one of our fave vegan spots in Stavanger because it is central, has a relaxed vibe, lovely staff, and some great options for vegans! Option include the avocado toast, hummus sandwiches, mexican salad, cauliflower soup and special vegan sandwich which has creamy cashew cheese on it! They now have a bunch of raw vegan cakes which are so perfect when you don't want a whole meal but fancy something sweet with your morning coffee. Ostehuset also function as a shop where you can buy artisanal chocolates, spices and herbs as well as many of their homemade sandwich toppings, so you can take some of their amazing hummus home.


try the vegan special at


Ethiopian cuisine ranks among our favourites, and Gådjå is definitely among our favourite restaurants. Conveniently located in the centre of Stavanger, Gådjå has a whole vegan section of the menu with 7 main course dishes to choose from. Our favourite dish here is the Gådjå Vegan Special Beyeanetu, which is a red and green lentil curry, chickpea curry, spinach, beetroot and asparagus and is served with salad and cooked vegetables. This costs 165,-kr for one person, 300,-kr for two people to share, or 430,- for three people to share, so the more people you share with, the cheaper it all is!

IMS Internasjonal Matsenter

Smart vegans know the secret to a healthy budget is to buy your chickpeas, lentils, and other pulses dried in huge bags, and stock up on spices, rice and noodles at a local international supermarket. This is why we come to IMS Internasjonal Matsenter. Here you can get all that good stuff, tofu, jackfruit, sauces, and lots of vegetables that you just won't find in regular stores! Our friend Vegetarbloggen shops here all the time for her kitchen essentials and she recommended the vegan naan bread from their bakery.



renaa xpress 

Renaa Xpress is a great place to visit with friends where you can order a delicious vegan pizza straight off the menu. The popular Marinara comes topped with fresh and delicious garlic oregano, olive oil tomatoes and chilli and costs 120,-kr. Our favourite however is the Zucchini which is topped with squash, tomato, olives, garlic, basil and oregano. It's a real treat and costs 180,-. If you don't fancy pizza, there is soup, paninis, and vegan salad with pickled vegetables at 85,- For dessert you can get some amazing fancy vegan gourmet chocolate cake!
