Vegan and Vegetarian-Friendly Cafes in Greenslopes

There has been a steady rise in the number of Australians turning to a vegetarian diet or actively reducing their meat consumption. Figures show that the number of Australian adults who are going meat-free had risen from 1.7 million people (9.7% of the population) to almost 2.1 million (11.2%) between 2012 and 2016.

With this steady growth in the demand for more meat-free food options, there is no wonder why most restaurants are now offering vegetarian and vegan meal options.
