The Verdict

Where can you go to access the largest range of vegan meals in Melbourne? The Cornish Arms. Vegan parma, burritos, pizza, burgers, souvas—you name it! These guys are a vegan's dream. They're even doing a vegan 'double down'—cheez and facon sandwiched between two mock chicken fillets ala KFC.

The Cornish Arms pivoted when chef Lloyd Kembrey joined the crew. Before that it was your regular Sydney Rd pub, serving us just about every animal under the sun. Now, like Carlton's Green Man's Arms, it's gone down the vegan route. And the results are surprisingly delicious.

The black-tiled main bar with its multicoloured backlighting is always a welcome sight on a cold Melbourne night. Sit yourself down, grab a vegan souvlaki and order a pint of 4 Pines pale ale, Napoleone Cloudy Cider or Temple's 'Anytime' IPA. There's also a decent mix of local wines from the Adelaide Hills, Tassie and New Zealand.

Brunswick vegans, welcome to your default weekend hang.
