If you’re vegan (or even vegetarian), you know how hard it can sometimes be to find restaurants that cater to your needs. At Christopher Columbus Condos, we want your vacation in Grand Cayman to be about relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, not about struggling to find a place to eat. To help you out, we created this guide of some of our favorite restaurants and cafes that offer vegan menu items:

Vivo

You don’t have to go far to enjoy vegan meals at this cafe—it’s only five minutes from Christopher Columbus Condos! Vivo offers delicious meals made from locally-grown ingredients and gorgeous views of the sea.

While not everything on the menu is vegan, most dishes can be prepared to accommodate any dietary restrictions.

Some of their vegan options include vegan omelets, chick-veg parmigiana, and vegan curry.

I visited for breakfast on my last trip and I am still thinking about the fresh orange juice and French Toast (made from spiced rum-infused coconut milk, cinnamon, and vanilla). To make the experience even more memorable, I was visited by a tiny green gecko who was quite interested in my blackberry compote—it was too good not to share. ;)

The Greenhouse

Located on Church Street in George Town, The Greenhouse is the perfect place to stop in for a quick pick-me-up. They have an exclusive menu with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. I suggest trying the strawberry banana smoothie with coconut water—it’s one of the best smoothies I’ve ever had!

Ristorante Papagaillo

If you’re looking for a truly unique dining experience with vegan dishes, Ristorante Papagaillo is the perfect place for you. While their vegan menu is small, they offer a number of vegetarian items that can be made vegan. I had the Fusilli Primavera, a savory pasta dish full of fresh veggies and tossed with a rich vegan sauce that was to die for.

What really makes Papagaillo so special is the environment. Situated on a saltwater lagoon at the edge of Barker’s National Park, Papagaillo’s unique structure is constructed of bamboo and other woods and features a stunning thatch roof. When you enter the restaurant you are greeted by its longest-serving team member—Humphrey Bogart, an African Gray Parrot. The main dining room offers dinner and a special attraction, with massive windows looking into the habitats of different parrots, macaws, and cockatoos. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind place.

Bread and Chocolate

Located in the heart of George Town, Bread and Chocolate is 100 percent vegan, 100 percent of the time. Bread and Chocolate is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and, much like Vivo offers a selection of dishes you can feel good about. Some of their menu items include the “Impossible Burger,” vegan shepherd’s pie, porkless sliders made from barbeque jackfruit, tacos, and waffles. Bread and Chocolate is one of the best places to enjoy a delicious meal that is sure to meet your dietary needs.

Tukka

Visiting the East End for a day? Tukka is the place for a great vegan meal. This seaside restaurant features Australian cuisine with a Caribbean flair that respects dietary needs. Their vegetarian menu offers a variety of dishes that can be prepared vegan or gluten-free. Enjoy your meal with a side of breathtaking sea views and a specialty drink.

Casa 43 Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar

Casa 43 is one of our favorite places to visit. With more than 80 different tequilas at their tequila bar, a friendly staff, and delicious food, it’s one of the most happening hidden places on the island. Much like other restaurants we’ve featured here, you have to ask for the vegan options, but they do have some tasty vegan options nonetheless. Make sure you say hello to our friend Max while you’re there :)


Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or just looking for something new, you have plenty of opportunities to enjoy delicious cuisine that fits your lifestyle in Grand Cayman. Know of a place with vegetarian or vegan menu items we missed? Let us know in the comments!

Pizza is one of the ultimate crowd-pleasing meals, and when you’re visiting the island you will be spoiled for choice on where to enjoy your next slice. We busted out our foodie journals and tested several pizza places across the island to bring you these recommendations—it was a difficult job, but someone had to do it! :)

Cimboco

Best Salad to Go Along With Your Pizza

As soon as you walk in the doors of Cimboco, you’ll be warmly welcomed by delicious smells of crust being baked in their brick oven. In addition to crisp, Roman-style crusts, they also boast the best Caesar salad on the island, which is served in a chilled bowl and comes with the perfect crouton to lettuce ratio. Be careful, though—you just might be dreaming of Cimboco's for weeks to come! 

Recommendation: BBQ Jerk Chicken Pizza  

The Brooklyn

Top Post-Shopping Power Up 

A must-visit when you stop by Camana Bay to shop, The Brooklyn has a huge selection of specialty pizzas, like the nacho, the bacon double cheeseburger, the Hawaiian, and the chicken tikka, in addition to your standard build-your-own options. Their trendy decor is certainly Instagram-worthy, plus you can watch your pizza bake right before your eyes in their brick oven. They also have gluten-free crust available upon request.

Recommendation: The Fun Guy (featuring 3 different mushrooms and truffle oil)

Boggy Sand Caribbean Kitchen

Closest Pizza Fix

Located just a couple minutes down the road from CCC, you can get your pizza fix the very quickest at Boggy Sand. A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, you’re certain to love their beautiful decor and cheery service in addition to some top-notch ‘za. Served on a pizza board with an olive oil-covered crust, these pizzas are definitely something to write home about.

Recommendation: Margherita (mozzarella and fresh basil)

Casanova Ristorante

Authentic Italian

For a wholly authentic Italian dining experience, enjoy your meal on the waterfront in Georgetown at Casanova. Really do it up and order a glass of wine or some Limoncello to go along with your delicious pizza—you won’t regret it!

Recommendation: Focaccina (Garlic and Rosemary)

Gino’s Pizzeria

Delivery Right To Your Condo

After a long day splashing in the ocean and sightseeing, you might be ready to kick back, relax in your condo, and have the pizza come to you. Gino’s Pizzeria will deliver their signature pizza, pastas, salads, and sandwiches right to your door at CCC in West Bay—all with no delivery fee!

Recommendation: Gino’s Classic (double pepperoni!)

XQ's

Pizza + Live Music

If you’re looking for some quality entertainment while you enjoy your next piping hot slice of pizza, XQ’s is your place! Every Thursday XQ’s is host to live music by Jeff Japal in their piano bar, and they have a huge TV where you can watch live sports or special events like UFC fights. Plus, they also deliver to West Bay. 

Recommendation: The Godfather (sausage, pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, onions, smoked gouda, and tomatoes—oh my!)

Alfresco

Pizza Right on Seven Mile Beach

Soak in all the beautiful sights and sounds of Seven Mile Beach at Alfresco’s in West Bay. A quick drive from the condos, Alfresco’s is famous for their outdoor dining and local fare like turtle stew and oxtail, but we’re pretty big fans of their pizzas, too! Build your own pizza by choosing from premium toppings like calamari, Gorgonzola cheese, roasted garlic, and more, or keep it simple with a meat lovers or vegetarian pizza—and whole wheat crust is also available upon request.

Recommendation: Seafood pizza (smoked salmon, shrimp, and lobster)
