Edinburgh is great for vegans.
The Baked Tattie shop, the Piemaker, Bo Blacks and David Banns are all great.

In most little shop you will get vegan pies and sausage rolls made by a company called Jordan Valley. The sausage rolls in particular are awesome.

Finally best coffee shop in Edinburgh is called Artisan Roast, a must visit if you like coffee. Best soya latte you will ever have in your life.

I like Stereo in Glasgow when I've been down there but any vegan place gets me excited as Aberdeen doesn't have a single veggie/vegan place. Ate there twice in one weekend :)

Mono in Glasgow is great. I was there yesterday, and its good food and drinks, all vegan.
I've never been to Stereo, though I've heard good things about it. I think its the same owner/manager as Mono, as well as The 78, which is another vegan cafe/bar.

For Edinburgh, I'll second the Baked Potato Shop, its great. David Banns is nice as well. Another place I like is the Engine Shed Cafe, which is good for cheap lunch and cakes, though I think it will be closed over Christmas/New Year. Also, Kalpna and Ann Purna do great veggie Indian food.

Thanx for all the tips! :D

Went to both Mono and Stereo in Glasgow! They were both very nice! Unfortunatly missed the closing time on the tattie shop in Edinburgh, but on the other hand managed to tick of another country on the "Countries I've had falafel in list" :D

Which one did you go to? The one down the steps or the one down by hollyrod?

Are you going to either, stoaty?

I'm heading to Glasgow myself in October, hoping to also pop over to Edinburgh for a day to sneak in some baked tatties.

What dates you in Glasgow and what you up for man?

I've heard about a new vegan cafe in Glasgow - Heavenly, on Hope Street. http://www.heavenlyglasgow.co.uk/
Not been myself yet, but it looks cool and heard good reviews from friends.

I was there the other day. It's very, very nice and really reasonably priced. The gravy on their bangers and mash was one of the tastiest things I've had in a long time. It's also a really nice place to just hang out in
