Veggy Way Sapporo

Eating with health in mind in Hokkaido

By Kim B    - 2 min read

Many of us know the saying "you are what you eat", which highlights the importance of eating healthfully to ensure overall wellness. Veggy Way in Sapporo is a vegan cafe that places a real emphasis on this way of thinking. Their core philosophy is based on the three holistic health principles of body, mind, and spirit, and dishes here are made without the use of meat, fish, eggs, dairy, white sugar, or alcohol.

The menu at Veggy Way has plenty of flavorsome dishes to choose from. There are lunch options including the teriyaki veggie meat bowl (¥950), the soy katsu burger (¥1000), or the omakase meal set (¥1550), where the chef serves up several recommended dishes. There are also an impressive range of sweets available if you just want to pop in for a dessert and some coffee, including vegan soft serve ice cream, a rotational variety of raw tarts, gateaux chocolat, and even vegan parfaits in banana, chocolate, or berry flavors. Most of the menu is available as takeout, so if you'd prefer to grab your meal to-go it's easy to call ahead and place an order. For celiacs who may be visiting, a number of options at Veggy Way are gluten-free, but it's worth noting that some products containing wheat are prepared in the same kitchen. If you don't live in Sapporo but you're still based in Japan, a number of the cafe's sweet treats are available in their online shop and can be shipped nationwide.

Do note that the cafe is closed every Sunday if you're planning a special trip.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan - specifically Tokyo and Niigata. I've  visited 44 of 47 prefectures, with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

Gourmet vegan food for standard restaurant prices is a real find.

Yes! For several years (when it was harder to find vegan restaurants/cafes) it always felt a lot more expensive. I feel like nowadays the demand is rising, so the prices are becoming more affordable.
