This gourmet restaurant serves up artisan raw cuisine with a modern twist, but they also run raw food courses, raw cleanses and offer all sorts of info about the raw food lifestyle. But whatever, you’re just here for the cake. You can order their raw vegan cakes to take away, think nuts and seeds for the cheesecake style bases and a light, creamy topping; or alternatively indulge with the dessert menu after your raw main course in the restaurant. NAMA is the go to spot for uber healthy vegan treats, meaning you get to spoil yourself with vegan chocolate caramel cake or vegan tiramisu without any of the guilt! Goodbye to that oversized winter jumper!

This is the ultimate vegan pit stop for when you just need a little boost or a break from shopping in central London. In the heart of Soho is Yorica!, offering up fro-yo, shakes, waffles, ice-cream and smoothies that are all vegan, gluten free and nut free. Hooray! We’re not entirely sure how they do it (maybe it’s magic), but the ice-cream and fro-yo is so deliciously creamy that even those pesky people who stubbornly resist vegan cuisine will be won over in a second. So choose your flavour, choose your toppings and you’ll be on your way to vegan dessert heaven.
