A vacation might be a break from your usual routine, but it's not a break from your dietary requirements as a vegetarian or vegan. After you arrive at your holiday accommodation in Adelaide, you might be wondering where you can refuel without having to worry about deviating from your culinary preferences. Well fear no more. When heading to Adelaide you'll find plenty of vegetarian options on offer. Here are five great restaurants to try during your trip.
Less than 20 minutes away on foot from the contemporary Mantra Hindmarsh Square hotel lies the award-winning Bliss Organic Cafe.
Resting on Compton Street, Bliss Organic Cafe makes all of its dishes by hand, using only organic and fair-trade ingredients. It also has its own grocery store, 1-Stop Vegan Shop, when you want to take a little home with you to try in your hotel's kitchen.
After a hard day's worth of touring, it might be nice to sit down to something a little sweeter to eat. As a vegan, you can't always have restaurant desserts, however, as they contain animal products. This is where Eggless Dessert Cafe comes in
Located in Goodwood, just 10 minutes south of the Adelaide CBD, Eggless Dessert Cafe handmakes all of its gourmet products without the use of eggs, and can also offer lactose-free variants as well.
Are there meat-lovers among you? Just less than 20 minutes south of Mantra on Frome on foot is a Chinese-style restaurant specialising in vegetarian food, with a faux-meat twist.
Meesu Vegetarian Kitchen offers a variety of Chinese dishes, many of which are made with mock meat produce. They don't just serve vegetarian-friendly beef and chicken, however, you can also get fish dishes - such as 'squid' rings - as well.

When you inevitably find yourself lounging at the beach, Sarah's Sister's Sustainable Cafe in Sephamore - about 30 minutes from the CBD - will have something delicious and healthy for you to indulge in.
The cafe originally opened in 1978 as Sarah's Cafe, showcasing fresh, local produce. In 2005 it changed to the name it has now (presumably sold to Sarah's sister) and serves a range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, still keeping with that same locally sourced aesthetic.
Finally, those of you staying at Mantra Hindmarsh Square should check out Earth's Kitchen, a mere minute's walk south, on Hyde Street.
This cafe opens from 7pm every day except the weekend, serving sumptuous dishes made with organic and local produce. The kitchen staff love sustainability, and try hard to always make sure the ingredients used are kind to the planet - after all, it is Earth's kitchen they work in. The cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For unlimited access to Adelaide's buzzing CBD and the vegetarian restaurants that orbit it, make sure to stay with Mantra.
Mantra Hindmarsh Square's air-conditioned rooms feature high-speed internet and FOXTEL, with some even featuring their own kitchen - great for when you want to get creative with your groceries from 1-Stop Vegan Shop. Should you desire a mid-holiday workout, the hotel also features its own gymnasium.
You could also consider Mantra on Frome, just nearby the luscious Rymill Park area. With this hotel you could stay in your choice of a studio room, or a one-, two- or three-bedroom self-contained apartment. Between your tours and restaurant adventures you could try the in-room therapeutic massage here, and if you're travelling with children, don't forget to check out the baby sitting facilities also on offer.
