Located in a small shopping centre near Lake Bled, Public Bar & Vegan Kitchen serves vegan dishes, such as vegan burgers (made of different kinds of buns and filled with different kinds of patties and sauces), soups, salads, vegan and gluten-free sweets and freshly squeezed juices.
If you look for a place where you can have a quick and healthy snack while exploring Bled, then this vegan bar with outdoor seating is a great choice!
OUR ORDER: Club Burger, House Burger.
OUR EXPERIENCE: The burgers that arrived quickly looked delicious – and healthy! The bun was nicely crunchy and the patty inside (made of mushrooms, zucchini, pumpkin and different sorts of seeds) was delightful. The burger also included a salad mix and a sauce, which made the burger refreshing.
Vegan burgers we ordered were made of buckwheat buns, However, you can also pick other kinds for your burger, such as spelt, corn or gluten-free buns.
If you do not feel like having a meal, you can just have a drink there (maybe a refreshing juice), smoothie or treat yourself with a vegan dessert.
CONCLUSION: All in all, Public Bar & Vegan Kitchen did not disappoint us even though it was not possible to order everything from their menu (waffle pizza, soups) that day. The vegan burgers were delicious, the staff attentive and the atmosphere international and relaxed. Till next time!
Update in May 2018: It is now possible to order a vegan cream cake (kremšnita) that is a version of traditional Bled Cream Cake that does not include any animal-derived ingredients.
