Foodie City Break

Get your plate ready for unique foods and taste your way through Vilnius like a local.

Plan for a Brunch

Don’t pack your schedule too tight with sightseeing – make sure to set aside some time for a long brunch on the weekend. If you’re feeling adventurous, choose from a bunch of various plates including vegetarian and vegan options at Saulės Jėgainė for brunch and skate later in their skatepark. For fancy brunches, choose eggs Benedict at Stebuklai. 

Have the World on Your Plate

You don’t have to stick to traditional Lithuanian food to enjoy eating out. Find the perfect Belgian mussels at Rene, try the international menu paired with lovely wines at the cosy Bistro18, or get your pizza with a view at Užupio Pizzeria. You can also find Moroccan, Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, and other cuisines in Vilnius Old Town.

Dive into the City’s Fine Dining Scene

Take a chance and try a contemporary take on traditional Lithuanian food at Džiaugsmas. You can also opt for a tasting menu created by one of the most renowned Lithuanian chefs, Deivydas Praspaliauskas at Amandus.

Discover the Vegan Side of Vilnius

Don’t panic if you don’t eat meat or dairy – Vilnius is a friendly place whatever your dietary choices. You can grab a sandwich or choose a mouth-watering vegan cake at Chaika, get a vegan burger at Holigans, or enjoy falafels with different types of hummus from Zatar, try some Indian cuisine at Radharane.

Grill, Baby, Grill

Join the locals and enjoy the biggest Lithuanian summer hit – grilled foods. Choose Vingio istorijos for food and then rent a bike to explore the lush Vingis Park. Sit and enjoy the Old Town views on the Grill Terrace at VCUP, or rent your own grill and remember your camping days at Downtown Forest.

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Indulge yourself in gourmet desserts in Vilnius’ sugary heaven. Try colourful macaroons at Ali šokoladinė or sit outside on the green Sugamour terrace with a cup of coffee and exquisite little cakes.

Enjoy Afternoon Tea

If you’re feeling fancy, skip lunch and enjoy an afternoon tea ritual offered at Kempinski Hotel or Shakespeare Hotel. Turn on relaxed mode lazying around in an armchair and filling yourself up with sandwiches, pastries, and, of course, tea.

Shop in Food Markets

If you’re looking for the freshest ingredients, check out Hales Market near the train station or Kalvarijų Turgus in the city centre. You will find products from local farmers and get to taste berries and mushrooms picked in the forests nearby. For a hip adventure and new tastes try the Uptown Bazaar.

Check Out Food Events

Explore endless options of good food condensed in one small place. Select from a wide variety of street food at Open Kitchen, which takes place every Friday and Saturday at Loftas. Register for Diner en Blanc Vilnius in August and join the crowd dressed in white for the world famous event. Or pick the best burger at Burger Fest
