Many of the food items are not available anywhere else locally, they have a good range of vegan confectionary and there is a fridge with chilled items. They also sell their own freshly baked cakes and other sweet options such as brownies and doughnuts and savouries like sandwiches, pies, pasties and pizza rolls.

Our comments: The ice cream here is made in front of you, in a cool science experiment way, with liquid nitrogen. The staff really know their stuff on veganism and there is always a vegan "ice cream" on offer. The flavour changes regularly but expect options such as chocolate coconut, peanut butter & banana caramel or blackcurrant & lemonade sorbet. The vegan toppings and sauces are also labelled and change slightly. The suitable options at the time of research were honeycomb, raspberry sauce, salted peanut praline and 70% chocolate shavings. There are also labelled vegan ice cream beverages; affrogato, Boston cooler and Coke float. Soya milk is available for drinks. Eat in or takeaway.

Our comments: The beers brewed at this micro-brewery are suitable for vegans. The pizza bases do not contain animal products, so pizzas can be ordered without cheese. The pasta used is suitable for vegans and most of the vegetarian dishes can be tweaked to be made vegan. Neither the fries or mashed potato are suitable but given a day or two's notice they can make sure there is vegan friendly mashed potato. When ordering inform your server you require vegan food.

Location:
Opposite the entrance to the Millennium Stadium, in Cardiff city centre.
