Our comments: The restaurant and takeaway menus both have marked vegan dumplings and iceberg lettuce wraps for starters. The suitable mains are in the "Vegetables & Vegan Fibre" section of the menus. There is also a vegan set menu on offer.
Unfortunately a local vegan found small pieces of meat in an ordered vegan tofu & black bean dish, so despite the labelling of suitable dishes, it appears they use the same pans for vegan, vegetarian and meat options. Exercise extreme caution in using this establishment.
There may be up to two labelled vegan dishes available at branches of this coffee shop chain; sweet potato falafel & beetroot houmous wrap and falafel & tabbouleh salad. Soya milk is available for coffees and other drinks. There are also a few other suitable items: Bear Yo Yo's, sea salt crisps, fruit & nuts, fruit salad, soya milk porridge, Propercorn (sea salt & sweet brown sugar and sea salt flavours), Totally Nuts and the ciabatta bread roll, served with soup (but not soup!).
Wednesday from 5pm is curry night when there is a labelled roasted vegetable jalfrezi (without poppadom or naan). On other days there are only sides and desserts. The garlic bread, vegetables and stuffing squares are suitable. Enquire of the staff if the chips, sweet potato fries and onion rings are fried separately from animal products. The vegan desserts are apple pie (without custard) and praline chocolate tart.
