Our comments: Small cafe, serving homemade burgers, sides, hot drinks and cakes, with vegan options. It is attached to an indoor skate park. They also have an art programme, so sometimes there will be gigs, exhibitions, performances and events on when people visit. The vegan options are.
Homemade burgers: Mushroom , nut & rosemary burger, served with homemade chips & a pickle, spiced bean, carrot & coriander burger, served with cucumber & mint soya yogurt, homemade chips and a pickle.
Sides: Beer battered onion rings, deep fried & battered gherkins, coleslaw (can be made with vegan yogurt & lemon juice dressing), handcut double fried skin on chips, fried in a separate fryer using sunflower oil.
They do make vegan chocolate and lemon & lime drizzle cakes but they are not available every day. They are prepared for days when they have events and know they will be busy but if people give them a days warning they are coming, they can make sure there is a vegan cake option.
Always have soya milk for hot drinks (tea, herbal teas, espresso, Americano, latte, cappuccino & hot chocolate, the cocoa is vegan).
They have built a wood fired pizza oven in their yard space and starting from November 2014 they will be doing pizza nights every Friday. Pizzas cost £5 and are approx. 10". The dough is vegan, as is the tomato sauce and there will be a range of suitable toppings such as roast peppers, rocket, jalapenos, olives & artichokes. See their website for further info on pizza evenings.
