Starter £4.95,
Main £13.25,

Comments: Friendly restaurant/bar/lounge where they cook their (omni) food freshly and make vegans feel welcome. Their website states that they pride themselves on being extremely vegan friendly. The menu changes but they are always happy to offer vegan options. At the time of research there were two labelled dishes available (see pictures); a starter of cannellini hummus, salt baked beetroot, walnut crumble & rosemary and a main of leek & sage fideuâ pasta, salt baked turnips, burnt shallot & sherry. They could also offer a poached pear & fig compote dessert. It is always lovely, day or evening. They're planning on doing vegan cakes and coffee through the summer too.

Location:
On the seafront of Porthcawl.
