Our comments: The vegetarian cafe at the Centre for Alternative Technology visitor centre is vegan friendly, with a selection of vegan mains and cakes. All the soups, curries and stews are suitable, there is an option of vegan pizza (using Violife vegan cheese) and they have jacket potatoes with fillings (vegan cheese, hummus, beans etc.). The salad bar is vegan as well, they only use vegan mayonnaise. They have vegan cakes that are made on the premises every day, which means they do run out towards the end of the day. The coffee is made from a 'Bean to Cup' machine that uses powdered milk except in black coffee; they do provide hot or cold soya milk for these coffees. If vegans contact them before visiting the chef can make sure there are extra suitable options to choose from.
CAT is about 3 miles north of Machynlleth, just off the A487 towards Dolgellau. It is clearly signposted from the main road.
