The Greenhouse Eatery, Doncaster
I was so excited to find out that a brand new vegan restaurant had opened in Doncaster, since towns like Donny often miss out on stuff like this. Think burgers, “chicken” tenders, poutine, and cheesecake. Places like this really fly the flag high for good quality, tasty plant based eats and I absolutely cannot wait to try everything. If you don’t have time to dine in, grab yourself some takeaway.
Humblest of Pleasures, Hebden Bridge
My current biggest goal in life is to get breakfast at Humblest of Pleasures. I just don’t know how I’ll ever decide between the pancakes and the waffles – and I’ll probably end up with both. Humblest is also super cute with lovely pink and green aesthetics which a gal can always appreciate. It’s 100% vegan and dog-friendly – what more could you want?
Boho Utopia, Manchester
I super super super need to visit Boho Utopia because they do UNICORN afternoon tea! Their cooked breakfasts also look absolutely incredible, and I’m not usually one for a cooked breakfast (sausage, bacon, etc). Open 7 days a week and dog-friendly, I’ll definitely be popping in some day soon.
The Plant, Sheffield
Ok, so technically this isn’t a restaurant, it’s a “takeaway”, but it’s just what the vegan scene has been lacking I think: vegan pasties to go! Sheffield boasts many fantastic vegan venues, including The Burger Garden and Make No Bones, and it just seems to keep getting better. The Plant was opened in March of this year by the owners of Steel City Cakes, and they serve pasties, quiches, doughnuts, cakes, chilli, soup, sandwiches, and more! Perfect if you’re working close by and need to grab lunch.
Leeds is pretty set for vegans recently, with the veganisation (is that a word? well it is now) of Mogs, and the opening of the brand new Knaves Kitchen in Oporto. However, Cantina of The Old Red Bus Station has been open for some time now and I’ve still not had chance to give it a try! Burgers, kebabs, tofu, seitan, chips, onion rings… and it’s cheap, too, with 2 for £8 mains! They also host regular Sunday roasts, so keep your eye out to book yourself in.
Some of their mains look absolutely delicious… Kotlet Schabowy, Jackfruit Awaze Tibs and Atakilt Wat, Tom Kha. No, I don’t know what any of those words mean either, but a quick scan through their descriptions and I know I want them in and around my mouth. Not super cheap, but not extortionate, and they also offer To-fish and chips with mushy peas, so I just gotta try it. The menu is actually huge which is really exciting since vegans have had just one or two options in the past. It’s a bar and live music venue, as well, and yes – it’s dog friendly.
Dou Dou, London
Dou Dou is an all-vegan Chinese buffet in Camden town, with all you can eat for just £6.90! Cheap as salt and pepper chips! I absolutely love my food dripping with sweet and sour sauce, so I will certainly be visiting Dou Dou next time I’m in London.
Run from inside the Hope and Ruin pub in Brighton, Beelzebab offers the vegan diner food of dreams! Doners, hot dogs, loaded fries and more available 7 days a week. It’s super quirky inside, too, with the kitchen inside a caravan! I just love vegans… our minds… ugh… incredible.
Very sad about the fact Fressh of Birmingham is not my house because I want access to that menu all the time actually. Breakfast burritos, “egg” muffins, and bagels on offer in the mornings… sandwiches, salads, wraps, subs, and burgers available from 11am… It’s your world, Fressh, I’m just livin’ in it. They’re on Deliveroo and UberEats, also, so if you’re local – take advantage.
The Bohemian, Newcastle
This bar/record shop/restaurant turned vegan early this year, and is only a 2 minute walk from Newcastle train station! They specialise in pizza, but they also offer burgers, tapas, and more. There’s also a vegan cocktail menu, which is super nice, since most mainstream cocktail bars are a minefield with ingredients like egg whites and cream – yuck! You can also book yourself in for vegan afternoon tea.
