Vegan options available, Hastings seafront
Posted on 11 / 03 / 2012
The cafe has moved to the new building at The Stade near the Jerwood Gallery and the fishing huts on the seafront, from Claremont.
Vegan options such as vegan cheese panini, beanburgers, vegan cheese or mushroom pate sandwiches / baguettes / jackets are still available but I do think there is more emphasis on fish and tourist food since the move. I guess this is unavoidable in the location.
It is still VERY child-friendly, with toys and stuff provided, child seats, and child portions of most dishes available. Nothing has been done to deal with acoustics so it can be a bit irritating to eat-in unless you are also "blessed" with a brat. In the Summer there are tables and chairs outside.
There are more staff now and not all seem to understand vegan-ism, so last time I ordered vegan cheese panini they served it with coleslaw which isn't vegan. That kind of mistake never used to happen.
They also stopped making vegan pizzas, which was one of the finest things they used to do.
For vegans this place has really gone downhill!
