What is this thing called Lurve?
Posted on 03 / 20 / 2013
I'd like to make it clear from the outset that I am also a volunteer at Lurve (though like Jessica I was a customer first).
Lurve is a small independent Vegan cafe on Mary street selling a variety of fresh, delicious vegan foods every day. A typical daily menu will consist of: a choice of two freshly made soups, six types of salad, a variety of sandwiches with a choice of three kinds of bread and half a dozen spreads all made fresh in the cafe, two or three main courses and three or four sorts of delicious vegan deserts. All of our coffee is organic, fairtrade AND rainforest alliance certified, and we also stock a number of organic herbal teas.
The staff currently consists entirely of volunteers, all of whom are warm and friendly, and eager to make your Lurve experience as good as they possibly can. Why? Because they, like myself, all recognise the importance of a place like Lurve; if we are ever to have a vegan world we need to support the people who try to make it happen. If you are a vegan in Dublin and have not yet visited Lurve you really need to ask yourself: do you really care about creating a vegan world?
The only real downside to Lurve is the fact that it sometimes has to close early due to lack of volunteers, and sometimes the food runs out before the end of the day. These are minor teething problems that will soon be taken care of, and we have big, big plans for the future including language exchanges, cultural evenings and live music. So treat yourself; come experience Lurve and support a more ethical and compassionate Dublin.
