Fantastic vegan cafe/ shoo

Found this place whilst trying in Hull and had the best vegan breakfast ever. Even my carni son loved his pancakes and 'bacon'. Thoroughly enjoyed my bacon cob and my daughter was very happy with her beans on toast with Oreo milkshake.
Also, a lovely little shop selling a variety of vegan goodies and refills.
We will be back as often as we can

Multifunctional shop, friendly team

Not just a café, but a refill shop and deli. Awesome-looking ice cream sundaes (which I was too full to try after my German hot dog) and yummy smoothies (I had the yellow one). Lovely helpful staff. Sells everything from loose cocoa powder by weight, to dog biscuits! Fascinating place that's well worth a visit. Less than 10mins walk from the train station.

Pros: Very good selection of cakes , Friendly staff , Refill foods, toiletries and household cleaners

Cons: Not the healthiest menu

Friendly laidback atmosphere

I had the all day breakfast and a large cappuccino which were both tasty and plentiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is so relaxed that, if I hadn’t been working, I would have stayed longer. If I’m in this area again, I will definitely revisit.

Pros: It’s all vegan, Staff are friendly

Amazing Place, great decor and fab food, we went miles out of the way and it didn't disappoint

We were travelling from N Yorks to Lincolnshire and decided we could pop in to Cottingham for this place, it was epic! I'm not a breakfast person but I was in love with their bagel, omellete, sausage, hashbrown, beans and cheese!!! My partner got a homemade beetburger with extra hash browns- it all tasted amazing, the tables are fab, its nice and roomy upstairs and they have a great selection in their shop- we picked up some violife extra mature and could have easily got lots more! We even stayed a while in the village so we could have their amazing dessert and milkshakes-divine! if we are ever in the area we will definetly return as it was a great experience. A SUPER FINE example of a vegan cafe!!!!

Pros: great selection of food and drinks, plus 'shop', THE SHAKES!!!! YUM! lots of flavours available, The setting, big tables, comfy couches

Cons: Not much room downstairs but LOTS upstairs, no lock on toilet door

Cake / Hot Drinks

We visited here whilst in the area. Fantastic that Cottingham has a vegan cafe.

I found the hot chocolate to be very sweet therefore didn’t finish the drink. Lots of options for cakes however again, very sweet and one portion of cake was quite dry

Options for a dark hot choc would be great.

Would consider returning for some savoury food

Pros: Specials board

Cons: Food very sweet

Lovely little place

I really liked this place. As other people have said it's a lot of meat replacements which I'm not a huge fan of, but I love vegan cheese and there was plenty of that! I still enjoyed my meal, I had a baked potato with cheese. Portion sizes are great and the desserts are WONDERFUL

Pros: lovely atmosphere, dog friendly, GREAT DESSERTS

Cons: Could do with a few options without fake meat

Friendly attractive cafe

So I think it’s great Cottingham have a vegan cafe. It’s a very attractive place to be, they’ve done well there. BUT... food options are all meat replacement which I can understand might attract meat eaters to come and check it out.. but menu just wasn’t that appealing to me and the hot dog I had was absolutely vile. Cake and mylkshake were delicious.

Pros: Delicious cakes several to choose from , Nice decor , Shop

Cons: All meat replacement eg: hot dog, chicken , Meat replacement did not taste good at all , Not enough imaginative vegan options on menu

Cruelty-free Eatery

We are so lucky to have this 100% vegan cafe in East Yorkshire. It's a novelty to have so much choice for once instead of just one token vegan option. They also stock various vegan chiller and non-chiller items and are dog friendly.

Pros: 100% vegan, vegan owner, Dog friendly , Lots of choice, freshly prepared

Cons: Wish there was a Blondes in every town!

Vegan cafe

It was a nice friendly place cosy atmosphere but the food wasn’t very good, I had a hot dog which was dry and bland without onions as they didn’t do them. I think it’s a snacks type place where I was probably wanting a proper vegan restaurant type place instead of a cafe. Other than that it was awesome to have a all vegan place!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Completely vegan, Dog friendly

Cons: Food wasn’t very nice

Best cakes!

Now 100% vegan. Recently updated decor and new menu with many options. All of their cakes are delicious - especially the rocky road! They also sell vegan products you can buy and take away eg cheese/vego chocolate and spread/perfumes etc. Run by a lovely family! A must visit when in the area. Dog friendly.

Pros: Mostly vegan, Gluten free, Fab staff

Cons: None

Charming dog friendly cafe

Delicious sweet and savory food. All human food is vegan and there are often fantastic food options especially for dogs too. Since a renovation in early 2018 there has been so much more seating space upstairs.

Pros: Dog friendly, doubles as a gift shop, Chilled deli section of 'meats' and 'cheeses' to t

Expensive but all vegan

Love that Blondes is fully vegan and the staff are nice. I find it expensive though and most things aren't home made so I don't go often.

An experience

Just how good is Blonde's? Well, we have a mate who will occasionally cycle from Sheffield for breakfast at Blonde's and then cycle home. That's a 160 mile round trip. But let's face it, where else can you get a vegan fish finger and mushy pea panini? Or foot high freak shakes? Or a muffin for your dog? Blonde's is an experience, not just a cafe.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

absolutely love this place!

Entirely vegan, even down to the cleaning products! The BBQ pulled not pork took me back to The USA with the added feel good factor that it was ethically sound and much healthier, everything I've tried has been fantastic, from the healthy smoothies to the decadent desserts and all the wonderful savoury food

Pros: Everything

Cons: it's not open 24/7 😂

Best vegan place around!!!

Blondes offers a huge menu so let's start with the drinks menu ranging from coffee, teas, freakshakes to smoothies to the best hot chocolates list you'll ever see!
And the food is suitable for all eaters they have mock meat alternatives for paniniis toasties wraps you name it, they have jacket potatoes, they offer breakfast menu then do burgers, chilli, curry it's a vegan dream! So nice to go somewhere and not just have falafel and hummus, prices are very reasonable
I'm obsessed with the club sandwiches they do!
And NOW CAKE you'll never see vegan cake like it it's unreal! Glittery Cheesecakes rocky road Eton mess brownies shortbreads custard slices rainbow cakes and so many more all yes all vegan!!
It's a family run shop which also sells lots of gifts and animal related products, all the tips go to help animals in need in Europe! What else could you want I highly recommend this place
Oo and not to mention they recently got a vegan fridge full of cheeses mayo etc to buy!
I love it here!! ✌

Pros: dog friendly!!! , staff are all vegan so they understand , something for everyone 😊
