Always a great trip

This is one of the best vegan eating establishments I’ve been to. There’s always fresh food to eat in or go away with, and ice cream in the summer! The staff are ace too.

Pros: All vegan, Fairly priced, Amazing staff

Cons: Not always open (worth the wait)

Amazing vegan food

I visited here last year around Christmas and we enjoyed burgers and a hot chocolate. The food was really good and they had lots of cakes too on offer. Can’t wait to visit again next time I’m in the area!

You should definitely visit!

Great menu to eat in, good for takeout, and it has a vegan shop too. The milkshakes are really nice too 👌🏻.

Absolute gem of a place

Cakes are amazing! One stop shop for all things vegan. It’s a bakery with fresh cakes with a cafe and it’s also a vegan shop! Amazing!

One stop shop for all things vegan

Great little shop with limited seating for cafe customers. Extensive stock of vegan specific products, as well as reasonably priced refill items like lentils, oats and other dry ingredients. We loved the dog treats and seed bombs.

Portion sizes are large. I realised halfway through my sandwich I'd made a mistake ordering chips as a side order! We were pleased to get cake to take away. The cinnamon buns are a fabulous treat.

They don't accept bookings so getting a table could be tricky at busier times, but it's worth the risk!

Pros: Well stocked to cover all bases , Great value, filling meals

A true gem

Discovered this place whilst on holiday nearby. Part cafe, part shop. The staff are wonderful and were happy to have a good natter to my wife and I whilst we picked out our shopping (side note - I always like it when shops aren’t full of the same vegan products. Never seen chocolate custard before and yes I bought it!). Breakfast bagel was to die for. I watched the staff interact with their regulars and the fact they knew their orders says it all about the kind of place it is. Recommended, a must go-to if in the area.

Pros: Staff are really friendly, Variety of products in shop part, Menu items are delicious in cafe part

Family run cafe

Lovely family run cafe - perfect for lunch or an afternoon cake. They also sell lots of products for you to take home, and it's the home of Mummy Megz chocolates!

Tasty and huge servings

I love that this coffee serves animal charities, how lovely. The food is nice, huge portions. Would be nice to have some things with half the sugar in but overall amazing place and ethos

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
