Great for vegans in Birmingham

Great options and great prices. Didn’t really like the bacon pieces but the rest was very nice. Loads of kids options for cheap too e.g. fishless fingers. Does vegan pancakes and milkshakes too. Staple option for birmingham vegans.

Brilliant bistro in Brum

Our 'go to' place in Birmingham for brunch. The hearty vegan breakfast is huge and offers a greater variety on the plate than other establishments.
A great 'bistro' in an old pub near New Street Station, lots of vegan options on the menu. Great staff & free WiFi
Good coffee, cakes and alcoholic drinks too.

Never fails to disappoint

Loads of options to choose from, particularly for brunch.

Portion sizes are somehow always larger than expected so we never leave hungry. Also has a great drinks selection.

Super yum!

Update: have been back many times and each has been great. Beers and wines are all labelled and they put on the best vegan Christmas for our university vegan society:)

Wanted to try the banana blossom ‘fish’ n chips but unfortunately they had no banana blossom, instead they said they could do me a battered vegan sausage and it did not disappoint. The potion was super generous, the chips were amazing! Would be 5/5 if I could:)

A must on busy days out

I absolutely love this place, before and even after I decided to go vegan! Fresh food served by amazing people in a relaxed atmosphere in the middle of s busy city centre. What's not to like in that? It's like a paradise island to call home 🥰

Pros: Location, LOTS of options, Price

Cons: None!

Lots of choice

Lots of vegan options and had some gf options too. Had a great breakfast hash and my friends had a full vegan breakfast/pancakes. My friend eyeballed them giving me dairy milk by accident and then they corrected this, so have marked down for this only.

Family brunch

2 adults 2 teenagers and this is what we ordered-
Hearty Vegan (scramble could do with a bit more taste) vegan breakfast Muffin beautifully presented, rocky road homemade American style pancake stack and white chocolate biscuit millionaire.
Drinks were a slightly mellow flavoured Chai latte but with tons of cinnamon and a great cardamom taste at the end.. A really lovely vegan cherry milkshake and a vegan flat white.
Lovely very filling big portions.

Shame the whole place is not vegan if this is the standard of vegan food!

Cozy café with lots of vegan options

This Cafe which has two floors and has a really cozy interior serves many dishes which are either vegan or can easily be made vegan. For example pancakes, English breakfast, porridge, burgers, sandwiches, fish & chips, milkshakes and hot drinks. I've tried some of their vegan cakes and hot chocolate which was always delicious. Staff is also super friendly and prices are reasonable. Though it can get really hard to balance your hot drink up to the frist floor since the stairs are really steep.

Pros: so many vegan options, vegan cakes, super cozy

Cons: serves meat

Pork on vegan breakfast

Actually gave us pork sausages on our vegan breakfast. Not acceptable to be this slack when running a meat and veggie/vegan restaurant. Take care or don’t do it at all

Cons: Served pork on a vegan breakfast

Good brunch, nice coffee, lovely space.

Had a really good vegetarian breakfast here, but had to make it up ourselves as really not a fan of the linda-mcartny style vege sausages that came with the fixed menu. Not quite sure why people rave about the hash browns, they're basic packaged frozen ones.

The coffee (americano) was really good, and staff super friendly.

The space is lovely, especially upstairs.

Pros: Built your own vegetarian breakfast, Staff, Interior

Cons: Hash browns (disappointing), Vegetarian sausages (why?)

Many sweet and savoury options- cake!!!

Cherry Reds is one of my favourite places to eat in Birmingham- so much so that I decided I'd go for my birthday meal this year!!
There's burgers, pancakes, a full english, cake, sandwiches etc. The chips are particularly great, proper thick ones lol.
Reasonably priced and with a friendly, cosy vibe, Cherry Reds is a must-go for veggies/ vegans when in the area.

Pros: Great, varied vegan menu, Friendly, cosy vibe , Lots of seating

Lovely cafe bar with good vegan breakfast

Welcoming and friendly street corner cafe bar with outdoor seating in a pedestrianised area. Not sure why you'd go to bewdog over the road with this place here! Wish it was my local.

Vegan cooked breakfast hits the spot and is good value. There are other vegan options like an interesting sounding burger, plant milks available for coffee including a speciality coffee when we visited!

Pros: Warm and welcoming, plenty of vegan options, Outdoor seating

Sunday brunch

Great place to go with mixed veg/non-veg group of friends .
Vegan fry ups, breakfast burrito etc.
Linda McCartney sausages. Avoid the fried tofu - ask for scrambled, it's much nicer.

Great breakfast

We cane here on a recommendation for Sunday morning breakfast. There was so much choice on the menu we found it hard to choose, big breakfast, bagels, pancakes, porridge everything you can think of, will definitely be back.
