Huge vegan range

Coughlans are well known for their massive vegan baked goodies range (donuts, pastries, biscuits, meringue, cupcakes, sausage-style rolls, cheez & onion pasties, vegan bacon pasties, plant milks for drinks etc). Nice friendly staff, store always looks clean. There’s a comment below about the vegan items not being vegan - this just sounds like a case of out of date labelling, so rather than leaving a bad review it’s probably better just to message them if you see something confusing, or to ask the staff directly as they will no doubt have an allergen book. Sean Coughlan (of Coughlans) is very active on social media so it’s probably better to mention to him what might be an innocent mistake rather than putting down a business that is trying very hard to veganise its range.

Main downside to Coughlans is that as a lunch location, it’s all very much ‘naughty’ food. They used to sell a really nice hummus/pepper sandwich but stopped selling it a long time ago. It’d be good to see that back, and maybe something like a vegan cream cheese/spinach wholemeal sandwich etc.

Pros: The vegan cheez and onion pasty. It’s awesome. , Donuts , Massive vegan range, one of the biggest anywhere

Cons: Still has animal products, No healthy lunch options (see my comment above)

Are "vegan" items really vegan?

I don’t have confidence that what I'm buying is actually vegan. For example, the plain salad baguette is stated as vegan but also "contains milk" (not "may contain").

Pros: Lots of supposedly vegan options

Cons: Not sure if things are actually vegan

As of mid 2022, lovely vegan owner Sean Coughlan confirmed that "97% of our entire range is vegan" :-)

Bakery where most things are vegan!

Coughlans Bakery has made most of their range vegan - savoury and sweet pastries, biscuits, muffins, toasted and fresh sandwiches, loaves and cakes too!
They do still serve a few non-vegan items.
Their coffee is great too - selection of plant-based milk alternatives available.

Pros: Lots of vegan option, Vegan cakes & pastries, Vegan savoury pastries and sandwiches

Cons: Still serves some non-vegan items
