Lovely little café

Popped in for brunch recently. It's a lovely little café which is wholly vegan other than offering cows' milk in hot drinks. There's a great vegan menu with so many tasty treats on offer that it was hard to choose. After much debate I had the vegan haggis, avocado, kimchi & sriracha sandwich which may sound like an odd combo but trust me it really works! They also make a great oatmilk flat white. If you're in Stirling looking for some vegan options, this is very much the place to be!

UPDATE MAY 2023: no longer fully vegan which is a shame but they still offer all the same great options as they used to - they've just added scrambled eggs/bacon as alternatives to scrambled tofu/this isn't bacon.

Lovely little cafe. The menu is vegetarian however the lunch/brunch menu is all vegan. Staff were friendly and the food was tasty! I ordered the pancakes and had a pot of tea. Will definitely be returning to sample the other wonderful things on the menu.

Fantastic cafe that does breakfast/brunch and has lots of baked goodies and doughnuts.

You can easily miss this place as they still had the previous business sign up ‘optician’ when we visited. I only knew of this cafe because of my search on HappyCow.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff with trendy interior.

We ordered different breakfast buns which were really tasty. Being nosey I had a good glance at what our neighbouring diner were having and the breakfast beans and scramble looked amazing.

We also ordered the doughnuts to go. They are a decent size filled either with raspberry jam, biscoff or chocolate. The doughnuts were very well stuffed but quite oily. I wasn’t too keen on the chocolate filling unfortunately and my daughter found the biscoff filling not very biscoffy. My husband really enjoyed the raspberry doughnut though.

We will definitely be back for the brunch next time we visit Stirling.

Pros: Lots of options , Friendly staff , Brunch

Great place for lunch or a coffee !

Food menu was simple and looks delicious - all seems fresh and appetising.
4 different plant milks to choose from so you'll get something you'll like, and the baked goods on display are freshly baked and mouth watering. Staff were great, and everything fairly priced - will definitely be coming back.

Pros: Lovely staff, The chocolate babka, Well priced

Great Stirling pit stop

We had an hour or so to kill in Stirling and hadn’t eaten, so we sought out this cafe as suitable for our differing palates and levels of hunger. Each of the four of us had a different brunch dish - my mushrooms with avocado on toast was stunning. The others enjoyed pancakes with tofu scramble and seitan, tofu scramble and avocado on toast and bbq beans on toast plus a selection of hot and cold drinks and a bowl of water for the dog.
Service was impeccable and we were so full after that none of us could manage a doughnut even though they looked tempting. Highly recommended.

Pros: Laid back, Friendly, Fresh

The best place for breakfast and brunch in Stirling

I have been here a few times before and after the recent refurbishment and I absolutely love it!
The menu has changed a little bit and sadly the amazing menemen is gone! But the options that remain are delicious!
The coffee here is also amazing and I have to have two every time I go in for food!

I have the french toast with beans which was 10 out of 10. I also had the frozen rhubarb drink which was a little bit tasteless but refreshing.

Pros: Loads of vegan options , Tasty

Cons: Little bit more expensive but not bad

Great wee find!

Lovely wee cafe with a lovely friendly owner. We sat outside but inside the cafe looked fresh, clean and comfortable. The food was beautiful, we both had the special which was absolutely delicious. So colourful, full of flavour and healthy, I hope it's a regular on the menu because if I'm ever back in Stirling I'll be back for more. We both had black coffee but there is a variety of plant based milk on offer. Nice selection of cakes though we didn't have any, I did take some ombar chocolate buttons home with me though. Great wee surprise finding this place and I'll defy be back if I'm out that way again!

Pros: Lovely vegan food.

Cons: None.

Had a lovely brunch here and thoroughly recommend the sourdough toast with avocado, cream 'cheese' mint and pomegranate - lush. The sourdough with avocado and Herby mushrooms was lovely too. A lot of nice vegan options and will definitely go back.

Pros: Nice menu, Reasonable price

Cons: Pretty basic decor and furnishings
