First Review by KTHRO

Small, cute, indie cafe, - Edit

Nice little place to stop for a snack, coffee or beer.

They serve "the vegetarian butcher" faux meats as sandwiches etc which are really nice. Some of the veg meat is vegan including the fake chicken. Few options on how you can have it; wrap sandwich etc.

They also do breakfest, cakes etc.

Pros: vegan sandwiches, independent, outdoor seating

Cons: Need more vegn options

Great for veggies/vegans who like meat-like veg "meat" - Edit

It's great to have a local place with a few different vegan options (and quite a lot of veggy options!), so we tried going to Hyde Park Book Club today. We had a cold bottled coffee, which was good and certainly a generous portion of it! The guy who worked there was nice, we really liked the way the place is decorated and of course super convenient location for lots of people living in Hyde Park/Headingley/Burley/Woodhouse. They also have tables outside so we could sit in the sun!
Food-wise: my boyfriend had a sandwich with vegan "veg butcher beef", and I had a wrap with vegan "veg butcher chicken". Both come with just the right amount of green leaves and tomatoes, and a great selection of vegan dressings, including vegan mayo. My boyfriend liked the food and would recommend it, although not with particular excitement (he's not often super enthusiastic about food to be fair), particularly the "beef", as he thought the "chicken" had a slightly funny texture. For me both definitely tasted nice but was uncannily like meat so I was a bit grossed out. Not sure I'd recommend to long-term vegetarians/vegans for that reason. If there were loads of vegan cafes around it might not be our first choice, but given that there aren't so many places in Leeds I'd probably try it again and see if I can get over my psychological blocks. It would be amazing if they had more vegan options that didn't include veg meat, but I guess that's their speciality so fair enough.

Pros: 3-4 vegan options and lots of veggy options, and e, Nice staff, Great decor, convenient location

Cons: No vegan/veggy food options apart from veg meat
