Très sympa !

Style diner américain vintage où on s'y sent bien. L'équipe et la gérante sont ultra sympathiques, on est vraiment bien accueillis et le service est rapide.
Le fish and chips vegan est original, les frites sont très bonnes et la sauce tartare maison est délicieuse.

Le twixit en dessert c'est de la bombe atomique !!!

Conseil: pensez à réserver, c'est petit et vite rempli

Pros: L'accueil, La nourriture, Le style

Cons: Un peu petit

Not the best in Caen

The staff were very polite and helpful when we arrived and explained the options for veggies and vegans. For vegans at breakfast the only choice was beans on toast with no spread. The toast wasn’t toast, it was warm bread. Coffee wasn’t great either. Despite it not being busy the empty plates sat in front of us for 20 minutes.
There are better options in Caen (but Dollys does open earlier)

Pros: Limited vegan options , Poor quality

Cons: Really nice waiters

Good food

Pub Omnivore mais choix vegan et vg clairement indiqué. Très rare en province.
Grande salle, beaucoup de décorations de bric et de broc. Produits bio et vegan sur la carte.

Alcools et boissons softs.
"Happy hippie" (plat vegan): Brochette de tofu et légumes grillés à l'huile, Chips de manioc au sésame noir 16€.
Très parfumé et très bon.
Pour les gros appétits il est nécessaire de commander une entrée (houmous 7.50€) ou un dessert, comme le vegan cheese cake 6.90€
La nourriture est bonne mais les prix sont excessifs pour les quantités servies et la province. On dirait les prix parisiens.
Accepte les animaux.

Omnivore pub/restaurant with vegan and vegetarian options clearly indicated, which is rare in province.
Big restaurant room with a lot of ragtag ornamentation. Organic and vegan dishes in the menu.
Alcohols and soft drinks.
Dish : "Happy Hippie" : Tofu and vegetables skewer, Manioc and black sesame crisps. 16 €. Very flavoured and tasty.
When you are a good eater, it's necessary to order a starter (Houmous 7.50€) or a dessert as the vegan cheese cake 6.90€.
The food is good but prices are unreasonable regarding the size of portions and the location (province). It seems parisian prices.
This place accepts animals !

Pros: good food - bonne cuisine, choix vegan clair -vegan options clearly indicated, Accepte les animaux ! - Accept animals !

Cons: petites portions - small portion, prix excessifs - unreasonable prices

Wide range of good food

The menu at Le Dolly's is impressive, with a wide range of veg*n options that can be made vegan relatively easily. I had a burger with chips which was good and filling, if not the best burger I'd ever tasted, and there were even a few vegan desserts. Definitely a good choice for vegan comfort food.

Pros: Lots of space, Helpful staff

Cons: Not all vegan, Some dishes could do with more flavour

Super repas !

Le décor est super, l'ambiance anglaise est chaleureuse. La nourriture est vraiment bonne et il y a du choix végétarien, et même quelques options véganes ! Le choix végane reste limité mais il a le mérite d'exister, c'est déjà plus qu'appréciable !

Pros: Options véganes, Super décor, Service agréable

Cons: Seulement quelques options véganes ?

Miam Miam Myummy

Le Dolly's is a perfect place to have lunch, dinner or a tea break in the afternoon ! :)
They think about everyone, from babies to grannies, from meat-eaters to vegans. They often renew their menu and it's always delicious ! Obviously, I would love them to not cook meat but they were probably the first to really consider the vegetarian and then vegan needs. And it means already a looot !
The staff is really natural, sometimes too much because you could suffer the bad mood of some of them but that doesn't last so much. They have this little craziness that makes the place "comme à la maison" ! :) By the way, you can eat in a sofa as in a tiny table surrounded by thousands of vintage stuffs that you want to look, touch, read ! It's a little museum haha!

It misses one thing to me to make that place perfect : follow the seasons in the day menues. Last winter, there were a aubergine-tomatoes-other vegetables crumble, and I think this is too bad...

See you soon for a Happy Hippy ! :P

Pros: The place, The people, The food

Cons: The Meat, Not following the seasons

I Like...

I ate a lot of times in this restaurant. Serves mostly non veg food and proposes some veg/vegan dishes clearly marked in the menu. Dishes are huge so no need for a starter. Desserts are very huge as well, very good but a bit too sugared. Lot of very good drinks with soy milk. British style decorated with club armchairs, cosy and nice atmosphere. Better to book in advance for the dinner, this is one of the few restaurants around with great atmosphere and which opens almost whole year.
I definitely recommend it.

Pros: nice atmosphere, good food

Cons: almost no change in the menu

Delicious food, great atmosphere

Everything on the menu is clearly marked as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free when these apply. Most veg items can be made vegan.

I had the Cheeky Devil, which was AMAZING. Definitely one of the top 10 burgers I've ever had.

Portions are large and filling, extensive selection on the menu, daily specials, drinks, and lots of desserts, which includes a vegan upside-down cheesecake (which was also quite good).

I'd definitely go here again.

Pros: Clearly-labeled vegan items, Vegan desserts

Cons: Serves meat, Lots of smokers on the patio
