Lovely community - Edit

Wonderful shop, cafe and community area. The speakeasy is great and can be used to host events. I've volunteered here since I moved to Sheffield and you really get to know all kinds of people. Fresh fruit and veg mostly organic and local where possible. Great selection of vegan snacks such as pastries, wraps and cake for takeaway can be hot or cold and hot drinks available for takeaway too, or you can sit in and have a natter! Often out of date food goes free as well! What more could you want. Really down to earth, friendly people working here who will always help you out with whatever they can.

I also get the biweekly veg box which is a great way for a lazy student to get her vitamins!

I highly recommend the above video its full of veg puns and the witty veg box delivery cycle team!

a great cafe - Edit

Situated in rundown Burngreave, this is a treasure house, all day vegan breakfast is just 2.50, so please go buy it and try the vegan carrot cake too if you can.

Pros: cheap, vegan options, nice staff

An ethical gem - Edit

I really like New Roots and go there often mainly for pasties from the deli especially as it's so close to Sheffield uni - I'm always recommending it to friends. It specialises in Fairtrade stuff and also has fruit and veg (not from halfway across the world) and some books, hand made cards and toiletries as well. They also run a charity to put up destitute asylum seekers and have a donation box for that, as well as petitions for good causes on the counter. It's always bright and cheerful with posters and ethical cartoons (plus Calvin and Hobbes which is always good) and friendly staff! Their deli has some really tasty veggie/vegan pasties/wraps (not homemade but from nice veggie companies Forest foods and Saker) and flapjack/crumble snacks as well as a range of cakes which are only about 80p for a decent sized piece which always goes down a treat-some of them are always vegan,choc ornage being my favourite. They also have a fridge with some chilled veggie foods. The newest feature of the shop is the 'Speakeasy cafe' downstairs where you can take your pasty/cake to relax on a big sofa with a cd player and ethical magazines and a random assortment of books at your disposal as well,and a toilet out back. They do cheap teas including herb/fruit ones too (only about 40p!). Well worth a look however long you're in Sheffield for although it's not right in the city centre,it's out just past the University of Sheffield.

Pros: Cheap plus student discount, Ethical policies, Chill out 'cafe' room downstairs

Cons: Not totally vegan, 'Cafe' room uses disposables

Fantastic - Edit

Wonderful and cheap wholefood and eco products.

Lovely pasties and veggie lunch time treats. Very cheap and manned by friendly volunteers.

Also worth attending for the cheap chocolate bars and the lovely fresh veg.

Many a time I used this place in my student days and the student discount came in handy too.
