First Review by Schulie

Intimate, cosy cafe with kind food - Edit

Had been looking forward to November so I could visit this pop up. Love Alington House as a venue and very fond of the cute cafe/bar area. It maintains a traditional tea shop, warmed by the smell of delicious vegan food. So cheap (£5 for a meal and a tea) and food came super fast. My friend and I shared a table with a lovely local older gentleman who enthralled us with tales of his Egyptian heritage. I'm GF and vegan and loved the cauliflower cheese, mac&cheese and nacho combo. All round fab idea and vibe :)

Good food, but "too" popular! - Edit

First of all, the desserts are always amazing. No wonder they're always (nearly) sold out when I arrive! We've often had to wait for a table (and we're just two people), but we were told take-out was always an option. I've also tried the seitan steak which was delicious but the chips and salad were perhaps slightly bland (which I'm completely fine with, but just stating it for the record). Nonetheless, the food is ridiculously cheap and delicious - but I'd really appreciate a few extra tables next time!

Pros: Very affordable food, Good quality, Variety of vegan desserts (and delicious)

Cons: Hard to find table / often have to wait for one , Not enough mains sometimes (b/c too popular)

Squeezy does it - Edit

A once a month vegan pop up, we visited for the first time today (my partner is vegetarian, I'm vegan). We didn't get to experience it properly as it was so busy; we didn't want to wait for a table as it was very hot - the cafe is very small so there weren't any free tables when we got there. It's obviously popular as there were people queuing outside for tables. We could get cheeseburgers to takeaway (the other dishes, nachos and seitan steak, couldn't be taken out) and they were tasty. We got 3 different cakes to eat at home and they were as good as they looked! I think the food would have been better if we could have sat down and had the full works (normally there'd be salad and stuff) but never mind!
It had been open for about an hour when we arrived and the chocolate cake was almost gone, so I think it's a toss up between getting in quick and waiting til the lunchtime rush finishes!

Pros: All vegan, some gluten free, Reasonably priced (£4 for all mains), Should be appealing to non veggie companions

Cons: Be prepared to wait for a table
