Wholesome cafe but desperately needs to improve its labels

This is a lovely, popular cafe selling some good homemade salads, cakes and pastries however despite the fact it is mostly vegan, few things are properly labelled to indicate this.

Pros: Mostly vegan, Organic homemade food

Cons: Very limited seating, Vegan food not labelled, Allergens not labelled

Great take away

Ripe is great! I love their coffee and mushroom sausage rolls, my wife loves their salad bowls and sourdough.
My profile picture is of part of a mural on their wall... Not that affects my review but it's a lovely shop with friendly staff and loads of vegan options and locally sourced ingredients.

Pros: Great coffee, Healthy options, Vegan treats

Cons: Closed on Monday

Lovely food

Mostly vegan, I had a pasty, a veggie bread roll, brownie, and a cookie dough ball - All were delicious.

A really nice looking cafe, inside and out, with friendly staff.

Pros: Nearly all vegan

Delicious vegan cakes!

This is a beautiful little cafe with such a nice atmosphere and really friendly staff that gave us a warm welcome.

Great Find For Vegan Lunch

Vegan options in Ulverston are few so it was a relief to get a table inside Ripe which has now moved to premises on the main street. Ordered two salad pots of potato, runner beans with spinach pesto and a carrot, spring onion and peanut salad topped with falafel. Absolutely delicious. There were lots of vegan cakes too. Lovely little place too for chilling out...all packaging and cutlery is biodegradable.

Wide range of vegan cakes

Great tasting range of vegan cakes and pies in a nice bakery with some seating. Some non-vegan items so do check.
