poor vegetarian-vegan choice - Edit

Baffled that an arts menu has such a poor choice of vegetarian food. The venue is good but all there was on the menu for vegans during a February snowstorm was a salad for £9.50.

New menu :( - Edit

This cafe always had a vegan option in the mains but I went the other day and there wasn't one :((( Very disappointed, all there seemed to be was a salad and the soup of the day - soup was very nice in all fairness but it isn't really the best for an evening meal, especially since there always has been a vegan main :( whyyyyy Tyneside

Very limited choice - Edit

Having read the previous reviews I knew vegan options would be limited but was going to get the roasted vegetable wrap - but it wasn't on the menu when I went mid-week.

Vegan options are limited to almond porridge (at any time of the day), Asian salad with tofu and tofu scramble - but when I went they'd run out of tofu. The salad was also expensive. There's also a fruit smoothie and juice of the day.
Strangely, they have beetroot falafel on the menu but it's vegetarian, not vegan.

The regular bread isn't vegan although I think the sourdough is.

In the end I oordered fries (a side dish) - which were delicious - and a hot drink with soya milk. It's not a bad place but wasn't work the effort of a special visit. It also did smell somewhat of meat inside.

It would be great if they could add some vegan choices to the menu, e.g. vegan pancakes with syrup or fruit, a vegan bread basket, and a vegan wrap.

Pros: Nice food , Friendly, helpful staff , Wheelchair accessible

Cons: Very few vegan choices , Runs out of tofu, Faint smell of cooking meat

Basic for vegans - Edit

Nice place with a good atmosphere but limited vegan choice. All we could have was a roast vegetable ciabatta. The drink selection is good, we just had a couple of Italian beers but there's plenty of variety if you want anything else.

Part of the Furniture - Edit

Having grown up in the North East of England and been aware of the Tyneside Cinema as a kind of retro place where film buffs would to go to watch cult movies in the 80s and 90s, I was most interested to see it on Happy Cow. Only a few years ago the cinema was very close to extinction. Now, it's a thriving heartbeat of a place where people who would like to think they are cool want to be seen. We thought we'd give it a go. On Saturday 8th October 2016 it was absolutely bustling. This is good to see. There was even a baby shower in progress and staff were obviously busy. The beer and wine are clearly vegan labelled as well as the food. Unfortunately, on a Saturday the only vegan choice was a chargrilled vegetable ciabatta with coriander hummus. We shared this with fries. More vegan options are available during the week. Not somewhere I would rush to go back to for food but the Tyneside Cinema is an important part of city heritage and it's good to see it doing well and here to stay for the longterm.

Pros: OK for vegans, Vegan wines , Vegan craft beers

Cons: Very busy at weekends, Meat is served
