Whether you're a carnivore, herbivore or somewhere-inbetween-i-vore, there's no denying that the trend of veganism is sweeping across the land, and that more and more, people are looking for healthier outlets to get their scran. Standing proudly at the forefront of this movement is The Herbivore Kitchen, newly opened on Edinburgh's Clerk Street.
Already known for their monthly Supper Clubs, Melville Drive Police box and scrumptious brownies which seem to pop up at vegan food stalls across the country, the long-awaited opening of a sit-in cafe has sent a wave of rejoice across Edinburgh's Southside. Head chef Alison has honed her skills through years of experience with some of London and Edinburgh's best cake and catering companies and though petite, her menu is packed with colourful vegan-friendly delights.
Start the day with some Herbivore Cranachan pancakes, refuel with a coconut and lime slaw salad or warm your belly with a delicious three bean chilli; whatever your hunger level, there's bound to be something to suit. There's even the option to sit in for afternoon tea; at just £12 a pop, it's a nifty way to treat yourself, or your loved ones, without breaking the bank.
And the best knews yet? Bigger kitchen = bigger possibilities. The Herbivore Kitchen are available for outside catering and can now produce cakey delights en masse, so whether you've got an important 'do' on the cards or you just fancy smuggling away a crate (or ten) of those brownies, they've got you covered.
