Being vegan in Cornwall is getting easier and easier to achieve as cafes, restaurants and destinations respond to the rise in veganism across the county.
If you are coming here on holiday this year, be sure to order or read online the updated vegancornwall.org.uk guide to eating vegan, check out the cornwallvegans.uk website and ask to join one of the groups on face book covering the area.
Check out the recent stunning article by Abby Driver now available to read online. Seen this one before? This well written and comprehensive piece was published in June’s edition of Cornwall Life magazine.
We’ve had coverage UK wide just this week, lively, informative and sure to bring the visitors flocking, read about the new-look Newquay from Chantal Da Silva in The Independent.
Chantal writes, “The first time I planned a trip to Newquay, friends and coworkers were quick to warn me: “It’s a party town.” Like many Britons, they conjured images of streets packed with stag- and hen-dos and beaches bestrewn with hungover students recovering from a night out.
“Perhaps that’s why I was so surprised to discover a tranquil town so different from the one described when I arrived in Newquay. Clean beaches awaited me, dotted with a handful of surfers; I spotted more independent restaurants and bars than dance clubs and the frequency of the town seemed far more in tune with the ebb and flow of the waves of Fistral Beach than the booming soundscape of a busy nightclub.” read more
Chantal’s writing takes us on a surf lovers journey around Newquay’s changing sands, from the Tom Thumb and Jam Jar to the Green Heart Cafe, a favourite amongst vegan travellers and surfers alike!
Sprout not only offers the best of whole and healthy food, but a relaxing, cosy cafe off the main street and instore events for health, wellbeing and healing, nutrition and lifestyle.
We caught up with Danielle in darkest Pool, near Camborne and she told us the secrets of Vood Food..
“I would like to introduce to you my vendor business: Vood Bar. We are a brand new venture and all of our products are 100% vegan friendly. We are a mobile catering outlet and you’ll find us at local events, festivals and weddings. We pride ourselves on our cooking; all of our scrumptious food is homemade from scratch and we believe this shines through in the quality and taste of our products.”
During test events and tasting evenings, we found that our vegan outlook is just as popular with non-vegans as it is with our ‘fundamentalists’. Our delicious meals are bursting with flavours and there really is something for everyone!
Customers can also purchase hot and cold beverages with their food including fabulous cocktails as we are fully licenced! We always aim to showcase around 5 different cocktails in order to maximise choice. They of course are 100% vegan-friendly too and are freshly made to order.
We are very excited about our journey and look forward to sharing this venture with our fellow ‘Voodies’..
