We were very excited before going up to Stoke-on-Trent to find out there is a veggie cafe in Hanley!
Some years before we left the area, there was a great restaurant called Dylan's until it was sold & the new owners decided to put fish on the menu...
Dylan's for us was somewhere we could only really visit on special occasions as it was quite expensive -though delicious!
Because we were in Stoke during the long bank holiday weekend, we thought we would miss out on trying out this new place, but we decided to stay a bit longer on the Wednesday & had our lunch there...
And we are so glad we did!
The Big Strawberry is fab - not only is all the food vegan, it's absolutely delicious & doesn't cost the earth!
When we arrived, we were greeted by the cafe's young owner, Charlie who's lovely - very welcoming & bubbly. We were lucky to be able to have a chat with her about veganism, etc before the cafe suddenly filled up.
There is a nice laid back atmosphere & a library of books to sit & browse through - just perfect for us!
We were thrilled to find out that we could eat everything on the menu & struggled to choose...
So Charlie offered to give us half & half of the wraps we fancied.
One half had a lovely Mexican veggie mince, topped with houmous & the other was a tasty chilli & coriander one.
This scrummy plate of food set us back £2.95!
In Cornwall it would be over £5... And not half as good!
We love that we could eat with complete confidence.
Charlie is passionate about animal welfare & is obviously as much of a foodie as we are.
She also plays the piano, so we look forward to going back & hearing her play sometime!
Very happy customers!
Thank you Charlie - we'll be back...
