Our Top 10 | Vegan Cafés in Yorkshire

Say hello to Veganuary! Here’s ten amazing vegan places to eat across Yorkshire!
Whether you’re a committed carnivore or have been vegan long before it was popular, we are sure you will find something to tickle your taste buds at these fab vegan cafes and restaurants.


True Story, York

True Story, Vegan Cafe in York

We headed to this vegan café in the centre of York after our first Girl About Blog Squad Retreat. Safe to say, we weren’t feeling our best after the night before’s antics. The most I can usually manage on a hangover is a piece of dry toast so I was a bit apprehensive about our brunch spot of choice, but, it worked an absolute treat.

Despite the enormous amount of menu choice, both myself and Lyndsey opted for the hummus platter. And it was huge. With homemade bread. a ginormous bowl of thick homemade hummus, and salad complete with an incredible spicy dressing, it definitely soaked up the sins of the previous evening. The café itself was quirky and cool, without being overly styled and pretentious, with big plush sofas and tiger print cushions that matched the teapots. If you’re looking for a vegan café in York then we would both absolutely recommend True Story.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | Kelham Island Food Tour in “The Shoreditch of the North” – Sheffield

If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
