Gone are the days when it was a struggle to find plant-based treats when out shopping! Luckily for you, many of our food and beverage retailers provide delicious vegan options to cater for all.

Our guest blogger, Freya Partridge tells us the go-to places for delicious vegan treats at St Johns.

Backchich: Who doesn’t love Lebanese cuisine? From plant-based breakfasts to a vegan mezze, there are plenty of delicious options to choose from.

Subway: Recently added to the Subway menu is a vegan sub – a mouth watering six-inch or footlong sandwich with a vegetable patty and personalized toppings. You can even drizzle your sandwich with delightful sauces! Italian and Hearty Italian breads, a vegan salad and Hash Browns are also vegan-friendly.

Key Lime Coffee: If you’re craving some delicious vegan cake, this is the place to be. Grab a slice from Key Lime Coffee!

Wetherspoon – The Fall Well: If you’re looking to start your day right, Wetherspoon offers some great options for vegans, including an English breakfast. Or, if you’re looking for a healthy snack, why not try a jacket potato with vegan filling – sounds delicious, right?

Greggs: If you have not tried the world famous vegan sausage roll yet, you need to! Pop into store now to pick yours up, perfectly accompanied by a vegan-friendly drink.

The Good Catch: A fish and chip shop might not be the first place you think of when deciding where to eat vegan, but the company provides customers with a range of vegan and gluten-free pies as well as chips.

McDonalds: Although there are no certified vegan products on their menu, the fast food company offers a vegan-friendly veggie breaded goujon wrap, a vegan Happy Meal and French fries. Vegans also have the option of Hash Browns and small bags of fruit. Several dips served at the condiment counters are vegan, including ketchup.

KFC: If you’re looking for a healthy salad, pop over to KFC in the Food Court. The house salad with vegan dressing as well as the corn on the cob without butter are also suitable for vegans. The fries are cooked separately in vegetable oil.

Fork It: At this fast-food stand, customers can opt for a vegan hot dog served in a freshly baked roll.

Sainsburys: If you’re on the go and looking for a healthy lunch, Sainsburys has some great options. Why not try spicy tomato, lentil and red pepper soup, or an edamame and butter bean salad, perfect for those quick lunches.

When ordering food and drink at any of the restaurants and cafes at St Johns, we recommend that you specify to staff that you are vegan. A number of these eateries also make their food in store, so it’s best to talk to staff if you suffer from any allergies.

If you want to find the most up to date information, it’s a good idea to check the official website of the restaurant or cafe you are interested in eating at.
