The Handlebar Cafe and Kitchen have a number of vegan options on their brunch menu, savoury or sweet, to choose from, so we enjoyed a meal on a little table out the front of the cafe in the sun.
There’s a new community café in Oxford and I’m happy to report it’s on my side of town! Cafe Kraken is a welcoming, relaxed food spot on Holloway, East Oxford with a focus on sustainability, therefore naturally an emphasis on plant-based food.
My main course, the vegan thali, was honestly one of the nicest things I’ve eaten in a long time. As the menu explains, ‘according to Indian food custom, a proper meal is a perfect balance of all the six flavours sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy’ and this meal really did deliver on that!
