Review: The Coconut Tree

Followers of my Instagram will know that I’m a big fan of The Coconut Tree, on St Clement’s Street. In fact, whenever new followers send me a message asking for recommendations of where to eat, I will always tell them that the Sri Lankan bar/restaurant is my number one place to get good vegan food in Oxford.

Review: Mowgli

The atmosphere in the evening is lovely, sitting on little wooden swing seats surrounded by fairy lights. The food, while great quality, is very reasonably priced, and they’ve put customer experience at front of mind with the allergen menu provided on a clipboard with the menu as standard.

Review: Heavenly Desserts

Both new and old vegans will know that getting a good dessert when eating out is something of a rarity. Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that when it comes to pudding at local restaurants, I can be quite scathing (and I still maintain that a scoop of sorbet alone is not adequately meeting my cravings, while my friend is tucking into a rich chocolate brownie).

Review: GAIL’s Bakery

Now I work in the city centre a whole world of delicious breakfast opportunities has been opened up to me. Back in the fold of my girl friends’ bi-monthly breakfast meet, in May we went to GAIL’s on Little Clarendon Street, in Jericho, before work to see what they had to offer.
