Doing it broccoli

More than just sourcing nifty, vegan friendly finds, Do It Broccoli’s warriors have been shouting about finds of their own by nominating eateries that have catered for a vegan lifestyle beautifully.

Not ones to keep this information a closely guarded secret, we have sent these nominated businesses a glorious and wonderful sticker to display on their window, along with a letter explaining who nominated them and why, and just saying a humongous THANKS! So if you see them out and about on your travels, you know they have come recommended!

Got someone to recommend? They don’t have to be exclusively vegan, but do need to have gone above and beyond a bowl of chips, a meal from their menu with most of the ingredients removed or be somewhere that hasn’t left you bored or hungry! Just head here and we’ll get a sticker sent out to them ASAP.

So Yummy 159 High Street, Ryde, Isle of Wight, PO33 2HT “I was made to feel very welcome as a vegan, even though it is not a vegan cafe, the lady who served me said she wanted to make sure all dietary requirements were catered for. There was a nice choice of plant milks and many of the items on the menu had a vegan version alongside its non-vegan counterpart.”

“This lady has gone out of her way to cater for everyone. She remembers all her regular customers and even saves seats for the more regular if she knows where they prefer to sit! Their food is always delicious, usually homemade, and it’s a perfect stop off when we walk the dog. Pooch is always offered water and a biscuit for good behaviour before we leave. We recommend their sos mix veggie burger with vegan cheese and homemade coleslaw and sweet potato fries!”
