With 100 locations across the UK, Coffee #1 is fast becoming one of the most popular coffee chains for Brits – but what vegan food do they do?
Recently acquired by the Caffe Nero Group, Coffee #1 has just opened up its 100th stores in Britain, with 10 others opening just in the last year. As complete Coffee #1 novices, we head into the cafe to see what they offer for vegans.
As well as a bumper list of tasty smoothies to choose from, they also have more naughtier items on the menu.
Tea Cake, Dairy-free Spread & Jam
The size of a side plate, this is a great option if you want something cheap and filling. Comes with dairy-free butter (surprising how many places offer tea cakes to vegans without anything to moisten it) and jam. All jams are vegan, they also do marmalade and Marmite which is also vegan.
Raspberry Croissant £1.70
You’ve seen it everywhere, including Caffe Nero and Costa Coffee, but it’s still a great croissant. Medium-sized, served cold and layered with raspberry jam.
Super Dark Chocolate Brownie £2.35
Brownies are almost becoming standard affair as a vegan option in non-vegan cafes these days. This one felt slightly-less straight-out-of-the-oven than a normal homemade brownie, but it was still rich & delicious.
Gluten-free Blackcurrant Crumble
It’s that little square, super sweet, the thing you see at cafes all over the UK – does the job!
This option is on their website, but we haven’t seen it before, maybe it has been discontinued. Why don’t all cafes have vegan scones – they’d go down a treat with vegans?
Vegan Meatball Wrap £4.50
Plant-based meatballs, tomato sauce, a small amount of kale, and vegan cheese. We actually prefer this wrap to the one offered at Starbucks.
We will aim to keep this guide updated as new options come out, and fill in any prices that have been missed.
