A Vegan Guide to South Devon
Seeds 2 tons
This self-service coffee shop has a fixed price of £9.95, allowing you to choose as many as you like from the food bowls.
Among the offerings on my visit were fried noodles, carrots and beets, lentil dhal and a selection of breads.
Seeds 2 was recently picked up by Katie, who plans to spin things along the same lines.
Open: Mon-Sat 11am-3pm; 40 High Street, Totnes; @Seeds2totnes
The Wild Fig Deli & Cafe
Although not entirely vegan, there are plenty of choices here, such as the salted tofu pie (£9.25). Two soups were pumpkin and squash with coconut, as well as sweet potato, squash and green lentils.
I had mashed avocado with chilli flakes and spiced butter beans on sourdough toast (£8.45). For dessert, I had a chocolate and zucchini cake.
Open: Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; 53 Fore Street, Totnes; thewildfig.co.uk
Encouraged by her daughters, nutritionist Emma opened Bubblelicious.
Inside, the decor is bright and cheerful and the menu is 100% vegan. Choose from milk and fruit teas, all with a choice of popping boba.
I enjoyed the coconut milk tea with passion fruit boba – very refreshing.
Open: Mon-Sat 10am-6pm (closed Wednesday), Sun 10am-4pm; 3 Wellington Street, Teignmouth; getbubblelicious.co.uk
