Doing Veganuary? Cambridge is the place to go

Planning to take the plant-based pledge this Veganuary? Visit these Cambridge venues and you’re in for a delicious month. . .

The Tipsy Vegan

Located right on the River Cam in the popular Quayside area of Cambridge, The Tipsy Vegan features dishes from around the world. “Designed with sharing in mind, we offer an extensive selection of small plates, sharing boards and side dishes alongside superb desserts, late-night light bites, weekend brunch and Sunday roasts,” say the team. “Our drinks list has been designed to perfectly complement our food offering, adding a sense of occasion to every meal. Expect exclusive cocktail creations using house infusions and fermentations, with as much effort put into our low and no-alcohol range.”

Stem & Glory

Having arrived in the city in 2016, it could be said that this fab eatery paved the way for plant-based dining in Cambridge. Slap bang next to Cambridge Station, the new site is the perfect pit stop when you are out and about and also a lovely destination for lunch and evening dining. With eat-in, click-and-collect and delivery all available, it’s the place to go for your Veganuary breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or grab one of their brand new range of cook-at-home ready meals on your way home!

With a company slogan of “greater impact with every bite”, DoppleGanger founder Alfy Fowler describes their burgers - which come in seven mouth-watering options along with a fantastic range of sides - as “delicious food that happens to be plant-based”.

Starting out as a pop-up three years ago, Dopple proved so popular, bricks and mortar was a natural next step. Not sure what to order? You can’t beat a classic Dopple burger: plant-based patty, vegan ch*ese, caramelised onion marmalade, portobello mushroom in balsamic glaze, lettuce, tomato and homemade ranch sauce, all housed in a squidgy brioche bun.
