The second and third veggie/vegan Food Heroes are the
100% Vegan Shop and The Warehouse Cafe in Digbeth Birmingham.
They are both housed in the same building, on Alison Street, Digbeth near the Bull Ring, Selfridges and Moor Street Station.
The 100% Vegan Shop is an independent one stop shop which aims to promote the vegan cause by being a good honest business.
They are passionate about all things vegan, from good honest whole food staples to the little treats that are hard to find. It was started by a couple of vegans who wanted Birmingham to have a good honest business with exciting products, promoting the vegan cause. They are based in The Friends of The Earth Warehouse building in Digbeth.
They stock, vegan alternatives to traditional products, such as cheese, meats, ice cream, dried fruits, flour, nuts, seeds, tofu hand made pasties, pies and gluten free products such as breakfast cereals, and biscuits and cakes. They also sell household products.

The Warehouse Cafe is Birmingham’s original Vegetarian restaurant. It’s independent and a must visit for any veggie or vegan or anyone who likes good healthy food.
It is based in the same building as the 100% Vegan Shop in Digbeth Birmingham and has been serving unpretentious food and a good dose of a healthy sense of humour for a many a long year.
Their healthy food is very well regarded in Birmingham, and the environment is cute and has a nice atmosphere.
The Warehouse Cafe is committed to sustainability and its core values. They recycle and use a bicycle courrier (or foot) for the majority of fresh produce that is delivered.
They are piloting a scheme to use local allotment produce gifted by friends and supporters in their resturant.
The menus caters for both vegetarian and vegan, and there are a healthy selection of vegan dishes available:)

I plan to visit The Warehouse Cafe soon to eat and do a review.
Do you have a particular favourite? It could be in Birmingham, The Midlands, or beyond. Anyone that should be mentioned, that flies the flag for vegetarians and vegans:) Let me know either in the comment box or via twitter @andydhare.

I love the Warehouse, I’ve only been a couple of times but both times it was really tasty and nice not to have to explain the concept of being vegan to anyone!
If you like Chinese, cafe soya has an amazing vegetarian/vegan selection, very heavy on the tofu and soya “meat” (the prawns and chicken are worryingly similar to the real thing!). You do have to be vigilant for errant egg though!
Thank you Sally for your comment. I haven’t been to Cafe Soya for a number of years, but I have it on my list for future reviews. Thanks for the heads up on the mock meat substitutes. Like tofu, but not sure of others to be honest. Yes, the Warehouse is a star, and I look forward to revisiting it soon.
Take care. Andyx
