November is vegan month and we’re on the lookout for great restaurants. One we’ve found recently is the Super Natural Vegetarian and Vegan Café in Newcastle. This eatery and coffee house is a cosy spot tucked away in Upper Princess Square, on the same site and paying homage to ‘Supernatural’, a popular Tyneside vegetarian restaurant in the 70s and 80s.
Having only opened this year we were eager to see what the menu had to offer. I was delighted that the first thing you’re greeted with is the bright colours of a fresh salad bar. All main meals come with a bowl and the opportunity for you to help yourself! For lighter meals, choose a panini, sandwich or jacket potato with a variety of fillings.
All the food is made from scratch and dishes come from around the world, with the menu highlighting what is vegan and gluten free. We tucked into spicy falafels with hummus and tomato relish, as well as ‘fish’ and chips. The ‘fish’ was created with a white wine and lemon juice soaked tofu, wrapped in seaweed and fried in batter, accompanied with homemade chips and mushy peas.
Pairing these delicious meals with the incredible choice from the salad bar meant we were too stuffed for dessert but the relaxing atmosphere begged for a coffee. Finishing on a soy latte was the perfect end to this meal and from the looks of the cakes on offer, we will certainly be back to give them a try too!
