London, UK: Vegan hippo in Soho
Right in the middle of Soho, this 100% vegan cafe couldn't be more central! Quirky, plant-based, friendly service and super delicious food! And the best thing is it opens really early so you could start your day with a tofu-scramble, vegan porridge or even an all-day full vegan English breakfast (yes!)! I went there in the evening but I am so coming back one morning for breakfast!
My friends took me there for dinner and we all had the pulled jackfruit burger (I just love burgers). It came with vegan cheese and kale chips and we loved it. They have a good range of comfort food but also very healthy options, take away sandwiches and salads. And when you really need a big health-kick then have one of their freshly pressed juices. Of course there are delicious vegan cakes too, one of the most popular is their Oreo cake.
That's why I like this place because it has a mixture of comfort food and really healthy options ; all very delicious and well seasoned. And the prices are also very reasonable.
So when you're in Soho next time you should check it out. You might even bump into me having dinner before hitting the bars :-)

This is deffo not your typical Soho cafe (check out the chicken and piggy behind the counter), not an over-designed expensive designer cafe, but a very friendly place that wants to make a change. The staff there are lovely too and you can tell they really believe in what they do.
Vegan hippo actually is a bit bigger than it looks, it has quite a few seating areas (inside and outside) and you can even reserve a table.
The jackfruit burger with vegan cheese and kale chips.
Little plastic animals with the table number on them are a fun and quirky touch.
