Vegan Food in Leicester

Over the past few years veganism has increased in popularity with dedicated restaurants and cafes popping up in towns and cities everywhere. Now here’s a fact you may not know…the word ‘vegan’ was coined in Leicester by vegan activist Donald Watson and his then girlfriend Dorothy Morgan in 1944!

To celebrate World Vegan month and the fantastic food variety a vegan lifestyle can bring, we thought we’d tell you about the vegan food places in Leicester. So here we go…
