What: cafe, bookstore, events, book clubs, etc
Although the food and drinks on offer are not 100 % vegan ( 95% vegetarian - I did spot some fish), there are vegan options, as well as gluten free options.
The food is well presented, the decor pleasant and the service friendly. I know to some it may seem odd to rave about a salad, but I must have had the best salad in ages, there. The produce was so fresh and varied. I did not leave one scrap on my plate.
You can access their food and drink menues at their website : The Bodhi Tree Cafe
As for the bookstore, their stock (in store and online) covers a fair few subjects that might interest vegans such as raw food cookery/diet, environment and sustainability, social science, health and wellbeing, philosophy, etc. My one criticism is that there seems to be a few books about vegetariansim but none on the vegan lifestyle and diet, specifically.
