Amazing! Let me know if you need a place to stay - I should have a spare room by then if my flatmate moves out as planned :)

Thanks Imogen! Sadly it doesn't look like it'll be happening this month, it'll either be next month or not at all :-(

Sadly I can't make the Bia Bistrot meetup myself as I have a meeting in London on that day :( It's down on the list as I place I really want to visit though!

When I visited Edinburgh, I ate at Henderson's a few times, David Bann one night, and the baked potato shop. All were good in their own way.
Vegan haggis is delicious.

I've just heard the amazing news that Edinburgh is about to get its first pizza company introducing vegan cheese to the menu!

All I know is that it's a rice milk cheese and they found it through consulting with PETA. It's really good!

Hey, any kid-friendly veggie places in Edinburgh? Preferably something that has lots of veggie-intense dishes or something not centred around meat and cheese analogues (which none of us like other than veggie sausages for some reason). Am I asking for too much? We used to just go to Wetherspoon's, but they only have that freedom salad now other than on Thursday Curry Night.

Laughing at the baked potato comments earlier in this thread!

There is now a branch of Las Iguanas in Edinburgh! They have a vegan menu and I've never had a bad meal at the Newcastle branch.

Henderson's is great (and also the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Scotland and second oldest in the UK). I often see families in there, particularly during the daytime.

Waitrose Morningside has the salted caramel Almond Dream only. Comely Bank are on the list, and Waitrose told me they were supposed to get it, but when I called earlier, they had no stock and no record to show they'd be getting it in anytime soon. I'll update if I find it at the Comely Bank store since I work over there.

This isn't an issue specific to vegans (except that maybe it will reduce the number of animals injured on the roads) so I hope no one minds me posting about it.

City of Edinburgh Council are considering changing speed limits to 20mph in many streets. This would be great for increasing safety, particularly for children, the elderly and the disabled and for cyclists and pedestrians. It would also make areas more pleasant to walk and cycle in. The council says on the FAQ page that car "journey times will not significantly increase".

It would be great if people could complete the questionnaire here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/20mphSpeedLimit
It is very quick and easy; all you have to do is tick a few boxes, though you can add comments if you want to. The only identifying information they need is your post code. It will accept a non-Edinburgh postcode (a friend in Glasgow filled it in) but I'm sure they'll take the views of people from the city more seriously. Unless you frequently travel to Edinburgh and say so in the comments.

There are FAQs, a map of proposed streets and background information here: http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph
And Spokes (the cycling charity) has some information here: http://www.spokes.org.uk/wordpress/2014 ... r-say-now/

The consultation closes in just a few days, on the 13th of October.
