Hi ya all! The 1st of June I'll be visiting Sheffield with to friends, to see John Simm play in The Crucible. We're taking this chance to go walking in the Peak District and have a nice girls' weekend out. Now where do I take my omni friends to have a nice vegan dinner & lunch? Your help will be much appreciated!

How fortuitous, I'm going to Sheffield next month so any recommendations would be extra-helpful.

Not the Blue Moon. I went once and it was dull food, not clearly labelled, busy and rushed and generally poor.

So, where have you eaten? Did you try The Blue Moon anyway (there doesn't seem to be much else)? Any recommendations? I would be MUCH obliged! :)

If you don't object to eating in a pub, try the Fat Cat, it does vegan, vegetarian, meat and gluten free. I went with a mixture of people and everyone was happy. The vegan food is lovely and there's a real cat as well.

I live in Sheffield, and I can warmly recommend Homemade http://www.homemade-sheffield.co.uk/ The food is really good, the atmosphere is great, it has a little shop with local products... Big thumbs up!

My experience with the Blue Moon Cafe is that the food is okay, but not brilliant. Not been to the Fat Cat since going vegan but having read the post above, I'll definitely check it out soon.

I'm going for a weekend in mid-October and will let you know if I find anywhere worth going to, although I suspect we may be cooking rather than eating out.

Also keen to hear any recommendations :)

I'd add Saigon 68 to the list (just changed name from Pho 68 incase anyone been before) can get set veg menus if want a massive feast (ask for no egg in soup, not had the noodles before so may need to check if get them) or do a cheap lunch deal where you can get a mountain of salt and chili tofu. have a website here with the full menu http://saigon68.co.uk/index.html

If you're looking for a meal on the go then can get a good falafel wrap/salad bowl from Fanoush (one in centre, one nearby on same rd as saigon 68) but they don't have any seating.

Pure on Raw is also a good place:

...and if you join the Sheffield Animal Friends group on Facebook they organise vegan meet ups/meals at various places in the city!

These look great. Thanks. A few people have recommended Blue Moon to me but it doesn't seem popular with PPKers.

Phaigon 68 had HUGE portions when I went there. It did mean I got a doggy bag.

So we went to Sheffield...
We went to the Blue Moon Cafe on Saturday. It was VERY busy. I had the vegan hot chocolate which was awesome (£2.50) & a vegan chocolate raspberry torte (£2.45) which was out of this world. (I felt the need for chocolate obviously!) My BF had a spinach & chickpea pasty which was nice.
Saturday night we went to Pure on Raw. OMG! It was a total taste sensation. It is in an unusual setting & it was very quite, although we were eating very early. We had the Sunshine Pizza & Spinach Enchilada. Both were awesome, it was the most beautiful plate of food I've ever had at a restaurant. Then we shared a mocha pie which was £7 but worth every penny. It was beautifully plated up with 2 types of ice cream & a variety of fruits.
We also bought loads of take away things too. It was SO yummy. The food did take quite a while to come, so if you go do give yourself plenty of time, to relax & enjoy.
The Blue Moon cafe torte was divine & was probably one of the best puddings I've ever eaten but the mocha pie definitely outshone it! The total cost of meal was just under £25.
We went back to Blue Moon for lunch. It is not usually open on a Sunday but it is for December. I had a tomato & red pepper bake with roast potatoes & roast veggies. My BF had Sweet potato & white cabbage satay. Both were tasty & cost & 6.65. The nice thing about this cafe is they have all the food out so you can see what you like the look of & the vegan stuff is well labelled.
I'd definitely go back to both places if I was in Sheffield again.
Thanks for the recommendations!

I'm in Sheffield for a week and need suggestions for places to eat in the evenings please :) I have the Blue Moon cafe on my list of places to try, as well as the Fat Cat and the Red Deer. Any help very much appreciated!

As an update, in the evenings we went to the Fat Cat and the Red Deer, and both did excellent vegan food (the Fat Cat was significantly on the cheaper side, but the Red Deer vegan burger was supremely delicious!)
