Last week I had a surprise invite to review the Oak Street Cafe Bar, where along with other food bloggers and local reviewers, we got treated to a fabulous lunch and some wine tasting. Housed inside Manchester Craft and Design Centre in the Northern Quarter, I never even knew the cafe (or the centre) existed until last week. And what a little gem it is.
It's not a vegan cafe, but the owner Karen Hadgett told us that much of the time, they end up serving vegan and vegetarian food, as it is what seems to sell the best there. And seeing as the majority of us at the review lunch were vegan (four out of six of us, go vegans!), the majority of the food we were indulged with was vegan, too. In fact of all the many scrumptious dishes served, there were only two of them that the vegan posse wouldn't eat, as they were vegetarian dishes.
