New Year, Same Brunch: Veganuary Has Never Tasted So Good!

A life without Brunch?! Absolutely not. 

Kicking off 2023 with a flying start? Celebrating Veganuary and introducing healthier habits doesn't mean you have to give up possibly the best thing in life: BRUNCH. Full of tasty, vegan-friendly dishes - our Brunch menu is perfect for celebrating a new start to a new year! 

Ready for a run-down of some our faves?


Avocado & Pea Smash 

Our Avocado & Pea Smash has quickly become a fan favorite on our brunch menu at BEAR. This delicious and healthy dish is made with avocado and protein-rich peas, seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, and served on top of toasted sourdough bread. It's the perfect combination of creamy, crunchy, and flavorful, and it's sure to satisfy those brunchy cravings!

But why did we decide to add peas to our avocado toast? Well, as you may know, avocados have a large carbon footprint due to the amount of water and energy needed to grow them. By adding peas to our Avocado & Pea Smash, we're able to create a tasty and sustainable alternative to traditional avocado toast. Peas add an extra boost of protein, flavor and texture, and they have a much lower impact on the environment.

So not only is our Avocado & Pea Smash delicious and satisfying, it's also an eco-friendly choice that you can feel good about. We're sure it will become one of your new favorites too!

Falafel, hummus, citrus slaw, gem lettuce and cucumber, all wrapped up tightly in  a fresh flour tortilla. Get wrapped up and ready to roll for Veganuary with this lil' beaut!

 Bubble & Squeak Cakes


If you're a fan of classic comfort food, you'll LOVE our Bubble & Squeak Cakes. Made fresh in-store daily with a blend of crispy potato, savoy cabbage and mint, they're served with smoky chipotle ketchup, black bean and corn salsa, pink onions and a sprinkle of mixed herbs for good measure. They're the perfect lil' vegan twist on a brunch classic.



No brunch is complete without a tasty drink, and we've got you covered. Our Matcha Lattes are served with non-dairy milk as standard and are chock-full of antioxidants for that little extra pick-me-up!

Matcha is a special type of green tea that is grown and produced in Japan. Unlike regular green tea, which is made be steeping leaves in hot water, Matcha is made be grinding the whole tea leaves into a fine powder. Matcha is typically prepared by mixing the powder with water to create a smooth paste, which we then top with your choice of freshly steamed mylk.

 Iced Matcha


Cheeky lil' menu hack: we also serve Matcha Lattes over ice - something to bear in mind as those warmer days approach (hopefully sooner rather than later)!

And, of course, all of the coffees we lovingly brew in any of our stores can be served with your choice of oat, coconut or soya non-dairy alternatives and we'll NEVER charge extra for these. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy their favourite brew, fairly.
