A restaurant has changed the menu at one of its branches to make it 100 per cent vegan.

Foodilic has outlets in North Street and Dean Street, Brighton, and has gone vegan at the latter after noticing a gap in the market.

A spokeswoman said: “There wasn’t a vegan restaurant in the area and the vegan population of Brighton and Hove is so high that it seemed like the logical thing to do, especially as our menu was already 80 per cent vegan.

“A few customers came especially for the meat, but one man ordered a vegan breakfast for the first time and was very impressed by it.

“We’ve had quite a few vegan customers come in since we changed our menu over and we’re hoping we’ll get more because not a lot of people know about the change.”

Louisa Alexandra, a 26-year-old from Brighton, said: “It’s great they have gone vegan, helping the planet and attracting people who love animals.

“I’m so pleased they’re listening to the demand as I’d always want to support vegan places more than others and their food is always refreshing, filling but mostly absolutely delicious.”

Foodilic serves vegan breakfasts from 8am every day and all its food is available to eat in or take away.

It also has hot dishes made to order, as well as a variety of pasta.

A salad buffet is on offer for £7.50, and includes crushed potato, giant cous cous, coleslaw and roasted vegetables.

Brunch is available until 4pm, and includes avocado toast, vegan scrambled eggs, and a full English breakfast.

Vegan cakes are also on offer, including lemon, chocolate, and carrot.
