An increased demand for vegan dishes has led one of New Zealand’s largest and fastest growing café brands to expand its menu – only months after introducing its first vegan dishes. The Coffee Club New Zealand is introducing five new items as it releases its first vegan menu. The new menu is available now and includes:
Vegan Rosti Stack
Homemade potato rosti, baby spinach, smashed avocado & peas, balsamic mushrooms.
Loaded Veggie Ciabatta
Toasted ciabatta with balsamic mushrooms, caramelised onion, roasted red capsicum, baby spinach, aioli & cheese. Served with chips.
Tortilla base, Napoli sauce, roasted red capsicum, bruschetta mix, mushrooms, cheese, baby spinach.
“We had a lot of positive feedback when we introduced vegan options to the menu earlier this year,” says Andy Lucas, Co-Director & Marketing Manager. “A number of people are looking to improve their diet and eat more plant based foods, and as a result we have introduced this new vegan menu.”
“There was lots of input from our vegan customers on the dishes, we now have more items on our menu that appeal to a wider range of tastes,” adds Andy. “Vegan and vegetarian options are continually growing in popularity, people are more conscious of what they eat – regardless of whether they identify as a vegan or vegetarian.”
The new dishes will accompany the existing Chia Seed Pot with Coconut & Almond, Hummus & Smashed Pea Open Sourdough and Crispy Tofu salad.
