This week I decided to do a few theme nights – Thursday is burger night, and Friday is ‘sticky fingers’ night; these were advertised on social media and sold out in 3 hours, so I shall definitely be doing more next week! Keep your eyes on the EYG facebook and instagram for timely info.
Sunday roasts will be every sunday. If you would like to book in for this week please email email@example.com so we can arrange a collection time for you. It’s filling up fast already!
Breakfast / brunch will also be featuring next week, however this will be different to the usual menu, mainly because of supply issues. So far I can tell you that Cwtch rolls will be making an appearance, and also as a breakfast option there will be a tofu hash (chunky tofu, smoked paprika, broccoli, red onion, spinach, and so forth) with forest bakery sourdough [or gf bread].
Some of you may know that our cat Vanjie was expecting; she gave birth on saturday to three beautiful little babies… in my wardrobe! This was a really beautiful thing for us in our home, especially in the current climate. So i just wanted to share a little bit of our joy with you 🙂
I just wanted to say a very emphatic and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us through kind, compassionate emails, messages, advice, calls; and to everyone who has bought a voucher through Wriggle’s Indie Kitty campaign (see more at: Wriggle Bristol ) that you can redeem at the cafe when we are back in ‘normal’ times!
As with most people, my week began with a surge of despair and panic… but now, thanks to the overwhelming support you are all showing for EYG, we are starting to piece things together and carve out a way forward.
As of Thursday 26th March, we will be offering takeaway / collection brunches and evening meals, you can order on the website or over the phone. I have decided not to use delivery services such as deliveroo / uber eats because there is a hefty joining fee, plus commision of 35% – and I don’t want to charge customers extortionate prices, especially at a time like this!
Hopefully we will be setting up a limited delivery service the week after, for people’s lunches and evening meals.
Tomorrow’s Mothering Sunday Roast has sold out – thank you all so much! I hope you will enjoy it 🙂 Just to reassure you, all the packaging is either compostable or recyclable (and also you can pop it in the microwave, if you do that.)
TSHIRTS! The extremely talented Berwyn Mure has designed an EYG tshirt for us, which we will be taking pre-orders for on the website next week. You can collect in person when they arrive in 7 weeks’ time, or we can ship to you for a little extra. It’s such a beautiful design – we hope you like it, and if you buy one, wear it with tons of pride knowing you have supported your local vegan cafe <3
As I’m sure you’re aware, sharing public spaces and being in a crowd isn’t really the best idea at the moment. Therefore EYG will not be open this week (save for Mothering Sunday roast pre-orders / collection – more on that to follow).
As of next week we will be providing take-away / collection for both Brunch and Evening meals. Food can be ordered directly through our website. I am currently designing a new menu and painstakingly adding all our food to an online catalogue! I don’t want to use deliveroo or uber eats because they take 30-35% of each sale… which means I would have to put the prices up even more!
Mothering Sunday: we will be making roasts available for collection on Sunday at either 1pm or 4pm, if you would like to order a roast please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org, we have a limit of 20 per time slot.
Wriggle have very kindly set up an ‘Indie Kitty’ voucher system if you wish to support us through this closure time. Vouchers are between £5-£40 and the intention is that you will redeem them in the future, once we are allowed to have you the cafe again! If you are going to very kindly buy a voucher – thank you – it will most definitely help to scrape us through what is potentially an extremely risky time for our business. Your support means everything.
