Lincoln is best known for its Cathedral, castle and steep hill and is also known as the home of the tank.
But what does this city offer vegans? Katy Schofield gives us her insider knowledge…
Where to find vegan food in Lincoln
The Angel Coffee House
Angel Coffee House is a quaint coffee shop situated within Old Vestry Hall, with a luscious mini garden in the front. They have a small menu, but what they do offer packs a punch, with plenty of vegan options both sweet and savoury.
Everything is freshly prepared each morning and they use local bakeries, which is wonderful to see; small supporting small, locally.
The menu is ever-evolving, based on what local bakeries can bring in, but they offer breakfast and lunch bagels, cakes, cookies, biscuits and sandwiches, to name a few.
They also have a wide coffee range, both hot and cold (one may or may not have lashings of Biscoff in).
The service is always friendly and the setting is incredible, a wonderful mix of old and new.

Carholme is a popular hotspot for fish and chips. This is not the best vegan fish and chips I’ve ever had, but the variety for vegans is by far the best.
Owner Nick Avraam is always pushing the boundaries to ensure an equal balance of meat to vegan offerings.
They make the vegan products fresh to order, so be prepared to either order ahead of time or wait – warning, there is no seating, and parking is difficult around the area.
They store and cook the vegan products completely separately and keep everything separate. If you do order meat or vegetarian options, they bag them separately as well.
This is a fantastic attention to detail – as we all know sometimes establishments don’t think about the small details.
I recommend the battered sausage or battered tofu for sure with chips – if you’re feeling naughty, you could also decide to add some vegan fried dessert.
This isn’t the smartest looking establishment, but don’t be put off by the appearance as they are super friendly and authentic, offering an amazing range of vegan products, which can only be welcomed.
I have personally found the sausage and tofu the best out of the options, but please feel free to try different options and give feedback, they are always happy to know how they could do better.
