A plant-based cafe in central Birmingham is gearing up to celebrate their 1st year serving hungry local by increasing their opening hours and doubling their menu.
Plant & Pulse, based in The Minories shopping centre off Bull Street, open on October 28th 2019, unaware of the pandemic before them. And despite growing worries and restrictions for the hospitality industry as a whole, owner Bob has decided to fight the tide and ensure the workers of Birmingham remain fed.
As well as serving up lunchtime goodness 6 days a week, the vegan eatery is now offering takeaway, collection and delivery Wednesday to Saturday every week – the goal is to keep that part of the city bustling.
Owner Bob Bull and his right hand man George run the eatery day to day, offering homemade wholesome food – whether you’re follow a plant-based diet or just like getting your 5 a day.
With a focus on sustainability and quality, English ingredients, this independent has gained a reputation in its first year for hearty meals and friendly, relaxed service. Popular dishes include the falafel box and the burgers, all of which cost less than a tenner.
Owner Bob says:
We have almost been open a year – and what a weird year it’s been. The first 4 months were filled with excitement and growth, followed by 4 months of forced closure, and the rest, pure uncertainty.
We are proud to have made it this far and feel we have a legitimate business people enjoy. We’ve doubled our menu this month and we think we’ve got a truly unique offering in the city centre.
The future is completely unpredictable but we’re proud to celebrate our first birthday in this vibrant city and we welcome those unfamiliar with our offering to come and try us out.
