A contemporary American Diner style restaurant is the last place you’d expect to see a vegan menu. Famous for their all-day breakfasts, cheese and bacon covered burgers and creamy milkshakes – these guys have created a whole new plant-based menu to cater for the growing number of veggie and vegan customers.

The vegan menu is currently being served at their Islington & Strand branches, and features re-worked versions of their classic dishes including mac & cheese, banana pancakes and even southern fried Seitan with waffles and maple syrup.

The Diner are the latest high-street chain to adapt their menu based on increased demand for meat and dairy-free alternatives – following in the footsteps of Wagamama’s & Nandos.
