Vegan café building a buzz about its take on the burger.
You come out of Holy Cow feeling like everything is a bit right-er in the world than it was before. It may be vegan, vegetarian and mostly gluten-free but the food is delicious. It may be in a basement but the interior design, if minimalist, is cheerful and pretty. The decorations are homemade and change with the seasons, as does the food. There’s always a choice of five burgers (such as pulled jackfruit, which tastes much like pulled pork, apparently), five sandwiches on lovely, spongey homemade gluten-free bread and a soup, such as tasty beetroot and green lentil. Ingredients change according to what’s available organically and in season. There are several huge, homemade vegan cakes and it's very child-friendly. Seriously good, without being earnest.
