“At BEAR, they work hard to keep the menu adaptable and inclusive for everyone. Many of the dishes have a vegan-friendly base and the menu provides options for you to add extras (e.g. bacon, goats cheese etc.) if you prefer!

BEAR’s smashed avocado toast is one of its most popular vegan options. As standard, it serves it topped with bright pink pickled onions and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds to add an extra bite. For lunch, try the roasted butternut squash – so simple, yet so insanely delicious! The Lebanese-style flatbreads are vegan too (and super yummy), spread with hummus and topped with warm falafel, pomegranate seeds and pickled fennel.
