5. Buddy Buddy
Ok, so this is technically not a restaurant but we just couldn’t resist including this wonderful place to the list. The owners started the journey by creating their own nut butter at home from only the best, organic ingredients as they hated the added ingredients such as sugar, palm oil or preservatives. They shared their healthy, plant-based product with they their buddies and the rest is history – it became so popular among their friends that the business was created. Today Buddy Buddy, along with their super-delicious, smooth variety of home-made nut butters offers a great selection of plant-based coffee drinks as well as sweet and savoury snacks. A true delight even if not vegan!
