Well, what a busy month I've had! I've been out & about so much which has meant eating out A LOT. Not great for the bank account but fab for the blog as I have more choice for vegan cafe of the month.

This months winner is somewhere that my daughter had recommended called Roots & Fruits. It's a vegetarian cafe which also serves vegan food & is situated in the Grand Arcade. She had eaten there in the past & raved about it. The day that I visited I had attended the #VikingArtyParty blogging event & had a lovely day. Afterwards, I met 2 friends near Harvy Nics & we set off to eat.

The Grand Arcade is a Grade 2  listed Victorian shopping arcade with a stunning glass roof that houses various shops & eateries. What I like most about the Grand Arcade is that it is brimming with local start up businesses. The cafe has a really cool vibe & brightly coloured walls. I love quirky independently owned places like this as you know that the food will be made with love.

The cafe was packed inside but we found a table outside, pulled up an extra seat & perused the menu. I ordered the sweet potato & lentil curry with wholegrain rice & baked cauliflower. It came with a side salad & a vegan raita. As I tucked into the curry the flavours burst in my mouth & I devoured the whole lot within minutes. Wow it was so good!

Both of my friends who are non vegan really enjoyed their meals too & said that the soup was lovely. 
I will definitely return to Roots & Fruits when I am in Leeds & am so excited about the amount of fabulous Vegan cafes & restaurants popping up nowadays. Do you have a favourite? Let me know!
