High-street coffee shop chain Caffè Nero has added a brand new vegan option to its menu, a vegan cheese toastie which is perfect for chilly Autumn days.
High-street coffee shop chain Caffè Nero has upped its vegan offering with the launch of an exciting new grab-and-go option – a sundried tomato and pesto tostati.
The vegan cheese toastie features sundried cherry tomatoes with dairy-free coconut oil mozzarella style grates, vegan pesto, salad leaves and a tomato mayonnaise on sundried tomato sourdough bread.
The vegan cheese is rumoured to be made by Bute Island, who are the creators of both Tesco and Sainsbury’s own-brand range of vegan cheeses, and is said to be perfectly melty, just like you’d expect from a good cheese toastie.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Caffè Nero said:
“Our Tostati range is hugely popular and we’ve had lots of demand from customers for a vegan Tostati in the range. We committed to only launching one when the quality and taste met our standards and would really excite our customers, and we’re very confident this does.
We are continually looking to innovate on our vegan menu range, and our vegan Tostati joins our soya or coconut porridge, falafel flatbread, crudité pack and apple and blackcurrent bar on our vegan range, which all launched earlier this year.
In addition, we will bring back in time for Christmas our hugely popular and delitious mince pies, which are also vegan and we plan to have more new vegan products launching soon.”
Last Autumn the chain added new vegan additions to the menu in the form of orzo pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, peppers, courgette, falafel with chestnuts and spiced slaw, a mouth-watering apple and blackcurrant crumble bar made with a cinnamon-spiced base layered with apple and blackcurrant filling topped with an oat crumble.
