Coffee chain Caffè Nero has launched a vegan toastie sandwich, the Sundried Tomato & Pesto Tostati
We’re truly spoiling you this autumn, having brought you new vegan food and drink from a staggering amount of high street restaurants and cafes. Adding to that list is a new toastie from coffee house Caffè Nero, the Sundried Tomato & Pesto Tostati.
If you’re a fan of tomatoes this is definitely one for you. Made with sundried tomato sourdough bread, the new sandwich contains dairy-free mozzarella cheese, vegan pesto, sun-dried cherry tomatoes, vegan tomato mayonnaise and salad leaves.
Available now nationwide, the Tostati is the latest vegan offering on the Caffè Nero menu, joining the coffee shop’s coconut or soya porridge, falafel flatbread, crudité pack, and apple and blackcurrant crumble bar (we’ve tried the bar, and it is delicious). Hot drinks can also be made with soya, coconut or oat milk.
A spokesperson for Caffè Nero commented:
“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.”
Caffè Nero said it plans to continue bringing out innovative vegan products, and will be launching new menu items soon. In addition, it’s bringing back it’s “hugely popular and delicious” mince pies this Christmas, which are also vegan.
Other coffee houses which added new vegan offerings this season include Starbucks, Costa and Pret. From pumpkin spice lattes to almond butter bites and sticky toffee and pecan cookies, we are thrilled with the continually developing menus in cafes and restaurants across the land.
Next stop is Christmas menus. Our bets are on Pret launching at least one vegan Christmas sandwich, and hopefully there’ll be some festive-flavoured coffees and sweet treats available in every town. There is literally no stopping the rise of veganism!
