Being a vegan I had to try this out and was very pleasantly surprised. Tucked away and cosy location, didn't feel cramped. Food was delicious, especially the cheesecake, try it!
Fantastic vegan food - for vegans and carnivores alike. Exceptionally friendly Argentinian waitress - who explained the menu and answered all of our questions enthusiastic.
Friendly, lively cafe with an excellent vegan menu. Its on the first floor and there is no lift, but wide staircase with rails both sides. Not somewhere you'd go for peace and quiet.
Brilliant food and staff! Great to be in an environment that takes vegan food to a new level.
I’ve always loved the food and friendly staff at Stem and Glory. The food is so healthy and made creatively
It looks appetising
Locally sourced food at its best
Ive always recommended this place to friends, come here and left with a great happy bunch
The staff are awesome
We went as a family of 5 to celebrate our daughter's birthday .She is vegan and has to have gluten free - the rest of us are not ! We were so impressed the food was delicious ,imaginative and beautifully presented and we didn't miss meat at all .
The staff were so friendly and helpful and the chef is a little gem.
Whata lovely lazy sunday lunch with a difference -thank you .
Booked for the evening on the way back from the airport and not disappointed. The food is excellent and it is a vibrant busy place.
After eating at stem and glory I was excited to share it with my non vegan friends and who were willing to give it a try.
After booking a table we all turned up excited to try something different. Once seated we were told the ovens were broken and a number of dishes were off the menu.
We were only given the choice of the 4 fruit juices as drinks .
We chose the burgers and sweet potato fries. The fries were great !
We all had banana cake which was delicious .
I previously raved about the food atmosphere and staff .
I think we experience an off night.
Amazing flavours and hearty vegan food! Would highly recommend.
What a find. Fabulous food, great atmosphere and friendly helpful staff.
Lovely meal and experience.
The meals were well recieved and the ambiance was relaxing.
Our Furst visit it was lovely to have so much delicious choice in the menu. Service and staff were great too.
The location is a little unexpected, upstairs in a large 80s shop unit. But the experience was fantastic from beginning to end...lovely, friendly staff and excellent food. Thanks, we will be back!
Food was delicious and I am glad Stem and Glory is vegan and showing the possibilities for delicious healthy vegan food. Friendly efficient service too.
Delicious food bursting with flavour and beautifully presented. Both the vegans and non-vegans in our group loved it!
For me as new Vegan the food was perfect! Very tasty and nice presentation.
Sadly the room is very loud, you can hardly understand your own word. Not good for nice relax conversation at your lunch. It’s a bit small the room and croudy. Lucky I booked the table for our lunch.
As someone whose just come through bowel cancer I am exploring vegetarianism/ vegan food to eat more healthily. The menu was good and the choices original and tasty. Only criticism was my husband ordered asparagus and potato cakes which was offered as a starter or a main course. He asked for it as a main course (£12)..but it was tiny...there were four pieces of asparagus and 3 potato cakes. We felt this to be mean. We checked with the waitress that he had indeed been given the main course version and she said yes. We were at no point asked whether our meal was OK (as is standard practice in other restaurants) But we thought asking if it was a starter or a main ..telling the waitress he was still hungry and then asking for the menu to order more food because he was still hungry may have made the point that it was completely inadequate as a main course . Short of actually complaining there was nothing more we could do really and we didn't want to complain as other aspects were good. We didn't leave a tip and felt the waitresses were all quite disconnected from their customers..no banter/small talk or waiting pleasantries. Toilets very clean which was another positive.
I love the restaurant and the food was amazing. My only criticism is that my boyfriend and I may be seemingly aliens and not into this whole IPA trend - we both really displike them but your beer menu seems to be all ipas :( we went once before and you had an Indian wheat beer with spices, it was amazing and was a little sad we couldn’t get it again. We would also prefer just normal lager instead of IPA but other than that amazing :)
Fabulous food with great service, brilliant to go into a restaurant and be able to choose anything on the menu.
Only downside is it's upstairs and there is not much daylight.
Would highly recommend this place to everyone regardless of whether you are vegan or not.... Enjoy!
I will definitely be back
Really nice food, worth the 22 mile drive from St Neots. Highly recommend this vegan restaurant. Only downside was the chairs were a little uncomfortable but we were there a while.
Very enjoyable meal all in all.
The food at Stem and Glory is amazing. Lovely combination of flavours and textures.
I went here on a date and it was the perfect, cutest little place with amazing food. I can imagine even going there with people who aren’t vegan like myself would enjoy the food anyway!
Had a lovely “Sunday” lunch on bank holiday Monday. Food was cooked well, interesting, tasty. A good range of beers and wines. Ambience was good, I was pleased we had booked as the cafe was full. Where we sat there was a little noise from the coffee machine / kitchen seats were modern, some chairs and some stools so a little uncomfortable. Couldn’t fault the service. I’ll certainly recommend to others.
Great all-vegan menu. Genuinely tasty food. Good beer selection. However, the food is far too pricey (averaging £12 for a fairly small serving). If one strong argument in favour of vegan food is that it is more economical to produce, then this establishment isn't doing anything to communicate that.
I’ve been following Stem and Glory via Facebook for months. We made reservations for the Easter roast special. There was an enticing picture on the add. We expected a set menu, however it was their regular Menu being offered.
I ordered the roast and my husband the burger.
The roast, while delicious and beautifully presented, was not what the advert on FACEBOOK was. Sort of odd that there was no mention of the special Easter/Bank holiday special.
Either way, the food was incredible. We will definitely be back for date nights and hope to try the King street location for lunch.
We’re fairly new to the area and have been looking for a Vegan place. This is now a favorite.
Tried the to-fish and chips special for Easter - it was unreal! So sad this won't be a permanent fixture on the menu. Lovely deep-fried tofu with nori, beautifully cooked potato wedges and the tartar sauce was brilliant.
A Vegan menu of the highest quality. Inventive cooking and all absolutely delicious. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly and helpful service - a quinoa salad thoughtfully offered in place of a bun for one gluten-free member of our party. Yummy aubergine dish and cheesecake especially. First floor venue probably not obvious to the casual passer by but it deserves to thrive on word of mouth recommendation. Will try the cafe on King Street next - and I'll be back! Many thanks.
We booked Stem & Glory as a special celebration ahead of our daughters MA Graduation Ceremony. Our daughters boyfriend has recently turned Vegan and we wanted to try out Vegan cuisine. We were NOT disappointed and had a wonderful lunch and a lovely bottle of Champagne. Couldn't fault a thing.
Fantastic food with high-quality ingredients and exciting seasoning, with an interesting twist even on simple dishes.
The close arrangement of the tables makes the place a bit stuffy, but that's the only improvement point
Food is absolutely delicious. Always a treat to go there.
Lovely food and atmosphere. My partner has been vegan for 3 months and we both loved the food
Imaginative food in a limited menu. Service very slow and major items not on menu.
We had an excellent meal, which was great value. The service was brilliant to, very helpful and smiley. We would come back again. Thank you
Good food, good tea, good setting - eat here to taste a treat
I have to start this by saying I'm not a vegan zealot. I say this because this review will come over as gushing about Stem & Glory but I promise you - it's one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Every time I go to S&G, I come away having had a wonderful meal with new flavours, new textures. THIS is the restaurant that first made me realise that you can have vegan food and not miss any of the things you think you might miss from a meat or even vegetarian (cheese & dairy) meal.
I don't know how they manage to do their food the way they do without using eggs, dairy, etc but it's some culinary wizardry!
I also love that they have a one-page menu. A few starters, a few mains and a few desserts. Not 500 choices of average slop - just a page of well-crafted, well-cooked and delicious courses.
On top of that, I love that each time - there's something new - dinner or lunch at S&G encourages me to be adventurous with my food choices rather than just going for the usual safe choices.
I'm so happy to see them succeeding and growing - I was a regular at the Chesterton Road branch but also went for lunch at the King Street branch and that was delicious too - different vibe too, love it!
Every person I've brought to S&G has agreed with me - they can't believe that vegan food could be this tasty - clearly to some, vegan food suffers from some kind of perception problem that the food can't be nice because it's missing all the typically "naughty" ingredients associated with super-tasty food.
My one final hope is that they eventually do decide to release a cook-book. Would love to be able to replicate some of their recipes & techniques at home.
Keep doing what you're doing S&G and best of luck for the London branch too - I hope you continue to go from strength to strength, easily one of my favourite places to eat!
I have eaten here before and been incredibly impressed with the food and portions. This time service was very slow, the normal lasagne which I tend to have as a favourite was devoid of flavour with an odd topping. I wonder with the increase of properties is reducing the personal touch and lovely food.
Had a great birthday meal at stem and glory. The food was absolutely scrumptious and The staff were super nice and helpful. Thanks a bunch~~
Bang tidy...Red Lentil Curry was seriously tasty...And I'm not a full on Vegan.
We have recently become vegan and find it hard to eat out and this was perfect. NEED one in Northamptonshire/Bedfordshire/mk
