'We're confident that the new menu will make everyday food occasions exceptional for our customers and give great value for money'

Coffee giant Caffè Nero has expanded its plant-based offerings with its new deli-style menu. 

The major UK coffee house has introduced a vegan Roasted Beetroot, Carrot and Mixed Grain Salad, a Tricolore Cherry Tomato, Cucumber & Radish Bowl Salad, and a Deli Sandwich with sweet potato, spicy vegan mayo and tomatoes on Italian pane Pugliese bread.

Both salads can be ordered as a side for £1.90, or as a main for £3.80. The sandwich costs £5.25.

Vegan range

Nero 'upped its vegan game' back in 2017 when it launched a new range approved by the Vegan Society. 

The chain's offerings included a Sweet Potato Falafel and Beetroot Houmous Wrap, an Apple & Blackcurrant Crumble Bar, Mince Pies, an Orzo Pasta & Mediterranean Veg dish, a Falafel with Chestnuts & Spiced Slaw Wrap, and a selection of fruits and nuts.
