DUNFERMLINE'S first all-vegan cafe has opened its doors this week.

269 Vegan has taken over the old premises of Reuben's on New Row, creating six new jobs for the town.

It will serve breakfast and brunch items such as granola, porridge, and avocado on toast as well a selection of bagels, soups and even vegan meats.

For those that have a sweet tooth, there will be plenty of cakes, craft sodas and vegan coffee.

The menu also caters to people with allergens with 80 per cent of food served being gluten-free.

The Dunfermline cafe will be the second branch that Judith Bartok has opened with a sister store in Perth.

Chef for the Dunfermline shop, Rab Dryburgh, told the Press: "Our Perth cafe opened in 2018 and after the continued success of that, we thought we'd open up a branch in Fife because there doesn't seem to be anything at all in terms of Vegan places.

"Dunfermline seemed to be the perfect location to do that.

"We buy our produce from local companies as much as possible. Our coffee comes from Kirkcaldy, bread from Crieff, tea from Edinburgh.

"We've started off with a smaller menu though for the first few weeks to let us find our feet first."

If you're wondering where the cafe gets its name, it's called after a calf in Israel which was rescued by animal rights activists. The tag in his ear was 269 and is the inspiration for the new cafe.

Rab added: "I'm from Dunfermline and I would visit the cafe in Perth regularly so when I saw they were opening here I jumped at the chance to work for them.

"It's been steady business so far since we opened on Monday. I expect it to be busier at the weekend.

"But we are selling a lot of cake!

"We've had a lot of visitors who normally went to the Perth branch from Fife so they are excited that we have come this way.

"It's not just for vegans though, there's something for everybody.

"You don't have to be vegan to enjoy our take on bacon!

"All our takeaway materials we get from a company called vegware. It's compostable but it needs to come back to us.

"You'll find vegware in the supermarkets too such as Linda McCartney products and we're happy to take that packaging too.

"It's all about having as little waste as possible."

269 Vegan has taken over 10-12 New Row which has been unoccupied since Reuben's shut down at the start of 2019.

The wine store which was owned by Reuben's at 14 New Row was taken over by Juniper Wine Cafe in late 2019.

269 Vegan will be open seven days a week from 10am-4.30pm.
