New cafe serves up vegan hit
A NEW cafe has opened – and it only serves coffee and vegan donuts and bagels.
Cheap Thrills Coffee Company only opened its doors on Bridgend Industrial Estate in October, but it’s already proved to be a hit
cott Magill, 31, and Ryan Jenkins, 24, set up the shop due to their mutual love of coffee and vegan food.
Ryan previously ran another coffee shop in Aberkenfig, and Scott runs his own clothing company in Bridgend called Who Clothing.
Scott is a huge coffee lover, and when he realised he had some space at his unit he thought it would be a good idea to get his friend involved and do something he’s always been passionate about.
He said: “I had some space and asked Ryan if he would like to do something with me so we opened up a coffee shop and made vegan doughnuts.
“Being vegan myself, I realised there was nowhere local you could get vegan food. Everything is vegan but we only sell coffee, doughnuts and bagels.”
The pair use meat alternatives to fill their savoury snacks and put vegan twists on much-loved recipes like meatballs for their bagels.
“You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference,” Scott added. “It shows you don’t have to have meat.”
Their mouthwatering doughnuts currently include flavours such as Oreo crunch, Biscoff and peanut butter, but the boys hope to experiment with more recipes and develop more flavours as the. business grows. S
“It’s been insane,” added Scott. “We’ve been making doughnuts and by the end of the day we’ve sold out.
“There’s been a bit of hype on Instagram, because people have been noticing it. The support has been wonderful.
“It’s not just for vegans – everyone is welcome here.”
Cheap Thrills is open between 10am and 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday.
