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.
