Come and visit us in the Norwich Lanes

Now Open Monday - Saturday 10am - 6pm

Open at 12 Pottergate in the Norwich Lanes, Tofurei is a relaxing vegan coffee shop and ‘grab ‘n’ go’.

Showcasing output from the UK’s first shop based micro soya dairy and our unique vegan deli-counter with soysages, burgers as well as tofu.

Free samples usually available for you to try before you buy. You’ll also find our tofu and tofu products on the menu in a number of fine establishments in and around Norwich.

Selling familiar drinks, snacks and foods to go, including coffee, teas, soysage rolls, a mouth watering collection of fresh baked cakes, chocolate (including Vivani and Go Max), and Ten Acre crisps. Grab a lunch to take away with sandwich, crisps, chocolate and a cold drink for £5.50 (£6.60 eat in) with our meal deal, or relax with a coffee and cake.  All products are plant based.

The dairy includes a unique vegan deli counter with plant based substitutes for fresh meat products, including soysages, burgers, loose tofu and a unique fresh tofu for use as a meat substitute in cooking – all produced on site.

Completely additive free fresh soya milk, along with flavoured varieties are on sale to enjoy in the shop or take away in one of our reusable bottles. During the summer months, enjoy a whippy style soft-serve soya ice cream – on its own, as an ice-cream float or in our special ‘cake and ice-cream’ deal.

We are East Anglia’s only stockist of the full range of Tyne Chease – award winning cashew nut based vegan cheese. Also stockists of the One Planet Pizza range of frozen vegan pizzas.

In September 2017 we were proud to be a finalist in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category of the prestigious Norfolk Food and Drink Awards, with a record number of nominations from our customers.

‘Pop-ups’

Workshops

Starting in 2018, get hands on with tofu

Having finally accepted that we can’t make everything, open six days a week and run workshops – all from the same small space, we are in the process of expanding. A new off-site production base is being built to complement the shop, taking pressure off the space and helping us to cope with our growing wholesale demand.

Our new space will be ready by the end of the year, and we are now targeting Spring 2018 for our first workshops. These will show how quick and easy it is to make your own soya milk @ home. We’ll be adding workshops on making tofu at home and cooking with tofu as the programme expands.

Lasting just over 2 hours, our workshops are a fun and practical way to a dairy alternative. Costs will include all materials and use of equipment – just bring yourself, curiosity and enthusiasm – take home a litre of soya milk and a free set of ingredients for your next batch

You will be able to book online. Call in, email or phone us to register an interest or find out more.
