Bailgate Deli, in Lincoln's historic Cathedral Quarter, is a vegan and vegetarian café and deli. Our food is almost entirely made in-house. The menu includes standard items such as a full vegan breakfast and a mezzanine plate added to by daily specials (we're passionate about cooking and love making new dishes).
Through the day we serve great coffee, proper hot chocolate and lots of other drinks. Cakes and savouries are made daily. We know how to make a good gluten free pastry for a steady flow of tarts with vegan fillings. Our deli shelves have many of the staples needed in good plant based cooking. Our chiller cabinet always has a range of great salads. Most days of the week you can find Welbeck's properly made bread.
The café is small but doubles in size during the summer as we spill out on to the pavement!
