Kind Crusts sandwich shop

When I spotted that Kind Crusts, a vegan sandwich shop, was opening in Glasgow this summer, I could have whooped with joy. Okay, so I know I've said before that we're already spoiled for choice for vegetarian and vegan food in this city, but it's still fantastic to see that there's such a demand that new places can continue to open (not to mention the veggie and vegan options popping up on meat-serving menus).

Kind Crusts is Glasgow's first vegan sandwich shop, serving up sandwiches, bagels, pastries, cakes and snacks. While the shop launched back in July with a vegetarian and vegan menu (offering one dairy cheese and 95% vegan menu), within a few weeks vegan owner, Kathryn Veroni, decided to make the switch to a full vegan menu. She says that, while she wants to encourage non-vegans to try their products, she wants to do it in the way they always intended: with 'good, honest wholefoods... We'll use our knowledge of food and creative passion to form exciting sandwich fillings, salads and bakes, which alone, will be the reason people choose us.'

We popped in on Sunday afternoon to try the sandwiches ourselves after hungrily eyeing up the menu online. I hadn't eaten yet so 'The Full Scottish' leapt off the screen at me - 'not for the faint hearted', this bagel is heaped with a tatty scone, veggie sausage, grilled portobello mushroom and roasted tomato. I decided to 'go big or go home' and added in a smoked maple rasher (if you can't indulge on the weekend, when can you, eh?). 

Sam decided to go for the sightly less decadent 'A.L.T', a bloomer sandwich loaded with creamy avocado, roasted tomatoes, lettuce, sun-dried tomato chunks with mayonnaise and sun-dried tomato oil. He also added a smoked maple rasher to his sandwich too. The couple who pigs out together stays together, right?! 

Kind Crusts also have a great selection of healthy and not-so-healthy snacks - we added a couple of bags of Eat Real Lentil Chips to our order, as well as one of each of the homemade Custard Creams, Chocolate Bourbons and Jammy Dodgers to take away. You can also choose from baskets of Ten Acre crisps and popcorn, Yushoi Snapea rice sticks (which are amazing, FYI), Anglo-Dal Sesame Snap bars, Nakd bars and nibbles and a selection of homemade pastries. There's also a fridge full of cold drinks, including Fentimans soft drinks and Rebel Kitchen coconut milkshakes. 

I'm honestly craving another 'The Full Scottish' after looking at these photographs again - messy, saucy and absolutely delicious, I can see this loaded bagel becoming a regular Sunday breakfast fixture. Sam loved his 'A.L.T' (if he hadn't already been so full he definitely would have ordered another one!) but I sadly couldn't manage a mouthful after finishing off my bagel.

With a lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff, I'll be back in Kind Crusts sooner rather than later. In fact, I'm already eyeing up the 'Falafel Filler' (falafel with red pepper hummus, caramelised red onion relish, spinach and raita dressing served in a tortilla wrap) as my next order - if I can stay away from 'The Full Scottish', that is!
