Manic organic in kings heath, brum

Postby Man On Bike. » Sun Sep 02, 2007 8:50 pm

Was really impressed by this place (went over a month ago), the menu looked pretty good, i had felafel with salad. The actual cafe is really nice inside and there are tables outside so you can eat in the garden if you want.

It is a vegetarian restaurant not a vegan one and there's a lot of cheese / mayonnaise / milk / cream on the menu but I'm sure most of the stuff can be veganised if you ask.

Top notch place although it's a bit expensive for me if I remember correctly so I couldn't afford to eat there every day. Then again maybe i could if I gave up beer :roll:

If you aint been there before, [url="http://www.multimap.com/maps/#t=l&map=52.43632,-1.89032|16|4&loc=GB:52.43632:-1.89032:16|46 Poplar Rd, Kings Heath, BIRMINGHAM. B14 7AG|B14 7AG"]here it is[/url] - just catch the 50 to kings heath and walk around the corner innit.

Didnt realise this was a veggie place - had heard it was meat, fish, odd veggie dish and they had no vegan food - but if its changed hands and has more options its worth a visit :D

Ive never been to Kings Heath but there is a vegan free food fair there in Nov - Midlands veggie campaigns so high time i explored out of town areas more!

Im still miffed about Rooties going omi :( be nice to have alternative to the fab warehouse

Is there a website for this?

Damn...

Can't say I liked Rooties anyway, it is a fairly nice place just a bit too expensive and too 'cool'... I've not been to the Custard Factory for ages acctually, since they put that sign up saying "only 'cool' people are allowed here"

Good news about Manic Organic changing hands - a big group of us got food from their Glastonbury stall a few years back and we were all quite disappointed by it. Far too much dairy and pretty bland.

hello. this is my dads cafe so if anyone has any questions i would be happy to anser them as i worked there for 3 years. but first off all i would like to say that it has never changed hands. and at glastonbury festival all the food that my dad cooks is vegan there is milk for tea and yougat for the fruit salad but you add them yourself. one more thing most of the dishes one the menu can be made vegan and the soups allways are.

There must be two Manic Organic's then, cos the stall we went to in the Green Fields at Glastonbury had hardly any vegan options.

there are two one cafe in kings heath and one stall at glastombury in the green fields but it is the same company. so like i said before the stall at glastombury is completly vegan and has been for 20 years. please get you facts right misinforming people can have serious effects, you are mistaken!

Well something is a bit odd here isn't it?

I have real trouble believing that Hiking Fox has made up a story about Manic Organic at Glastonbury. Why would she? Doesn't make sense.

On the other hand, why would you claim that your stall is Vegan if it isn't!!??

Checking out the menu for "Manic Organic!" in Birmingham does reveal a cheesy theme though!!! ....

Traditional – Mature Farmhouse cheddar & red onion £4.25
Brie & Cranberry – Somerset Brie & wild cranberry jam £4.25
Basil Fawlty – Mature cheddar, fresh pesto basil & tomato £4.25
Avocado Jo – Avocado, Farmhouse cheddar, red onion & tomato £4.50
Stilton Smile – Creamy Blue Stilton, tomato & red onion £4.50
Mushroom Mystery – Fresh mushroom, mushroom pate, tomato & red onion £4.50
Feta Feast – Greek Feta cheese, green olives & tomato £4.50
Mushroom Mostly – Fresh mushrooms, mushroom pate, Farmhouse cheddar & red onion £4.50
Sweet Pepper – Somerset Brie, roasted sweet pepper & mushroom pate £4.50


As for Glastonbury, most of the information I can find refers to the stall as vegan but I found a menu offering Vegetarian or Vegan Ploughmans and some reports describe the staall as "largely " vegan.
