Vegan Left Fuming At Her £7 'Vegan Breakfast'

A woman was left livid afrer she was charged £7 for a vegan breakfast she described as 'pathetic' as it was just a plate of veg.

Susan Hart claims that she was 'royally ripped off' and that on top of the shit brekkie, a mix-up led to the nutritionist being charged an extra £3.25 for sourdough toast.

She was given the fry up at Copper in Central Avenue, West Bridgford.

She told the Nottingham Post: "It was pathetic. The two ingredients I didn't have were the most expensive."

Susan, who works as a nutritionist and lives in West Bridgford, had telephoned ahead to make sure she could order vegan grub.

"I was told I could order anything I liked to make it suitable for my requirements," she said.

But she says that staff were 'unhelpful' when she did arrive.

"I asked for guacamole but was told it was not appropriate for me so I don't know if it had mayo in it, yet I later discovered they serve avocado," she said.

She ended up having to query a £3.25 charge for sourdough toast in order to have it stricken from the bill.

Susan complained in an email to the café and has vowed never to return.

One of the Nutrition Coach's followers said: "Go to Annie's Burger Shack for a vegan breakfast, not healthy but definitely delicious."

Another said: "They should have done it cheaper for you that's for sure."

However, a spokesperson for Copper's owners, Great Northern Inns, told the Nottingham Post: "While we try to accommodate all customer requests and provide excellent service, on this particular occasion the customer decided to order a vegetarian breakfast from our menu and substitute non-vegan items for additional portions of suitable items, which was explained at the point of ordering.

"The cost of the toast was deducted from the bill prior to payment but it is not policy to deduct the price of the breakfast if substitute items have been provided.

"If a customer has a complaint, we would always encourage them to address this with the manager during their visit in order to resolve it."
