It may be called Goat ... but you’ll only be served vegan food in it.

Huddersfield’s only vegan cafe has now opened its doors on one of the town’s main roads.

Cakes, full meals and snacks are all on offer at 28-seater Goat Cafe which is ironically housed in a former kebab takeaway on Trinity Street just outside Huddersfield town centre.

Owners Dawn Silver and Matt Wood hope that it will spread the message of healthy living.

It is a dream come true for former accident management worker Matt, 44, and caterer Dawn, 43, who came up with the idea after being diagnosed with cancer.

“We’re both vegan and have lived in the town for several years but have struggled to find somewhere to eat with a lot of vegan options,” said Dawn.

“I was diagnosed with cancer two years ago and it made me re-evaluate everything, including the jobs we were in.

“I used to live in Manchester where there are a few vegan cafes so decided it would be nice to do something for the community here.

“But it’s not just for vegans – we want everyone to come in and try healthy food that’s affordable and just happens to be vegan.

“This includes cycling and other sporting groups.”

Dawn, who has received the all clear regarding the cancer, opened the cafe with Matt at the end of last week.

“The reception has been excellent so far,” she said. “At the moment, it’s just me doing the cooking and Matt so we’ll looking at training another chef once we’ve found our feet.”

The couple want the cafe to be used by the community for free out of hours.

At the moment it is open 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Friday and noon to 6pm at the weekends.

“We’re looking for community groups or workshops who need a meeting space to use the cafe from around 6pm to 8pm,” said Dawn. “We just want to serve the community in the best way we can.”
