The coronavirus is obviously affecting local cafes/shops/events, and the Swansea Vegan Festival
in June had to be cancelled. The situation is forever changing, but
up to date information can usually be obtained by clicking on the links down below.
Brontosaurus are open (Mon-Sat 9:30-4:30),
also they are still offering a delivery service
(free for £30+ orders in Swansea area, or £3 charge for areas a bit over three miles away).
Canteen 18 is open (takeaways only for now), and so is The V Hub (100% plant-based health bar).
See Cafes/Shops below for days and times.

The Swansea Vegan Mini Market, which had been taking place every two months, is on hold for now. Charlie from Brontosaurus explains (20th Sept): "I’ve
spent the last few months reviewing all possible aspects of how to
continue with the SVMM whilst creating a space that adheres to
government guidelines and keeps both customers and traders safe, but,
unfortunately, have found it impossible within our current space and
circumstances." See here for more.

(at 11 St Helen's Road) are putting on vegan 'fine dining' Christmas
meals: "We are not an exclusively vegan restaurant, however we do host
completely vegan events including two fine dining Christmas events. We
do a set six-course tasting menu which for Christmas is £30 per head.
The menu changes monthly based on a theme. The vegan option is
available all month but we do exclusively vegan events which for
December are on Sunday 13th/20th. We also offer a wine flight
(obviously also vegan) that is selected to pair perfectly with the food
for an additiional £20 per head." See menu opposite and their website.
