If you’re walking around the town centre of Colchester in Essex county, look up! Shakers Dairy Free Diner is a second floor restaurant specializing in classic American diner fare – and everything is vegan.
Shakers opened in the summer of 2018 with a good size menu that continues to evolve. They’re open for late breakfast, lunch, and afternoon dessert, six days a week (closed on Mondays). In the morning you can enjoy a stack of American-style pancakes, and later order a meatless burger, sandwich, or wrap. There are also many pre-made items for grabbing on the go, and gluten-free bread and wraps are available.
But you can’t leave without trying a milkshake. Shakers specializes in cool, creamy dairy-free milkshakes with vegan whipped topping and a range of flavorful syrups. The flavors change daily and with the seasons, but a few possibilities include key lime pie, mango, New York cheesecake, cherry chocolate, notella, and mint choc chip.
Additional desserts at this fun “malt shop” include coke floats, scoop ice cream (flavors change daily!) on waffle cones, cookies, and fudge.
