Vegan hotspot SUE in Rotterdam
"All bites are gluten free, lactose free and vegan."
A vegan hotspot in Rotterdam a place that you have to visit when you are in Rotterdam, is SUE.
I knew the concept of SUE for a while already and because everything is gluten free, so my nieces with gluten allergies went there sometime. And sweet as they are they also brought bites from SUE sometimes. So I knew that when I would visit Rotterdam I would visit SUE as well. Last week the moment was finally there and I was lucky because they had renovated the restaurant and actually just had the re-opening.
The concept of SUE is 'sweet without sugar'. But how did Kim (owner of SUE) start? Kim was always aware of healthy food. For her healthy food is food free from refined sugars and very much vegan. She started with a blog on which she started sharing a lot of savory recipes. When she suddenly wondered why there weren't any healthy sweets. She started experimenting and baked for friends and family. This resulted in a next step thanks to a friend of her, her sweets were sold at a first selling point. Eventually there were more selling points (50 already) and that was a big success. Besides her full time job Kim had another full time job.
Eventually she quit her job to be fully focused on baking. This resulted in an own restaurant in the beginning of 2016 at the Karel Doormanstreet in Rotterdam. Like I said the restaurant expended en had a re-opening on 4 July this year. The atmosphere and cosiness stayed even though the restaurant is bigger now. And they have a big sunny terrace where you can also enjoy your time.
SUE is well-known for its bites, small pastries in several flavors. All bites are gluten free, lactose free and vegan. Not a crime to have one extra. All ingredients they use at SUE are as much organic and locally bought as possible.
I enjoyed this lovely granola from SUE with coconut yogurt and fresh fruit. I would definitely recommend this lovely breakfast. What I like about SUE is the relaxed atmosphere and you can feel the passion for healthy food. I also took 4 bites with me to eat at home and I am sure you can imagine we finished them rather quickly haha.
All by all SUE is a very cool hotspot to visit sometime. Definitely when you are looking for healthy pastry, breakfast or lunch. And the best part of all is that they want to please everybody. Yes everything is vegan and gluten free, but if you order a cappuccino or a latte macchiato there also is a option to chose cow milk, why is that? Kim tells me that a lot of people come in for just a cup of coffee and they ask for a 'regular cappuccino or latte macchiato'. So that is the only tiny part that is not vegan, but you can of course also pick an oat-, almond or soy milk option.
You find SUE at the Karel Doormanstreet 372-374 in Rotterdam.
