AN AWARD-WINNING vegan cafe in the heart of a Scottish city centre is looking for a new owner.

The Glasvegan found on St Enoch Square was taken over in January 2023 by plant-based owner Tyler Lewington, who moved to the city from Orkney.

However, Lewington posted on social media on Monday, February 12 that he intends to sell the cafe, which won Vegetarian Restaurant of the Year under his management, due to personal circumstance but with hopes that it remains a “vegan hub” for Glasgow.

The first-time business owner said: “2023 was an amazing year: winning awards, creating tasty dishes, building a fantastic team, growing as a business, and meeting all of you. With this, I am sad to let you all know my intention to sell the cafe.

“I want to thank you all for a brilliant year. It’s been my absolute pleasure to serve you guys each and every day: learning about your families, healing your hangovers, trying your favourite music, and trying your favourite spots in Glasgow.

Lewington added: “I genuinely love this cafe dearly and it has come to be a second home to me (maybe even my first home). However, due to personal circumstances I will no longer be able to stay at the helm of The Glasvegan ship”.

He concluded by asking followers to share the message that the cafe is up for sale and there is an opportunity to do “some great work here”.
