Stem + Glory is part of a burgeoning plant based movement, and a pioneer in the new world of Crowd supported business.

In October 2016 we successfully raised just under £100,000 on to launch our first location, and in April 2018 we raised over £600,000 on Crowdcube for our flagship location in London which opened in January 2019

The backdrop to our success has been the rapid and exponential shift in attitudes towards plant based cuisine. We now see animal welfare and veganism regularly in the media, and corporations, supermarkets and ordinary folk are becoming more and more willing to make a stand for healthier and more ethical lifestyles.

Our hope and aim is that we can make a contribution towards this shift in consciousness, in order that we can all live in a more peaceful and harmonious world.

Although vegetarian for more than 40 years, I’d not really been enthusiastic about vegan places, as I’d often felt let down by strange-tasting or uninspiring food. Stem + Glory has changed all that for me. The food is absolutely top-notch, well-presented, well-thought out and extremely tasty. There’s a lot of emphasis on the visuals of the food, so it entices the eye before you even have a mouthful. And when you do, flavours are big and full and it’s all mouth-wateringly good. It is seriously good food, no matter what your usual diet.

This place is just amazing and serves incredibly tasty vegan food prepared very caringly by the team. Need more friendly eateries like this nationwide. Extremely happy and satisfied overall. Would recommend this place to everyone. Very clean and friendly place. Food is just amazing in taste.

Today was my third visit and once again the food was amazing. The tofu scramble on sourdough is the best I’ve had anywhere. Service is great too. It’s the one place we always eat at when we’re in Cambridge.
