Vegan Leeds Rhinos rugby star Anthony Mullally has opened a vegan cafe near his club’s grounds in Leeds.

The Vital Cafe, which he set up with nutritional therapists James Morris and Laura Wilson, serves Caribbean-inspired fare, as well as hot and cold drinks.

The high-profile athlete, who is passionate about veganism, will also be using the cafe as a base to advocate for veganism by holding educational evenings and other events.

Vegan stereotypes

“I suppose because of my size and what I do for a living, I challenge the old stereotypes about what a vegan should look like,” Mullally told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“People expect rugby players to be eating steak every day but a lot of our squad are now vegetarian because we have started to have the conversation about everyone’s personal taste.

“I hope Leeds Rhinos fans will come in and give it a try. We are very proud of our menu and the great tastes we have on offer and I am sure once they taste the food, they will be coming back for more.”
