Calling all vegans: Cantina is whipping up a storm with their plant-based spin on classics. A top choice when it comes to meat-free birthday ideas in Leeds, the eatery has a number of comical bites, including Piggy Stardust - a seitan hotdog with fake bacon. It also shares the building with a live music venue and bar if you're in the mood to keep the party going.
