A vegan takeaway's bid to take over a popular cafe for one night has sold out in half an hour.
Nuts About Plants is hosting an evening of vegan food at Margo's Lounge in Bells Road, Gorleston, and has been stunned by the response.
Chef Hayley Mac, who runs a take-out service from her home in Bradwell, said she approached the owner who immediately said yes.
Once a date was set and menus produced the event on October 16 sold out in 30 minutes, and has a growing waiting list.
Mrs Mac, 41, opened Dubai's first vegan restaurant in 2011 and designed the menu for Poke and Co which is served across the world.
She said she was thrilled at the response and was most looking forward to seeing people tuck into her creations, rather than simply take them away to eat at home.
By way of introduction she aimed to "keep it simple" for the first event, which will see over 30 people sitting down to eat.
"We are already fully booked and there is a waiting list, so now I have to do a really good job," she said, adding: "It has made my mum so proud."
