Costa Overgate

by - March 28, 2018

We only had forty minutes at the end of the day for a quick coffee and we were in the Overgate Centre so decided to pop into Costa on the ground floor for a quick drink and catch up. We’ve both been to Costa a few times before to grab a coffee on the go but this is the first time we had sat in together.

I was in the mood for a hot chocolate so asked the Barista if the Costa hot chocolate was vegan, the staff didn’t know and had to look up their ingredients folder.  Once a few of them had, had a look they let me know that it was vegan but was made in a factory which handles milk. I went for a coconut hot chocolate, and although it cost extra for this milk it was definitely worth it for a super creamy hot chocolate.  Jilly got her caffeine fix with a soya latte.

We were a little bit peckish so decided to share both of the vegan cakes on offer; The Paradise Coconut and Pistachio Slice and The Oaty Jam Bake.  The Coconut slice was a little bit dry but tasty and the jam bake was really yummy. There were a few other vegan kids snack options on the counter but there were no substantial savoury options if you are looking for a bit of lunch.  There wasn’t a huge selection available but it's good to see a few vegan friendly treats at a coffee chain, especially if you're in a rush. Costa also don’t charge extra if you want soya milk which is a definite bonus. It would be great to see some vegan lunch options available for people grabbing a quick bite to eat.  As this Costa is located within the shopping centre you need to go to the centres facilities which isn’t ideal for a little one! This wasn’t our favourite spot for a vegan coffee and cake but was good for a really quick catch up.
