Tea and Cake

by - March 16, 2018

We headed to Exchange Street looking for some vegan coffee and cake, we had been to Flame Tree for lunch a few weeks ago so decided to go back to an old favourite, Tea and Cake.  With vegan savoury and sweet options this cosy little cafe and bakeshop is fast becoming a regular afternoon coffee spot.

We were there mid afternoon when it was winding down and a little quieter for a chatty coffee.   The staff were very welcoming as usual and although we didn’t manage to nab the window sofa, there was plenty of room for the pram in the central seating area.  We asked the waiter for the vegan cake options that day and he let us know they had a chocolate fudge cake - when we have been before there have often been two vegan friendly cake options.  We both went for a slice of the cake and it was delicious. Jilly opted for a winter spice tea and I had a decaf oat milk latte, the waiter let me know that they also had almond and soya milk- both drinks were perfect warmers for a chilly day.

Although we were just in for cakes and coffees we had a peek at the menu and there were a few options which could be made vegan and there are usually vegan soups and specials available.  I had been in February for lunch and enjoyed the garlic & thyme pumpkin, red onion, tomato, chilli jam and rocket ciabatta panini and it was SO GOOD.  My friend had the VLT from the breakfast menu (which is served all day) and said it was delicious!!! Tea and Cake is a the perfect spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch or just some cake and coffee.  It would be great to see some more vegan options on the menu in the future. Another vegan friendly gem on Exchange Street.
