After a long and warm summer, we were both excited for a cosy catch up on a windy day. We had already tried Simpsons (while it was still ‘Tea & Cake’) but only for coffee and cake and we had been looking forward to trying out the new menu and seeing the new look for a while.

When we arrived it was quite busy, but there was a couple of tables free and space for my little vegan's pram. We arrived just after two and checked what cakes they had left. There was just one slice of the vegan chocolate cake so we asked them to put it aside for us. Everything on the menu was clearly marked vegan. We loved the new look, Simpsons has kept its cosy charm with a fresh new look and feels a little more spacious. Jilly went for the for the vegan BMBLT with portobello mushrooms instead of bacon, it was delicious but a bit on the spicy side for her so I finished it off and it was super tasty. I opted for the Buddha bowl, this is a light dish with plenty of veg, sweet potato, and apple. The quinoa in this dish was roasted in the oven-I wasn’t super keen on the crunchy texture but the dressing and leafy veg was delicious. There is a kids menu available here too and although there were no vegan options on it when we asked we were told that anything vegan on the main menu could be made as a kids portion. We finished off by sharing the last slice of chocolate cake and we both had oat milk lattes. Simpsons is a cosy and comfortable lunch spot on one of the best vegan-friendly streets. Its updated look is fresh and the menu has some great vegan options. Simpsons is still definitely one of the best spots in the city for a big slice of cake.
