Birchwood Food Emporium (Part 2)

by - July 04, 2019


If you’ve read Birchwood Part One you will know how much we loved the shop part of this space. The new name and location for our much loved Heart Space Wholefoods is fantastic. Although the old location just around the corner stocked lots of our favourites, it was much much smaller and there was no sit in café, just a juice and soup bar. Well, let me tell you, the café space at Birchwood will not disappoint.

The menu is jam-packed full of delicious vegan options including waffles! Whether you are looking for coffee and cake or a sit-down brunch or lunch, this is definitely the place for you. We were invited* along for a VIP brunch and tour of the shop and our table was full of delicious vegan food; dips, fresh bread, salads, baked sweet potato and much more. Our wee taster menu was SO good. We can’t wait to try even more of the vegan food on offer here.

On to the cakes, well what can we say? With SO many vegan cake options we literally could not decide what to have. We ended up sharing a piece of chocolate cake and a fruit scone (yes, vegan scones!) with (vegan) butter and jam. These were absolutely delicious. I had also been in on opening day and had a massive slice of carrot cake, the best I’ve had in Dundee yet. We are so excited to pop back in to try even more yummy cakes.

Everyone was in agreement, the coffee was perfect. If you're looking for a super tasty caffeine fix then this is your answer. However, Birchwood do charge 40p extra for all milk alternatives, which is slightly disappointing as there are so many vegan options we thought that soya milk would come at the standard coffee price as many other cafes do.

Birchwood has such a lovely atmosphere and the food is all so fresh and colourful but still feels like a treat. This will definitely be one of our new regulars!
