Marwick's Vegan Kitchen* (now closed)

by - September 08, 2019

We were delighted to be invited* to try some of the delicious menu at the all-new Marwick’s,  we have been patiently waiting for the reopening of Marwick’s Vegan Kitchen.  As Dundee's orignal plant-based café, we have always loved the delicious foods on offer, however, the new, improved Marwick’s Vegan Kitchen is on another level.

You can find Marwick’s underneath Lovely Things (where folk café used to be) and it is the dreamiest space.  It was pouring with rain when we arrived and I was pushing a big and soaking wet pram, we were greeted by Lois who was so welcoming.  The space is immediately lovely with fairy lights and calm colours, it has a beautiful cosy vibe which makes you long for winter.  We headed to the back which is close by the kids' area, equipped with everything to keep a little one occupied and happy, it's clear that Mike and Lois know exactly what kids (and parents) need.  Marwick’s makes it easy to relax while out with the whole family.

We were recommended the Pink Chai Latte which Jilly had and a Deluxe Hot Chocolate (cream and marshmallows) and a toddler size hot chocolate too.  These were so delicious, exactly what we needed to warm up on a chilly day, and who doesn’t love a pink drink?

For the next hour we were presented with tasters of delicious foods starting with the sharing platter, with lots of dips, jerky and vegetables this is the perfect nibble when you are in for a drink, we especially loved the dehydrated spiced kale.  Next up was a warm potato salad (Jilly’s favourite), ramen noodles (my favourite) and what can only be described as the best burger EVER, Two Cheese Truffle Burger, which even includes homemade bacon slices and a custom charcoal brioche bun (created especially for Marwick’s) we were absolutely stuffed, these dishes are truly special.  

My little vegan got to sample the children's menu and went for linguine with homemade sauce - this came with a side of fresh berries and fries.  She loved it and we took the leftovers home so she continued to eat throughout the afternoon.  

There's always room for cake… we got to sample three flavours of Dolce Treats: Key Lime and Turmeric, Chocolate Fudge and Mixed Berry, these come served with your choice of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.  These were just amazing.  We are both living for the Key Lime and Turmeric, it's so refreshing and light.  The other two are much richer but still stunning.  We will definitely be back for more.  

There really is something for everyone here, whether you are vegan or not, this a great place to bring the whole family.  There is no doubt that an incredible amount of work has gone into this fantastic menu and we can’t wait to try even more delicious creations from the incredible kitchen.

Marwick’s Vegan Kitchen is such a beautiful space, from the moment you walk in it is warm and inviting.  If you liked the original Marwick’s, you are going to love this bigger space and amazing menu.  It’s clear how much love has gone into creating these dishes, and speaking to the head chef, her passion for vegan cooking shone through.  Lois and Mike have created a truly incredible vegan experience here, this is not just a place to eat.
