Madigan's Food Emporium

by - January 11, 2018

We headed to Madigan's at the start of January for some Birthday tea and cake.  A cosy bookshop and cafe, it was the perfect place for a post Christmas catch up on a grey January day.

It was really quiet when we arrived mid-afternoon so we managed to get a little booth which was perfect for Milne to sleep on while we caught up.  The staff were really helpful when we asked which cakes were vegan.  There was a vegan brownie that day so we both ordered one.  Jilly went for a spiced apple tea and I had a decaf coffee.  They only do filter coffee but offer soya milk with your drinks.  The brownies were delicious and big!  Jilly's tea came in a big pot and there was plenty for her to have a cup or two and me to have a wee bit too.  My coffee came in a cafetiere and was enough for a couple of cups which is perfect for a longer catch up.  We had been for lunch before Christmas and had a delicious veggie platter with olives, hummus, veggies etc, there is also usually a couple of vegan specials on the board if you're in for a spot of lunch.

Madigan's is one of my favourite places to go with Milne, it has relaxed and cosy atmosphere and you don’t feel rushed out.  Everything is on the ground floor which makes it perfect for wheelchair and pram accessibility.  It is also one of my favourite baby changing rooms as the changing mat is low down enough that I can kneel down without hurting my back like with higher ones. This was a great place for coffee and cake but it would be great to see a few more vegan options on the menu.
