Sweetpea Cafe

Wednesday 22 May 2019

While Falda was on holiday I visited Sweetpea Cafe in Broughty Ferry for lunch with my (newly vegan) friend Sam Baxter Art as guest blogger. There wasn't a menu as everything is on display in the counter but it's clearly labelled and there was a lot to choose from!

Value for Money:★★★★Overall:★★★
We decided to share a couple of things as they all looked so good. There was a jackfruit sweet potato wrap, and spiced roast vegetable tart. Both were served with beautiful, colourful salads topped with flowers, the wrap with crisps and the tart with vegan coleslaw which is always a bonus! They were delicious, enough of a treat to be comfort food but still felt healthy.

Sam had a Teapigs berry tea and I had an oat milk latte with chai syrup. There was also soya and coconut milk to choose from for hot drinks. Sweetpea Cafe offer a lot of vegan sweet options too, we had a pineapple crumble cakey thing which was very tasty. They also had ginger tiffin, scones, and a chocolatey nut thing.

Hopefully we can visit again soon since the menu changes all the time (we spotted vegan sausage rolls on the Sweetpea Cafe Instagram) and Falda doesn't want to miss out!

Makers For Maggie's Spring Market

Monday 6 May 2019

Makers for Maggie's Spring Market might not be a "vegan event" but once we heard there would be vegan rocky road brownies there we knew we had to tell you about it! Taking place on Sunday 12th May from 11am-4pm at Discovery Point, Makers for Maggie's returns for its third market with a fantastic line up of local and regional designers, artists and makers all supporting Maggie's Cancer Centre in Dundee. I'll be there with my JillyJilly goodies, including 'vegan' travel cups and mugs. You'll also find The Black Cat Soap House with their range of vegan soaps, shampoo bars and skincare. Make sure to look out for The Candle Bothy too, for a collection of soy wax candles with lovely fresh scents.

As well as stalls, you'll find a pop-up tea room, creative activities, mini beauty treatments and information about cancer support. Our favourites, Sorbus Coffee will be there, with Minor Figures oat milk and Nitro cold brews, Almighty Foods chocolate bars and Rapscallion Sodas. They won't be selling their brownies but that's because Artisana Brownies will be bringing their vegan rocky road slices, we can't wait to try them!

Artisana Brownies will also be selling their recently launched hot chocolate, the signature and dark hot chocolates are both vegan. We were kindly gifted some to try by Sophie who is organising the market, and it is delicious! Super chocolately, a really indulgent treat. You can also make a luxury chilled chocolate milk - "make up the hot chocolate as usual and allow to cool in a glass bottle. Once cool transfer to the fridge for a few hours. Add ice to a glass and pour the thick chilled chocolate over".

Entry is a £1 donation to Maggie's.
