Serendipities sadly closed in August 2023, you can still follow Uppertunity CIC to see the work they are doing. They also offer catering for events. Another vegan place? We are so spoilt for choice in Dundee just now! With Birchwood, Underdog and the Marwick’s Vegan Kitchen opening (very) soon, we could not be happier or in more of a food heaven just now. Serendipities café just opened up on Union Street (where Marwick’s used to be) and is fully plant-based, serving up lots of delicious food and drink.

It’s been a wee while since we have written a blog post together, it's been a busy summer for us both, so it was nice to get out for a quick lunch and a girly catch up. Serendipities café is light and airy, which was nice during another very humid week. When we arrived we headed straight to the cake cabinet and were delighted to see it filled to the brim with loads of vegan cakes, pies and other sweet treats. Serendipities is more than a cafe, it's a space dedicated to creating and inspiring social change. Its parent organisation is Uppertunity which is a Dundee based social enterprise that works with adults with additional needs. If you check out their Facebook page you'll see they're hosting all sorts of events too!

It’s quite a small menu but with some delicious options at very reasonable prices. I opted for a baked potato with ‘tuna’ and Jilly for a bagel with coronation cheekin'. Our food arrived quickly and they were MASSIVE portions, we were stuffed. Jilly went for the 'jazzed up spritzer' drink which was Ribena, I opted for a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows – YUM.

Ok, so we may have been stuffed but there was still room for a little cake, I had a slice of summer berry pie and Jilly had a piece of the homemade tablet. The tablet was delicious but the pie would have been nice with some ice cream or custard. It’s so great to see another vegan place to open and with affordable lunch prices, plenty of options. We can’t wait to go back to try some of the all-day breakfast options.
