A bit sad

Posted on 08 / 14 / 2013

I came here super excited to try a new tea place. I used to work at Cargo and James on whyte and was really excited to hear of a tea place that served all vegan desserts.

It took me forever to find this place and when I did, they were out of sandwiches and only 2 of the 8 desserts were vegan. I was super bummed out by this. I ordered a piece of cake and it was pretty dry when I received it. I shrugged that off because they just opened recently. I also had to make super sure my tea latte wasn't sweetened with honey.

Vegans double check everything. I was sad that I had to ask some many questions considering I'd heard such great things and like the description up top says that everything was vegan.

Pros: Cute and small, Vegan desserts
Cons: Hard to find, Not everything vegan, Honey used as a tea sweetner
