Lavender Love Tea and a Mint Brownie
Posted on 07 / 16 / 2014
I’m sitting in a small vegan place that just recently opened in east Nashville, Tennessee, called Khan’s Desserts Bakery and Café, drinking an herbal tea blend called Lavender Love, made by local tea maker called High Garden True Herbal Teas. I also have a vegan chocolate mint brownie on my table, with green frosting and a sprinkling of chocolate chips on top.
Even though I’m nowhere near hungry enough to break into the brownie, the tea and the thought of the sweet dessert make me feel satisfied. Food can be such an immediate sensual experience, that I sense how writing about it lets me express something very concrete and close.
This tiny place seems to work well as a haven for vegans and vegetarians, and for others as well. The outdoor seating is inviting on a beautiful summer day. The WiFi doesn't work well, though, so don't expect to be on the laptop internet here. The baked goods are light and refreshing. The sandwiches in wraps and biscuits also look fine. The chili looked questionable though.
Friendly, fast service, Tea and Brownie Taste good, Outdoor seating
WiFi didn't work, Very little seating, Pricey
