Cosy and yummy

Posted on 11 / 25 / 2015

The Treehouse has been my favourite place to eat (and buy groceries) for very long time! It is very popular with the locals.

The food is all organic and local, with veggie, vegan and some meat options available. They have a breakfast menu, simple but wholesome, and a lunch menu which has several options like vegan burgers (with delicious potato wedges), AMAZING mixed and seasonal salads, hummus, vegan soups (2 each day), jacket potatoes etc. which is all so filling and yummy.There is also a specials board which is absolutely fantastic.. usually two vegan options and a meat.Such interesting and creative dishes, so flavoursome.. They are honestly divine! Mmm!.. There's a selection of cakes too (vegan options available, including vegan ice cream and custard), my favourite being the orange and poppyseed loaf or the tofu mousse cake! Also if you're a tea lover there is a massive selection of teas.

The atmosphere is lovely, so many cosy places to sit, a little library (where you can swap, take or donate books), a changing art gallery and toys/colouring books for young children.

Highly recommended

A few vegan options

Posted on 08 / 19 / 2015

A friendly little cafe that has a few vegan options. We had the veggie burger with potato wedges and mayo which was very nice. Prepared to order so it came out really hot. They also had a selection of vegan cakes although we didn't try them. Nice for lunch.

Pros: Vegan cake, Vegan margarine and mayo, Friendly staff
Cons: Also serves meat

I ate here three times during my week in Aberystwyth. They always have two vegan soups of the day. Small bowl with roll, 3.75. I had Mediterranean vegetable soup with red lentils and paprika; another time I had root vegetable soup with barley, parsnip, etc., and homemade whole-wheat roll. Small Treehouse salad (greens plus two slaws), 3.25. Coffees and teas, cakes and baked treats, at least two vegan desserts. Some gluten-free items. Four hot main dishes each day (two vegan), such as pasta and Thai curry, plus regular menu of quiche, baked potatoes, salads, Welsh ploughman's lunch.
Very popular, and tables all filled at midday.
Breakfast 10:00-11:30. Lunch 12:00-3:30.
Mon-Fri 10-5, Sat 9-5.

Pros: vegan items, vegan soups, salads
Cons: crowded at lunchtime, too hard bun with veg burger

Treehouse - avoid if you are vegan

Posted on 03 / 07 / 2012

On arrival a customer was complaining and was given a refund. The table we sat at had not been cleaned. When I asked the staff member to do so she wiped a cloth over my side of the table only but left my wife's side dirty and left a milk jug used by the last customer. None of the other tables we cleaned as customers left. My curry was poor quality, the rice was a solid lump and there was an inedible side salad. My wife's veggie burger was disgusting and when she enquired what was in it the staff didn't know. The potato wedges were hard and black. The salad was not fresh. We both left most of meals.

Pros: Pleasant town
Cons: Dirty, disinterested staff, terrible food

THE place to eat if you're vegan or vegetarian in Aberystwyth. Although not exclusively V, does good range of vegan food including some cakes. Relaxed atmosphere but can get busy so best to book a table for lunch times. Even has 'library' of eco books upstairs.

Pros: vegan options
Cons: not exclusively vegetarian, can get busy
