Firm favourite - Edit

I include a visit to the Flame Tree Café every time I return to Dundee for a visit. One of it's main draws is it's fully vegan breakfast and lunch menu which features a number of vegan options you just wouldn't get at other places including a vegan BLT and even just a simple violife cheese, tomato and pesto panini, so I feel like i don't miss out on anything. Not forgetting one of my favourite options which is the vegan haggis and violife panini filling. Not only is the food a breath of fresh air but it always looks beautiful - especially if you go for one of their famed rainbow bagels!
They are also one of the only places I know which still stocks the Apple Loves Mint Suki Tea I love so much, which is a must try if you're into that sort of thing.
I was very excited to visit again today as I had seen details of the café releasing a new menu and wanted to try some of the new options. They really seem to have diversified and brought out some really interesting flavours as well as upping their options of hot drinks and beverages. I had the vegan bbq jackfruit and violife panini but was left slightly unimpressed as I felt the jackfruit really lacked taste and was not nearly as good as other places I had had it. They also didn't have a great selection of sweet options that I fancied (but to be fair, there were still two different vegan options so i can't complain at all).
Regardless of this and perhaps some slight teething problems with new recipes and a wrong choice from myself the Flame Tree Café is still one of my favourite places and is a real haven for anyone following a vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or meat-eating diet and I think there new menu is just another example of how much work and effort goes in to everything this café does to try and make their customers have the best experience they possibly can.
I look forward to visiting again, and again, and again.

Pros: Fully separate vegan menu, Quick service, Really diverse, interesting food options

imaginative vegan options - Edit

Great cafe. It's lovely inside, modern and comfortable. The staff serving us were super friendly and helpful. There are so many tempting dishes on the vegan menu, they've put some thought into it, they provide 3 plant based milks for hot drinks and even serve vegan Mayo. The food is excellent quality and nicely presented. I would come here all the time if I lived close enough.

Pros: great vegan options , modern, friendly

Cons: serves meat

A new flame has come - Edit

Quite simply this is a wonderful place. Rather than paying crazy hotel beakfast prices we headed here based on excellent Happy Cow reviews and the dedicated vegan menu. We had the avocado on toast with rocket and tomatoes and a rainbow bagel both served with vegan bacon and sides of vegan mayo. The coffee was excellent and the free cucumber infused water was a bonus. I was bowled out.....but I wasn't sold down the river.

Pros: friendly , location , vegan choices

Cons: some meat

Great! - Edit

Fantastic little cafe with a nice atmosphere, not far from the city centre but in a quieter area. I go here often and they have a whole vegan menu. Great staff.

My favourite place for eating out vegan in Dundee! - Edit

Love Flame Tree! They have several vegan options on the menu. My favourites so far are the falafel wrap, Thai sweet potato soup, roasted veg on a baked potato, and their coconut crunch cake. The soups are always vegan (and tasty! try soup with your sando or wrap). All of their wraps can be made into a sandwich instead and they also have bagels. Besides the coconut crunch cake, they have other vegan cakes and even vegan milkshakes! And they make juices and smoothies if you want something lighter. Plenty of seating, good natural light, tasty coffee and tea. I could eat here every day :)

Pros: Lots of healthy vegan options., Tasty homemade food, can't be beat., Good value for the portion size.

Fantastic Place! - Edit

My husband and I went here for vegan brunch this weekend and we loved it! I had the best fresh orange juice I've ever had and a FLT which was great. My hubby had beans on toast - nice touch to serve the beans in a separate dish. Would have been back on the Sunday for the same again but our train was leaving three mins after opening. Next time I'm in Dundee I'll definitely be making my way here.

Pros: Lovely place in great location with friendly staff

Cons: it's not close enough for me to come here every da

love this place ! - Edit

I recently went for the first time to this cafe - and loved it. The atmosphere is really nice, and staff super nice. The sandwich that I got was delicious and they had a couple of vegan bakery goodies there, which I will try next time :)

I also bought a reusable coffee mug there, which is made of bamboo fiber and contains no plastic whatsoever and I am absolutely in love !

Will definitely go back .
