Beautiful cafe

Lots of art hanging up, lovely selection of vegan cakes and tarts and some quirky drinks. If we’d have been in the area longer I would have loved to have tried the beetroot latte. Their turmeric latte with oat milk was amazingly, although it did leave me with a yellow ring around my mouth 😂.

Amazing food and beautiful interior!

The coffee & food is made beautifully, with care and attention to detail. Not only does it taste amazing, it looks amazing too.
Quaint little cafe, good location on the high street & friendly staff.
Dog friendly.
They are extending the cafe downstairs soon to accommodate more tables.
They also support local artists by displaying work for sale.

Limited seating.
A commission on art sales is 25% which I do think is a little high but unfortunately common.

Pros: All vegan menu both food & drinks., Dog friendly., Friendly staff.

Cons: Small venue

At last Maldon!!

Finally nice to see some vegan places rocking up in a Maldon.

The cafe has a nice chilled vibe and it’s good to see it busy when I go in for coffee and grub.

As with a lot of boutique vegan places, the prices are on the higher side but I’m always happy to support a local busy, especially when it’s aiming to be vegan.

Hopefully one day they’ll have the courage to drop the dairy milk 😉

Pros: Clandestine vegan joint, Cakes are great, Nice atmos

Cons: On the pricey side

Bagels are *chefs kiss*

Great selection of cakes/bites to go alongside coffee. We had the New York style bagel and were honestly thinking about it for days afterwards! Really friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. The coffee is seriously top notch too! #Veganuary

Pros: Amazing bagels, Cool, bohemian vibe, Inviting and friendly

Really good vegan cake

I popped in for some take-away, lovely range of yummy cakes, and other vegan snacks. Nice range of syrups to customise coffee, all the m*lks. Lots of interesting art on the walls, for sale. Great vibe.
