Delicious vegan high tea

Cosy location with different types of seating, plants and a very homey atmosphere. The variety of food was amazing and everything tasted great! You get to chose between five different teas and get an unlimited supply of hot water. Was expecting some spongy cakes, but sadly only raw options were available. Nevertheless would go back again!

Pros: Amazing vegan high tea, Lots of other vegan drink & food options , Cosy athmosphere

Cons: Only one toilet available for a big location, Only raw cakes available (vegan)

Cozy vegan high tea

Had a lovely high tea at the tea lab. It was rather busy but that made it feel more fun and cozy. The vegan high tea was amazing with lots of variety and unlimited tea refills! Be sure to reserve on time if you want to go on the weekend because it does get really busy!

Pros: Good value for money vegan high tea

Cons: Most likely will have to reserve

Fijne plek

Bestellen en betalen aan de balie. Lekkere plek opzoeken. Beneden, boven, aan een tafel, op een bank, bij het raam. Met zicht op de mooiste straat van Rotterdam. Vriendelijke mensen, lekker eten, goede koffie. En natuurlijk thee, heel veel thee.

Pros: Fijne bank, goede prijs, stads uitzicht

Not my cup of tea

Expected more. Don’t know why. Cause maybe it looked huge ? It looked pretty ? But in the end, it was basic. The sandwiches where ok and that’s also it. Food that can be made in minutes at home. Beside the cakes then. The service was nice. Happy faces.

Pros: Service good , Looks nice. Lots of space

Cons: Too basic and simple.

Leuke meiden en lekker eten.

Ik kom graag bij the tea lab. Het is een heerlijke plek om te werken. Veel stopcontacten (zeer belangrijk), lekkere koffie en eten. De meiden zijn ook zeer aardig. Het eten en drinken wordt snel geserveerd. Kortom echt een fijne plek om te werken en te eten/drinken!

Pros: Fijne werkplek, Lekkere thee en koffie, Leuke meiden!

Vegan high tea (at the new location)

I had the vegan high tea and found it relatively expensive for what it was because the food was, for the most part, a bit basic. That said, it's still enjoyable, quite healthy, a good amount of food, and just nice to have a vegan high tea option close to the centre.

Pros: Lots of space & light

Cons: Slow service

Didn’t live up to expectations

Unfortunately this place didn’t live up to my expectations. It’s called the tea lab, but the employees don’t know anything about tea. They’ve never heard of pu erh and don’t know the right temperatures for the different teas. The tempeh sandwich wasn’t great either. The bread was to soft for my taste (no sourdough) en the tempeh wasn’t cooked and spiced well which gave it that sour taste. Service is slow. We won’t come back.

Pros: Some vegan options

Cons: Name implies they know tea, but they don’t , Bread to soft, not chewy , Sour tempeh

High tea

Had a high tea here, a lot more healthy options than the ordinary high tea, so thats a big plus. The drinks however are in my opinion overpriced and far from special. But overall oke, I would go there again if i’m around.

Vegan high tea

Had a delicious high tea here for 23 euro, everything tasted great. Small portions of cakes, banana bread, grilled vegetables salad, sweet potato chickpea salad, power balls, soy yoghurt, spicy pumpkin soup, bread with hummus and jam, and of course unlimited tea. Was ready to explode but it was worth it. Only downsides were the acoustics of the place making it hard to hear conversations, and the slow service.

Pros: Delicious, Small portions to taste everything

Cons: Noisy, Slow service

Absolutely adore this place

I really really like it here! I live in Rotterdam and my boyfriend is not a vegan and he likes to have some different options, so this place is perfect - there are delicious vegan options, special dishes that are well taken care of, and also non-vegan options. The coffee is really good, there's different kinds of plantbased milk. There is a super delicious vegan high tea which I totally recommend. This place really took care of the vegan options and took it serious, I love that. I would recommend it to everyone!

Pros: Multiple delicious and special vegan options, Available for everyone - gf, vegan, non-vegan, Love the atmosphere! Very cozy.

Cons: The internet is not always working

Vegan cakes!

Besides the wide selection of teas they serve cakes, half of them raw-vegan. Totally recommended!

Fabulous vegan options

They serve vegan cake from sharp-sharp, make their own delicious soy yoghurt, and have beautiful vegan salads and soups. Very happy with this place, a real win for Rotterdam vegans.

Pros: downtown, homemade food, great presentation

Cons: very popular among students
