Coffee #1

There is always a labelled vegan cake available, this changes seasonally. The soups, when available are usually suitable and there are salad options, some labelled as vegan. The salads are interesting and substantial. Soya milk is available for drinks. Any of the frappes that are not white chocolate can be made vegan. The hot chocolate is suitable but not the powder they sprinkle on top but if you order a soya milk hot chocolate they don’t normally put it on anyway. The spiced chai is not vegan.
