Looking at the blue sky in that photo, it’s clear that this was a long time ago. After a gloomy weekend in Prague, I’d love to see the sky like that again! Last year, Dr HH and I spent the summer visiting places in the UK we had previously neglected. On our way home from Cornwall, we broke the drive with a stop in Bath. I was rather shocked at how many tourists there were, but I can certainly see the attraction – it was a charming little place. And fortunately, it’s also vegan friendly!
We went to Green Rocket Cafe for a bite to eat. It was a nice little place, with this rather interesting sign on the wall. The menu was really inviting, for both vegetarians and vegans.
It was a hot summery day, so I went for the raw spaghetti, which is available as either a starter or main. Oh, it was good: refreshing courgette noodles in a light, tasty tomato sauce. There was lots of flavour and a really nice texture. This was just the starter – I was saving room for cake.
There was an extensive list of cakes and baked goods on a blackboard on the wall, and everything available that day had a tick next to it. (A few people seemed to struggle to grasp that, and kept having their hopes dashed whenever they tried to order.) I went and had a look at the cakes before ordering anything, because that’s the kind of person I am, and when I saw that there was only one peanut butter and chocolate blondie I had to order it immediately. It arrived before the spaghetti did, and the waitress told me it was a smart move on my part, as someone else had just tried to order it. YES! Of course, that meant I had to endure a long wait before I could eat it, but that just made the event itself more enjoyable. Actually, it could have done with a bit more chocolate, but there was a fantastic crust and a lovely sticky peanut butteriness to it. I’d be quite happy to have another one of these today – and the lovely weather that accompanied it!
(P.S. I have finally joined Instagram! I have no idea how people get anything done when there are so many fantastic photos of vegan food right at their fingertips. I’m herbivores_heaven, come and say hello!)
