Brno is about 3 hours on the train from Prague, but lately I’ve been thinking that it might be worth doing a one-day round trip just so I could go back to Vegan Sweet Bar, one of the most exciting vegan cafes I’ve ever visited.
They’ve got cakes galore…
…and all the doughnuts! As you might guess from the name, everything here is both vegan and sweet, making it my ideal cafe. There was so much choice, and everything looked really tempting. Obviously there were plenty of hot drink options too, including hot chocolate with cream – always a winner.
Somehow, I limited myself to ordering just the one sweet thing: the salted caramel doughnut. I’m not sure anyone is fancy enough to eat a doughnut with cutlery, but there’s no denying it looks classy on the plate. However you eat it, it’s delicious: sticky, sweet, and salty. The dough itself was perhaps not quite as good as the doughnuts available at Donut Shop in Prague, but the array of flavours was much more exciting and creative.
My friend had the smaller, even stickier raspberry doughnut ball, and was very satisfied with it too, in terms of both taste and texture. So thumbs up all round!
Truthfully, this place was disappointingly quiet for a Saturday afternoon – we were the only customers when we arrived. Things picked up a bit, with a few more people sitting in and several getting takeaway, but I still think this place would have been significantly busier if it were in Prague. Hint hint!
Are you lucky enough to have an exclusively vegan dessert spot nearby? Tell me all about it!
It is always sad when a sweets shop is slow. I am not sure about Europe, but I know in the states a lot of bakeries are slow, but make a lot of business by making goods for other shops. Like donuts for a coffee shop, I wonder if they do this?
Also that jelly donut looks like the perfect size!
Good point, that definitely happens a lot in the UK. Hopefully that’s the case here too!
The salted caramel donut sounds absolutely delicious!
Salted caramel flavoured anything is always a winner!
I don’t have an exclusively vegan place nearby, but Saturday I went to my local bakery to meet a friend and it turns out they’ve expanded from one vegan option (a brownie) to six! I had a maple pecan shortbread cookie and I will be going back. It’s so nice to have choices. Meanwhile, that doughnut looks amazing.
Ah, that’s an exciting development! Prague is great for all-vegan places, but is still very light on vegan options at omni places, which can make socialising a bit tricky. That shortbread cookie sounds delicious, I might have to try to recreate that myself!
