Shop review #53 – Ostend may be self-labelled the ‘Queen of the Coastal Cities’ in Belgium (‘De Koningin der badsteden’), but it certainly doesn’t hit top of the list when it comes down to finding places that serve vegan food! A couple of weeks ago, I did discover a cosy little tea house in the city center, that serves vegan cake: Thee met een Verhaal (Tea with a Story). Yeah, what a pleasant surprise! – Update – see below.
Thee met een Verhaal serves tea (d’oh! 😉 ), and also has a similar tea house in Aarschot.
They also have some cakes on offer (of which one at least is always vegan – cake or pie from Madam Bakster). That day it was with chocolate and peanuts. Served in a lovely antique cup with mathcing dish. Really enjoyed it!
Service was very friendly too, and if you want to talk tea, this is definitely the place!
Thee met een Verhaal is a cosy little place, near the Casino Kursaal. A great addition to Ostend!
