#171 Vegan donuts at Dough Society, London

restaurant review #171 – Dough Society is a vegan donut cafe in the far East of London, in Hackney. It is located in a side alley of Mare Street. Standard donuts are £3, specialties  (labelled with *) are £3,5. I have no idea whether that is considered cheap or expensive (no experience in donuts 😉 ) but it seemed fair value to us. We ordered two donuts, one with peanut butter and banana, and one with peanut butter and pretzel (both £3,5). And a latte (£2,8). The donuts were very nice! And they were rather big, we could have easily just shared one (seeing that this was meant to be just an in between snack). Although there was a wall with some plants at the back of the cafe, the atmosphere felt kind of cold and not so cosy. Not so comfortable hard wooden chairs and barstools (some cushions would be nice). Everything at Dough Society is at ground level, with a no-stepp access. Forgot to take a photo of toilet (why do I otherwise …

#71 – Vegan cakes and pie at Vero Caffè, Bruges ***

Restaurant review #71 – Vero Caffè is a coffee and tea bar in the city center of Bruges, not far from the central Market Square and the Burg. So far, it’s one of the few places in Bruges where you can order a soy lattè or a vegan hot chocolate. Since a couple of weeks, Vero Caffè also serves vegan cakes and pies on Thursday, made by Marieke from Chez Mariette. Hurray! It was hard to choose from all those delicious looking cakes and pies. I went for the apple pie with a lemon tea. Very nice! The place is bright, spacious, and cosy, and there is also a terrace in front. Chairs are a bit uncomfortable, some cushions on the chairs would be nice and would make it a bit more relaxed (there are some couches in the front though). Service was friendly and quick. Toilet in the back was clean. We sure hope those vegan pies and cakes will become available every day!

#51 Nice lunch at vegan Fortify Café in Maidstone (UK) ****

Restaurant review #51 – On our route from Dover to Brighton, we stopped in Maidstone for lunch. When looking at a map of the south east of England, Maidstone isn’t exactly in between Dover and Brighton, but it is very close to the M20, which turns out to be a faster and easier route to Brighton than driving through the small coastal towns (which can also be nice, we did this a couple of years ago). It’s a small town, and the city center is easily accesible from one of the parkings at the edge (oh, and there’s even a Lush! shop with vegan toilteries and care products). Fortify Café was recommended to us in one of the vegan FB groups, when we asked for suggestions to eat on route to Brighton. Perfect stop: about half way in our journey, and we arrived just after noon. UPDATE SEE BELOW As the name suggest, it’s not really a restaurant, but more a bistro/café style place, with also take away option, and some seats outside. We had some orange juices (£3) to drink. Which …
