Fancy a vegan pancake (or two, or ..)? LEO pancakes, Louvain

LEO pancakes is a coffee/lunch house in the city center of Leuven. And as the name suggests: they serve pancakes! We were here a couple of months ago, in the Fall of 2018. It was a nice sunny afternoon, and we could sit outside (small terrace in front). The menu mainly consists of pancakes, and a handful of lunch options (one vegan bagel available). Vegan options are clearly labelled. We had the Chocolate drops pancake (8€) and the Fruit circle pancake (9€) and some tea and lemonade. Unfortunately it took a very long while for our pancakes to be served (more than half an hour), which was a real bummer. Especially since the outdoor chairs are not really comfortable. The pancakes eventually came, and they were great! Loved it! Huge portions and as we already had lunch shortly before, we could not finish all of it. Note: Interior is wheelchair accessible (ramp to go in – didn’t see an accessible toilet though).

#205 Nice vegan lunch at conceptstore All About Eve, Hasselt

restaurant review #205 / Shop review #55 – All about Eve is a vegan concept store in the city center of Hasselt. It’s a combination of a restaurant and a shop, that sells cosmetics and body and care products. The restaurant is all vegan, except for dairy used for coffee and drinks (on request). All About Eve is just next to the main shopping street, on a very central, but nonetheless quiet location. We visited a couple of months ago, during Summer. There is a small terrace in front, and at the back of the downstairs level, and then inside seating is on the first floor. Menu is quite simple, and besides the standard menu, there are some specials noted on a little chalkboard (in the form of a teapot) on each table. We ordered the asparagus soup (which was soup of the day), with bread and hummus (7,5€). And the oven baked stuffed bell peppers (13€). Next to that, the tempeh salad with avocado (8,5€). And we had pancakes with pear syrup for dessert (7,5€)! …

Vegan pancakes at Kafethea, Maastricht (NL)

Kafethea is a coffee shop/bakery in the city center of Maastricht (the Netherlands). It is often referred to as a vegan bakery, but it also serves non-vegan (vegetarian) pancakes, cakes and pastry. This is from a visit a couple of months ago, at the beginning of Summer. On orders at the counter. Everyhing is vegan, except for the things noted as ‘not vegan’  (on the menu on wall behind the counter). There were unfortunately no pastry/cake options when we visited (one vegetarian quiche at counter). So we ordered a pancake, with chocolate sauce and vegan yoghurt and oreos (9€). And a latte with coconut milk (3,50€) and a coconut milk smoothie with banana (4€,  normally also with mango, but they were out of mango). It took quite some time for the pancake to be served. It was nice, although quite dense and ‘heavy’. We didn’t really fance the atmosphere at Kafethea. The interior is decorated with a mixture of old and new furniture. It was not really comfortable. Lots of light coming in in the front …

#147 Nice vegan fastfood at VBurger, Camden, London

restaurant review #147 – VBurger is not really a restaurant, but a foodstall at Camden Market. There is a bench in front, so there are some seating places. As the name says, VBurger sells burgers, with a selection of different sauces and with vegan cheeze. Everything is vegan. We strolled through Camden market after our visit to the Jewish museum where we went to look at the Amy Winehouse Exhibition, which was really moving. Camden Market is very touristic and very busy. Not really our cup of tea. We briefly took in some of the atmosphere, but it was too much bling bling, crowded, and noisy for us. And most of it is paved in cobblestones, which is a pita when using a wheelchair. Our main motive was to find VBurger (and also to see the Amy Winehouse statue, which we spotted later on, see pic below) and luckily it was in the first market place that we passed. When we ordered, there were some available spots on the bench, so we could eat our …
