I love eating food as much as I love exploring new places, and finding vegan options out of my ordinary diet is always exciting. As promised, here’s my vegan/dairy-free guide to Bath, with some seriously delicious locations you should try regardless of diet!
For a main meal
Tucked away in an old post house is Acorn, a vegetarian restaurant with vegan options that are a little bit more elegant. There’s only three options per course, but they are delicate, rich, and a little bit different.
I went for a Pine Nut Risotto with Butternut Squash, drizzled in lemon; it was rich yet cut through nicely, which for someone who doesn’t like rich creamy things was a nice treat, plus it was the perfect portion size not to overdo it!
Speaking of portions, the starter of soup of Parsnip and Hazelnut was a good size, earthy yet creamy smooth, so if you’re looking for something smaller to eat you won’t be disappointed.
Other vegan friendly restaurants to try:
• The Green Rocket • Aqua Bar and Restaurant
For a sweet treat
Oh my lordy, never has someone been so excited for fudge than me right now. The Fudge Kitchen is well known for delicious flavoured fudge, but they do have 2 or 3 vegan options which are equally smooth, sugary, and bloody delicious.
You can buy pieces (and I say pieces, it’s more like a slab which tbh I would build a house out of) for £5 or a box fo 4 for £16, 6 for £20, so it’s a lovely treat or something you can buy in bulk for baking, treats, melting, and freezing for months to come!
I picked up two pieces of Chocolate Vegan Fudge, which has given me much joy since – it’s got an amazing outside crust that melts upon eating, and a soft centre that becomes liquid in seconds. I’ve melted pieces to make a fudge sauce on ice-cream, eaten it plain, and made plans to add it to cookies. Needless to say, I need a bigger supply.
There are other shops across the country, but the staff in the Bath were so lovely you have to make a stop! Non-vegan flavours include Lemon Meringue, Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, and Strawberries and Cream – yummmmmmmmm!
For a quick healthy pit-stop
Finally we have Cascara, recommended to us by the staff at The Bertinet Bakery. It’s a small juice bar with a very tropical theme, serving up juices, smoothies, and a few delicious vegan cakes to take home on the train 😉
There’s every sort of flavour you could want, with the Kleío special being fruity fresh and perfect for 26 degree heat, to the clean green juices to keep your veggie intake up. I’ll be honest though, the Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter cake was my favourite thing – moist, gooey, fudgey, chocolatey, perfection, any more adjectives Lauren?
If you’re needing a pick-me-up to keep shopping, then defintely swing by here for a juice or two!
