The Pizza Cafe in Newton Abbot has a great reputation locally for its vegan options. We decided to try it out on a Thursday night. It was rammed and we’ve been told that’s the case all the time. We did manage to get a seat though and started to work our way through the menu.
We began with the vegan combo. Purely because it’s hard to find a whole platter of starters to eat when you are vegan. The combo was carb heavy with crisp potato skins, buttery garlic bread, waffle fries and onion rings. Not the most exotic selection but satisfying and the garlic mayo was great and — not going to lie — I want to pour it on everything ever.
Pizza time: Kate went for the Mama Mia with pesto, tomatoes, pine nuts and spinach and I had As Good As It Gets with olives, spinach, tomatoes and feta. I’m not big fan of the base, it was a little bready for my liking, but overall it was a decent pizza. Kate thought hers had too much cheese, making it a little soggy in the middle.
Desert was the highlight. It was incredible. We split our desert which turned out to be pretty hard. The brownie came first and while it was absolutely delicious it ended up being overshadowed by the banana bread sundae. Vanilla ice cream, chocolate ice cream, slices of banana and hunks of banana bread. So, so, so good! And it looked so amazing that waitress had to reassure us that it was vegan.
All in all we’ll definitely be going back. We need to try the burritos and the milkshakes anyway.
