Before we get into the review I should give a little background to Soul Cafe. The location was home to Pea Green Kitchen a couple of years ago. It was known for its delicious vegan options but shuttered just before we started the blog. It was bought and completely changed inside and out to became the Soul Cafe. There was no vegan food. It didn’t last long. Now the people behind Awesome Brownies (who sell Brownies at local markets) have taken over and vegan food is back on the menu. Phew. Backstory over.
The staff are really welcoming of vegans and will happily explain what you can have. We started with drinks. Two hot chocolates. It’s basically chocolate in a glass. It’s silky, rich and thick. It’s just the right side of solid. Food wise I went for a burrito. It has vegan chilli, rice and more beans. To be honest I would have liked something crunchy in there or something creamy like avocado and cheese. It was nice though. Solid lunch option.
Obviously we had to order a brownie then. As they specialise in brownies they have a few options, even better at least three of those options were vegan. We went for the nutty one. It’s huge. Giant. It’s dense in the middle, a little dry around the outside and it is pretty awesome.
If you are in the area for lunch I recommend popping in, or going to one of their stalls in Totnes or Newton Abbot.
