You know afternoon tea traditionally involves lots of dairy-filled scones and meaty sandwiches, cream cakes and desserts. Well, times are a-changing and there are 100s of amazing vegan afternoon teas to experience in a city near you. Today I am focussing on London specifically because London really is leading the way.
5 Vegan Afternoon Tea Experiences In London
There are several restaurants, cafes and hotels offering vegan afternoon teas in London. And, they are seriously giving regular afternoon teas a run for their money. Here are my top 5…
1. Experience Vegan Afternoon Teas At The Ampersand In South Kensington, London
If you love science… yes, science, this afternoon tea is for you. It’s full of fun theatrical elements such as jelly in a petri dish. There’s a very enjoyable guac and vegan cheese sandwich followed by a chocolate and coconut (yes please!) half-moon cake.
Book The Ampersand, 10 Harrington Road, SW7 3ER via Square Meal.
2. Cake Boy Afternoon Teas For Vegans In Battersea, London
If champagne afternoon tea is the order of the day, for vegans and non-vegans you can find solace at Cake Boy in Battersea at Unit 2, Kingfisher House, SW18 1TX. This is a kitsch-themed vegan afternoon tea that offers a beautiful glass of champagne, humous and vegetables followed by sweet and perfect macarons and sumptuous red velvet cake!
3. Experience Vegan Tastiness At Ethos In London Fitzrovia
This is a casual spot for vegans and vegetarians, and it’s big on plant-based dining.
