We had been trawling the charity shops of Falmouth, so were keener than ever to get stuck into some vegan grub. The cafe is very smart and clean, with pine benches and tables, together with a few green stools and food bar. I checked out the toilets, one for each sex which is great and very clean. I think there were around seven tables, so a fair size cafe really. There is also a chalk board for anyone feeling artistic, who wants to sketch down their vegan thoughts. On the shelves are mini cacti/succulent worlds.
We selected two main meals from the selection on the chalk board - Chestnut, Fennel and Tarragon Ravioli and Pumpkin Quesadillas with Refried Beans, Salsa and Guacamole (gluten free). We waited with drooling mouths for our food to arrive.
Very soon, our food arrived from the friendly staff, together with our cutlery which was contained in cleaned, reused and polished up tin cans, with recycled napkins.
Now, I have forgotten the times that I have sat down in a veggie or vegan cafe or restaurant, awaiting the arrival of my food, keen to tuck into the selection of vegan fayre that I had selected from the menu, only to be disappointed to various degrees. I can honestly say, that this was the very first time that I have not been disappointed to even one percent of a degree. We shared both main meals, and tried the ravioli first. Rose told me later that they make and dehydrate their own cashew cheese and that was sprinkled on top of the ravioli. It was a dish comprising of a few ingredients, but those ingredients worked so well together. The fennel was a wonderful, mild aniseed flavour, it went so well with the tarragon and chestnut. The ravioli pasta was cooked really well, really light and with the cashew cheese on top melted in the mouth. Then, we were onto the Pumpkin Quesadillas dish. All four parts of the dish were very tasty independently as well as complementing each other. The pumpkin Quesadillas were a new one for me, they were also nice and light filled with a great flavourful pumpkin centre. We had all too soon reached the end of our meals.
The Giandina was really rich and sooo, hazel-nutty, just like a cruelty free version of Nutella in an ice cream. The sorbet was really fresh and with such a wonderful pineapple hit. The fruity/nutty cookies were wonderful and went really well with the scoops, I did wonder how they fitted them in their oven though.
After we paid, we were given a loyalty card, which gives you one free drink after you have five stamps and a generous offer of 2 meals for 1 after you have ten stamps on your card.
Rose told us, that they having a vegan sushi night on Sunday 30th March and they plan to have monthly events from then on. My only complaint, is that Vegan Chat Room HQ is too far away from Falmouth and more importantly from Wildebeest.
