The Quay Co-Op is launching its first vegan afternoon tea (and it looks scrumptious)
It launches on World Vegan Day, November 1st.
Cork’s foodie Mecca the Quay Co-op is launching a brand new Vegetarian and/or Vegan Afternoon Tea at their Upstairs restaurant on O’Sullivan’s Quay.
Guests will be treated to a mix of vegetarian and vegan savoury and sweet treats from 2.30pm to 5pm Wednesday to Saturday, alongside the all-day dining menu.
Guests will tuck into savoury treats such as vegan avocado wraps, a mezze plate with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, traditional hummus, dolmas, toasted almonds and marinated olives served with seeded pitta before enjoying spelt scones with (vegan) cream and raspberry jam.
Afterwards, there’s an avocado chocolate cake, apple crumble pot and glazed carrot cake to devour over copious amounts of tea (or bubbles if you’re feeling fancy).
“Our Vegetarian and Vegan Afternoon Tea is a chic and tasty new addition to our offering at the Quay Co-op,” says Simon Tiptaft, General Manager of the shop and eatery, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
“It gives Cork diners an opportunity to experience a deliciously different afternoon treat. All of our food at The Quay Co-op is exclusively vegetarian and vegan and our focus is on sourcing sustainable and ethically produced food while creating delightful dishes to please all palates.”
Vegetarian or Vegan Afternoon Tea is €22.50 per person or €29.50 for sparking afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco. A festive edition will be served throughout December, featuring warming organic Gluhwein (€27.50 per person) and you can book a table here.
