For the first in my Delicious Devon series I visited the Guardhouse cafe which is situated in the beautiful Berry Head, a nature reserve on a costal headland. The cafe sits atop the cliff and over looks part of the gorgeous South Devon coast line. The perfect setting for stuffing your face!
The super vegan sausage sandwich consisted of THREE Linda MaCartney sausages in two enormous slices of fresh grainary bread. Although there was no vegan spread, the problem was soon solved with ketchup and brown sauce!
I began to wonder if It was wise to have ordered the vegan coconut and chocolate flapjack too. Course it was! It was amazing and I would have forced that bad boy down no matter how many veggie sausages I’d just consumed! A great touch to have used chocolate in a vegan sweet treat. So many cafes don’t attempt to chocolatey treats, perhaps assuming sweet vegan chocolate isn’t available. However “milky” vegan chocolate is easy to pick up now in most “free from” supermarkets sections. The Guardhouse Cafe clearly know this secret and the flapjack was a good combo of fresh tasting coconut and sweet chocolate.
The flap jack was so tasty, my dad picked it out of all the other non vegan cake options when we went back the second time. He trusts his daughter’s good taste! If you go for the flapjack, don’t forget to order that soya latte too.Berry head is worth visiting itself, especially if you like strolling along the wonderful cliff top, reading about its history and checking out the cool light house. However, the presence of the Guardhouse cafe with its vegan options make this trip an absolute must.
