This week while in Worcester (20th August 2010) I visited two cafes that catered for vegans. The first was The Karmic Cafe (more on this one later) and the second was Charlie’s. While Charlie’s is not a Vegetarian cafe
and does serve meat to any customers that would wish, I was surprised by their vegan selection and understanding of what I could/ couldn’t eat. I have to admit I am sometimes a little weary of eating at non vegetarian restaurants and worry when I have been forced to about the vacant look in the eyes of the waiter/waitress when I mention the word vegan. I however wasn't worried about eating here at all, the lady who served us was really helpful and even offered to do something else if I didn't fancy any of the vegan options on the board. While I was there I had the main of mushroom tart with chips and salad and for desert a chocolate and peanut butter cupcake.
The service was quick, although we were the only customers at this time so couldn't comment on whether it's always that speedy!
My main was lovely and the cupcake was a real treat, if you ever find yourself in Worcester I would recommend a visit.
