This is one of the sweet treats on our vegan/ plant based afternoon tea. Our vegan afternoon tea at Metrodeco has proved increasingly popular over the last few years. As people chose, for animal welfare or environmental reasons or just as a lifestyle choice, our meat and dairy free Afternoon Tea we look for bakers who use quality ingredients and take their plant based bakes seriously in terms of offering items that deliver on taste as well as on ethics. We make our own vegan cream and use local suppliers for as much as possible so that we are aware of our carbon footprint. We have stopped using suppliers that can’t give us an alternative to plastic and offer a range of plant based alternatives to dairy milk at no extra cost. This is the same with our vegan afternoon tea as we don’t want customers to feel they are being exploited for their choices, even though in terms of baking dairy free often is more expensive to produce.
