The Dodge Brothers ~ Louisa & The Devil Album
When I first visited Wales (and fell in love with the place) I particularly loved Aberystwyth. For two reasons, firstly because of the sea front...we sat down there a lot and I felt at peace and could've just stayed there...forever..lol. And secondly for the Treehouse Cafe & Shop. ML had done a search for veggie cafes before we had left home and the Treehouse came up and was closest to where we were staying.
And although they weren't a purely veggie cafe...they did do a very good selection of veggie and vegan meals. I respected their slogan they had on their flyers and advertisements...
"Treehouse...Croeso/Welcome...herbivores, omnivores, carnivores and free thinkers all welcome..."
Downstairs is the shop and its earthy and organic and is a treasure trove of groceries (most of which were items I had been trying to get in England and failed) and fresh products. Upstairs is the cafe and is relaxing and rustic...everything a good wholefood and organic cafe should be..lol. OK maybe I'm pandering to stereotypes a little here...but it was just great..so I make no apologies.
So it only seemed fair that we call in whilst in Wales this time and we were close to it. We didn't eat in this time but I did enjoy a slow perusal of the shop and came away with a little bag of goods....
|Look! I was ridiculously happy with |
They have a very excellent selection of baked goods and I found a pasty that was Butternut & Pea filled.
|Sorry for the blurry photo...lol. Most of their baked |
goods are made in their kitchens...as was this one!
|Salad with a little pasty...lol And by the way..|
the plate is a tea plate!!! lol
|Gratuitous filling shot...lol|
Next up was another 'giddy' find...lol. I am a keen noodle enthusiast. Love them anyway they come and it's one of the sad things about going completely GF but I have been reassured by Trustworthy that I will live and find new noodles to try..lol. I also love miso..and edamame beans so when I found this package filled with all three things...I actually wehoo'd..the shame..lol. Oh well. Anyway....
|GF, vegan and just simply awesome..lol|
The other items were a bag of TVP mince granules as I had big plans to stuff a pumpkin whilst there but never got the energy to do it but it will most definitely get used up. And last but by no means least a Vegan Nougat Hazelnut & Dark Chocolate Bar...well..just because! lol
So that was my Treehouse stash...I hope if you ever find yourself in Aberystwyth that you pay a visit to the Treehouse...if not to eat in..then to maybe do some shopping and some take out soup they serve behind the counter.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope your Saturday is a fantastic one filled with laughter?
