This Sunday my mum and I took a trip down to Ozone Coffee in Old Street to grab some brunch.
Being the organised vegan that I am I did some research beforehand on their website and was happy to find that they currently have three vegan friendly dishes on their brunch menu (and three on the week day menu including 2 main dishes!)
Obviously Ozone serve impeccable tasting coffee – my previous trip here was to grab a take-away soya latte and it’s definitely one of the best coffees I’ve ever had. They use Bon Soy milk which in my opinion is THE best soy milk for coffee.
However, at the moment I’m avoiding drinking soy milk on a daily basis since it seems to have the effect of turning my skin into that of my sixteen year old self. Happily though, Ozone serve The Pressery‘s almond milk (for an extra 50p).
My mum and I both had a latte (mine with the almond milk), the coffee blend at the moment being the Empire Blend with notes of dark chocolate, sweet and orange rind. We both definitely detected the dark chocolate!
To eat I chose the Turkish style scrambled tofu menemen with smokey tomato & chilli on seeded sourdough bread and a side of herbed avocado. The other vegan options included Banana & almond milk chia pudding with nectarine & popped wild rice and Bruschetta with smoked romesco, burnt cucumber, heirloom tomatoes & seeds. Obviously there is the vegan staple of chips as well!
The scrambled tofu was very delicious – not too spicy and went very well with the herbed avocado. A successful brunch. After eating we had a look in their cake case and I was so pleased to see a vegan friendly cake! A chocolate and avocado – which we obviously had to take home with us.
I’m looking forward to seeing what vegan friendly options Ozone have planned for their autumn menu but I would come back here for the coffee alone.
