The interior is modern and minimalist, with lots of wood and lovely stencilling on the walls and a good play list of songs, to chill out too.
The menu is concise, offering breakfast, lunch, a good selection of teas, coffees, cold drinks, cakes and biscuits. However I am always suspicious of places with a huge menu, so concise I am more than happy with.
I chose smashed avocado and peas, with mint and chilli on sourdough and Steven had vegan cheese, basil and tomato toasty, along with two cups of teas.
We enjoyed our lunch, plenty of topping and filling on both dishes, though for my palate the avocado on toast needed salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Steven enjoyed his toasty with lovely melted cheese, though he is not keen on spiralised vegetables, but I love them, so he did a swap for some of my avocado.
I knew my friend Gemma Taylor (That Vegan Chef), was supplying cakes and biscuits to Steep and Filter, so we tucked into raw blueberry cheesecake and raw salted caramel shortbread.
The cakes were fabulous and so delicious, I need to steal the cheesecake recipe, as my attempts have been too solid, both were scrumptious and you would never guess they were egg and dairy free.
I really liked Steep and Filter, we had a quick word with owner Michael, who is looking to introduce more vegan options and possibly host vegan food pop ups, which we would love.
We have become regulars at Steep & Filter and today we had another fabulous lunch of banana, cinnamon and agave on gluten free toast and mushrooms, kale and cashew pesto on sourdough. We had two rounds of Waterloo tea with oat milk and a coconut and chocolate slice each, very much like a Bounty bar. The food was delicious, so Steep & Filter remains our favourite place in Skipton.
