Mad Cucumber The Triangle Bournemouth 30th April 2018

Mad Cucumber is a 100% vegan cafe, where everything is made from scratch by hand, using local seasonal and organic ingredients.

I love the vibe of the place, so relaxed, chilled and inviting, with plenty seating and an area with books and magazines to peruse whilst dining.

The menu is fantastic, with a great selection for all tastes, ranging from breakfast, lunch, cakes and a daily changing specials board, dependent on the days produce availability.

On my first visit to Mad Cucumber, I met Lizzie from Dorset Vegan, who is definitely worth following on Twitter, her website is a mine of information for dining out in the Dorset area.   It was fabulous to meet up with Lizzie, who is so enthusiastic and passionate about veganism and we had a right good natter.   I ordered a large black decaf Americano and a piece of chocolate cake, from the huge cake selection on display, clearly labelled with allergens, so customers can make an easy choice.

The cake was as good as it gets, light and moist, very chocolatey with a delicious chocolate buttercream and chocolate frosting on the top, a chocoholics delight.

I took Steven for lunch two days later and he loved Mad Cucumber's menu and their decaf coffee, as much as I did.   We both chose sandwiches, a chickpea pattie wrap for me and a gluten free dill cream cheese for Steven.

Presentation of the wrap was great served with its own serviette for easy eating, it was packed with chickpea patties, cress, salad leaves, pickled onion and beetroot houmous, probably the best vegan wrap I have eaten.

Steven enjoyed his gluten free dill cream cheese sandwich, packed with spinach, roast peppers and pickled onions and served with a big portion of healthy salad.

A third visit after an eight mile walk was for tea and cake, as the cake selection is massive, so I had carrot cake and Steven had chocolate tart.

I think the photos say it all, the cakes were gorgeous, scrumptious and delicious and begs the question, why would you put eggs and dairy into cakes.

Mad Cucumber is highly recommended.
