We’ve picked some top spots across the UK where you can brighten up your week with a very special plant-based afternoon tea. 

The North of England

The much loved Goji Cafe in York has an exciting traditional vegan afternoon tea. If you don’t fill up on scones, tarts, quiches and sandwiches with your tea, then be sure to take home as much as you can carry from their deli afterwards.
