Walking into ChariTea, you are met with a fresh, vibrant vibe and the smells wafting your way will make your stomach grumble, if it wasn’t already.
Local organisation Food for Thought opened up ‘ChariTea’ in September of this year and it has been welcomed with open arms and hungry tummies by the local community.
Located in Dumbarton’s Artizan Shopping Centre makes it accessible to all.
The Clydesider team popped in during Issue 17 distribution for a refuel, thinking we would grab a quick roll.
Instead three beautiful plates of scrumptious food were placed in front of us.
“It was not what I expected.
“As a vegetarian I struggle to find small cafes that cater for my dietary needs, so this place definitely has thumbs up from me,” Angela said as she tucked into her Vegan Caprese panini.
Also ordered was a flavoursome Tuna Melt panini and the biggest portion of the most delicious looking French toast with bacon Amanda had ever been served:
“It’s so light and fluffy. I’m not sure I will be able to finish it though.” (Plot twist…it was so good, she did!)
The café has a Pay It Forward service which allows you to make a donation to cover the cost of a hot drink or meal for someone else.
