Spotlight on Jessie’s Kitchen
Life is a balancing act and so I reasoned the saintly (healthy Jushi) must be balanced with a little bad (well, naughty) and where better to try than the Dundee cafe place awarded Scottish Homemaking Outright Winner? I’ll cut to the chase: after ordering the carrot cake at Jessie's Kitchen, I see why.
The sponge was moist, icing creamy and the balance of sweet just right to entice intricate nutty and vanilla flavours to take a bow too. I have a confession. Just to check it wasn’t a one-off, I popped in the following week, this time choosing the Jaffa chocolate orange. The slice was just as generous and taste as wonderful, bursts of gooey orange mixing with the crumbling chocolatey sponge.
But it’s not just the sweet treats that are worth shouting about here. There are also hearty lunches, with a specials board that varies from scones to curries and a welcoming, family friendly environment which is second to none.
