The truest Scottish dish! We make our haggis from ground lamb and beef, scottish oats, and seasoned with a secret blend of fresh spices, baked in our handmade buttery pie crust. The vegetarian version is made with the same spices, but with crimini mushrooms, red lentils, onions and carrots. They are both perfect with our handmade brown sauce, too!

About Celtic Tea Shoppe - Artisan Candies

For over 12 years, Artisan Candies has been serving up only the best internationally inspired sweet treats. And four years ago, they branched out to local festivals with Celtic Candies and Cakes, offering those same quality handmade candies and homemade cakes to a wider audience. But even that wasn't enough for these artisan goods connoisseurs, so they decided to expand the business even further into a food truck. Now, San Jose is being treated to a host of British and Irish teas and treats on four wheels, making it even easier to get international eats on the streets.

Really, we should call it a mobile tea shop. Because Celtic Candies and Cakes is offering that authentic afternoon tea experience, crafting a menu filled with fresh British and Irish teas alongside baked goods that are made fresh daily. And these aren't your regular old baked goods, either. They're traditionally made using recipes passed down over generations, including Irish soda bread, lemon tea and rum cake, even fruit mince tarts and sweet marmalade spread. But that's not all Celtic Candies and Cakes is offering. They've also got a smattering of savory options as well, including but not limited to hot meat pies and chicken salad. With a menu that's constantly rotating based on seasonal availability, they're guaranteeing repeat visits. Nice marketing strategy, if you ask us. To get a sampling yourself, find Celtic Candies and Cakes on the streets of San Jose and beyond. Trust us. You've never had teas or cakes or even candies like this. Unless you've traveled abroad. Even then, you're going to want to relive that fantastic tea party experience. And Celtic Candies and Cakes has just the stuff to treat your sweet tooth again and again.

MUST TRY

Irish Soda Bread - a perfect compliment to tea, this bread is leavened with baking soda and made with a soft wheat infused with raisins
