Respond to Review of Satis Vegetarian Cafe
Review: We tried Satis for breakfast on a recent trip to Canberra and liked this cafe. Like other reviewers said,the breakfast menu IS very small and at a first glance we weren't sure if any of the food was vegan. The staff was helpful though and said that the big breakfast can be made vegan with scrambled tofu instead of eggs so we gave it a try. Our first visit was on a Friday and the cafe was not very busy. We had read a review of Satis that stated that it takes a long time for the meals to be served and that was definitely true that Friday. The coffee tasted great though and the atmosphere in the cafe was very cosy so we didn't mind waiting around a bit longer while having our coffees. And we watched the chef cook our breakfast completely from scratch, which takes time. We thought the service would be even slower on the weekend when the cafe is busier so we decided to go to My Rainbow Dreams instead. When we found this cafe closed on Sunday we went back to Satis and to our big surprise the meals were prepared MUCH quicker than on Friday although the cafe was busier. I guess there was more staff on and the chef had pre prepared things liked grilled tomatoes and zucchinis which made things faster. The food was a bit expensive and the portion sizes a lot smaller than at My Rainbow Dreams but it was real gourmet fare. I didn't see the weekday menu / lunch menu but I'd like to try Satis for lunch when I'm Canberra the next time.
