Respond to Review of Cosset
by misssakura

Review: We had read some good reviews of Cosset and finally got around to trying it today. I had hardly any food the day before so I was hungry! We drove past the cafe the first time and had to park and walk up. The inside of the cafe is going for the 'quirky vintage' look which is interesting but maybe not that practical when it comes to seating. We picked a little school desk by the door but it was a bit cramped. Anyway the menu is all vegan but they do have some dairy milk and yoghurt in the fridge. I picked the filo pie with the carrot salad on the side. My partner had the special of the day, the Garlic mushrooms (which were pricy at $15.50!). We also had a latte and a cranberry juice. The music playing was a little sleepy but not obnoxious and the staff prompt and friendly. We received the meal and my partner was a little upset by the size of the meal. For $15 you'd expect a huge plate but actually it was just a crumpet cut in half with what looked like 2 portabello mushrooms. All in all the ingredients probably cost them about $2-3. That said the meal did taste absolutely delicious and the vegan aioli on the side was yummy. My filo pie was nice and light and the carrot salad was fresh and tasty. I actually loved pouring some of the aioli over my carrot salad, yummy! For pudding we had the chocolate cake with some sort of cranberry jam. I think it was made from wholemeal flour which gave it an interesting taste. The texture was good, maybe a little 'healthy' tasting but after the first few bites we really got into it and finished the whole plate. I think their specials of the day are very overpriced for the amount of food you get. The pies are much better priced and the one I had was delicious. I will definitely go back and hopefully I won't keep asking 'are you sure it's vegan?'. Just not used to that amount of choice. :)
