What a cafe should be

Posted on 09 / 23 / 2015

This is a cafe that seems more Brunswick than Geelong. The menu is simple but with imaginative combinations, the coffee good, the juices fresh. Every day there are specials. Ask for vegan food and you are understood, and there will be a vegan hot dish of the day. There are always choices, a hearty soup, a tofu burger, something tasty with quinoa . . . You will not be disappointed, and if you go back, you will be greeted as a regular. There are a couple of tables out on the pavement, and a few more inside, but food is served quickly and there's a speedy turnover, though you can also linger over a coffee and read the newspapers - though you couldn't call the stools and benches comfortable for a long stay. Children seem welcome. It seems to have become wholly vegetarian with vegan food clearly marked and promoted.
There is also a large organic shop next door, with a wide range from fruit and veg to organic wines.
There's a sign announcing Friday evening opening in October 2015.

Pros: lots of vegan choices, large portions, welcoming atmosphere
Cons: no lock on the toilet door - why?

yummy fresh food

Posted on 07 / 15 / 2013

Really enjoyed our meal here and we were able to sit outside with the dogs.
I had a tofu burger which was tasty. With fresh salad, seasoned lightly on a toasted bun. Hit the spot!
There are soups as well, today's was lentil and lemon. Also there was a curry on the menu today. Coffee was lovely. Service was friendly and the place had plenty of trade on this weekday.

Pros: fresh , healthy, vegan options
Cons: food tools while to come out
