Bliss is great
03 May 2011
Great vegan (mostly organic) food. Most of the menu is or can be gluten free and there are raw options too. Raw cakes are a recent addition.
Coffee is good and you have the choice of soy, oat, or rice milk.
Great one-stop-vegan retail shop on site too.
Donner menu changes seasonally, and opening hours have recently been extended.

I had an incredible hot dog with cashew cheese, biocheese, avo, in a lovely bun with a delicious creamy sauce. Highly recommend. Excellent smoothies too.

A handy colour coding system tells you which products are gluten free, vegan, etc.
My fav is the melting moment biscuits. Mmm!
Easy to get to using public transport - it's right near tram stop 4.

PAWS is awesome
10 Jun 2011
On a recent trip to Perth I stayed in the suburb of Northbridge (directly north of the CBD, many hostels located here). Just around the corner from my accommodation was PAWS.
This cafe offers a range of hot foods each day, as well as raw food. I had a small mixed plate of hot foods (curries, etc) for just $7 - quite a large serve. I think the large was $12.
Also had an amazing coconut smoothie and on my second visit a green juice. Both were made fresh and delicious.
The cafe is also a shop where you can find a wide range of vegan cosmetics, foods, etc. As well as that there's an organic fruit and veg market held on weekends.
Staff were nice.
Not really a cafe atmosphere, as the seating was large business type tables. But don't let that put you off - this place is really great! Loved it.

I love this place. The desserts are amazing and the main menu changes monthly (yes, monthly!) so you'll never get bored.
There are tasting platters of 4 desserts for 2 people to share if you just can't decide what to pick.
Staff, and particularly the owner, are friendly and accommodating.
The best tip is arrive at/before 8 pm if you want a table. This place fills up most nights and quickly! There is a heater out the front to keep those in the line warm (it's just like a nightclub - but nicer!). You can book if you're coming with a group of 6 or more. They also do takeaways.
As I said the main dessert menu changes every month, but there is an asian dessert menu which remains the same (the sticky rice sundae is one of my faves). Also there is a small savouries menu, which are snack size not meal size. These are also good, and sometimes having a savoury snack helps you appreciate the sweets more :D
Vegan items or options are clearly marked on the menu.
Coffee is of the plunger variety - but who cares, you're there for the dessert not the coffee! You should have an iced chocolate or coconut juice if plunger coffee upsets you.
I've been here 8 or so times (maybe more...) and I've never had something I didn't like.

Big vegan brekkie!
28 Nov 2012
I used to live nearby and loved going to the Hawker Street Cafe for breakfast. In the All Rounder section of the menu there is both a vegetarian and vegan option. The vegan is a huge serving of mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, pumpkin, maybe zucchini (changes seasonally) and toast. All delicious. Not too pricey at $15 I think. Good coffee too. There's a wonderful vintage shop next door. Closes at 2pm so don't sleep in too late!

I've been here twice and don't particularly like it. I find the food heavy on carb i.e. the meal is 90% noodle or rice with a couple of veggies on top. Maybe some people are happy to eat like that, but I'd much rather the ratio reversed!
As for entrees the salt and pepper tofu is not good. It's just fried tofu with no discernible salt or pepper taste. The spring rolls don't have a lot of flavour either. 'Chicken' nuggets are ok if you like that kind of thing. All were served with the same sweet tomato sauce. A friend said the shallot cakes here are great, but they were out the night we were there (the same friend said the salt and pepper tofu was great, so ...)
I wouldn't have gone back for a second time, except that my friend organised it.
It's open weekday evenings which is good as most of the veg places in Adelaide aren't.
