more vegan options than ever - Edit

The quality of food at minor place did drop off for a while there but they're back and better than ever.

There are several great vegan options on the menu, including a chia pudding with seasonal fruits, bircher muesli, the white beans (of course) and the tofu sandwich, just off the top of my head.

Coffee is still top notch.

Pros: good vegan options, cheap, coffee is ace

Cons: hard to get a table, very few vegan sweet treats

Great food - not as many vego options nowadays - Edit

Always been a great cafe in the Brunswick area, it is now missing a lot of the old vego items from the older menu. But it has replaced them with some decent vego/vegan options.

Very good coffee, highly recommend the whitebeans.

Pros: Whitebeans!

Cons: Small range, Price

trusty old favorite - Edit

At least 5 years ago, when veg*n restaurants were scarce, even in Brunswick, I used to live nearby and visit A Minor Place A LOT! They do great coffees with Bonsoy but that ain't nothing special in this area. They have a few menu items listed "VO" for vegan optional which just involves taking out the dairy. No substitutions made. In a neighbourhood where pretty much every cafe offers a few items that they can make vegan, I don't consider this particularly vegan friendly. They haven't gone out of their way to design vegan menu items but they'll politely oblige. Henry's White Beans, however, are and always have been a delicious, comforting vegan breakfast. Served on toasted sourdough, with dukkah and rocket, they're garlicy, creamy, and melt in your mouth. Gets me every time! Just remember to ask for no butter on your toast, or mention that you're vegan.

That said, given that HC discourages people from listening non-veg restaurants, especially in areas where there are other, 100% veg places nearby, I'm wondering why A Minor Place rates a mention. Perhaps because they stock vegan muffins, brownies, and other baked goods from Crumbs. A thoughtful touch in an otherwise not particularly vegan-friendly cafe.

Pros: Henry's White Beans, vegan baked goods

Cons: no specifically vegan menu items, few options, no substitutes for dairy, etc

Tiggy 22 Mar 2015 - I have to agree with you in wondering why this place is listed on Happy Cow. It's no more vegan-friendly than most of the hipster cafes in the area - and that means not very.

verbosity 02 Dec 2015 - I assume that A Minor Place is still valid due to there being very few eateries listed in Brunswick
