Vegan Brazilian cuisine options in Melbourne

I’d been here a few times and my last review wasn’t that kind but this place actually isn’t bad. We popped in for a coffee last weekend and ended up staying for lunch. The vegan options have remained the same - heart-of-palm coxinha, feijoada and moqueca - but they are staples of Brazilian cuisine, so it’s nice to be able to get vegan versions. I’d love them to do vegan pão de queijo like another cafe in Melbourne does though. The moqueca was pretty nice with a pleasant tanginess to it, while the feijoada is satisfactory, but ultimately I’m not so excited by the food that I feel like rushing back. I like the creaminess of the coxinhas and the flavour seemed to have improved/increased since my last visit. It’s great to have Brazilian vegan options, not a particular common thing in Melbourne, and I hope to see more become available.

Pros: Vegan Brazilian options, not common in Melbourne, Nice vegan moqueca and creamy vegan coxinha

Cons: Food not as exciting as it could be

Amazing Vegan Moqueca :)

The best vegan moqueca I had in years. The restaurant has a few options for vegetarians and vegans and they are loyal to Brazilian cuisine
