Reliable, tasty vegan options - Edit

The pancakes are amazing, with fresh berries, figs and vegan ice cream. It's standard vegan on the menu, and all vegan items or options are marked. I usually have the corn fritters, served with avo as I am less of a sweet tooth. These are a decent size and very tasty. Alternatively I might have the smashed avo which is high in coriander content, with hummus, chilli and duka. The vegan bagel is another option, which is usually made fresh to order.
Sweet wise, besides the hot chocolate, there is always banana bread and usually other baked goods such as muffins.
Coffee is great and they do almond milk as well as bonsoy.
Staff are friendly and totally on board with catering to our vegan needs.
There is outside seating if you want to bring your furry friends, human and non - human.

Pros: Always some appealing options

Cons: Be sure to ask for vegan as they also do non-vegan

decent vegan options - Edit

Quite a few vegan options or items that can be made vegan. Good, healthy, vegan options for kids too!
Service is always friendly but quality of food can vary greatly. Most visits, the food is spectacular, however, on a few visits, the food has been sloppy and serves stingey. Coffee is average - opt for a smoothie instead, they are delicious.

Pros: atmosphere , vegan options aplenty

Cons: quality varies

Nice little cafe - Edit

This is a lovely little somewhat hipster cafe, and not what I expected from the name. I had a bagel with a corn fritter on it and enjoyed it, though even with the quinoa and pumpkin side salad it was a fairly small meal (which was fine, as we went to Goje (just up the street) afterwards).

Pros: Pleasant seating enviornment

Cons: Small portions

Cool little cafe with vegan options - Edit

Visiting Yarraville we decided to try this cafe out. It's a cute place integrated into the train station and has a typical funky cafe interior. There are a couple of vegan dishes on the menu and a few more that can be modified. My companion wanted the corn fritters with avocado salsa. I enquired about this to see if the feta that would need to be removed would be adequately replaced, since the dish wasn't cheap at $17. We were told there'd be a good extra dollop of avocado and some hummus. We also ordered the vegan baked pastry with eggplant and capsicum, slightly cheaper at $13.50. When this arrived I cut it and something oozed out that looked so much like cheese that I struggled to believe it wasn't. When I asked one of the staff, I was advised that a number of other customers had thought the same thing, and I was reassured that it was from a special bakery and that the chef had confirmed it was not cheese. The pastry was fine but the quinoa salad I ordered with it was dominated by pumpkin, which I strongly dislike. The corn fritters were substantial and, while they narrowly avoided being too doughy, were quite delicious with the avocado and other accompaniments. I might well come back when I'm in Yarraville to try some other dishes.

Pros: Decent serving size, Cute place near train station, Delicious corn fritter dish

vegan brunch - Edit

This place is fantastic. As a local of 20 years I went here after seeing it on happy cow. I wasn't disappointed. The vegan stack consisting of pumpkin eggplant avocado and zuk on sourdough toast was fantastic, we shared this with avocado smash, putting Aveda in Seddon to shame. Coffee with vegan chocolate topping and finished off with hot chocolate drink also vegan. Sat outside with my 2 dogs, read the complementary paper and watched the foot traffic to the yarraville station and bus terminal. Would I go back... Shit yeah! Ps brought some vegan banana bread for later, what a treat and I've walked pass this place for years, who would have known? Melb vegans check out Dad and Daves. Submac

Cons: missed out for years by not knowing it had vegan c
