First Review by mscabbage

Great new breakfast spot in New Farm - Edit

We tried Dicki's for the first time this morning, and were very pleased. Friendly service, great coffee, and we loved the food. We actually didn't realise it was a vegan café until we started eating. Food was delicious. AND they even have real pot plants (not like the previous café in there with their plastic pots). Very #happycow, and we'll be back for more.

Pros: great coffee and food, friendly staff, real pot plants

Cons: small space but worth the wait

DELICIOUS - Edit

the bao! Omg amazingly crispy tofu and beautiful authentic flavours in a soft bun. Breakfast burrito was moorish and delicious and the cold brew was spot on. Only thing was the inside smelt of old cooking oil and it was a little uncomfortable. Would advise sitting outside.

Great Spot - Edit

I went on the opening weekend and had scrambled tofu to see how the new cafe handled a vego classic. I really enjoyed it - it came with mushrooms which were done beautifully. It was very filling. The orange juice was fresh and delicious. I am so hoping this place thrives as it is in a very prominent location in an affluent area. They have beautiful desserts on display on the front counter including Croissants! which will appeal to customers who have no idea it is all vegan. They could be a huge influence in the community.

Service is fantastic - Edit

Shame about the food.

Went there this morning. Obviously a busy day being easter weekend. Ordered the buritto breakie with a side of mushies. It was SO dry, both of them. Even with the salsa and sauce. Ordered a coffee to go and it was so bitter I threw it out :-(

I would've thought to give it another go except that the food on the table beside me looked dry, tiny portions and not great. And I honestly don't mind small portionsif the food is good.

Shame 'cause I love supporting vegan restaurants.

Service was great and really nice vibe. Give it 3 stars for service. 0 for quality of food :-(

Pros: lots vegan options

Cons: expensive and crap food

delicious, but expensive - Edit

I made the choice to come here at least twice before I wrote a review, because I wanted to give a couple of menu items ago. The first time I came here, I got an iced coffee and the smashed ago with macadamia cheese. The iced coffee was phenomenal, but the meal was ~$15 for only one piece of toast with barely a spoonful of cheese. I promised myself I'd come back and give the menu another go, if only to have another amazing iced coffee ($7, with the most delicious vanilla bean coconut icecream).

On my second trip, of course I ordered another iced coffee, but I ordered an E.L.T (eggplant, lettuce, tomato) as my meal. The server asked what milk I'd prefer, listing full cream and skim as options, so I question the vegan status of this venue. Ended up costing me $22, so this place is definitely on the "too expensive given the portion size" side for me, plus the full cream milk bottles in the fridge confirm for me this place is vegetarian.

Yep, I'm going to keep coming back here. Third time's the charm; the breakfast burrito was phenomenal.

Pros: delicious, iced coffees are amazing

Cons: expensive, very small portions given price, not completely vegan, serves cow's milk

Dicki's 06 Apr 2018 - Thank you for your constructive feedback! We are so pleased you enjoyed the ELT and burrito. Regarding the smashed avo, we have taken the feedback we have received and now serve 2 slices of toast. Majority of our clientele are not vegan so providing dairy milk gives omnis the opportunity to try a vegan meal where they wouldn't have if they go somewhere else for coffee. 4 regular customers have now converted to soy or almond mylk :-)

Great food and coffee - Edit

A really nice little cafe with great food and coffee. Almost all of the menu is vegan (I think the only non-vegan item is the option of dairy milk in beverages). I've been here twice and the food was excellent on both occasions.

Pros: lots of vegan options , great food , good coffee

Cons: none

Dicki's 05 Apr 2018 - Thanks for that! We only offer dairy milk for coffees, we use alt mylks for our other beverages. As majority of our clientele aren't vegan, offering dairy milk for coffee gives omnis the opportunity to try a vegan meal where they wouldn't have if they go somewhere else for coffee. Since opening our doors, 4 customers have converted to either soy or almond mylk :-)

Great food - Edit

I went here on a busy Saturday morning. The wait staff sat us straight away but unfortunately it was very loud so we asked to get our food take away which they happily did. The waitress bought us our drink and gave us a seat while we waited. The service was quick and efficient.

The food was tasty and fresh but the serving sizes are rather small for my appetite. The corn fritters are lovely, fluffy and flavoursome. The breakfast burrito was the most hardy and had a simple but enjoyable flavour. The peanut butter shake was very nice.

Pros: Quick service , Tasty food , Lots of great vegan options

Cons: Can get loud , Portions on the smaller side , A bit pricy
