One for the west - Edit

It's new, but word has spread quickly. We had to wait for a table, which gave us the opportunity to look at all the lovely plants on display for sale. It's a lovely ambience, with an interior you'd expect in the hipster northern 'burbs.

We had a BLT on sourdough and a big breakfast. The BLT was tasty, but not toasted enough for our preference. The big breakfast was a decent serve and included tempeh bacon, spinach, mushrooms, tofu, beans, chutney and I had mine with a bagel (but could have chosen toast) and guacamole. It was a little bland, but ok with some extra chilli (on the table) and some added pepper and salt. The guacamole was delightful.

Enjoyed the coffee with almond milk, and was refreshing to be able to have a hot chocolate too.

Service is friendly, and there are a couple of tables outside if you want to bring the pups.

Pros: So many options!

Cons: Serves dairy

cawcophonous - Edit

Good to see this new vegetarian eatery bringing in a crowd, the food however did not deliver when we visited and the menu is very small.
Once our order was taken, the food came out very fast, the big breakfast was quite good value, but I believe would have been better with thickly cut tempeh (instead of tempeh "bacon") and the addition of a sausage and maybe even some guac. The beans lacked flavour, but the relish, mushrooms and tomato were quite well done.
The burger recipe needs work, it was lacking in texture and taste and a decent bun needs to be sourced; it was however a decent size and well priced at $12. No sign of chips anywhere though o.O
The business is new and there are bound to be some tweaks to the layout, menu etc; hopefully this will include finding a way to moderate the sound from the kitchen which was very loud and off-putting for the first 20 minutes that we were there.

Cons: Dairy milk, Decibels

Caw caw - Edit

We ordered the big breakfast & the burger on our first visit. The burger bun was quite dry and needed more relish or the addition of mayo to give it more moisture and oomph. The big breakfast was very good value at $17, but again, underwhelming flavour wise.

Early days for this cafe; I hope they will make some tweaks and improve and grow with time.

Pros: good value

Delicious breakfast - Edit

We came here for breakfast. I had a coffee which was really tasty and I had scrambled tofu and added mushrooms and my partner had the big breakfast. It was nice that they gave us a small plate with nuttelex on it so we could put as much or as little on our bread as we wanted. Both servings were a good size and I liked the flavour.
It’s a nice cafe with friendly staff and I’ll be going back. I need to try to vegan waffles

Pros: Cafe setup, Price

Delightful cafe - Edit

Light filled with plants adorning the cafe, it is a lovely environment in which to enjoy a meal. We had a cookies and cream milkshake (with soy milk and soy icecream) which was great. The big breakfast and Salad Special were delicious too. There were lots more things on the menu I'd like to try including the vegan waffles. Prices were reasonable compared to similar cafes. Staff were friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again!

Nice addition to the inner west - Edit

We came here for lunch and had a lentil and mushroom burger and the soba noodle bowl. The burger ($12 $5 for tempeh bacon) was delicious and moist, flavoured with mustard and pickles, and the tempeh was delicious and not too heavy on the soya sauce marinade. The noodles ($16) were tasty, with a nice dressing, although the chunks of broccoli and cauliflower were too big for my liking and didn’t mix into the noodles well. My berry smoothie with coyo was also very good for $8. Staff were friendly. We stayed for a coffee and chocolate chip cookie from the cabinet. Plenty more menu items to come back for.

Pros: Delicious burger , Good, reasonably priced smoothie

Cons: Vegetable chunks in noodle bowl too big

excellent food and super friendly service - Edit

Really excited to try this new place in the area and it did not disappoint. Delicious food and quality coffee. Staff were really accommodating about letting me change the ingredients of my BLT to swap out the tomato for cheese and I loved the vibe of the place. Will definitely be back regularly
