A definite pass....

So very disappointing, only one vegan food option - Alice and highly overpriced smoothie 👎😢

Pros: None ...

Cons: Only one vegan option - a slice , Very expensive smoothie - dearer for takeaway

decent coffee and treats

Didn’t look at the menu but they had a variety of plant milks available for coffee (Milk Lab, Happy Soy Boy, etc), selection of raw sweets, and a vegan brownie. That’s not a bad effort, in my book. I had a strong oat flat white. They use Califia which is a decent option. Coffee was just strong enough for me with a double shot but still pleasant. Ordered a raw salted caramel truffle but I think they gave me an apricot ball. It was okay, covered in nice dark choc, tasted pretty wholesome. Got a choc peanut butter fudge slice for later and the salty peanut butter top balanced the sweet date and nut base nicely. The Local just around the corner make better coffee with Allpress beans, Oatly, and more decadent raw vegan treats, including a delicious mint pattie, but they’re only open 6am - 12pm.

If this place used to have a separate vegan menu, it’s gone seriously downhill and needs to up its game. Vegan or modifiable options were not marked on the menu and there were no obvious options in the cabinet save a salad. I asked what was available and was directed to the smashed avo (minus feta) and the grain salad. Having read the previous review I asked about modified Shakshuka and we ordered this and the avo. While not exciting, the Shakshuka ($19.50) was substantial enough (avo and mushroom subbed for egg). The smashed avo ($17.50) was a bit tastier. When I went to pay, the total was $9 above what I expected and it turned out they charged me extra for the avo and mushrooms. They did refund this with apology when I pointed it out, but it made it seem like vegan requests were difficult and disruptive for this business.

Quick Vegan Bite to Eat in Inverloch

We were exploring the Inverloch area, and with 3 vegans onboard we were looking for a good place to visit for lunch, and this cafe looked like they've been around for a while and had a separate vegan menu (which we saw from a previous reviewer) so it got our vote. Unfortunately, when we asked for the separate vegan menu, they no longer had one but were still able to offer vegans options (i.e amend the vegetarian dishes to make them vegan). We didn't expect too much in the way of vegan food options in a small town but we were delighted with what we we ordered. We ordered 4 "Shakshukas" (3 vegan, 1 non-vegan). The Shakshuka looks like a middle-eastern type of tomato stew with onions and capcisum that's spicy and peppery (be careful if you don't like spicy food!). It was served with a side of well-toasted bread, and instead of poached eggs we opted for a sub of avocados and mushrooms (no extra charge). It was a hearty dish however not overly greasy which is great for lunch as you don't feel sluggish and heavy afterwards as we had some further exploring/walking planned afterwards. We also ordered an almond and soy iced latte each which was delicious accompaniment. The other vegan offering was the "Smashed Avocado".

On a side note for non-vegan travellers, my mother ordered a non-vegan ham & cheese croissant which she really liked also.

All in all, a very pleasant vegan experience and would come back here again.

Pros: Food came out piping hot, Food came out quickly, Service staff was pleasant and checked on us

Cons: Disappointed there was no separate vegan menu, The cocoa in the iced latte wasn't mixed properly

Great vegan options

We found this cafe using nearby on HappyCow and very glad we did. They have a vegan menu if you ask for it with a good amount of options. I had the chickpea shakshuka and my partner had the smashed avo. We also shared the vegan brownie (so fudgy!). All the food was delicious and filling and if I was in the area again I would definitely return.
