What a find! - Edit

You spend a day in the beautiful Dandenongs and then it's lunch time. Go down the mountain and visit Waratah Organics. They run an all day breakfast menu with some really filling options such as their burger bomb or nachos. Delish! For those wanting something lighter there are some cold breakfast bowls and wraps as well. They do serve eggs and cow milk but these items are clearly labelled so there are no surprises. The coffee is Jasper and excellent with a choice of milks (cow and vegan options). Prices are very reasonable, the staff are accomodating and make you feel welcome. Will definitely be going back.

Pros: Friendly staff, Excellent food with a great variety of dishes, Great coffee

Cons: Cafe can get a bit crowded

Great local cafe - Edit

Went here recently and had a soy latte and shared some vegan nachos. The staff were friendly and the food tasted great, though my coffee was a bit bitter for my liking. The place has a good vibe and the staff were very polite :)

Pros: Good vibe, Friendly staff , Good food

Cons: Coffee could be improved

A beautiful atmosphere, and beautiful food - Edit

As soon as you set foot into Waratah Organics, there is an instant sense of calm and belonging. All of the staff are so friendly, and the food is made on premises, and all organic (yum)! Whether it be a quiet period or a busy lunch rush, the staff are always efficient (wait time ranges from 5-20 minutes depending on how busy it is), and it is a great opportunity to look around and take in the beautiful surroundings!
Everything on the menu is vegan (unless you opt for cow milk in a coffee, or eggs on toast), and the super vegan nachos are to die for! The range of non-dairy milks also adds to the beauty of this place, and at no extra cost, it's a vegan's dream!
The raw cake fridge is filled with beautiful slices, even including a nut-free option! There are plenty of gluten-free options now on offer, as well as a range of juices and smoothies perfect for those who have come from the 1000 Steps.
If you are in or around Upper Ferntree Gully, and are looking for organic, reasonably prices food, then you've come to the right place!

bad - Edit

really bad.
20 minute wait for coffee
45 minute wait for food
4 staff members, few customers (at one point we were the only customers there)
all 4 food items (nachos, fritters, wrap & complimentary biscuit due to the wait) were very poorly done

Cons: food, wait

A real gem in the east - Edit

This place was a real rare find in the eastern suburbs. A very cute little cafe serving vegetarian and vegan fare.

The raw cakes are to die for and all are vegan and gluten free.

Prices are very reasonable here and a vegan dish of the day will set you back $12.
