Cabin Fever, CBDFebruary 15th, 2012 17 comments
Hold the vintage phone! I have a hot crush on a retro little café, hidden down an Art Deco arcade…
They call it Cabin Fever, although I can’t imagine ever feeling like I’d been trapped in this little gem for too long. Filled with nic nacs and vintage treasures, I can’t ever imagine being bored there, either.
The staff members are just as adorable as the tiny teacups and mismatched chairs, and were more than happy to veganise their incredible bagels on request.
I chose the Green Eyed Monster (pesto, avocado and semi-sundried tomato), and my friend chose the Pumpkin Eater (pumpkin, eggplant, rocket and tomato relish). The bagels were soft, fresh and lightly toasted to perfection. Both came served with some balsamic-dressed leaves, so we decided to add them to our bagels before we chowed down. Just for fun.
I’ve eaten and enjoyed many delicious New York bagels in the past (London and Sydney ones too), but I loved how delicate these Cabin Fever bagels were – so light that you don’t feel like you’re lugging a whole loaf of bread around in your belly afterwards. Happy days if you’re wearing your vintage skinny jeans.
They tasted amazing, too!
And the sweetest part? $23 for two bagels, a soy latte and a San Pellegrino. TOTAL. Retro or what?

Bex is an incredible beauty, who is probably the cutest person I’ve ever met. She radiates positivity so much that she glows, or dare I say, sparkles. I am even more obsessed with Bex and her blog now.KristyKeepin It Kind

Rebecca posts awesome recipes and witty repartee, she is a brilliant photographer as well.
I love this blog for the density of information Rebecca delivers in a witty, fun way. Her blog’s title intrigued me and the content didn’t disappoint. It’s also chock full of great links that have been extremely helpful.
I love this blog not only for her awesome recipes, but also as a testament to how cool it is to commune with someone a half a world away (she’s in Australia, I’m in Colorado, USA).
I love Rebecca’s site. She looks so beautiful and her posts are so down-to-earth and fun. Vegan Sparkles is just an all-round cool site!MadisonVeggieful
Ms. Sparkles is an adorable Australian… We made the Cashew Cream of Mushroom soup and the Moroccan Sweet Potato Chickpea soup. Both were incredible! Vegan or no, you must try them!CatherineThe Catherine Blog
