Zekka Cafe, CBDMarch 27th, 2012 6 comments
Concealed at the end of a stylish laneway on King Street is a gorgeous little CBD hideaway by the name of Zekka. Warm and cosy in winter, cool and breezy in summer, and filled with attractive wooden furniture and lighting, Zekka always has the perfect atmosphere. Add the best coffee in town, a simple menu filled with great choices for less than ten bucks each, and competent and friendly staff, and it’s pretty hard to beat.
In winter there’s a special kind of comforting bliss in catching up with friends over a huge bowl of Zekka’s steaming hot veg soup with crusty toast. I haven’t managed to snap a photo of the soups yet, but trust me – with flavours like Spicy Tomato, Moroccan Sweet Potato & Chickpea, Beetroot & Coriander, and Potato & Leek - they are always a winner.
The lunch choices change daily to keep things interesting, and there is always at least one delicious vegan option. Follow them on Facebook and they will often post a tease of what is on offer that day, to get your mouth watering and your feet walking over there.
In summer I love the fresh and funky salads. Some of my favourite salad ideas sprang forth from Zekka. Combinations like:
- Apple, coriander, spring onion, red capsicum, celery, carrot, ginger, rice noodles and sesame seeds with soy, sweet chilli dressing.
- Cous cous, rocket, parsley, pistachio, dried apricot and red onion with balsamic glaze.
- Roast potato, sweet potato, capsicum, spinach and avocado with balsamic glaze.
mmmmmmm….. The breakfast choices are pretty sweet too, so HELLO, what are you waiting for? Get involved.

Mouth watering photos, inspired recipes and a really genuinely lovely personality. Oh and I love the Star Wars/Sci Fi references dotted throughout, so fun!BeckyVeg Hot Pot
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
A cheerful vegan blog with great recipes and photos I would like to eat!
Vegan Sparkles makes me want to go Perth! She has probably won The Sunshine Award a dozen times but she’s just too adorable to leave out of this list.LindsayLindsay is Vegan
