Source Foods, HighgateMay 14th, 2012 10 comments
I’ve been meaning to go back to Source Foods ever since they laid this incredible Tempeh Burger on me a few months ago. Check that baby out! I was on my own at the time. Do you know how hard it is to eat a massive burger like this on your own? Oh don’t worry, I gave it a good nudge, and loved every bite. Unfortunately a lot of it also ended up all over my shirt and down by jeans, and since there was no-one with me to giggle about it with or use as a human shield, I also looked like some kind of loner Paintballing lunatic on the walk back to my car. Not the best look to rock on Beaufort Street on a Saturday.
Well, I learnt my lesson. This time I was savvy and dragged my friend along with me to try out their brunch. At 11:30am. With zero food before that and a fifteen minute walk to get there. We were (possibly a little grumpy and) just about ravenous enough to eat animal crackers, which was just as well because the portions here are HUGE and impossible to stop eating because they’re so delicious. We both ordered the ‘Vegan Heaven’, mainly because it was the largest vegan item on menu, and did I mention we were starving?? Organic toast, hummus, spicy beans, grilled tomato and mushrooms and wilted greens, all washed down with amazing soy cappuccinos.
The service was fast and fuss-free, and we were grateful. mmmmm, Vegan Heaven it was indeed.
Source Foods eco café is all the good stuff – fair trade, organic, and locally sourced where possible, and they have a heap of vegan salads and soups in addition to their brunches and burgers. Check out the pics and updates on their Facebook page for daily veg humour from their friendly staff and details of their latest and greatest tasty offerings.

I dare you to read Bex’ blog without smiling… Miss Sparkles is a breath of fresh air who just inspires with her contagiously happy personality and her insanely delicious recipes.
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
This girl is a like a breath of fresh air. I love her bubbly personality and her love of delicious, healthy vegan food. Did I mention she is an awesome Aussie!LisaThe Raw Serenity
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
