Perth

Daily Planet, Mount Lawley

  I’d read mixed reviews about the Daily Planet Cafe on Perth vegan forums and protested as Dom dragged me past Veggie Mama last Sunday morning (we still love you, Veggie Mama!  We will be back!).  I get so tired sometimes of paying $18 for a couple of mushrooms on toast at non-veg cafes where you have […] Read more…

V Burger Bar, East Victoria Park

    The fact that it was almost 2pm on a Friday and the place was packed should have been the giveaway. As I jostled my way to the counter to peruse the menu and place my order, the wait staff were friendly and attentive.  With enthusiasm they called the Chef in to consult on vegan […] Read more…

Thailicious, Northbridge

  I love how Thai restaurants in Australia (or everywhere?) have such kooky names.  Any restaurant that can get me giggling before I even enter their premises is a winner in my book.  It doesn’t get much more zany than ‘Thailicious’, and the fact that they’re located in Northbridge was enough to get me giggling […] Read more…

Metrio & Co, North Perth

  I love going to Metrio & Co for breakfast.  The warm energy, fast service and large portions are a guaranteed winner to kick off any weekend day. In the past they didn’t have a lot of vegan options to write about – it was more a case of asking for alterations to dishes on […] Read more…

City Farm Cafe, East Perth

  Once upon a time there was a hungry vegan who caught the train through Claisebrook Station every morning and wondered about the ‘Perth City Farm‘ rumoured and signposted to exist behind the large stone wall.  An organic oasis and shining beacon of sustainability in the middle of the city??  She was curious, but not curious enough […] Read more…

CNR Cafe, Northbridge

I first spied photos of CNR Cafe’s vegan offerings when I joined the Perth Social Vegans Meetup Group and I’ve dreamed about visiting them ever since. Last weekend I finally got my wish… It was a Sunday afternoon… People lounged on bean bags in the Northbridge Piazza, soaking up the winter sunshine and the free […] Read more…

Annalakshmi on the Swan

How good is Facebook? Oh I know it can be a black hole sometimes (time suckage, anyone?) but for finding information, events and long-lost friends, it’s pretty hard to beat. I had only been to Annalakshmi once before when my long-lost school friend Vish contacted me via Facebook to let me know that she would […] Read more…

Aisuru Sushi, Northbridge

Do you dream of a restaurant opening in Perth with a dedicated vegan menu? Well dream no more, my friend. It’s here and it’s enough to tempt this sparkly vegan right out of her food comfort zone. I’ve never been a Japanese food fan. I’ve only ever known sushi as cold, clammy rice rolls sold […] Read more…

Source Foods, Highgate

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, […] Read more…

Jus Burgers, Northbridge

  mmmmm, burgers…  A great burger is pretty hard to beat, but for some reason it’s pretty hard to find an awesome burger these days, right? Well fear not, because I have discovered that Jus Burgers serve up the best vegan burgers on the planet!  I know, I know, that’s a huge call, but I’ve […] Read more…

La Cholita, Northbridge

  Unless you’ve been living under a cactus, you’ll know that the recent arrival of La Cholita had all of Northbridge buzzing.  Mexican tapas-style food and 67  types of Tequila??!  Ole!! Word on the street was that they had some pretty smokin’ vegan options on their menu.  So in the name of Mexican adventure I donned my best Senorita outfit, rounded […] Read more…

PAWS Cafe are BACK, baby!

  PAWS finally re-opened this week after an extended break over the summer holidays!  WHOOHOO!! (Not that I’d been counting down or getting edgy wondering when I was going to get my next Funky Pies fix or anything…)   The PAWS crew have been busy over the break – the re-organisation of the store looks […] Read more…
