Another great month is upon us.
Summer is over and autumn is here, I have been working my way around the café scene again and I must admit, I am excited for the amount of new flavours around Geelong at the moment. Since going Plant-based, I have not struggled to find some amazing places around Geelong and the surf coast that host the most delicious plant based meals. So, I wanted to list my five fave places around Geelong/Surf coast that have the most bomb-digity Vegan food on their menu, showcasing a mixture of day/night venues!
Wah Wah Gee
Asian fusion food is my weakness at the moment. Mixing all Asian flavours together with a modern twist, Wah Wah Gee has been my go to for epic dinners. The thing the makes me most excited about this place is that they cater for everyone and have dedicated menus telling you ‘hey this is Gluten free’, ‘hey this is vegan’ etc – which is amazing. My favourite dish on the menu is the Thai style yellow curry with chickpeas and pumpkin… YUM!
King of the Castle
My go to brunch fave! You will honestly find me here most weekends sipping coffee, soaking in the good vibes and chowing down the EPIC Vegan breakfast. The vegan breakfast is made up of all the faves on a big breakfast including a flavoursome chickpea Dahl! King has a range of vegan options including a delicious smoothie bowl. I would definitely recommend this place for your next weekend brunch spot.
The first time I headed out to cockatoo was over the labour day weekend, and this place was buzzing. A huge open space, with a small kids area I was impressed. The menu is simple and clean and the coffee was exceptional. On the menu for a plant-based option there is a the flaming galah which can be made vegan. It is the ultimate breakfast – my plater was overfilled with tofu, hash browns, maple roasted beans, greens, the list goes on. It is definitely one of my fave meals going around Geelong at the moment!
I wrote about these guys a few issues back but it’s one of my go-to’s in Torquay at the moment with an array of Vietnamese food for everyone including some banger vegan meals (insert drooling face). If you do happen to get down here, I highly recommend the fried Tofu!
When a whole café is dedicated to being 110% plant based – screams on the inside! Everything inside this amazing space is full of plant based goodness, I cannot fault any item on the menu as everything sounds as good as it looks. Smoked tofu dishes, a hearty bircher,smoothies the list goes on with this place.
