While vegans will always have fries, avo on toast and sorbet, it’s not much fun going out with friends when the menu is meat central. So, we’ve complied a list of places to go with your meat-eating friends when they’re sick of your endless acai bowl cafe suggestions. Here are 7 Brisbane cafes that can satisy both the vegans and carnivores in the crew.
#1 Sol Natural Foods
Pizza is one of the easiest vegan options around, minus the cheese, but Sol Natural Foods has graciously added vegan cheese as an option atop their otherworldly pizza. The sweet potato and kale variety is next level delicious.
#2 Pawpaw Cafe
Make Pawpaw Cafe your Sunday brunch spot, with the Vegan Breakfast Burrito’s gracious presence which is quite a feat to finish. If you have room make sure to grab a coco-whip sundae on your way out.
#3 The Lab Bar and Restaurant, Treasury Casino
The Lab Bar and Restaurant located inside the Treasury Casino serves up a mean high tea, but in even better news, they have an entire vegan high tea option (just make sure to give them the heads up in advance!). Bread and dips replace scones, roast vegetable sandwiches are an utter delight and you can finish off with fresh fruits. And don’t forget champagne is vegan!
#4 5 Boroughs
The American style burger diner, 5 Boroughs in Stones Corner offers delightful vegan hot-dog and burger options, cooked to perfection by chefs and served on preservative free buns with a good serving of salad.
#5 Cafe Wrapture
Falafel is life and there’s no better place to get your fix than Cafe Wrapture in West End. Their falafel wrap is truly a treasure to be acquired any time you are vaguely in the vicinity of the gorgeous tropical-vibe cafe.
#6 Bitter Suite
When winter rolls back around, make sure to pop down to Bitter Suite and grab an almond milk Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate that will make you wonder why anyone bothers with dairy milk. This is the epitome of an indulgent treat, minus the guilt.
#7 Botanica Real Food
Vegan cakes and cookies are somewhat hard to come by in Brissie, but Botanica has you covered, with different every day selections of cookies, cupcakes and vegan meringues. If you like a surprise then pop in on the regular to make sure you catch them all.
