Not that you need reminding, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We are the first to jump at the idea of crispy, caramelised bacon or icy chocolate shakes, but we all know how great it feels to fill up on a hearty meal that’s good for your stomach and the world around you. Vegan breakfasts in Brisbane are as tasty (if not tastier) than their meaty, creamy counterparts. Bonus: at these Brisbane breakfast spots, vegans will have choice aplenty!
Here's our picks of the best vegan breakfasts in Brisbane.
Botanica Real Food
Teneriffe & Red Hill
Infamous for their delicious lunch options and healthy sweet treats (seriously, if you haven't tried their strawberry cupcake already, you're not living right), Botanica Real Food has always focused on clean, healthy on-the-go choices that are anything but boring. Recently having expanded their already delicious menu to encompass breakfast, options include some top shelf vegan options including apple berry crumble, coconut yoghurt and rice pudding.
Sol Natural Foods
Two words: Brekkie. Pizza. Sol Natural Foods serves up an array of pizzas in the AM to get your day started off right. Any place that hashtags #pizzaforbrekkieisnotacrime on their social has us on their side. Pizza for breakfast not your thing? Sample their sautéed wild mushrooms and kale with nut cheese, sourdough and avocado or get in on their toasted spelt banana cake.
Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen
The freshness of Miss Bliss Whole Foods will never fail to satisfy. Start your day right with the chai pumpkin waffle with caramelised banana, maple coconut yoghurt and toasted nuts or pick up some granola with lavender-infused coconut and seasonal fruit.
The Green Edge
The Green Edge is brimming with tasty delights. Our fave is the tofu scramble with kale, tomato and capsicum served on toasty Turkish bread and topped with some zesty guacamole, but if you’re feeling like a treat nip in for their cinnamon and sugar dusted donuts. Calories don’t count if it’s vegan, right?
Charlie’s Raw Squeeze
There are two reasons we love Charlie’s Raw Squeeze. 1. There’s one in practically every suburb in Brisbane, so delish vegan eats are never too far away. 2. Not only are their meals yum, but they also have a range of sweet ‘nice creams’ (read: ice-cream that can be consumed in the morning, guilt free). Come for the gluten-free taco bowl, stay for the loaded salted caramel nice cream.
Vegans everywhere rave about the pho at Cafe O-Mai. Here, it’s not unusual to start your day off with a bowl of Vietnamese street food (in fact, it might be the best thing you do all day) but they also serve up a variety of freshly made baked goods if Vietnamese in the AM isn’t your thing (although it pho-sure should be).
You guys, we cannot rave enough about the stuffed mushrooms at Satori Organics. It’s worth a little weekend traipse to Sandgate for these alone, but rock up on a Wednesday or Sunday and you can even maximise on their spray-free famers markets. They’re even going to be serving up some sweet, swirly Cocowhip come summer — does it get any better than this?
