ceres, brunswick east (victoria)

big vegan brekkie at ceres

Our original plan for Sunday morning was a trek out to Box Hill for yum cha: however with our flight leaving at 1510, and our dreadful experience on Thursday where we missed the plane, we decided not to risk it. Instead we took the short trip to Ceres instead, where we commandeered three tables and several hours and delighted in all the beautiful dogs to wander by. I love Ceres, the ambiance is so great and it's laid back and it's like a world full of hippies.

The big vegan breakfast was delicious, the beans and the smoked tofu were definitely highlights but the mushrooms, spinach and toast were also fantastic. The big vegan breakfast was also served with a beetroot relish, which D enjoyed but which was not really my thing. Overall A++ for the meal, though I was disappointed that there was not more smoked tofu, it was so good.

D also tried the soy chai, on recommendation of everyone, and declared it okay (SJ and J also had the soy chai, and are obsessed, I think).

We picked up a brownie to take on the plane with us. It was okay, though a bit dry, which could be accounted for by the fact that it knocked around in my bag for several hours and then was sitting around on the plane for a while. It was quite oily, which was a bit of a turn off.

Look, just because J shouted down the phone to order him THE CHAI five minutes before he arrived doesn't mean we're obsessed . . .

i haven't had breakfast at ceres before, but i did get an amazing pear and chocolate muffin that floored me. I love the atmoshphere too, it's so nice on a cold morning when everything has that crisp light and the soil is dark. we got a lot of our veggie garden supplies from their organic nursury
