lentil as anything at the convent

I struggled to find a cafe open on Sunday morning for breakfast, but eventually discovered that Lentil As Anything at the Convent would be doing breakfast, so early Sunday morning SJ and I headed out to Abbotsford.

I'd never been to Lentil at the Convent before, but I've heard a lot about it. Pip bakes on occasion for them, and I was looking forward to seeing what they had to offer for breakfast.

What they had to offer wasn't extensive. It's unclear from the menu what's suitable for vegans, and when I asked I was offered only the one option, the Mushrooms.

Don't get me wrong, these mushrooms were amazing, the tomato and spinach and the spices all combined to awesomeness, and I really enjoyed it. But SJ got to order the Sri Lankan Breakfast which looked suspiciously like dosa, so I was a bit disgruntled that the filling was an egg and potato curry. Alas!

No cakes to appeal, I suspect because it was the day after Boxing Day.

When Lentils is good it's so good, but it can be so hit & miss...

Yeah, this is why I've not been so often! But it was still good mushrooms. :o)
