Food Adventures In Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne is a foodies paradise. Each time I visit, a new cafe or restaurant pops up that doesn't disappoint. They take coffee, food and cafe culture seriously here in Melbourne. Below are a few of my favourite cafes and restaurant for vegans/non-vegans alike. I was sure to include spots throughout the city, so wherever you may find yourself to be in Melbourne, a tasty vegan meal isn't far away!

St Cloud    644 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn East  Despite its rather random location, St. Cloud ticks all the boxes for delivering fresh, flavourful and creative Vietnamese food. They are super accommodating to vegans, be sure to have their charred eggplant w whipped tofu cream and edamame.

Laneway Greens
 2/242 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

I think it's safe to say this is my favourite vegan food spot in all of Melbourne. Located in the city, an unassuming sleek-modern space, you almost pass it by if you weren't to be paying attention. You can make a choice of smoothie, salads, grain bowls or smoothies for eat in or take-out. They update the menu often and are sourcing food locally from nearby farmers. They put a really unique Australian spin on some modern classics, for example, Peanut Butter & Miso Smoothies *it works, trust me* & housemate falafels served w Mejdra Lentils, Beet dip, roasted eggplant and wombok dill salad... YUM.

Hawker Hall

Perfect for a night out dinner spot, Hawker Hall blends Singaporean & Malaysian food seamlessly together. Plenty of vegan options and delicious cocktails. Yummy dumplings, too! It is the sister restaurant of Chin Chin & Go Go so you know you're in for a tastebud treat!

Matcha Mylkbar
72A Acland St

Now, I have listed cafe as I do hope there are redeeming elements to it. Unfortunately, our meal there was not so good. Could also be the 35+ degree day and no a/c we were melting!
I found the food bland and greasy, but placing it on here in hope that you may have a better experience.

Fatto A Mano
228 Gertrude St., Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia

A little hole-in-the-wall easy to miss bakery in Fitzroy. Super old school vibe, you enter through plastic strip curtain doorway into a bustling, unpretentious little bakery. Laden w many vegan cakes, pastries and gluten free pizza and breads.
