Vegan in Perth? Seven Breakfast Dishes to Pop on Your List.
NOURISH BOWL| DUOTONE
Downside: you will have to wait until 11:30 for this one to be available on the menu, upside: it’s a delicious fusion of wholesome, hearty flavours that are most definitely worth the wait. This bowl of goodness includes house-made hummus, a quinoa lentil salad, avocado, paprika spiced sweet potato, roasted tomato, a balsamic vinaigrette and their house-made seed mix. For dessert, try a house made vegan cookie, vegan raspberry ball, vegan raw chocolate smoothie or an almond-milk-soaked chia pudding.
Alright, I get that “everything” doesn’t exactly narrow it down but this “tiny but mighty” Northbridge café is chocker-block with so much vegan goodness that it’s impossible to take a wrong turn when it comes to their menu. I enjoyed their garden party bruschetta with smashed peas and avocado and their chocolate vegan waffles – YUM. The menu does change a bit depending on what produce is available, but you can always be assured of finding vibrant, delicious vegan meals at this spot. P.s. Don’t even think about leaving without one of their vegan baked goods – your tastebuds will thank you.
EVERYTHING | FLORA AND FAUNA
Panache is a one-stop-shop for grab-n-go healthy bites. Their vegan bircher muesli is a must-do and, if you’re in more of a savoury mood, they’ve also got their super food salad box (which changes daily) and their vegan falafel wrap. They’re open Monday to Friday and a popular haunt amongst the corporate crowd.
SMASHED AVOCADO | THE WOLF ESPRESSO
Need a tasty, nutritious smashed avo to “wolf” down between meetings? Enter, The Wolf Espresso. Their smashed avocado is served atop a slice of seeded superfood bread that is vegan, paleo, and free from grains, gluten, dairy, eggs and sugar. It’s filling, got a heap of good stuff in it (hello sunflower seeds, Kalamata olives and chia seeds) and the perfect fit for a range of dietary requirements.
CRUSHED AVOCADO ON TOAST | PERTH CITY FARM CAFE
Perth City Farm is a lush oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the CBD. It’s an urban farm, event space, weekly farmers market and place to reconnect with nature. While they don’t have a huge vegan offering, their crushed avocado on toast (without feta) is vegan, and the perfect accompaniment to a lazy morning amongst the greenery.
