I had such a lovely day in Sydney today. My fiance and I spent the day with another couple who invited us to join them on a little stroll around Sydney’s Paddington and Surry Hills neighborhoods. In the late afternoon, were walking down Crown street and decided to have a quick bite at one of the many cafes lining the street. We were approaching The Winery on the opposite side of the street, but there was no way that I was going there again. Kawa on our side of the street looked really cute and after a quick glance at the lunch menu, I planned on ordering one of the salads (hold-the-cheese). However, once we sat down and had a chance to look at the full menu, my fiance mentioned that they had a Vegan Big Breakfast. Sweet!
The Vegan Big Breakfast includes:
- Ripe avocado
- Roast pumpkin
- Slow roasted tomato with basil
- Sauteed mushrooms
- Homemade baked beans
While it looked pretty basic, it was actually quite yummy. The homemade baked beans and hummus were especially delicious. I’m a big fan of eating these types of foods for breakfast and even if a restaurant doesn’t have an explicit vegan dish, I’ll often put together a combination of spinach/mushroom/tomato/avocado. It’s such tasty comfort food! Anyway, this was a good little breakfast but in my opinion, the Vegan Grilled Lemon Corn Bread breakfast just 10-minutes down the road at Mad Spuds Cafe is much better value for the money (see my review of Mad Spuds Cafe). It’s a much more complex meal that doesn’t feel like a bunch of side dishes thrown better. Regardless, this is still a great vegan breakfast and I have to give props to any restaurant that offers a vegan option on their menu. Thanks Kawa!
