Refreshing restaurant/cafe under new residential apartment high-rise. So rare to find a veggie/vegan establishment of such quality. Dine in or takeaway. Hot foods, combination plate, salads, desserts, ethical chocolates and coffee. Fresh, wholesome and varied menu. Don't be put off because it's veggo - you don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy great coffee. Hearty but not wasteful portions. Opens early so you can grab brekkie. Order at the counter and dine at the rustic wooden tables outside. Who'd have thought you'd be going back for a 2nd serve of a sago (velvety dessert topped with fresh fruit puree).
Interesting range of soft drinks, juices and smoothies.
Those with a gluten intolerance are catered for.
I had the kofta balls with marinated tofu, bean and brocolli salad tossed with sesame seeds and my friend had a combination plate.
Staff are bright and bubbly and extremely friendly who clearly love and take pride in what they do. The place is spotless!
Relax over breakfast or lunch then cross the road to take a leisurely walk along the sparkling Broadwater.
Hard to convey in words the freshness of the place so check out the video recommendation on their website at http://girikanacafe.com.au/
