Brunch at Mister Nice Guy Café

Mister Nice Guy Cafe

On a gloriously sunny Saturday  a couple of weekends ago, it was time to pay a visit to the not long opened Mister Nice Guy Café. Filled with comfy couches and the sounds of groovy retro tunes, the café is housed by day in the Noise Bar, at the Railway Hotel in Brunswick. Famous in the vegan community for their wonderful cupcakes, the cafe is quickly making a mark in its own right.

Eager to taste the delicious looking french toast I saw on another bruncher’s table and also the baked apple and walnut crepes I’d heard so much about on their Facebook page, we ordered both to share, along with hot chocolate for me and soy flat white for Jayson.

Interestingly, this is the first time where Jayson couldn’t order cow’s milk with his coffee, yet I could order anything off the menu – it was a wonderful bizarro world for me! Jayson was curious as to how they could make crepes and french toast sans eggs. Turns out they are made with silken tofu and the eggs were definitely not missed here; while the crepes don’t look quite like conventional crepes, they are still light, fluffy and delicious.

I was determined to try the vegan cupcakes I had heard so much about, but being full from brunch, we selected four to take home and munch on later. These were moist and delicious and every bit as good as their non-vegan counterparts. My favourite was the Cherry Bomb. So yummy!

The cupcakes are also available from Radical Grocery Store and Las Vegan Nirvana Café, plus several other cafés as listed on their website.

I was a vegetarian years ago when I was much younger, but it didn't stick the first time around. Relationships, apathy, lack of choices all influenced my slide back into eating meat. In early 2011, I heard about a book called "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer and immediately got myself a copy. Reading about the horrendous conditions factory farmed animals are forced to live under for their scarily short lives, really made me question whether I wanted to be a part of this going forward. A quarter of the way into the book my decision was made. I know my vegetarianism isn't going to change the world; my husband is a carnivore through and through and I don't expect that will change any time soon. I do however feel that most people would like to make more ethical choices concerning the food they eat, the coffee they drink, the restaurants they dine at etc. Many just don’t know where to start, which labelling to trust on food packaging, or just find it all too hard. So I'm here to share my own journey and to also learn from others who have made this lifestyle choice. Thanks for stopping by :)
