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!
Mister Nice Guy Café is situated at:
291 Albert St, Brunswick (enter from the bike path side of the hotel near the railway line).
