McGain's Nursery, Cafe and Food Store

McGain's Nursery, Cafe and Food Store: Two Organic Salads ($15)

McGain's Nursery, Cafe and Food Store is a green and welcoming oasis hidden in the industrial centre of coastal Anglesea. Whether you're visiting Anglesea or just passing through, you must stop by McGains to stock up on vegan goodies from the store or to enjoy what could be the only decent soy latte (w/ Bonsoy) for miles.

The cafe is set in a light filled gazebo bursting with greenery, flowers and twisted tomato vines and is truly a relaxing place to sit and enjoy. While the cafe doesn't offer a huge vegan range, we were thoroughly satisfied with a delightful organic quinoa salad w/ fresh orange segments and pistachios, aside a cos salad w/ fresh dates, dried apricots and almonds ($15) - it really was something rather special. Another vegan option on offer for lunch was a falafel wrap ($12).

We sampled a couple of refreshing Wort organic drinks as we'd never seen them before and the unusual flavour of 'peppermint and ginger' caught my eye. A vegan muesli slice ($4.50) made in-house and full of nuts and seeds also hit the spot.

Great efforts have gone into stocking the best of everything at McGain's food store, including the freshest of fruit and vegetables. Tallyho Farm soy burgers, Earnest Bean Co organic smoked tofu and Primasoy three seeds tempeh (the one smothered in paprika and cumin) were available - which was impressive as these delicacies can be hard to find (in Melbourne, you can get these products at The Land of Soy & Honey).

If sweets are your thing, you can pick up anything from the Loving Earth or Cocoa Rhapsody chocolate ranges or settle instead for a SuperOrb, date and walnut ball, organic dried mango, or my favourite - organic dark chocolate almonds!
