Union Kiosk Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Union Kiosk is a hole in wall found in Causeway Lane which churns out delicious and creative vegan toasties. We tried the 'Veg Bolognese, mozzarella + garlic butter' ($7) and 'Mushroom, basil, spinach + mozzarella' ($7) and they are were top notch. They have indeed perfected the essential melty cheese and golden crust.

Sweet toasties are also a thing, including one consisting of 'Melted hazelnut vego bar'– yikes, dangerous! Vegan cookies and slices are baked daily, and coffee, turmeric lattes, matcha, chai etc are available in a variety of plant milks. Cows milk is still available for now, but will be phased out soon. 

Note: Union Kiosk can be under the pump post any animal rallies held in the CBD, but cruelty-free toasties are worth the wait.

Ray's Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Ray is a super friendly cafe with a full vegan menu that will require a few visits to work your way through. One epic offering is the Black Maple Society (GFO $18), with spiced french toast, banana chocolate mousse, black tahini, maple, ginger miso ice cream sandwich, blueberries, walnut halva and carrot vinegar. Woah. There are plenty of savoury options too, with Pastadon ($16) – tagliatelle, greens, capers, almonds, miso cheese and garlic crumbs, being a fave.

Ray's is deceptively large, with plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri: 7.30am-4pm Sat-Sun: 8.30am-4pm

If you like the sound of walking the dog* in a beautiful garden with a vegan toastie or sweet treat in tow, then head to Queens Park. This all vegan hole-in-the-wall whipped me up a 'Fried Chick'n Sammich' ($15) with schnitzel, pickle, slaw and mayo; it was fresh and tasty, although the schnitzel was more akin to Fry's than the Temple of Seitan action I was secretly dreaming of.

A large array of vegan cakes are on offer, along with hot drinks and smoothies & shakes, and some casual outdoor seating.
