The Breakfast Club is a sweet little cafe on St Georges Road that catches me eye every time I pass it. After hearing that they have some vegan food on offer we thought we'd pop in for a late breakfast.
On checking out the menu, we see that eggs make a huge appearance and that we aren't flooded with vegan options - the couple of vegan options available are well labelled though which is great.
I tried the the 'Narna Date' ($9) which was toasted organic vegan banana and date bread with tofutti cream cheese. It wasn't a typical breakfast choice for me but I'm glad I had it as it was deeeelicious. Who would have thought that banana bread and cream cheese would be such a winning combination?!
My sidekick went for the 'Cuatro' toasted sandwich ($9) which had the option of an onion jam accompaniment instead of feta to make it vegan. With homemade mexican baked beans, coriander, baby spinach and onion jam on toasted Crumbs organic sourdough there wasn't much that could go wrong. The onion jam was a highlight of this toastie, but unlike the banana bread it was nothing to write home about.
There was also a chickpea salad with toast on the specials menu which could have had a vegan makeover, minus the feta ($12).
The Breakfast Club use Bonsoy and make a top notch coffee which are $3.50 and a not too steep 30c extra for soy. The majority of the seating is outside but well sheltered, with a couple of tables inside too. It's a really nice little place to visit so let's hope that more vegan options will pop up here in the future.
