Vegetarian delight, Veggie Mama, was the venue of our latest girls night out. Since one of our trio is vegetarian we are always looking for places to eat with many vegetarian options and it was decided we’d try this place our vegetarian friend raves about. To be honest I was a little dubious about what we’d be eating exactly but was pleasantly surprised with the results. Located in popular Beaufort St, Mt Lawley, this very casual, laid back cafe has quoted artwork on its walls for sale and friendly staff more than happy to explain their food.
Meals are ordered and paid for at the main counter which is filled with many delicious goods from fresh salads, pastas, burger patties, quiche and filo pastry morsels. Everything is identified as being dairy free, egg free and/or gluten-free as well as completely meat free. I decided to try the Roast Vegetable Filo Pastry with a side serve of Mushroom Gnocchi $16.95. The filo was light and the roast vegetables inside were soft. The gnocchi was light and covered in a rich tomato sauce with mushrooms. It was a really tasty meal with the added benefit of being rather healthy too.
Our vegetarian friend ordered the Mushroom and Polenta Burger with Salad $17. The mushroom and polenta patty in the toasted bun, was given the two thumbs up by my friend. She said that the generous serve of salad tasted as fresh and delicious as it looked.
If you have room for afters there was a small selection of muffins, cakes and biscuits on display along with organic teas coffees and juices and smoothies. Veggie Mama is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, and for dinner Wednesday to Friday only. They accept bookings and are child friendly. Pop in for a healthy meal today!!
