VeganMoFo 2017 #28: Eating Out: Brunch at Chapter IV



28th: Brunch: the under appreciated get-together meal.

Is brunch really under appreciated? I get pretty excited by the thought of brunch, though often my idea of a 'brunch' time is more like a breakfast time... I generally get up early!

Earlier this year, one of our most beloved vets left us to move to Perth, so we had a little clinic brunch to say goodbye. Chapter IV in Paddington was chosen, as it had a good range of food to suit all fancies.

I couldn't resist ordering the Mighty Green Smoothie, which had spinach, kale, banana, coconut water, lychees and mint. It was so refreshing! This was back at the start of the year, so it was a hot and sweaty day. You will also notice a little Lotus Biscoff cookie - they gave them out when people ordered a coffee. But not everyone wanted theirs, so I was happy to snaffle them up.

I ordered their vegan stack. Unfortunately I didn't write down what was in this, and they seem to have changed their menu (the current stack is no longer vegan). But I am pretty sure it was a stack of rosti with avocado, a green salad and some sweet potato crisps. I also got a side of mushrooms. It was a nice brunch.

This was quite a lovely cafe. We were able to reserve a table inside because it was such a stinker of a day, but they also have a verandah out the back that you can sit on with some beautiful views if that is your fancy. They have a couple of nice sounding vegan things on their current menu, also a few that sound like they should be vegan or able to be made vegan... definitely double check on that! But a very pleasant brunch experience if you are looking for a place that caters to everyone.

Just a couple of silly cinnamons. In related news, I am terrible at taking selfies.

  1. That smoothie sounds delicious. I've never had mint in a smoothie but I bet it's amazing on a hot day!
    I love that picture of you and Sahara! I remember seeing it on Instagram!

    1. I am a big fan of mint in smoothies, especially over summer. It makes them so refreshing.

      I am so bad at taking photos of me, but I love this one!

  2. The stack looks great; that's a shame they don't make it vegan anymore, though! Cute selfie with Sahara! :D

    1. Everything vegan should stay vegan and then they should make everything else vegan as well. ;)

  3. Great sendoff! I love brunch! But only if I also get to have breakfast earlier and lunch later. :|

    Aw, I remember that picture of you two. It's a lovely selfie! :)

    1. Oh yes, I always have to have pre-brunch breakfast. Otherwise I won't have the strength to make it to brunch.
