Eating Out: Dicki's

Brisbane is a bit spoiled for choice when it comes to vegan cafes, and I am not complaining one bit! Today's post is all about a couple of visits to the all-vegan Dicki's. You can read about my previous visits here.

I love their housemade maple lemonade. Made on still water (hurrah for not being fizzy), it is wonderfully tart and refreshing and has become my go to drink there.

My body has a low tolerance for deep fried food, it makes me feel sick quickly. But I couldn't go past the special of Gouda Cheese Sticks on one of my visits. Kind of like cheesy spring rolls. They were gooey and delicious, and served with some aioli for dipping.

They also have toastie specials every day, and I was tempted by one with tempeh, pumpkin, tomato, spinach, pesto, and aioli. It was a wonderful combination.

They also boast a cabinet full of vegan sweet treats, and I took home an Apple Crumble Muffin. This was amazing - the crumble is great, there is a hefty dose of apple, and it is huge! I ended up having it for breakfast the next morning with an apricot.

At my most recent visit, I again had some maple lemonade. I can't say no to it! And I also ordered their Big Breakfast for lunch, so I guess technically brunch. Is it still brunch if it is after 1pm? Anyway, this was a beautiful plate full of tofu scramble, sauteed mushrooms, crispy tempeh, hash brown, beetroot hummus, asparagus, roasted cherry tomatoes, and sourdough. The menu also said crumbed eggplant, but I guess they were out? I only realised just now that it didn't have that. I also ordered a side of their cashew dill cream, which is SO GOOD GUYS! I want a tub! Anyway, this was a great big breakfast. It was filling, but still light enough to not weigh me down and make me need a nap on my way to work.

I also picked up another apple crumble muffin, and a slice of lemon and yoghurt cake. No photo of the cake, because it got smooshed a bit in the container on the drive to work. But trust me when I say that it was delicious.

  1. The lemonade sounds amazing, I am a sucker for lemonade!!
    I have a low tolerance for deep fried food too. But I would risk it for gouda cheese sticks too!
    I'm sorry but sweet, sweet Jed outshines all the food! I hope you feel better soon sweet boy!!

  2. Wow, this cafe looks incredible! Maple lemonade sounds so delicious and refreshing, I would probably order it every time too. The cheese sticks look incredible and OMG THAT MUFFIN!!! I need that in my life, yum!!!!

    Jed!!! That poor baby, I'm sorry he's not feeling well but omg that picture of the sleepy baby is too adorable. Feel better sweet Jed!

    1. He takes a gorgeous picture!
      This is really a good cafe. I don't go there nearly as often as I should. We just have so many places here to choose from!

  3. I think most places switch from their brunch menus at 2 so 1pm is still brunch lol

    1. For me brunch is like 9am but that is because I am a weird early bird. ;)
      They are only open until 3, so they have the same menu all day. You can have a big breakfast at two, or a burger at 7!

  4. The maple lemonade sounds fantastic and the apple crumble muffin looks absolutely amazing!
    Aww, poor Jed, I hope you feel better soon!

    1. Everything is better with a crumble.
      And thanks from Jed. :)
