Eating Out: The Green Edge

Hello friends. It is some ancious making times at the moment. I hope everyone is staying safe and taking whatever precautions you need to for your own health, both physical and mental. So.... probably I won't be eating out much in the near future. But because I am far behind on blogging, I still have weeks of eating out content to share with you.

Some more delicious meals at Brisbane's most awesome vegan grocery shop and cafe, The Green Edge.

A while ago The Green Edge revamped their breakfast menu, including some housemade poached eggs. I don't miss eggs, I don't like really eggy things, and yet I keep trying vegan eggs at cafes. I started off with the Eggs Benni, and I am happy to say that the eggs are great! They are fun and have an oozy yolk in the middle, but do not have that super eggy taste or texture that I don't miss. So if you are after a super realistic egg experience, no. But for me, yay! As well as the eggs, it had avocado and ham on English muffins, covered in a lovely Hollandaise sauce. And I got a hash brown on the side, of course. And a turmeric latte. A wonderful breakfast!

On my next visit, I was keen to try out their Croque Madame special. Ham and cheese sourdough smothered in a delicious cheesy sauce and served with an egg. This was savoury and decadent. I finished it off with a lovely iced chocolate with soy whip, and got a delicious housemade cinnamon bun to take away.

If you can't stay to eat, but still need to grab something for later, they also have some salads and wraps in their cabinet. My favourite is the Chicken Caesar Salad, which has salty chicken, bacon, croutons, parmesan, and an amazing Caesar dressing.

Back to eating in again, one day it was raining but hot and steamy. I don't like this, I want it to be cool when it rains. Thankfully, The Green Edge has great air conditioning, so I could sit inside watching the rain outside and pretend it was a chilly day. And what better on a chilly, rainy day then a hot chocolate with marshmallows and some mac and cheese? With the most amazing Jam Doughnut Blondie for afterwards.

  1. That last meal is the BEST! And yes, they are terrible times, but we can still reach out. Maybe while you're not eating out but still eating, you'll still have things to show us. I know I'm going to try to keep sharing and connecting. It's a hard time out here, and crossy paws and awesome food make a difference.

    1. I think I have enough content with the backlog of photos for recipe round-ups to last me for years... literally! Ha. But food must go on, so there will always be more the share.

  2. Ahhh, I do enjoy that photo of DimSum in these shitty times. Man, this just started here, and I already miss eating out!!!! Takeout just isn't the same. That eggy benny looks AMAZING. I love the idea of a runny vegan egg. And the mac and cheese and cinnamon roll. I want it all! And our normal lives back!

  3. All your meals from The Green Edge look amazing, and such a pretty design on the hot chocolate, too!
    Sweet Dim Sim, thank you for sharing your crossy paws with us!
