I had amazing coffee and vegan meals at a beautiful cafe called The Pantry when we spent 10 days over the Christmas holidays in the Central Coast.
It is so good to find “ interesting “ vegan food choice ( quite often I find vegan food choices in cafes to be boring )
Another amazing thing is the pantry offers all day brunch menu – so even at 10am, I can order interesting vegan dishes such as vegan tacos rather than just ordering smashed avocado toast!
On Day 1, I ordered a veggie patch stack. It was a crispy potato rosti with sautéed mushrooms and wilted spinach. Topped with a roasted tomato and a generous helping of salsa rosa.
Rosti wasn’t like the rosti I ate in Swissland… it was rather deep fried potato but still good to have gluten free vegan breakkie.
Veggie Patch Stack – $18.50, vegan & gluten free!
On Day 2, I had their pantry soft tacos which consisted of three soft tacos with crispy fried prawns OR our vegan fried, soy-soaked silken tofu. Filled with avocado smash, tomato and cucumber salsa, finished with fresh coriander mint and lime. Of course I chose the tofu tacos which were well seasoned and flavourful.
The Pantry Soft Tacos – $21.00 | VE option – yummy flavourful tacos with cold pressed juice
I don’t often mention drinks but seriously the coffee here is just AMAZING!!!
I haven’t had such good coffee for a while .. I think my hubby had at least 5 coffees here, I had two coffees – all the coffee were just amazing!
This cafe is in the accomodation but everybody access this cafe – I must admit we didn’t have amazing experience in the accomodation – was very pricey – spent over $400 per night ( yep it is a season peak time ) but I highly recommend visiting this cafe if you are a serious coffee lover and try their vegan meals when you are around the Central coast area!
