VeganMoFo 2018 #11: Eating Out: Frankee & Co Kittens Gone Lentil

Frankee & Co is a cute little cafe that is really not too far from me. And yet I have only been a handful of times. I have blogged about the first time, which was when my friend Molly was visiting from Seattle. But I have since been back twice.

I had an appointment one Saturday morning that was literally around the corner from it, so to not stop in for brunch would have been foolish! I was so keen on getting the pancakes... I approached the counter... and I was told that they had just sold out! Oh yes, person who ordered two serves for their table, I was watching you the entire time you ate them. I hope you liked them. Hmph. Anyway, I consoled myself with an order of the Vegan Stack instead. This was a tower of vegan fritters, spinach, mushroom, avocado, and tomato. Served with some BBQ sauce. It took ages to come out, apparently they'd accidentally made a non-vegan stack. But they gave me an extra fritter in my stack for the wait. I also ordered the Summer Dragon - a smoothie with dragon fruit, coconut water, lime, and mint), a refreshing beverage given that I had also been to yoga.

I went back another Sunday morning, and had a slight panic when I saw that the menu had changed and the pancakes were not on it. But thankfully, I saw that they had just been moved to the specials board. And they were in stock! A pile of pancakes with bananas, maple syrup, and a not-too-coconut-fatty coconut foam. Worth the wait! I also had a drink off the specials board, a peanut butter latte. This was SO GOOD! Soy milk, peanut butter, and vanilla all frothed up.

ED Cafe - Brisbane CBD Espresso & Matcha


A few of my readers and followers may have noticed recently that when I can, I've decided to make a point to get a late brunch on Fridays to get myself in the mood for a relaxing weekend, rather than carrying the stress and anxiety of work with me on my days off. To this point, I have tried several brunch spots in the main CBD area recently and nothing has really blown me away until I venture out to either the Gabba, Fortitude Valley or West End. So my quest continued, and I was lucky enough last Friday to receive an invitation from Troy and Arron, the owners of the Smug Fig, to try out their 7 month new cafe, ED cafe, hidden away in the foyer of IBM Building, up on Edward Street. Grabbing Spiderman with me, we made a trek up the hill past our usual temptations of Charboys and Taros.


Getting there at 11.30am, it we successfully beat the lunchtime rush. I loved the plants, vines and mural on the wall, almost as if to take us away from the cement jungle that we find ourselves in.

VeganMoFo 2018 #10: Eating Out: Tea Master, Alpine Gelateria, DoughLord Kittens Gone Lentil

I've been a couple of times to Tea Master in Fortitude Valley since my last visit. I remain a little mixed on my opinion on it. The menu is huge, with the vegan options clearly marked, so I suspect it is a matter of working through to find what I like! Being in The Valley, it is is also close to a couple of fun dessert places.

I went and saw the movie I, Tonya with my friend Amy in at the Valley cinemas, and afterwards we went for an early dinner to Tea Master. We shared some boiled dumplings to start. I'd had these at my first visit, and they are a good, savoury starter. \

We also each had a bubble tea. We both got Basil Seed Iced teas, Amy's was passionfruit and mine was kumquat.

Amy had the Hainan Chicken for her main, and I had the Three Cups Mushroom. I have enjoyed Three Cups dishes at many places before, so I was surprised and sad when this one came with a fair bit of chili. I have never had chili in any of them before! I picked it out and ate around it, but it was still pretty spicy.

Afterwards, I needed to cool down my stomach, so I took an evening stroll down to Alpine Gelateria in the Emporium. They have a small range of vegan flavours, and even some very fancy vegan sundae options. I just opted from a scoop of Hazelnut Gelato. Sadly, their cones are not vegan, so I had to eat it in a cup.
