For those that don’t already know me, I am a total foodie, I am passionate about good, wholesome, vegan food. What a perfect way to explore this love than to review some of my favourite eating places.
On a recent trip to my old home town Geelong, Victoria, Australia, I headed straight to the best cafe in town ‘the Sprout and the Bean’ owner Chef Shaun Petty never disappoints my taste buds.
Shaun offers an extensive menu, specialising in vegan, gluten friendly whole foods also catering for kids and has a great take out service, plus indoor and outdoor dining.
the Sprout and the Bean has a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, there is no need to make a booking, when the urge takes you to have the best food ever simply drop in & enjoy.
Shaun and his friendly, helpful staff bake all the cakes & muffins in the cafe, so when you walk in the aroma is intoxicating, add that to the heady fragrance of the Jasper Coffee they specialise in, and you are in food heaven.
They have a daily special that can vary from the soup of the day, curries and samosas. the regular menu is about to be update (I will keep you posted with this)
If freshly squeezed juices is what you are after, they have the best, I had the purple carrot, apple & beetroot when I was there, packed full of anti oxidants and goodness !!
This cafe not only indulges my passion for food, but the presentation demands to be photographed.
