Cafe Essen is somewhat of a Canberra institution located between Garema Place and Bunda Street in Civic. With a vast loose leaf tea selection, different coffee roasts to choose from and a pretty good hot chocolate it’s a great spot to catch up with others.
There are a range of clearly marked vegan options on the menu as well as the specials board. Meals include a vegan mexi-burger (kidney bean and corn chip patty with guacamole, jalapeno and vegan aoli in a bun) and a vegan breakfast bagel (baked beans, scrambled tofu, spinach, roasted capsicum and pepitas over a toasted bagel). There are also a number of items that can be made vegan or may be vegan, such as the bruschetta, curry, various salads and the soup of the day.
For a sweet treat Cafe Essen currently stock vegan cupcakes from Crafted and also have dairy-free smoothies that are vegan.

Home of the freakshake, Pâtissez has two cafes, with the newer outlet in Civic having a few vegan options. The Civic menu changes seasonally, with the current vegan burger a grilled field mushroom, crispy spiced chickpea, corn & cumin patty, smashed avocado, fresh rocket, tomato, Spanish onion, housemade hummus & vegan basil aioli. Served with fries. It’s a delicious, but packed, burger. The staff are happy to discuss menu modifications and sometimes specials, such as the roasted mushrooms can be vegan.
However, the main reason to go here is to try a freakshake. The first Vegan Freak was a concoction of coconut gelato blitzed with lychees & a dash of almond milk in a jar drizzled in raspberry coulis then topped with vanilla bean coconut mousse & finished with a coconut, lychee & raspberry semifredo popslide. The popslide in particular was delicious. The current Vegan Freak is a chai spiced almond milk & soy ice cream shake with drapes & drapes of gooey Medjool date caramel topped with cacao coconut mousse & a crunchy nougatine cone. So good.

Frugii Dessert Laboratory is often touted as having some of the best icecream and most creative desserts in Canberra.
Thankfully vegans don’t have to miss out! The sorbets on offer are usually vegan and there is always at least two on offer. The flavours change every couple of days and range from single fruit flavours (such as peach, mango, lime, berry) to the more interesting such as strawberry & balsamic vinegar, watermelon mint and apple cinnamon and to the more alcoholic gin and tonic, cider, champagne and shiraz. The range seems to be endless.
In addition to the sorbets there are also a couple of vegan desserts. Frugii desserts are amazing to look at and also to taste. The first vegan offering coffee caramel creamaux, banana cheesecake, and a chocolate coconut mousse finished with cacao nibs. It is an amazing balance of flavours and textures and when first launched a weekend’s worth of desserts sold out in a night. Their second vegan dessert is a cherry ripe offering with layers of chocolate and cherry with a pipette of cherry sauce!
