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.
