Generally when we go back to Horsham to visit family, there’s not a lot I can buy to have on the road, and if I can, it’s fairly uninteresting. On our most recent visit, we stopped to check out the new café everyone was talking about. I had barely believed Pat when he’d told me a few days earlier that there was a new cafe serving up vegan options. Basically, I could have a large or a small plate of anything. I opted for half zucchini carbonara with cashew and tomato “cheese” and half quinoa, sweet potato, red capsicum with lemon zesty salad. I got some kim chi on top for good measure. Pat’s Moroccan chickpea and roast carrot salad was great also!
Although the menu implies you have to add meat to get your protein, I really loved the place! All the salads available were not only vegan but all sourced from local organic farmers! Frankly, I’d be prepared to pay more than I did for such high quality food. It’s so exciting to see this local, organic, mostly plant-based food movement catching on. I was so heartened to see that even in a small country town, where veganism is a radical and strange concept, people were lining up on the door to get in and try some.
