If you’re a Vegan, a Vegetarian, or somewhere in between, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Sassafras Canteen already. If you haven’t, don't stop reading!
Burrowed along Paddington’s bustling Latrobe Terrace is where you’ll find this quaint garden café, where the fresh and lush dining setting emulates what these guys are all about. If you’ve got a furry, four-legged friend that will keep you company in your friend’s absence, that’s okay – this place is very much dog-friendly. You’ll find plenty in the back garden courtyard!
Sassafras pride themselves on producing fresh, wholesome dishes – and lots of them! From the goodies in the front window to their extensive drinks list, their focus is welcoming Vegans and Vegos alike with open arms.
Now no café is perfect, and this probably isn’t the place you want to come for a coffee, however they do create some delicious and healthy smoothies! Their mango smoothie in particular is a highlight, along with their orange, pineapple & lime fruit frappe!
If you’re heading in for a late breakfast or early lunch, their menu is perfect for you. They offer a range of breakfast and brunch options available daily until 2pm, although I’d suggest head in a little later as it, like most cafes, is pumping around 9 – 11. The pick of the bunch would be the Chilli Corn Fritters if you fancy starting the day with a bit of spice, while the Buddah Bowl is a great option for those looking for something on the healthier side. The flavours within the lentils and the complimenting beetroot & red bean falafel were amazing, as was the pumpkin hummus to mix it all with.
Another thing to love about Sassafras is the service. Despite the roaring weekend trade, the staff are always helpful and generally quick too!
Great option for the health-conscious with an array of items catered for Vegans and Vegetarians
