breakfast

Slowly slowly, cafes and restaurants on the Central Coast and Newcastle and venturing beyond having a single vegetarian item on the menu, and giving options for those who don’t want meat in every meal. Admittedly, most are still full of cheese and/or mushrooms (which is okay until your vegetarian date doesn’t like mushroom, or your friend is vegan) but they are getting there.

Here are a few (cheesy – so glad I’m back on the dairy, though my waistline might not be) vego options I’ve had over the past couple of weeks.

The Spot, Beaumont Street HamiltonThe Spot, Beaumont Street Hamilton

From The Spot on Beaumont Street, Hamilton: Corn and Feta Fritters with Mushroom, spinach and tomato relish. Oh so yum!

Vege Nachos

From Cafe Pennoz in the Tuggerah Business Park: Vege Nachos. I had time to kill at work one day so I treated myself.

vegetarian pizza , hungry wolf, Terrigal

From Hungry Wolf’s Pizza, Terrigal: Dom’s Special (Cheese, tomato, mushrooms, onion, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, olives, garlic and chilli (optional) – minus the mushrooms and chili. It’s always a nice little delight to get artichoke on something. Way back when I worked in Tuggeranong (not to be confused with Tuggerah), there was a cafe downstairs at Homeworld that sold an amazing vegetarian foccacia with roast Mediterranean veges which I loved… and made me realise that I did like artichoke (from a jar anyway!).

Newcastle

Newcastle springs. Been a little while since I’ve lived through one, but I remember now, too hot in the sun for a jumper, but the second the clouds come in with that strong wind, the jumper is back on again in an instant. Always carry one, something light, black, and tied around your handbag.

(which is my advice for a Canberra summer evening, btw)

Estabar

Sunday morning brunch at Estabar, out in the sunshine. A coffee to perk me up.

Estabar

Avocado, lemon and feta from the special’s board, with gluten free toast. Notice how they’ve figured out us food bloggers and instagrammers???

Estabar

Breakfast beans and feta with sourdough for Rish.

Estabar

Pear and walnut bread.

Some nice light brekkies to start our Sunday :)

Breakfast @Merewether Surfhouse

A little different to the -4 overnight they’d come from!

We took them out for breakfast at Merewether Surfhouse Cafe, making it there 10 mins before the 11:30am cutoff for ordering breakfast.

Breakfast @Merewether Surfhouse

(they were out of polenta, which is understandable given the late order, but I was very happy with what I got in its place!)

Breakfast @Merewether Surfhouse

Vittoria Coffee is such a Newcastle thing… This was perfect. They initially mixed up Angel’s coffee order, but were happy and helpful in sorting it out :)

Rish and I went for a couple of Vegetarian options:

Morning walk, part of my ritual.

Part of my sanity.

Now adjusted to include an apple or other piece of fruit, to keep my stomach from eating itself before I can properly hit up breakfast.
