Earth to Table - Bondi Junction, Sydney

After seeing all the delicious looking vegan cakes on Earth to Table's instagram, I finally made my way there one weekend afternoon for some lunch.

Earth to table is a raw, organic and vegan cafe with lots of goodies made in-house. It's a short, 5 minute walk from Bondi Junction station; the building itself has a bright green mural that is hard to miss. Inside the cafe, it's a tad cramped, but there's some seating out the back in the small courtyard.

Shepherd's Pie

A mix of ten different vegetables in this vegan shepherd's pie, served with cauliflower mash as the topping, zucchini gravy, and adorned with sweet potato crisps. Surprisingly, it tasted quite similar to the real deal, down to the mince. However, the dish could have used a bit more texture; besides the sweet potato crisps, it was all a bit sloppy. 

Rainbow seaweed salad

The rainbow seaweed salad is a colourful mix of kelp noodles, beetroot, carrot, broccoli and red cabbage in a ginger miso dressing. The kelp noodles add an interesting crunch and texture to this dish.

Pink Dragon smoothie

The bright pink dragon smoothie is an awesome thirst quencher. The smoothie is made with pink pitaya (dragonfruit), mango, berries, baobab and coconut water; rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. 

Lemon and blueberry cheezcake

The array of desserts is so tempting that it's hard to choose - I end up settling on a slice of this delicious looking lemon and blueberry 'cheezcake', a vegan cheesecake made with cashews, lemon and a blueberry swirl. 

Whilst the food is decent for vegan/raw/organic, I did find the prices a bit steep and the ambiance was a bit lacking (say compared to Sadhana Kitchen in Enmore). Having said that, I would definitely still drop in for a delicious smoothie or cake.
