VeganMoFo — and why I am lame and such at posting

So, I’m sure I’ve covered this in at least every single one of my blogs, but here it is again. I’m pretty lazy when it comes to blogging, and pretty bad at remember when I have stuff to do, plus I’m with the school degree of doom and all. So yeah, bad slacking vegan blogger.

On to food, with all my recent studies I have been going to a local Cafe Called Coburg Cafe. She’s pretty sweet, organic brews of tea and coffee, and surprisingly vegan friendly, if you in the area A) say hi to me you twits!<3 and B) come by here. Because supporting local small business guys is always best, especially when their this cool and open late for studying students like myself.

What to love?

  1. The have Soy Milk, Organic Soy Milk and can make any drink to your soy-a-rific liking.
  2. They don’t Charge Extra for Soy. Hear that you corporate giants! Small business, we pay for your soy.
  3. The have Vegan Samosas, with forking Pineapple chutney. Simply orgasmic
  4. They Offer Daily Drink Specials (Different each day, specials on holidays and random days they feel like it) Which are ultra cheap, sweet, and fun. Halloween had Jack-o-Lantern Lattes and Candy Apple ones.
  5. Soup of The Day, Often (and in my experience in the past 3 months, always) Vegan. Fresh Hot Vegan soup that is different each and every day, and oh so yummy.
  6. They also do Salads, I had pasta tonight and it was pretty Good. they also have a bean salad and then the un-vegan greek.
  7. Organic, Local, Small business that I’ve mentioned before but come-on, these are some perks.
  8. Free Wi-Fi. Who likes Wi-Fi? We like Wi-Fi.
  9. They also feature local artist works, offer free reading material including not limited to (Papers, The Coast, Animal Times, Flying Cow, The Source, Coffee News and Dr. Goose)
  10. They have a great friendly staff, who don’t mind answering all your trillion questions about ingredients and often give you heads ups on when the samosa stock is low, or the soup wasn’t as nice. ❤

This place also plays decent music all day. Local stuff too, sometimes it’s a little indie or hipster but normally they bring it home with some decent ska/punk tunes of heart filled joy. Oh. And did I mention they sometimes have vegan cookies? That’s right. Giant. Vegan.Cookies. They get their own stand and display too, and the heat them for you.

So for local, cheap, student friendly cafe-hang-outs. I suggest giving Coburg a stop by and who knows you may run into me.

A solid 9 outta 10 on this bitter vegan’s scale.


Halifax Dorm life Food Review, A Vegan’s View #3

Ok I’m skipping around a bit, but I had to review this place.

Darrel’s Burger place
Sounds like the anti vegan right? Wrong. They carry veggie burgers (without eggs/milk and they were great about answering ingredient questions) and will sub them into any of their burger offerings :3. Small friendly atmosphere, joking and friendly servers (my god, I loved our server so funny), they have a sports bar downstairs and patio seating.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention their claim to fame THE PEANUT BUTTER BURGER. That’s right they put PB onto burgers. Sounds odd, maybe a little yucky? It’s not. MY GOD. So good. It rocks socks off, seriously. The burger is on ww buns, toasted, with relish,ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, burger(veggie!!), and of course PB.

The pb added great flavour, salty sweetness with the nice greasy burger and crisp lettuce. So good. Make sure you opt out of the bacon, cheese and mayo which normally follows. The pb wasn’t too sweet, but really makes this burger.

It was great, I also got a large virgin lime margarita (very very large) and oh so sour, tart and yummy. Also my burger came with darrel fries potato wedges with some lovely spicing.

All around amazing, go try this burger wonder.
(Seriously a vegan friendly burger joint, why aren’t you here yet?)
