Friends of the Earth Melbourne Food Co-op and Cafe, Collingwood by Obelix

Friends of the Earth (FoE) Melbourne is a non for profit organisation working for a socially equitable and environmentally sustainable future.  What's there not to love with that?

Kiddo and I were in Fitzroy to experience the Mystery Rooms and we stopped by FoE cafe for a bite.  The co-op is situated on Smith St with plenty of tables to dine in and an eco store and book store within for you to poke around afterwards.  The food is seasonal and vegetarian / vegan.

I ordered a tofu burger for myself.  Tofu burgers do not as a rule inspire me as the ones I have had before were rather bland.  But this one was different.  It came with fermented kraut, a dill mayo and rocket leaves on a sourdough roll.  Very substantial and full of flavour.

Kiddo had a gluten free vegan pizza.  It had little nubs of tofu and thin slivers of sweet potato.  She loved it and hankered for a second slice.

Our lunch came up to $15 for the two items.

Verdict

We loved it

Overall

Tasty, fresh vegetarian food with a good cause.
