Now And Not Yet, Warrandyte by Bureaucrat

Now And Not Yet is a rather special cafe.  Ensconced in the main shopping strip in leafy Warrandyte, Now And Not Yet is a social enterprise that puts its profits towards local community causes and helping asylum seekers by providing employment opportunities for them.  During a weekend of self improvement, Now and Not Yet seemed to be a rather fitting choice for lunch.

Now And Not Yet, Warrandyte, super salad
Similar to the Rumour Mill in Croydon, the menu here accommodates many dietary needs (vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free).  There were nine of us for lunch and we made sure to have a booking.  Some of the dishes that we ordered included the Super Salad.  A colourful and hearty salad comprised of kale, chickpeas, beetroot, tomatoes, sweet potato, quinoa and topped with maple roasted walnuts and mustard apple cider vinegar.  

Now And Not Yet, Warrandyte, NaNY toastie
Some of us, including myself, got the NaNY toastie.  This was a lovely toastie with ham off the bone, vintage cheddar, sweet mustard pickle relish, caramelised onion on sourdough.  Just simple, great ingredients.  Yum!

Now And Not Yet, Warrandyte, pork belly
There are a few specials on offer.  One of them included the crispy pork belly with sauerkraut.  This went down a treat for those who chose it!  There was also a very popular special - the French toast with maple syrup bacon and strawberries (sorry, no pic!) - which looked to be a very decadent version of eggy toast!

Now And Not Yet, Warrandyte, chai tea
For drinks, I got a soy chai latte.  I liked how it also came with a shaker jar of cinnamon.  Others got fresh juices and lattes.

I love this cafe!  Great vibes and yummy food; and it feels good knowing that you're helping the wider community.  Service is friendly and inside it's quite spacious, making it very popular with families with young kiddies.
