I’ve been to Sister Of Soul a few times now and I’ve previously blogged about a lunch visit. This time, I was in the area around brunch time so my son and I decided to go in to check out the morning menu. The vegetarian/vegan menu for the morning hours looked just as good as the lunch/dinner menu.
After a little stress trying to navigate Acland Street by foot with the current roadworks going on, we nabbed a window seat (that’s my doing, light for photos and all). I’m on a bit of a mission now to try all the different flavoured lattes around town (you know… beetroot, blue algae, etc) and so I ordered the Spiced Carrot Latte with almond milk (around $6.50 from memory). I couldn’t take a photo of the carrotyness, but I did pick up a carroty flavour and will try to replicate this at home cos it was pretty good.
Arthur will get pancakes anywhere anytime so he got the Buckwheat and Banana Pancake ($16.50) which was topped with strawberries, banana, poached pear, nut crumble and a chocolate sauce. He pretty much scraped off the nut crumble and pear (they’re not his thing) so of course I ate those for him. It was nice, not very sweet (which is my preference) but a little pricey for a single pancake in my humble opin’ despite being slightly larger than the average size pancakes most places serve.
The Big Vegan ($17.50) stood out for me: smashed avocado, marinated tofu topped with a tomato, corn and coriander salsa, wilted spinach, rosemary potato rosti, plum dipping sauce and multigrain toast. There was a decent amount of avocado for both pieces of toast and overall I enjoyed everything on the plate.
Service was fast and friendly as with previous visits. There are a few more nice looking meals on the menu I’d like to try. St. Kilda isn’t an area I visit often but when I do, it involves a bit of public transport adventuring. So it’s pretty nice to be confident that if I end up at Sister of Soul, I can unwind a bit and enjoy a good meal (and people watch by the window).
