Girls and Boys is the latest venture from the owners of The Vegie Bar and Transformer. Located right next to The Vegie Bar, Fitzroy has scored yet another all-vegan affair.
The pictures I’d seen online certainly looked good enough and there were some great reviews about the soft serve ice cream, so on a hot day I dropped in and ordered the Baklava Pimped Out soft serve ($12).
It was way bigger than I’d anticipated and I wasn’t able to finish it so next time I’d share. But this was really good soft serve icecream– I’ve never had a vegan soft serve and I’m fussy about ice cream in general. The filo sheets were nice and crunchy and there was a sweet lemony sauce with pistachios and walnuts. Close up!
There’s also a selection of beautiful looking/sounding small cakes (with unrefined sugars), smoothies, housemade gelato, lattes, coffees and juices. There are gluten free options though I’m not exactly sure which are GF:
You can also grab some Vegie Bar take away from the next counter and fridge.
There’s a flavour-of-the-day special for the Pimped Out soft serve, and on the day I went it was a mango-something.
Having a 100% plant based dessert bar is a great addition to Melbourne and although Fitzroy is a bit of a public transport hike for me, I’d make the effort to go and try some of the cakes and another soft serve.
