I must admit when it comes to vegan food in the city, I stick to the places I know and never really walk around asking cafes if they have anything vegan. I kinda feel I’d be walking around hungry for a long time! So my hungry stomach was thankful today when we found Brown Sugar Cafe. The man that seated us was very helpful and told me he could make me a vegan roasted veg salad or risotto. I ended up going for the lentil soup as it was a soupy kind of day (cold, rainy, grey). I never order soup as I’m not a soup person, but lentil soup is the exception:
It was served with a big piece of Turkish bread. Very tasty and it was quite a big serving. Forgive the crappy phone camera photo. Naturally, I forgot to take a photo of the outside.
Brown Sugar Cafe is located at 25 Block Place, Melbourne.
After our lunch, we walked around a little and tried on hats. Then we made our way to ACMI where again, I didn’t take photos of anything. And you weren’t allowed to take photos inside. There were costumes on display including Audrey Hepburn’s famous black dress and her Eliza Doolittle flower lady costume; a selection of Meryl Streep’s costumes; Batman and Spiderman; Neo from The Matrix; one of the Elizabeth (Cate Blanchett version) dresses (stunning!); beautifully embroidered costumes from The Last Emperor. And so much more, I can’t list them all. Definitely worth a visit, if you like that sort of thing 🙂
After the exhibition we went for a pot of tea at Captains of Industry on Somerset Place in the city. I’ve never been there before and loved the space. Hell, I even loved the toilet seat– a hole in a piece of wood. Vintage style!
My view from my chair (which was a little too low. Or the table was too high). SEWING MACHINES!!!
I didn’t take any more photos as I only had my phone camera. Plus it was raining and it’s hard to hold an umbrella in one hand whilst trying to take photos that requires two hands!
I really love Melbourne in the rain 😀
