Afternoon stop-in at Vegie Bar

After a day of wandering around Fitzroy recently, we popped into Vegie Bar for a quick pick-me-up.

I was immediately attracted to a chocolatey dessert in the cabinet. You know, I’m pretty sure this is the FIRST dessert that I’ve had at Vegie Bar? I might have shared a slice of cake years ago, but more than often I come out of the other side of lunch/dinner to even THINK about sweets.

(Excuse the speckles, it just started to rain)

I didn’t actually read what this was – I saw the V on the card, saw the chocolate/slice/cake and got it. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. Not for lack of flavour, but more because I thought it was a giant Twix and was expecting a biscuity crunchy layer in there.

That aside, this was really delicious. It was a raw dessert, with a rich chocolate fudgy centre. Definitely a great little treat to put a spring back in your step after an afternoon lull.

And what better to accompany it than an ice coffee?

I actually cannot not order an ice coffee if I see a vegan one on a menu. I just have to have it.

This was definitely one of the better ones I’ve had. It was made with real coffee, and as a result was not sickening sweet like some that I’ve tried. The only sweetness came from the ice cream, which is the way I believe it should be. Yay ice coffee!

Definitely enjoying visiting this old favourite now that I’m back in Melbourne. Check out the last time I visited here.

  1. The cake looks really elegant! I saw many similar cake slices in Austria. I wouldn’t mind a raw dessert, but I agree, a Twix would have been way better!

  2. that chocolate looks so delicious I would have bought one too – looks like a giant chocolate bar to me too. I remember stopping at the vegie bar on the way home one night many years ago to pick up a huge slab of chocolate cake – can’t remember why but I remember it was so so good – and I have been there with friends just to have the chocolate cake – hmmm I must like the desserts there (or at least the chocolate cake) though I haven’t been there for far too long

    1. YES – the chocolate cake there is infamous, isn’t it?! This is why I can’t remember if I’ve eaten it or not – I’ve heard sooo much about it that I’m not sure if I’m imagining having eaten it or not. It’s definitely a good move going there just for desserts – I’ll have to remember it more in the future because they always have some lovely treats in the cabinet!

  3. Wowza, that’s a luscious looking chocolately dessert and sorry to hear that it didn’t turn out what you thought it would be. Anyway the dessert looks really good I love a fudgy centre, too!
