Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you.
I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Bringing the Zing to Seddon
Cafe Advieh has added a little Zing to the Seddon Cafe scene. Advieh is a spice mixture used in Persian cuisine and Mesopotamian cuisine, in case you were wondering.
I first discovered Advieh on a trip to the Seddon Craft market (well worth a visit) one Saturday morning. With a queue outside the door for coffee, I noted it was worth a closer inspection for a meal sometime soon (when the queues were a little shorter).
The menu is inspired by the middle east (even for breakfast you can have lamb kofta). The salads look so fresh in the salad bar area. I love the different options on the menu. All the usual breakfast options at the local cafes are available but Advieh breaks the pattern with the range and options. They also have a range of (Larsen and Thomson) teas, (calmer sutra) chai, milkshakes and of course coffee. There are plenty of vegetarian options and some vegan ones.
Felafel is one of those meals that can be hit and miss, and although I love a good felafel I am careful about where I order it from as it does need to be fresh and not dry. Advieh hits the spot for a felafel fix. House made, fresh with the right combination of flavours and salads and a good size. I couldn't help but 'hmmm" in approval at the taste.
Cafe Advieh is a great destination for the West. With sharing plates available, it's perfect for catching up with friends over a drink and nibbles while enjoying the great service and ambience. Or having a lazy brunch on the weekends, lunch or breakfast. Perhaps just start with coffee, you'll be back for more.
