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.

Big sister has arrived
Meet Dolly's sister. It's a new cafe in the heart of Geelong with its own unique spin on the school hippy vegan vibe of the 70s, for today.
It's a large space, with comfortable seating, including lounges and space between tables so you can actually hear the conversation at your table. The walls are adorned with posters, community events and artwork – you may drawn to your interests and read up about other events in the area or in the vegan scene.
Dolly's Sister has arrived in the heart of Geelong
Dolly's sister came along after Dolly, the food van, established a strong following on the surf coast. The menu has been taste tested and the popular items are what you will find when you visit. It's a relaxed cafe, with friendly service.
Comfortable cafe with plenty of space for prams, children and conversation
Yes, it is a proudly vegan cafe, but it caters to many tastes. For instance, you could order a burger with fries ($17), a curry ($14), avo smash ($17) or a chia pudding($9.50). It does cater to vegans, raw foodists and people who eat a gluten free diet, as well anyone interested in real food. They also offer living, raw options include a raw zucchini linguini, and raw san choi bow style of dish. There is also alcohol on the menu.
We started with the mini sausage rolls ($3.50). We were starving when we arrived and there they were, sitting in the pie warmer asking to be eaten And they were good. Flakey pastry, meat like filling, served on a bed of rocket with tomato sauce.
Mac 'n cheese is not often found on cafe menus, but we found and ordered it from Dolly's sister. Hard to believe it was vegan, so creamy. Tasty, but not all that healthy. What'dya expect? I think it might have been the most unhealthy item on the menu.
Or perhaps, it was the fries. Hand made - cooked in coconut oil and lightly salted. Presentation and taste of these fries at Dolly's sister is nothing like anything you have ever had. Crispy and fresh, not too oily either.
