Real home grown and delicious, check this out
Minestra is a newish cafe on Churchill Road, Prospect and is a lovely edition to the area.

Ricotta Balls

"Local, homegrown food cooked Calabresi style - for vegans, vegos and omnivores" is their philosophy. Their ingredients are sourced from their 'neighbours', locally grown in their backyards, which means the menu is constantly changing depending on what ingredients they have available. (If you are interested in growing for them, or have an oversupply of veggies, herbs, etc, get in touch with Minestra). They often post the menu on their Facebook page; even if today's menu isn't up, you'll get an idea of the delightful items they offer.

However the Polpette is a constant on the menu. Polpette is Italian "rissoles" which they do vego, vegan or meat and serve with salad or minestra (an Italian soup). I had the Polpette with salad on my most recent visit and it was delicious; a decent serve, and fresh and tasty.

Vegan Lasagne


I combined this with an apricot milkshake which was divine; tasted of real apricots and made with organic milk (they can do a vegan version). They also have peanut butter, Nutella and vanilla shakes on the menu.

They also do really good coffee and their desserts are heavenly!
The service matches the food - brilliant. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, they are happy to do what they can to assist with any allergies or intolerances.

Minestra is great place to get a feed or just chill with a coffee or shake and a little treat. Head in next time you are in the area.
