This quaint café is a plant based and vegan restaurant, but if you aren't a vegan don't let that stop you from checking this place out. I myself am not a vegan and nor were the people I went to this café with but we all loved it.
As for us, the lovers of a cow's milk full cream latte, we were a bit sceptical about what the staff recommend - Almond Milk Latte - would taste like, but I must say that a latte made with almond milk is far creamier and smoother than that of a traditional latte (but shhh, don't tell the cows. Also, instead of adding white sugar to your coffee at the Namaste Nourishment Bar, try their plant based option of coconut sugar, it will only add to your amazing almond milk coffee experience. As well as almond milk, you can also choose from coconut milk or soy milk for your coffee, hot chocolate or macchiato.
Namaste Nourishment owners Scott & Markeeta are also your chefs and boy, do they know how to whip up some amazing vegan desserts. From tarts to slices and cheesecakes there is sure to be something to take everyone's fancy. For me the chocolate tart was looking too good to pass up. With a smooth creamy texture this rich tart was nothing like I had tasted before, definitely one for the chocolate lovers out there.

I love the décor in this café. It has a homey feeling as soon as you walk through the door, which is matched with the warm welcoming and friendly smiles of the café staff. I also really liked seeing the crystals that are all around the café, it really adds a holistic vibe to the breakfast and dessert bar.
If you want to look after your body and give it all the nutrients it needs then this is the place for you. Start your day off with an immune boosting shot, a wholesome smoothie or a cleansing juice, and of course if you can't start the day without out a coffee they have you covered. Don't forget to fill your stomach with the good stuff for the most important meal of the day. Try their raw banana pancakes, a mushroom burger or the blissed-out bruschetta, and that's just to name a few.
So what are you waiting for? All of you vegans out there go and check out your new local café in Victoria Street, and for those of you who aren't vegans make sure you stop in and visit the Namaste Nourishment Breakfast & Dessert Bar. Give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed and that you will be back for more.
