these) from Shuki and Louisa at farmers markets. So when I heard they were opening a new cafe in Brunswick I was excited. I met Faye from Veganopoulous blog there at 11.30am on the day the cafe opened. It was still fairly quiet and we were able to watch the place filling up for lunch as we ate.
When we ordered our falafel and salad plates, the names of the salads had not been chalked up on the blackboard yet. (After all the place had only opened at 11am!) They all looked so beautiful that I was happy to order something of each. Faye ordered a vegan platter which came with everything except the eggplant salad.
Half Moon Cafe. Shuki's were really really good. So light and crisp with a lovely green colour inside. I can see why their University of Melbourne market stall falafels in pitas are popular. You can also buy falafel in pita bread at the cafe.
For lots of great photos of the cafe, check out Faye's review at Veganopoulous.
Update July 2016: Went again yesterday and had another salad plate with more beautiful food (forgot to take note of salads as chatting too much)! And I can confirm that the halva and walnut brownies were really good. Loved the chunks of halva in them.
Very Good Falafel
