Forest Cafe

124 Boundary St, West End, Qld

There’s a counter-cultural buzz and a youngish crowd at this informal  restaurant, where the menu is entirely vegan. They do a range of hot dishes that come with rice, of which we thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Thai yellow’ of carrots and other vegetables in a gentle sauce based on coconut milk and the potato and pea masala; not quite so pleasing was a slightly dull dahl, which we felt could have benefited from a few more shakes of the spice jar. There is also a range of salads, including a most attractive one of red cabbage, superior packaged and freshly squeezed juices, and cakes. Its inner suburban location makes the Forest handy to other places you might like to visit. A few steps towards the traffic lights is the Green Grocer; the Greek grocer, on the other hand, is a short stroll by the road running to the right at the lights.
