Penta, Elsternwick is a cafe that brings the most artistic cafe food to life right in front of your eyes. The best part, you get to eat it. As you walk up to Penta it seems like your regular Melbourne Cafe, as you walk through the door though it all changes. Gone are the classic Melbourne cafe stylings of marble and wood and in comes the polished concrete, dark tones and exposed industrial piping on the roof.
Penta is from the team that brought you Legacy Camberwell, Mob Espresso and Temperance Society. There are plenty of vegan options on the menu they have really stepped it up and offered a lot of the dishes with a clear VO (Vegan Option). In terms of numbers, you should expect to have at least 5 clear vegan options that aren’t just smoothies.
It’s all well and good to have vegan options but if they all taste like rubbish then it really doesn’t matter does it? Thank goodness the options at Penta are all amazing. A well thought out menu with incredible taste and texture. The vegan options are all very different dishes so you have that choice.
