Vegan Republic is a brand-new café, currently only available through Uber Eats. They have been open for just over one month now and are delivering within a five-kilometre radius of their kitchen, which is based in their Bagelicious café in Hawthorn.
Yonathan and Iky decided to venture out with Vegan Republic when they realised there was a growing demand for vegan food in the local area. Many students were coming into their Bagelicious café and asking for vegan options. They began by adding a vegan falafel option to their menu but found there to be demand for many more vegan meals.
The most popular item on Vegan Republic’s menu is the quinoa and sweet potato patty. It comes served on a sandwich with creamy mayo, pesto and pickled onion. Another popular choice is the potato rosti which also comes in a sandwich with lettuce, mayo and beetroot. The flavourful vegan omelette is served with tomato relish.
A soup of the day is also on the menu! It alternates between a hearty pumpkin soup or a rich lentil soup.
The drinks menu consists of many smoothies and frappes such as the acai smoothie, the bagelicious frappe, and the iced espresso.
