One of the last animal products you drop when going vegan is the egg. But when you have such great alternatives in the vegan space, there is no better time to get out there and try some vegan eggs for yourself.
Here’s a few of the best vegan eggs that Melbourne has to offer:
The original vegan egg makers in Melbourne, Matcha Mylkbar with previous Head Chef Lachlan Timms (now of Project 281) engineered this creation and launched their vegan egg in March 2016. With it being still as popular to this day, you know you are on to a good thing.

Launching their own version of the vegan egg, Maccaroni Osteria Italiana, with owner and creator, Alexandro created their remarkably real concept in mid 2018. Not on a breakfast menu, this vegan egg is coupled with asparagus, mushrooms and truffle to bring it to life.

Conscious Cravings Co
Delivering a scrambled vegan egg to their patrons, Conscious Cravings Co. has a gluten free, FODMAP friendly vegan scrambled egg which will make you want a double serve. Together with their vegan bacon, this is one you need to try out.

Ubuntu Vegan Cafe
When you pop the yoke of Ubuntu Vegan Cafe’s vegan egg, it oozes all over your plate. et in amongst a huge breakfast plate of mushrooms, tempeh, vegan halloumi from Hello Friend Foods, the vegan egg is at home.

HealThy Self Co.
New to the vegan egg ranks, Healthy Self Co. have an interesting take on the vegan egg. With a tofu base to the ‘white’ and a delicious mustardy tasting yoke, this vegan egg hits the spot. This might be due to a little crush we have with mustard but it works in so well with the whole plate.

Velvety smooth and luscious, just the way scrambled eggs are, the vegan version at Il Fornaio are delicated delicious. Designed and created by Head Chef Plant Based Cam this rendition of scrambled eggs will leave a lasting impression on you. A tofu base, as most are, there is something a little different with these vegan scrambled eggs. But in this case, different is spectacular.
