Lost Boys has a super cute interior, with a fake tree and fairy lights and bookshelves. The menus are pasted into the front of old books. I almost felt that I was not cool enough to be in such a place!
The breakfast menu was over by the time we got there, but they had their lunch and snacks menu available (they also serve their avocado toast all day... though it has haloumi and I am not sure if they sub anything for the vegan option or if they just take it off). They no longer seem to have their menu online, so I will have to remember things as best I can!
We all started with some drinks. Brendan and Di both got their pretty Ice Teas, Nicole had the Iced Coconut Mocha, and I had a chai latte (acceptable, not brilliant).
The menu is pretty small, and unfortunately they were no longer offering the root vegetable pizza I had my eye on. Nicole and I were the only vegans (the other two ordered vegetarian, so no photos of their food), and we both ended up ordering the veggie burger with no cheese. Unfortunately mine came out with cheese on it, and then there was a very long wait until they brought me a new one. The burger was very filling! The 'patty' was more like a semi-solid hummus that smooshed everywhere when you cut into it (it wasn't a pick up in your hands kind of burger), but it was tasty. It also had avocado, mushrooms and carmelised onions on it. Served with some corn chips drizzled in balsamic. We were all very full!
Unfortunately their dessert case was pretty sad for vegans, unless you wanted to eat a raw bliss ball (I did not). But thankfully there was a Doughnut Time near by that was attached to a little bar/coffee shop for us to sit in to chat for a few more hours. Finding a coffee shop open on a Sunday afternoon was surprisingly difficult!
I had a lovely time catching up with Nicole, who is now back in Toronto, and also with Brendan and Diana (who live north of Brisbane).
