New café: Major Sprout

Last November, the owners of Dear Jervois opened a second café in the central city. Major Sprout is in Graham Street, just up the hill from Victoria Park.

Like Dear Jervois’, the menu at Major Sprout has a few vegan or veganisable options. Its coffee is excellent, its smoothie selection is entirely vegan, and its cabinet includes Raw Kitchen cakes by the slice.

My breakfast this morning was cacao granola, an indulgent pudding-like plate of crunchy gluten-free granola served with chocolate coconut yoghurt, nuts, dates and three different berries.

I also had a Peanut Buttercup smoothie, which was a nutty, caramelly mix of banana, Fix and Fogg peanut butter, cacao powder, medjool dates & almond milk.
