Cocoa and cacao both come from the same source, which is the Theobroma cacao tree, native to South America.

Hailed as a miracle fruit, jackfruit can feed the hungry by providing nutrients such as potassium, calcium, iron, and carbohydrates even during times of climate change. This is because the jackfruit tree is drought-resistant, and has an innate ability to survive pests, diseases and hot temperatures. It grows plentifully in India, Southeast and South Asia, […]
The thought of having cow skin or any other animal skin upon my own skin is really disturbing. When people wear non-vegan leather, this is essentially what is happening. The tanning process of leather is toxic for humans as well as the environment. Thankfully, there are vegan leathers out there. Let’s go through the options […]

I went there in the distant past and found the food to be bland and not worth trying again. I've recently tried it again for a weekly dinner with my friends and things have greatly improved! The lineups can be avoided by just waiting a few minutes as they seem to happen suddenly then die off as waves of people come and go. The food is a vegan fare, if that's important to you. Priced by the weight of your plate and it seems to be funny how one week I pay $12 and the next week $9 but it seems to me like I get the same thing each time...? If not put off by being near a bunch of vegans (and some closet mear-eaters) you should like the experience.

I'm not even Vegan but this is by far my favourite place to eat in Victoria. That German potato salad mmmm. Also the ice cream is amazing, far better than any other vegan ice cream I've ever tried.
