Queensland Adventures 1 - Breakfast at Alibi Room, Brisbane
I took lots of photos and have lots of stories, so each of the experiences gets a separate (picspam) post!
I arrived in Brisbane on Monday, and had lunch with family on my father's side - my grandfather, my cousin Janet and my aunt Margaret (who I haven't seen in at least 30 years) - at a Lebanese place in West End, and then met my not-cousin, Rod's wife Margaret's son Leif, for coffee and many vegan chats - he and his partner Lyndal are vegan and very excited about having an all vegan feast at the shindig I was catering, and I was very excited to have other vegans attending!
We had the Kombi Driver's breakfast, a giant plate containing hash browns, vegan bacon, vegan sausages, scrambled tofu, baked beans, spinach, mushrooms, tomato and sweet potato chips. We got the smaller size for "one" and split it between the two of us, which was more than enough food. I can't imagine getting the double sized one for "lovebirds" and trying to finish it!! I got a coffee, which was okay, but I have been spoiled by the brilliant coffee and (sadly left-the-country) barista at naked espresso in Sydney...
The initial decimation of the Kombi Driver's plate:

All in all, despite the lack of "vegan toast", a pretty good start to the day.
We went to Fundies for supplies for the shindig (but where I actually just got almonds in dark chocolate arglenom), a magic shop where Susan got a plush sleeping sickness and a sparkly pink Slinkee and Sol Bakery to grab sourdough for the shindig (best.bread.ever).
Then, it was off to enjoy a marvellous lunch at My Heart Garden, which is the subject of my next post!
