Green Cuisine Reopening


Walking through Market Square, I saw that Green Cuisine's sign
 has changed from this to "We're OPEN! Welcome Back 10am-8pm" 


They've been closed for quite sometime now ever since the 
fire. I've been missing their delicious vegan cuisine, badly! 


For the record, I had a hard time taking these photos due to
 sheer excitement; What are we waiting for? Let's go inside!


For those who don't know, Green Cuisine
 Vegetarian Restaurant is a 100% Vegan Buffet


Kid's Room and Family Eating Area


Level Ground Organic Fair Trade Coffee with your choice of Rice Milk
or Soy Milk. Eco Paper Cups and personalized Green Cuisine Glass Mugs


Biodegradable take-out boxes, bags, plates, napkins and cutlery


The main dining area that extends far to the right as well


Soup and Bread Bar with glass plates and 
bowls, forks, spoons, knives, chopsticks etc.


Minestrone and Leek & Potato Soup

was 10:45 am when I got there, I don't have much for you to drool over

Hazelnut Fudge Squares and Peanut Butter Blondies

Words cannot convey the deep envy I feel looking at that vast selection of goodies. I think there are more yummy vegan options there than in every cafe, restaurant and deli in the UK combined.

Can you believe, in all my years of living in Victoria, I have never been to Green Cuisine? I know, crazy eh? I'm gonna have to go next time I'm over. Didn't know you used to work there though!
