Monk Bodhi Dharma is a hidden treasure, a little warehouse tucked away behind the Coles carpark, filled with beautiful flowers, friendly staff, amazing coffee roasted onsite and some of Melbournes most innovative and delicious vegan eats. They have recently updated their menu- my previous favourite saffron french toast is gone- and replaced with gluten free buckwheat and apple pancakes with raw cinnamon ice cream! Their dishes manage to be both healthy and decadent, with both raw and hot, hearty options.
They focus on brunch and lunch, but also produce an amazing (mainly raw) dinner Friday nights. My advice- just get an entree so that you can make the most of their spectacular raw desserts! My favourite so far is the raw snickers bar- salted caramel, chocolate, peanuts nougat and fudgy chocolate ganache- all raw and sugar free!!
