I visited the Lentil as anything in Abbotsford.This is the second outlet in Melbourne and it is right next to the Abbotsford Convent and next to the Convent bakery.
Here it has a very homely feeling.This place is run by volunteers who all love to cook vegetarian food. It has some wood tables to give it that warm feeling. There are childrens games as well as books to keep the kids occupied. Michael and Cindy from Where's the beef visited the one in St Kilda but they are yet to visit the one in here.
The toilets are out the back.
It is open seven days a week from 9am-9pm and you can catch the 200, 201 and 207 bus from the city to here. Or you can ride your bike here. This place is very dog friendly. They have outdoor seating which you can see the lovely scenery on a nice day.
They have an array of vegan meals there that you can choose from and it is a buffet. You grab a plate and you take from whatever they have. They have a few mains, a salad, an entree and a dessert. The menu changes all the time. All the food is vegetarian You pay whatever you feel like paying as it is a not for profit place. So today I only paid $5 for some yummy food and some tea. All the food filled me up.
I loved the noodles, the salad everything as it was really fresh. The noodles were really tasty
At the end of the meal you pay by donation in the donation box. Also they were selling their cookbook for $54.
