There had been some slightly fevered Twitter action in the build up to Moon & Hare opening, with expectations set high for this new cafe. Showcasing vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and raw food dishes I thought it might be just the thing my system needed after a week of tiring excess.

Much in the same style as nearby 181 Deli, Moon & Hare is part cafe, part deli with an excellent selection of the types of ingredients they feature on the menu available to prepare at home.

Soup

I was warmly welcomed by a busy counter staff, working hard to deal with a very steady stream of sit-in and takeaway customers.

From their chalkboard menu, I chose their soup of the day, which was Thai coconut, then followed with their raw nori seaweed wrap to which I added an accompanying broccoli salad.

Items were soon with me in my little corner table residence. The soup came with some delicious little cracker nibbles, which were incredibly moreish. The soup itself was very good with oodles of aromatic flavour. This was a very pleasing opener.

The wrap, which brought together shredded carrot and beetroot, avocado, cucumber and salty miso was absolutely first rate. It was extremely bonnie, too, making it a very accomplished dish. The accompanying salad was excellently fresh, too.

So overall, I was really impressed with Moon & Hare. It served dishes that were high on flavour and very stylishly produced. I’d strongly recommend the place for a visit, whether you’re one who adheres to one of their target market diets or simply if you’re a fan of cracking, freshly executed dishes.
