Jamie's Italian, Civic

We booked Jamie's Italian for a family dinner and so the restaurant had some prior notice that the vegans were coming. We had some personal attention from one of the chefs, who suggested a number of options that he could make vegan (and gluten-free). This personal touch gave us confidence that we were in capable hands. The dishes which arrived did not disappoint. In particular, the olive risotto was both delicious and attractively presented.

Perfect Break Vegetarian Cafe, Gerringong

This cafe has been on our list for a while so we're glad we were finally able to visit. There are some good vegan options on the menu, including the tofu burger pictured below, which features a lovely satay sauce. The roast vegetable salad was delicious too – avocado was easily substituted for the cheese, making for a very satisfying vegan dish. There are some sweet treats for sale at the counter, although you will need to ask which ones are animal-free. The atmosphere is very pleasant and if you sit upstairs you will be treated to a pretty view out towards the ocean.
