Allow us to introduce the latest neighbourhood gem in Bedfordview. Yes, we know it’s most probably a schlep for you too (our offices are in Craighall) but it’s a schlep worth making. And we know veganism is usually met with a tone of condescension, a haughtiness of higher moral standards, however, this is not what this eatery is about. Rather it’s about embracing all people who want to eat ethically (even dare we include the carnivores). Also, do not believe the deceptions, being vegan does not mean eating rabbit food or crunching on mind-numbing leaf creations, and Kaylees is living proof of that.

The most difficult part of being vegan is waking up at 6h00 to milk the almonds. But with Kaylees in your corner there is no need for such insanity. Rather drive by and pick up one of their garden-fresh seasonal smoothies. If calories don’t count, try the Banana Snickers and if you’re more on the health-conscious side of life try the Bali Green. You can also try one of their steaming hot lattes with almond milk, beetroot, turmeric or Kaylees famous hot chocolate.

Post smoothie you might be guilty of dreaming of a glossy smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel or a mushy decadent chocolate cake with an abundance of shiny, silky icing. Don’t fret because both these items are on the menu, vegan style. The Lox Bagel is the invention of Josh Simon head chef and is sheer genius if you ask us. This baked beauty is shmeared with vegan cream cheese, smoked papaya ribbons that smell and taste like salmon, chives and capers, it’s a textural and flavorful winner; it’s basically fireworks in your mouth. Next up is the vegan chocolate cake, just as impressive. It’s dairy free, yet it’s the creamiest, richest and softest sponge cake you’ll ever eat. Converting to veganism yet?
