ARGI, Kensington

MELBOURNE | The variety of quality vegan options in Melbourne has never been greater. As the years go by, more places are opening that challenge outdated preconceptions about what vegan food can be. Kensington cafe, ARGI, is one of these spots. I popped in the other day to get some photos for What’s On Melbourne.

The cafe has been around for a few years, and always had a large vegan menu. When current owner Gloria took over in 2020, however, she changed things up a bit. Today, ARGI is 100% vegan, with a menu that riffs on Melbourne brunch favourites.

ARGI is the kind of spot that you could visit as a meat eater, and not realise that what you were eating was vegan, except for a few obvious things (i.e. vegan bacon which perhaps one day will come close to the real thing). Nachos, topped with rice, mixed beans, “cheese”, “beef”, “sour cream”, slaw, and spinach, are fantastic. So too, the zesty Thai salad with your choice of tofu, or crumbed “chicken”.

The ARGI signature, one of the most popular items on the menu, is another winner. It’s an open croissant with scrambled tofu, chilli, beans, “cheese”, capsicum, and corn, with a house sauce. Be sure to add the optional hash brown to your order.

There’s a selection of cakes and treats to eat in or take home, plus coffee (with a full range of alternative milks), juices, and sodas.
