Respond to Review of Keen On Green
by vegan mikal
Review: This quaint place almost qualifies as a hole-in-the-wall. It seats about 10 inside and about 6 outside. Most of the customers we saw while eating lunch here came for the green smoothies and other healthy drinks, so the focus of the venue is clearly on health. There is no 'hot' food as such; all the bakes in the display case are cooked in the morning and are then heated up in a real (not microwave) oven. Alternatively, the fillings for the wraps are fried fresh but are joined by cold fillings eventually. Our spinach bake (one of the few non-vegan items on the menu) was not terribly exciting, but made for a pleasing, moderately-sized meal with the side serving of salad. My green lentil burger wrap was nicely flavoured, but it too was not very large; the salad helped. The highlight of our lunch was definitely the raw cakes from Byron Bay company Naked Treaties. At $7/piece, they were just the right size at just the right price. We ordered one each and they were presented as a 'share' item: one plate, two forks. This was the perfect addition to our lunch, and kept both of us full right up till a late dinner that day. Though this place is relatively new, it has already established a few regulars and will hopefully continue to serve up fresh and healthy treats for many years to come.
