Great 3 course vegan meals

One of the few places where you can eat a 3 course vegan meal. The choice is there, but the food is light enough that you can manage it. We'd all give this 5 stars except they have 1 meat dish on, which is a shame as some people on other tables do eat it and you may have to watch them! Generally people opt for the vegan fayre. Note that you can assume dishes are vegan unless marked with a V for veggie, otherwise you can panic on arrival that it's all veggie - it's not, it's predominately vegan.

There's a small, good enough and cheap selection of wine, but you can also Bring Your Own!

Pros: 3 courses!, Vegan Desserts, Bring Your Own wine option
Cons: Take street number with you to find it

This has been me and my vegan partner's first choice for the past 4 years in Cardiff, as the vegan and vegetarian food is always outstanding, and we enjoy having a new menu to try each time we come. The food is great value for money, for the standard that it is, and it has a 'token meat dish' for anyone coming along who don't like veggie food. The atmosphere is always quite busy, so make sure you book ahead. Especially as it's only open a few days a week. Service is great, and lovely staff. Favourite vegan joint.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Great value for money, Changing menus, so lots of choices
Cons: Only open a few days a week, Book in advance

Shame it's not open all the time

Best veggie food in Cardiff (with some meat thrown in for the carnivores in the token non-veggie choice). The menu is limited, but everything on it is well worth it and you're spoilt for choice. Friendly and always packed. My only grumble is that it never seems to be open when we fancy going out for dinner, and you often need to book as demand is high. I'd give it five cows, but the meat option automatically knocks it to a 4.

The Canteen is unimposing on the outside, in an upcoming part of Cardiff that hasn't got up to where its going yet. However, although it looks a little downmarket on the outside, the story inside is very different.
Wayne, the social worker/chef with the bandana has taken a well worn old cafe premises and freshened it up. Its not posh, but its clean, comfortable and welcoming.
The real beauty of this place, though, is in the food. The menu is small, eclectic, very varied and changes monthly. There really is something to suit everyones taste buds here, and there are vegan options on most dishes, plus a token meat dish for your carniverous friends.
Prices are very reasonable for food of this quality and drinks are reasonably priced or you can bring your own.
In my view, this is the best veggie food in Cardiff. Highly recommended.

Pros: Excellent food, Sensible prices, Warm and friendly welcome
Cons: Not posh enough for snobs

Best Veggie Food in Cardiff

Been here a few times and the food is always AMAZING. There's always vegan options and a token meat dish to satisfy any carnivorous friends you may have brought along, also options for coeliacs. It's worth checking opening times and booking a table before you go. Well priced: £10 - £15ish for 2-3 courses.

Pros: Great Food, Good Price
Cons: Bit out of the way, Only open some days

Excellent at what it does

I went for the first time for my dad's 50th and the food, though relatively small in selection, was excellently cooked and extremely tasty/satisfying. The staff were pleasant and there were vegan choices. I loved the atmosphere and thought that although the evening menu was more expensive than say the vegetarian food studio, the quality justified the price compared to most restuarants.

Pros: Great adventurous cooking , good variety within small choice, caters for all
Cons: A bit hot!

Nice, smart cafe/restaurant in Splott - and if you're there in the day wander up the street to Hungry Planet for vegan and organic groceries. Mostly vegan but have one meat dish in the evening. Lunchtime veg fajita - tasty and £2.95, very good value.
