We visited this cafe for a late lunch today and we were glad we did. The young woman who served us was genuine and helpful, the food was interesting and yummy, and the coffee was good.

There are various options for the amount of food you want from the bain-marie set up. Small plate means you get three choices, medium plate means you get four choices and big plate five choices etc. There are warm curries and other dishes and interesting salads to choose from. I chose the eggplant curry, the chick pea curry, the quinoa salad and the broccolini salad. They were all good.

This cafe also stocks the wonderful Addiction Food brand of brownies and other yummy sweet things, plus a good range of less commonly available soft drinks. The cafe itself was clean and felt like a nice place to be.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good food that left us feeling good, Good location

Visited in March 2013. It's a lovely light filled cafe with plenty of table space. A friend & I both chose a selection from the buffet, about $9 for three choices. The other reviews go into menu details so I won't repeat! I did think that actually the food wasn't warm enough.. it was tasty regardless. Great flavour variety in choices. Great coffee!

Pros: delicious variety, organic wholefoods, vegan dessert selection
Cons: portions on the small side

Delicious Organic Vegan food! 100% gluten free and vegetarian. Range of 6 salads and about 12 hot mains as well as desserts and yummy chai! Organic coffee sourced from Jack of Harts, Engadine. All the food is vegan except honey in some desserts or in hot chocolate (they put it in without asking us, I could taste it, but they have rice syrup as an alternative), so be sure to clarify which you want! They do provide soy or cows milk for hot drinks. Some choices included chickpea kofta balls in tangy tomato sauce, chickpea and eggplant curry and tofu and pumpkin, satay tofu and eggplant with tomato or satay sauce, corn cakes and curry. The salads included sweet potato, broccoli and beans, carrot, tabouleh, etc. Also had relishes/sauces including eggplant tahini, hommus, tomato, pesto. The pesto and eggplant tahini was yummy. I got a take away large which had a great mixture of a lot of so yummy things with relishes too! Everything tasted so vibrant. Also had a carrot cake with maple syrup coconut on top! Didn't even notice it was all gluten free! They also have Ruby Fruit cakes and cheesecakes, YUM! I had lime and coconut cake, the icing was a bit much though. Friendly staff, even after one year! They said they make everything in a kitchen down the coast and bring it up. Plenty of stroller room in the cafe and organic drinks in the fridge. Kid play equipment not far away and beach a short stroll. All I can say is yummy!! I've been back about 5 or 6 times as I live in the Sutherland Shire.

Vegans and vegetarians should head to Cronulla!

This is a beautiful, light and airy cafe serving exclusively vegetarian (egg-free) and mostly vegan food. Optional dairy milk or cream is available with some drinks and desserts, and some of the sweets may have honey, otherwise everything was vegan. The food is delicious, extremely fresh, light and with a healthy, wholefood, organic emphasis. They have salads, koftas with spicy tomato sauce (mmmmm!) and other hot dishes based on chickpeas or eggplant. We have only been once so far so I can't remember everything. I do remember we had two desserts! Banana-walnut cakes with toasted coconut and black sticky rice with coconut cream. Fantastic! The cake went particularly well with the hot chai made with bonsoy (the queen of soymilks). We also got some cardamom-date balls to take home. Too much dessert is never enough! They also have brown rice, which is a rarity in Sydney restaurants and really puts them on the map for me. Sydney vegans and vegetarians are strongly advised to make the trip to Cronulla as soon as they can!
