Island Veggie is down a side street - I walked passed it twice, before noticing the sign pointing towards the side street (see pic uploaded). It's a nice little place, with 8 different veggie burgers on offer, as well as acai bowls, smoothies and juices. I had the miso BBQ burger with fries and it was a pretty good and substantial veggie burger. The place itself is in a cute neighbourhood, nice for walking around with 2 other organic/veg-friendly places I know of - Trueberry smoothie place is on the same little street and organic & whole foods store Natural Mart is in Hiroo, too...so it's a nice place to indulge in some veg-friendly fast food and explore the cute shops :)

Found this place by accident and luckily enough, we were delighted by the food. Great soy based burgers for a decent price!

Cool place, great burgers!

Island Veggie in Hiro-o is a cool little Hawaiian burger joint with a casual, laid-back vibe. They do a selection of soy meat burgers in a variety of flavours (terryaki, BBQ etc.) with lots of lovely salad topping. Burgers come with small portion of fries, bit soggy, but still good. They also do soy 'chicken' nuggets. I've tried several of the burgers and the nuggets, and they are truly delicious. When you've had your fill of Japanese food, this place is a nice change. They are also open for breakfast, and make the most delicious acai berry bowls, with granola, fruit and honey. Last week I had a veggie BLT sandwich for breakfast, with a soy latte, soooo good. Oh, and their shakes & smoothies are also yummy. Can you tell I like this place?

They have a loyalty card too, you get a stamp for every 500 yen you spend, and you either get a free mug or money off. Very inexpensive, good comfort food, and easy to find. Take the Hibya subway line to Hiro-o station and exit at gate 2. Turn right when you exit onto the street. Take your first right and walk along the street for a few minutes. There is a tiny side street on your right, there should be a sandwich board advertising Island Veggie. I walked past it the first time, the street is so unobtrusive, so just keep your eyes open. By the way, Hiro-o is a great area for wandering around in, nice shops etc.

Pros: Great food, Nice atmosphere, Inexpensive
Cons: Close at 7pm

Best veggie burger in Tokyo!

Posted on 01 / 10 / 2015

For me, Island veggie had the most delicious veggie burgers that I had in Tokyo! The menu is interesting, with several kinds of burgers (even Japanese style ones), and my favourite was one avocado burger!
As other people have mentioned, the french fries weren't great. The store also closes quite early, so getting a late dinner there is out of the question. But I think the burgers make up for that!

Pros: Great burgers!, Nice staff, Good atmosphere
Cons: Closes too early for a fastfood joint, French fries weren't great

Decent veggie fast food

Nice food and casual atmosphere. Burgers and "chicken" nuggets we good. Fries are house made and kinda limp and soft, but tasty.

Tried only one of the blended drinks. It was ok. Nothing special but good.

Decent value as well.

Location is a dirty alleyway so the view isn't that great, but it's not a deal breaker.

Pros: Friendly Service , Good Food
Cons: Location

Great fast burgers, very popular. We had a burger and homemade lemonade and sat outside. Really nice place. There is a beautiful park a few minutes down the road which would be nice for a picnic.

Good burgers

If you are looking for good choice of veg burgers with french fries, this place is great, though I would probably like to get a bit more chips with my burger! Never tried their smoothies but they look gorgeous. Atmosphere is calm and friendly, suitable to take some rest or even for a quick and cheap lunch. As other reviewers said, if you take a side dish and a dessert or drink, this could almost double the bill, but overall prices are fine for Tokyo.

Pros: Tasty Burgers

Good Food in a Good Atmosphere

As the previous reviewer said, this place serves good, simple food, and prices are reasonable (under 1000 Yen for a burger and chips, up to double that if you add a delicious smoothie and another food item, which is good for Tokyo). Staff are friendly. Note that the burger buns contain honey, but no dairy or egg (if you don't eat honey here it's probably best to say so, whatever you are ordering). Items which contain dairy are clearly labelled 'LV' (lacto-veg). The muesli and acai items are healthy and delicious. As a bonus this place is within easy walking distance to Natural Mart (on HC) and also National Azuba, which while far from vegetarian, sells some great vegan items, including 'Amys' from the US and even Scheese from Scotland. So come here, enjoy the food and the atmosphere, and stock up on groceries afterwards. If coming from Hiroo Station it's a few steps down a small alley opposite starbucks.

Pros: simple, delicious food, friendly staff , good location for grocery shopping

Nice little Cafe to hang out

Posted on 01 / 31 / 2013

Nice place to hang out, Veg Hawaiian theme Cafe. I wish I was living in this neighborhood or close to it so I could enjoy this Cafe more often.

It is relaxed atmosphere, simple food, good smoothies and juice, and a very nice staff.

You can get good price deals lunch, otherwise prices are OK though I would like them to be cheaper.

A good place to bring a friends/some friends to have a coffee and hang out. Or just on your own... have a rest, eat a bite, read a bit, and relax.

Pros: Food, Atmostphere, Staff
Cons: Could be cheaper :)
