Fresh and nutritious

Posted on 02 / 23 / 2014

Such a pleasant place to visit for a sit down lunch or for a good vegetarian take-away meal. They have a simple menu that changes with a special each day, often some kind of spicy something, liberal use of fresh greens, beans and flavourful herbs and spices. Wraps and burgers come in vegan options, plus amazing drinks and smoothies makes Keen on Green a vegetarian's lunch-time saviour. If you ask them nicely they do lunch time deliveries to businesses in the Lismore CBD too. Definitely a five cow experience. =)

Pros: Delicious & Nutritious, Location, Good Service

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.

Pros: Reasonable prices, On-site owner to help customers, Friendly atmosphere
Cons: Smallish variety of food

This place is located in the centre of town and it's handy having Fundies grocery store next door. Four of us had a lunch of mixed dishes: vegan lasagne, veggie bakes, etcetera, all with fresh side-salads. The raspberry/lemon 'cheesecake' was one of many sliced cakes and sweets available. The fresh juice was fine. We sat outdoors on the footpath to get some sunshine, but there's also indoor seating. Prices are moderate and reasonable considering the handy location and good quality of the food.

Pros: friendly staff, good value, great food
