vego & lovin it - get over urselves

2 Posted on 07 / 20 / 2014

ive been told that the food here is great. i wouldnt know. ive tried going twice now and both times i was like TOTALLY ignored by all the staff. even when i tried to stop a worker to ask if i wait at the 'counter' or just find a seat they walked right past me like i wasnt even there! ok - it was lunch time and it was busy BUT it does not take much to say to someone 'be with u in a moment love'. i should know - i have worked in busy cafes like this. ive talked to a few friends who have also had the same experience. guess what vego & lovin it - u may get packed at lunch times by city dwellers who think ur place is trendy but ur not that great - there are heaps of other vego places in adelaide that i frequent and i wont be coming back a third time to try ur food.

The best, no questions asked

5 Posted on 07 / 12 / 2014

I've been coming here since '99. This place is an Adelaide institution, and I have yet to find a better burger joint anywhere.
The only thing missing is fries, but it doesn't matter because the burgers are so huge, you'd never be able to fit any in anyway.
I would eat here every day if I could. It's _that_ good.

Pros: Best burgers anywhere. Seriously., Huge servings
Cons: Only open for weekday lunch

Simple And Delicious

I love the wraps and the house salad, though the mushroom burger is pretty great too :)

Pros: Inexpensive, Good Portions, Delicious Ingredients
Cons: Not Open Many Hours, Not Enough Seating At Busy Times

Decent Hippy Place

3 Posted on 01 / 21 / 2014

Mostly filled with veggie burgers which seems to be the main offer at this place and others close by. No gluten free buns which is sad. And really, where are the salads?! At least they had a yummy lentil soup.

Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: Limited Choice, Carb Overload, No Gluten Free Buns

Funky place, great food!

5 Posted on 02 / 12 / 2013

This totally hipster place is hard to find, but well worth a visit! The food is great, prices decent, and portions are huge. It reminded me a lot of The Pneumatic Diner in Reno, Nevada, with it's eclectic interior design. Very funky. Great food - especially if you like it spicy!!

Pros: food, portion sizes, price
Cons: hard to find

All time Favourite

5 Posted on 02 / 03 / 2013

One of Adelaide's hardest to find but best places to gorge yourself on a gigantic vegan / vego burger.

I've been eating here for about 5 years and I love it! They mainly serve burgers but there is also a few soups, salads and wraps as well. The burgers are huge and there's about 12 to choose from. They are also very well priced

I'm a big fan of the gourmet tofu burger, seriously I day dream about this
thing! I'm pretty sure the entire place is vegan but I've never asked.

Nobody leaves here hungry and all the food is amazing!

As people have mentioned it gets pretty packed and often you have to wait for a seat. Because there's only two people in the kitchen sometimes service is on the slow side but these burgers are worth waiting for! I try to go during non peak lunch times.

Opening times seem to be about 10:00 am - 3:00 pm weekdays. Closed weekends and for up to 2 months over Christmas / New Years.

Pros: Pure Amazing Food!, Big Portions, Good Prices
Cons: Hard To Find, Can Get Crowded

Best burgers ever

4 Posted on 06 / 13 / 2011

This place rocks! Amamzing selections of really creative veggie burgers as well as soups & salads, funky boho atmosphere and cheap too. I's still working my way through the menu... It's fabulous, try it, you will not be dissappointed

Downsides - erratic opening hours and always shut at weekends, which is a shame as it would be an ideal Saturday lunch joint, hard to find and gets very crowded as it's only small so you may have to wait for a table. Deinately worth it though :-)

Pros: Amazing burgers, Funky atmosphere, Cheap
Cons: Not open weekends, Very small and cramped

best burgers ever

4 Posted on 01 / 11 / 2010

The burgers here are sooooooooooooooooo good, you always want to come back for more.

It is great value, for $11 you get this massive, delicious vegan burger and you leave feeling very very full (even if you only get a half size).

The only thing is, its very small and most of the time it is very very hard to get a seat, and can be very cramped if there are lots of people waiting. And in summer it is very hot in the small place.

It is also a bit hard to find if you're going there for your first time, it's just a narrow yellow doorway next to the record shop, with a mosaic sign above it, which can be hard to read.

But the burgers are the best ever, especially the tofu gourmet and the mexican burgers!!!

If you are in Adelaide you must go here, vegetarian or not.

Pros: best burgers, great value, cool decorations
Cons: cramped, almost always busy, can be hard to find, can get very hot

Vego and I love it

4 Posted on 02 / 24 / 2009

Come here for lunch before and they have great food. Can be tough going if you have limited time for lunch (eg. working at Prospect like I do!) but the numbers of folk inside show that they're doing something right!

Pros: Great food, Location, Good Value
Cons: Opening hours, Usually super busy

Great little place!

4 Posted on 12 / 08 / 2008

My husband and I went to vego and loven it last week (I for the first time) and oh my, we ordered the lentil burgers and the food that came out was just incredible! There was a HUGE stack of salad that came freshly prepared in the burger. And deliciously tasty. Certainly great value for money, and healthy too.

This cafe may not be to everyone's taste aesthetically. It is certainly very funky with mosaics and great menu writing on the chalkboards, an assortment of chairs of varying design and comfort, probably donated from hard rubbish...
however, this is very cool and boho/retro if you like it...
BUT. If you're more the type to want a well-lit cafe with matching chairs and tables and lots of room to move around other diners, you may not like this place so much.

One thing is for sure, the food is so good and such great value that it doesn't matter whether you like the decor or not.

The other thing... its only open from 10amish to 3:30ish.
And one last thing: Its easy to miss. You have to look up for the mosaic sign as you walk down rundle street or you'll just walk past the doorway.

Pros: value for money, excellent food, funky decor
Cons: a bit small, opening hours, easy to miss

Vego we love it!

The soups are beautiful, the burgers are plentiful, the mosaics and decor is colorful, and you normally leave with your belly very, very full. It is yummy, alternative in appearance, good value for money with friendly service and always busy!

Pros: Great food, Wholesome, Generous serves
Cons: busy, you oten wait for a table.

The bomb

5 Posted on 07 / 06 / 2007

I wholeheartedly believe vegos is the best burger place on the planet. Delicious soy smoothies too, and the soups are great on a cold winter day. The prices have gone up a few times since I started going there years ago, but for $9 a burger you won't find a more satisfying meal (in both taste and quantity) anywhere.

Pros: outstanding food, reasonably priced, friendly staff
Cons: small space

awesome food and atmosphere...whoever thinks this place is messy is a bit to uptight.....i think the place is very clean- if anything its the decor and clutter that makes it look messy- and you have to keep in mind that theres one chef (who is also the owner and operator) and thats it.....awesome burgers, awesome salads and the best soup ever (which comes with the best garlic toast known to man) only problem is everytime i go there its full and i cant get a table.......oh also, try the fruit whip drink!

Pros: food, kitch decor
Cons: not enough tables
