An Indian Gem!
Had a group dinner here just before christmas.. it's always a fun experience to pick & choose the content of your plate & the buffet is fresh, colourful & delicious. Definitely all vegetarian but I don't believe that it is vegan, at least the dessert is not. The views of the swan river are lovely & the ambience here is buzzing & I have never seen it quiet! Yes you will probably have to line up to get food but the line moves quickly & it's worth it. They do frown upon leaving leftovers & I think this is a good thing for many people to consider. It's "pay what you feel" and I usually pay $10 - $15.
37 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, Sydney
I came here with a friend about a week ago. The place was ultra busy but the staff found awesome booth seats for us. I had the vegan mushroom risotto & my friend had the eggplant schnitzel. The service was relaxed & friendly, the food came reasonably quickly & both meals were absolutely delish. Great vibe, I'd definitely go back.
Via Celsa 4, Roma, Rome, Italy
Visited for lunch. Very helpful & friendly staff. The menu is completely in Italian however the vegan options have asterisks making it ultra easy. Also the chef was helpful & pointed out which dessert was vegan. I had the daily lunch special for 10 euro & a dessert (dried fruit ball) for 4 euro & while the food was lovely I felt that the serving sizes was small.. There was a larger lunch option available for 13 euro so next time I will try that one!
182 King St, Newtown
A trusty favourite =)
I have dined at Green Palace at least a dozen times.. I can safely say it has the tastiest mock meat style dishes I have found. My favourite is the lemongrass rib. They have a menu or a small but quality buffet for under $11. It's quite a casual cafe style place, very simple but with a few strange thai style decorations around. I can definitely recommend it.
Cook & Phillip Park CRN, Sydney
First time I came here I was happy with their all vegan dinner menu with dishes mostly under $20 and a beautiful romantic park setting. The second time I came here around midday for their Yum Cha & it was also awesome! The desserts were especially wonderful. The staff were friendly & attentive & the place is licensed. It's an excellent place for a slightly more special occasion but still very affordable.
13 Ratchadamnoen Rd Soi 4, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Fantastic, a favourite.
Highly recommend the Burmese Tea Leaf Salad - wow! Massive flavour punch & a decent serving, 100tbh. Add rice & this is a very satisfying meal all on its own. I chose this almost every visit, it was my favourite.
Also, the vegan Pad Thai here is the best I have encountered in 2 months of Thailand. The fresh lime wedge & the finely ground peanuts make it. It's less salty than Pad Thai elsewhere, which I prefer.
The coffee here is good. The smoothies are excellent with optional "superfood" additions such as spirulina.
Visited at least 6 times during Feb. Love the food here-- organic, mostly vegan options.
The vibe is relaxed, non-rushed, friendly. There are tables with chairs or cross legged cushion options. Plenty of space.
The owners are wonderfully welcoming. At least one of them speaks French.
Take mosquito repellent. It's an outdoor setting & they can get annoying. The owner kindly provides natural repellent too.
1900 S First St, Austin, USA
Rockin' yet relaxed veg cafe!
Visited Oct 2013. Busy yet spacious with heaps of seating options: sit at the bar, take your laptop to the communal tables, sit inside/outside, whatever! Brick walls & wooden fit out makes it feel warm & homely & the decor is kinda rustic & distinctly Austin. The food is nourishing, whole food vegetarian dishes. I had the tamales & ooohhh they were good! Both gluten free & vegan options available. The servers are friendly & cute & not pretentious! The wifi is free! The atmosphere is relaxed! The prices are reasonable! Go here.

37, Jalan Kota Laksamana 1/2, Taman Kota Laksamana Seksyen 1/2, Malacca, Malaysia
Excellent buffet with healthy options
Pleasing buffet selection! Included tempeh, braised eggplant, steamed broccoli & cauliflower w/ Chinese mushroom, pumpkin, tofu, green beans & other various steamed greens, a few noodle dishes & a various mock meat dishes.
There were at least a dozen things to choose from & many healthy/simple vegetable choices (if mock meat isn't your preference).
Also a choice of white or brown steamed rice.
Prices are up on the board. We paid 7 ringgit per plate & we had our plates quite full with about 6 choices. I think it might be cheaper if you serve yourself less food. :)
All was delicious & fresh, I can recommend to others.
Jalan Raya Campuhan, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Stylish & romantic ambiance.
Clear Cafe definitely impresses with looks alone. We came here for our final evening in Bali & had a lovely dinner. My friend had vegan Pad Thai & claimed it was the best he's ever tasted (Though I found it overly salty.) I had a curry of some sort & was very happy both with flavour & presentation. The smoothies were ok, mine was strawberry with young coconut milk & I find the young coconut has an unpleasant sour taste which overpowers, that's a personal thing..the young coconuts are very common use in Bali. The ambiance here was great, spacious with low lighting & modern decor. It felt like a special night out for a very affordable price. Something to note: as we were leaving we noticed a mouse running around under the tables.

C/Hospital 74, Barcelona, Spain
I loved this place!
This is my favourite vegan cafe to date.. go here when you have an hour or so to take a seat & relax as, yes the place is very chilled & casual & the service is unhurried. Very friendly & helpful staff, lovely quality of food. I came in for lunch on three occasions & each visit it was awesome & satisfying. The lunch special is bread bowl, entree, main, dessert, wine/water for 9 euro, which seems too cheap!
58 Rue Rambuteau, Paris, France
Visited this last week & had one of their breadless burgers with a side of green beans & salad. It's kind of set up like a fast food joint, with the picture menu behind the counter & the tacky placky plates, however the tables & interior are like a lovely cafe (and cafe prices, my burger was 10 Euro). It was tasty though probably wouldn't be my first pick for vegan in Paris simply due to value.
397 Bong Bong St, Bowral
Honest little snack stop.
Visited October, 2013. A humble cafe, SOL Food may be small yet serves with a sweet spirit.. The menu reads "By maintaining a good heart each moment, everyday is a good day." During my visit, they also had the famous pro vegetarian quote by Einstein presented on the wall, in both English & Chinese. The food is mostly Asian style cuisine, rice paper rolls, sushi, dumplings.. some dishes contain a little bit of mock meat. They serve complimentary hot tea when you dine in & it's hard to beat on value with $7 for a plate of veg curry or a bowl of laksa. They seem to get a decent lunch crowd, it was a full house when I visited. (Though with four tables, a full house means 8 people!) It isn't the fanciest place to dine but it's a friendly lunch or take-away option for vegetarians in the area.
Moon Muang Soi 6, 2nd floor, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Nourishing community hub
**After February they are closing - temporarily as I understand it - to relocate. So check directly with them before visiting.
The overall vibe is non-rushed, stay as long as you like, relax, recline. Floor seating, cushions, guitars, plenty of spaces.
Food: delicious, organic, mostly vegan. The tofu burger is the best, 90tbh. The tea selection includes Ayurvedic blends plus old favourites - loved the soy chai, 60tbh. The smoothies were my least favourite, mostly coconut milk, 80tbh.
What I recommend most are the events. I LOVED the Open Mic nights. By the end of the evening I'd feel so energised & inspired by the beautiful people who got up & shared something. I got to enjoy diverse music, spoken word, magic, even a Karen rapper.
Tea Tree really embodies the overall feel of Chiang Mai - creative yet inclusive, buzzing with life yet relaxed.
159 St Georges Road, Northcote
After reading the previous reviews, I was pretty excited to experience Veggie Kitchen! Also, some non-veg friends invited me so I was hoping the food would impress their tastebuds. Unfortunately, most of our chosen dishes were on the bland side. The Dumplings were bland. The Ah Gei was okay. The Vermicelli was quite tasty. The Yam Spring Rolls were the only dish which I can say we all thought was delicious & amazing! The service was wonderful & the place was packed on a Tuesday night.. so maybe we just chose the wrong dishes.
Nimmanhaemin Rd, Suthep, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Earthy & refined
Loved this place. They have fantastic & creative presentation of their food. Colourful, delicious & nourishing menu.
I had pineapple fried rice which had lots of veg throughout, snow peas, carrots, tomato, cabbage.. 85B
Friend had tofu & ginger curry which was also veg-a-plenty.. ?B
Beautiful smoothie here too: pineapple, banana & strawberry with mint garnish.. 60B
Vegan cookies: a bit dry for my liking.. 40B per packet
Seems to be run by Japanese staff. Has an earthy & refined vibe, lots of attention to detail & sincere service. Very comfy & unrushed - felt like I could sit in there for hours. Would return!
I'd give 5 stars if the menu was 100% vegan.
opposite Maeyen Pagoda, Pai, Thailand
Earth Tone sings to my heart (and tastebuds)
The food is delicious, nourishing, creative, fresh, unique. Can recommend the tempeh sandwich for lunch. The raw cakes look small but have huge flavour, easily shared. Loved the bliss balls, coffees & extensive herbal tea selection.
The dishes are designed around high density nourishment, way less filler, worth every bit. They even make waffles feel wholesome! Lots of superfood options for the smoothies.
There's no waiters. To place an order, you write your order on a piece of paper (provided at your table) & then give it to the kitchen. They will bring the food to your table though. This is a common method in north thailand.
Earth Tone also seems like a very enviro-conscious operation to me. They only used plastic for some take away drinks.
Dined here approx 4 times. I'd eat here every day if I could. :)
2/146 Hunter St, Newcastle
Correction of description
Visited the Newcastle Go Vita a few days ago to find some mock meat as per description. The store person said they do not sell any fresh/cold grocery goods. They do sell vitamins, special cooking needs (ie, gluten free) & dry foods. No tofu, tempeh, mock meats etc.
112 Darlinghurst Rd, Darlinghurst
Easy vegetarian night out.
This place used to be one of my favourite finds in Sydney. A vegetarian buffet and an amazing mini cinema where you recline on huuuge cushions. =) Last week I visited it for about the 4th time in two years and though it was still very enjoyable, I thought the buffet seems like it has diminished. The other reviews are correct, it is questionable as far as vegan options go. They have some greasy western staples too; mac n cheese, wedges (probably an option for fussy kids?) But the ambience & vibe is warm & lively, dark red walls & dim lights. It's equally perfect for a group dinner or a date. The service is wonderful too.
