Lovely host, good food - Edit

Arrived at 6.30 but it turned out the opening hours given on HappyCow were out of date and they closed at 5 on a Monday. The host was so lovely though and offered to heat me up a bento box to go. So nice! Tasty food too.

Cute Little Vegan Hideaway - Edit

This is where I go if I'm in the north-east corner of central Osaka and need a vegan bite! The curry and salad I've had here on 2 occasions was fresh and flavourful both times. The portions were a bit small for the price, though. I also tried a chocolate cake, and found it a bit dry, unfortunately. They make a lot of vegan cookies which you can buy to take away, and they sometimes sell at markets or events. The cookies aren't incredibly, but are definitely decent for hitting the spot on the go. The space is really cute, but quite small and not really somewhere to stretch out in. I recommend calling before hand if you can, as the hours seem potentially sporadic. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area, though.

Pros: Nice staff, Cute atmosphere, Fresh and lovingly made

Cons: Small portions for price, Very small space, Cake was dry

All vegan except at parties - Edit

This place is all vegan except when they hold parties, then they sometimes serve dairy-cheese as a side.

The restaurant is sometimes closed when they're out selling vegan sweets at events. Check their Facebook page, call them, or send a message through Facebook, they usually reply within a few hours.

Food and drinks:
We had sweets with drinks. I had my first green smoothie ever - it was more like a normal smoothie than I thought it would be ^^ My husband had cereal coffee. We had apple cake and a cake with caramelised nuts. We got to pick our cake from the tray! It was all really good. The cakes were a bit small, but no smaller than at other places.

The place is cosy and the owner is really friendly.

The cake of the day is 300 yen and other cakes 500 yen. You get a 100 yen discount if you buy both sweets and drinks and a discount if you order several cakes (1=500, 2=800, 3=1200 yen). We'll be back to check out the lunch/dinner menu @ 1500 - 1800 yen respectively!

Pros: Restaurant and cafe 100% vegan, Friendly owner, Cosy place

Cons: Parties not always vegan, Cakes a bit small as always, Not for large groups
