Healthy tasty food

Clearly marked vegan options and ability to make vegan on other dishes. Choice of plant milks, and food choices are healthy - which can be tricky sometimes. Also has other dietary like Dairy Free listed, which I wish everyone did.

Best Vegan food in Jindabyne/Snowy Mountains. 5 Stars if I could.

Wow, Soooo many options for vegans, gluten free's and vego's. It's cutest little cafe up near the post office (a little hidden, just google it), and it has the best food & coffee i've had for a long time in the snowy's. Nearly half the (big) menu is veg/vegan and most other items can be made vegan too. Real chefs cooking real food with real flavours, I even got to chat to some, they came to check we were liking our meals. The team are well versed in allergies, a friend was coeliac and had so many options to choose from off the regular menu already too. The coffee's are next level too, tasting notes & sparkling water with black coffee's and only place down this way i've seen Batch Brew's/Filter & it was really good. Well priced for what you got, you can tell it's all real ingredients & no processed crap, so much freshness on your plate. Staff were super friendly & bubbly. Wish I had this as my local cafe in Sydney, I don't think i'd leave if it was though. I'll be back each snow trip for sure.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Cater to allergies/dietries, Food and Coffee flavours amazing

Cons: Not in main shops, so harder to find first time , Little bit noisy, it's only small, They need more locations

Best place to eat in the snowys!!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great atmosphere, Amazing coffee with lots of plant milk options

Cons: None

Great breaky options

We ordered the muesli of the day which had dragonfruit, banana and blueberries. Then the breakfast burrito which was huge and very filling. A little spicy for breakfast but it was delicious. Chai tea was sickly sweet which was a shame but coffee was very good!

Pros: Majority of menu can be veganised , Reasonably priced , Breakfast cocktails!

Cons: Nothing on the lunch menu, although allday breaky

Good coffee and food

A cute little cafe in Jindabyne that has a few vegan and gluten free options which isn’t just toast. They state that most things can be made gf or vegan.
I got the avo on sourdough but made vegan which is just taking away the feta and on gf bread. It was amazing!
They also have coyo for muesli
