Loved the Bread

This was a nice find in Lewes. The burgers were top notch and I especially loved the bread which was home made (by a friend of the owner). The lady who served us was pleasant and smiley, there is a small sitting area out the back which was cosy and there was a definitely a vegetarian/vegan feel about the place as with a lot of plant based restaurants. It was a tad expensive I would say BUT I am used to paying northern prices so that might be why. I'd gladly come again though if I were in the area.

Pros: Great Burgers and Bread, Pleasant Staff, Cosy

Cons: A Little Expensive

Lovely café with good vibes

Enjoyed a lovely iced latte here and shared the chocolate banana bread and cherry bake well tart. Would really recommend the cherry bake well tart - it was delicious. Will be returning to try out the vegan burgers here!

Pros: Vegan burgers available, Vegan cakes available

Cons: No straws for drinks, consider reusable ones

What a little Gem!

The meals aren't huge, but just right for lunch. The homemade burgers are seasonal flavours. Their Christmas nut burger was a delightful mix of flavours and textures. The loaded fries with vegan cheese and red onion chutney was delicious.

Pros: Good price, Not too big, Good quality

Slow food

This little gem in the heart of Lewes is worth a visit. Not the typical fast food burger, but everything is prepared from scratch, healthy and delicious. Accommodates vegan and gluten-free to a great deal. Intimate atmosphere, amazing coffee and a super friendly owner.

Friendly café

Small café, attractive interior. Friendly staff. Not a huge menu but enough for vegans. Had a sweet potato burger with avocado plus a coconut ball. Food was very nice. Small yard at the back for sitting out, though the toilet is in a rather close proximity!

Pros: Friendly, Nice vegan options

Partner and I enjoyed delicious courgette burger with added vegan cheese and a side of Thai style dumplings. All really really delicious and worth the small waiting time because freshly prepared and cooked to order. Also appreciated the selection of drinks; I had a Rebel Kitchen chocolate mylk. Staff welcoming, toilet available and nice atmosphere overall. So thankful to find vegan options when away on holiday.

Pros: Fresh food , Interesting drinks , Calm atmosphere

Cons: Wait time when busy

Great simple food in a chill atmosphere

We popped in here on our way home from Brighton. Majority of the food is vegan and there's some really interesting things to find here.

We both had the sweet potato burger with avocado and vegan cheese (vegan and GF buns available 🙌). You could also add beetroot hummus and kimchi (which we tried on the side). They also offer vegan (and gluten free) Thai dumplings, which are well worth it.

They have a great knowledge of coffee and a small range of soft/alcoholic drinks. I had kombucha for the first time, which was very nice.

There were 3 "cake" options for dessert, of which 2 are vegan and all are GF.

All in all, we spent a lot longer here then we needed to because it's just a lovely place to be; the staff are lovely and the other customers seem to be as well.

Pros: lots of vegan options, different and interesting food, calm and friendly atmosphere

Hopefully they will become fully vegan!

Friendly burger bar with vegan options

A small welcoming cafe with helpful staff. I had a vegan burger with avocado and vegan cheese, followed by a vegan chocolate slice, which was rather too sweet for my taste. Coffee to finish was excellent and they have a choice of non cow milks. It would be very easy for the cafe to become fully vegan and I would encourage them to do so.

Pros: Helpful and welcoming staff, Delicious vegan burgers, Excellent coffee

Cons: Not fully vegan
