Delicious Vegan Options and Live Music

A lovely restaurant in downtown Dunedin with inside and outside seating areas. We have eaten here twice and both times sat outside to hear the live music. Efficient staff and every dish we have tried was delicious. Have food for everyone, including vegan options that are marked on the menu. We especially like the Ma Po Tofu tacos on wheat tortilla and the hearts of palm “crab” cakes. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Pros: Vegan Options

Good variety of vegan options and nice staff

I recently visited this restaurant and was impressed by the variety of vegan options on the menu. However, I was disappointed by the small portions, mostly small plates, so you'll have to get a few things to fill up. Despite this, the environment was lovely, and the staff were incredibly friendly. Overall, I recommend this restaurant for those looking for vegan options and a pleasant dining experience.

Delicious vegan options and excellent service

I ordered the palm cakes and tofu taco. Small amount of food, but surprisingly filling. I thought both items tasted great and the presentation was beautiful. All vegan items were clearly marked on the menu. This was my very first Apple Pay transaction and they were helpful in walking me through it. I left my sweater in the booth and the server ran down the street to return it. Much appreciated.

Pros: Vegan items clearly marked , Server was helpful and went the extra mile

Cons: Not fully vegan, Didn’t see an enticing vegan dessert option

Creative, fresh vegan fare

Wow! This is phenomenal stuff. We sampled a variety of items from the menu and were impressed by the simple yet innovative flavor combinations. The cocktails were also fantastic. This is a really nice option in Dunedin that would work equally as well for a casual lunch as it would a nice night out. Highly recommended!

5 star worthy

Loved this place. I’ll be dreaming of the palm “crab” cakes— they were exceptional. Everything we tried here was wonderfully prepared and the variety of options available to vegans was great. Wonderful service too!

Tried to do 5 star, as this was definitely five star dining. But, alas, and gratefully, they do have plenty of options for omnis...so 5 star not allowed. I had the Bao Bun Falafel even though it has milk powder because I have always wanted to try one. Now I will figure out how to do them myself vegan. Also had the crispy taco which I dont have a picture of because I nearly inhaled it, we had been biking the Pinellas trail all day. The Palm Cakes were amazing. Texture just like a crab cake, flavor of curry was pleasant surprise. Loved.loved loved. All plates qere works of art, all flavors perfectly balanced. Chef should win Top Chef. IMO.

Pros: Options for all, Amazing flavor profiles, Dished plated like 5 star resteraunt

Delicious and varied vegan options

I've been vegan for over 15 years, and this was some of the best prepared tofu I've ever had (they make the coating from chickpea flour). Server was friendly and knowledgeable about ingredients and substitutions. Will definitely return when in the area.

Great place

Very large selection for vegans. Has good vine selection too. Perfect to visit when you are going with non-vegan friends. Their falafel is a must try. I have never tasted falafel this good
