First Review by danielReich

Very cute place - Edit

When I went there with a friend, I was surprised how many locals come and eat there even when they are not vegan. This means that the food that they make (burgers, vegan steaks) are also tasty for non vegans. I also got a piece of cake and it was amazing! The cream was made so well with some strawberries on top.

Pros: cozy place, Lot sof vegan books, The kitchen was crystal clean and stylish

Cons: A bit too far from where I live

A warm vegan cafe - Edit

I visited in 13:00, but there was a note said it gonna open on 13:30 suddenly, we were starving during waiting.
We ordered the food and dessert. The dishes they serving are very nice and delicious but kind of misunderstand what we ordered. We knew the dished is not what we ordered since the food have been made we just ate without mention the owner again.
We had vegan burger and this week special, and brownie with icecream. Everything was good, but they put onion inside the oriental vegetarian should be cared and ask remove it. The icecream and brownie is made by soymilk which vegan can eat.
I will definitely visit again but not at the opening time, haha.

Pros: vegan food and dessert , menu with english, warm and comfort

Cons: sometimes the opening time will be changed , muffin without cover, the owner speak only little English

Heartwarming Spot - Edit

Stopped by for a quick lunch with my sister. We both thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. I had the brown rice burger and was surprised by the culinary craftsmanship. My sister had the weekly special and was reminded of our mother's cooking. The shop owner was very kind and spoke English to us. I also enjoyed the vegan ice cream, but my sister was less of a fan than I was.

Pros: Delicious Entrees, Nice Location, Friendly Vibe

food made with love - Edit

This place is Heaven. I was so excited to find a vegan restaurant here in Korea. Came walking up on a rainy day and immediately felt warm and fuzzy! And when I saw the menu I was absolutely in love. Oh my gosh. Food was so delicious! Fresh! Clean! And flavorful! So delicious. I didn't want to leave. I had the eggplant steak. If you're a vegan - try this place! Even if you're not a vegan.

Pros: delicious, reasonable prices, adorable

Cons: wish it was open every day

Awesome! - Edit

Such a cute place. My sister ordered the vegi burger and I ordered the lentil stew with pasta. The burger is on a plate of rice with a side of salad among other things. Both were delicious and hearty. The baked goods are all really amazing and the soft serve is a must get. Vegan soft serve is hard to come by and this place delivers 100%. The owner puts a lot of effort into the food and it shows in the presentation and taste. I would come here regularly if it was nearby where I'm staying.

Pros: dog friendly , healthy but delicious , cozy

A must visit Vegan place - Edit

The place is deco with woods material furniture. Very comfortable and at ease.

The food is full of surprises and not to mention, they are very delicious.

The lady boss do not like the busting life in the city, thats why choose this location that is away from city life.

My wife and me enjoy our meal there. Definitely a five star!

Lunch happiness - Edit

Cam here two weeks ago with a friend for lunch. We're both vegans. It'd been on our to-eat list. Lovely, cute little place run by a lady who speaks English quite well. You feel like your in her home, basically. Loads of homey decorations and you can almost see into the kitchen. She runs cooking lessons out of here. We were boring and both ordered the "burger". Quotes around that word because it's a sort of bean patty resting on a bed of brown rice, with a few veggies and a salad beside. And some panchan too. All very nicely presented – presented with love is probably the way to say it. Dee lish uss. A thoughtful, Korean take on the veggie burger. I would definitely come back and eat it again. They have a limited menu – 4-5 main dishes and a bunch of desserts. We had the brownie with ice cream and a banana-chocolate muffin. Both really good. Did I mention it's all vegan?! Prices: burger 10,000w, muffin 6000w, brownie w ice cream 6000w.

Pros: Delicious, Desserts, Fun spot

Cons: Pricey

Best in Seoul - Edit

I've only ordered the vegan hamburger, but I've visited many times. I find it a masterpiece of flavor balance and texture. It's a hearty meal and a perfect example of a chef's skill being evident in the quality of food. No processed crap, only healthful filling food.

The baked goods are also of superior quality. Well done.

Pros: Food is all hand-made, Cook is a maestro, Interior is quite and comfortable

Excellent bread and baked goods - Edit

We had a couple of simple sandwiches, but they were very tasty. The bread was the best we had in Korea. We also had a couple of baked goods with tea which were delicious. We took several pastries to go, and they kept well.

Pros: Delicious bread, Very fresh baked goods, High-quality ingredients

Cons: A little pricier than other places, Few food options
