First Review by Tiggy

love those pies! - Edit

Dymocks used to stock mister niceguy cakes but don't anymore however I've found they still have some vegan friendly slices/treats. I often come here for lunch with my family when we are shopping in the city. I always order the funky chunky pie with salad and a sweet. The pies are usually nice and the salad fresh and filling. The staff are very nice and helpful. I've had the iced coffee with soy but found the coffee is a little weak. I've always managed to find a seat but it can get busy during the week at lunch times. Check first, but I've found the soups are vegan too.

Great pies and bit of quiet time - Edit

This is my go-to place in the City if I feel like a pie, or if I feel like sitting down with a good book. I BYO book, but this cafe is in a bookshop, downstairs. It's usually quite busy, but I've always found a seat.

The staff are friendly, and helpful. They do prefer cash.

There are of course pies, a number of which to chose from. I always have mine (usually a thai chicken) with salad. There are also other vegan options, and sweets. I spotted a caramel slice there the other day!

Coffee is good. Prices are average for the CBD.

Pros: Plenty of choice

Cons: Sometimes crowded

Cupcakes - Edit

I went on a Thursday just after the fresh cupcakes were delivered so got my pick of 5 different vegan cupcakes. I had peanut butter which was delicious.

There were a few savoury vegan choices that looked good too, like pies.

Pros: Location, Friendly

Cons: No Wireless

Great place for lunch in the CBD - Edit

My partner told me about this place a while ago and now it's become a go-to place if we're in the CBD during the day. I'll pretty much always order a Funky Pie (the best vegan pies on the market) and salad, although they have other vegan options. It's not a great looking place, but it's right in the middle of a bookshop. I'll keep coming back.

Pros: Clearly identified vegan options, Staff understand vegan, Funky Pies

Cons: Unimpressive seating and surroundings, Coffee is not fair trade
