3.5 out of 4 stars 🌟

As this Cafe isn't vegan I'm only scoring out of 4 possible stars. Had a lovely early lunch on a sunny Monday. It was busy without being packed so I imagine it must be very busy on the weekends.
I paid $28 for a big mug of soy latte (which was as good as any coffee around) along with a battered cauliflower burger with chips that, even with help from my friend, I could not finish all of. It was a very creative vegan option and they were kind enough to swap regular fries instead of the sweet potato fries without hesitation. They currently only have one VGO breakfast item but the lunch menu that is served from 10.30am has 2 nourish bowls and the cauliflower burger that are set vegan options. I would go back again.

Pros: Good size portion. Hidden gem in a quiet back St., Average pricing for a nice cafe, Really lovely friendly service

Cons: Additional 10% surcharge on weekends., Needs more vegan options for breakfast.

It’s not a vegan cafè so don’t try and compare it to one

It’s great having this place local to home. I like the fact that they have vegan options - and is not one of those places that say they can make something vegan and then just take something off the plate and still charge you the same full amount.

I’ve tried all the vegan options and they’re all really good.

Great you can add vegan feta to a plate if you want to.

They’ve also had a couple of different vegan specials when I’ve been down.

Nourish bowl is great - and the jackfruit burger was also fantastic.

Great coffee. Staff are really friendly - and the location is ace.
The store next to it has a lot of vegan options too.

If you’re in the area give it a go. I would let it have 5 stars if the app would let me 5 star it!

Pros: Enough vegan options for return visits, Vegan additions available , Awesome staff

Cons: None

Limited vegan options but good

Only 2 breakfast and 1 lunch item labelled as vegan, but the lunch (Nourish bowl) was good and we were able to get eggs swapped out for avocado on one of the specials, which was otherwise vegetarian. Portion sizes could have been a bit more generous for the price, but both size and price were similar to other cafes. Dishes were made up of a nice mix of different fresh veggies (though I'm glad I added the field mushrooms). Nicely decorated seating area and service was pretty quick.

Pros: Fresh wholesome ingredients, Good quality

Cons: Few options
