hole in the wall, but nice food - Edit

Good reasonable prices, just make sure you have cash. I recommend the falafel pasta!

Falafel! - Edit

Great falafel! Check it out. Not much more to say about this place that hasn't already been said. It's somewhere to grab a quick bite.

Pros: prices, food

Cons: take away sort of place, selection

Ok for a quick lunch - Edit

We thought we knew all the vegetarian food sources in the CBD but there you go, we didn't know about 'Food for thought' until last week.

'Food for thought' is a take-away cafe that has falafel rolls and some hot casserole / pasta / curry dishes. We tried some of the hot dishes and as already mentioned by other reviewers the food is simple and ok and doesn't taste very exciting. We didn't try the falafel rolls but we saw lots of people order them so they seem to be popular.

The cafe is located in an arcade between George street and York street. The George street entrance is exactly opposite Wynyard station but it's easy to miss because it's quite narrow. The arcade snakes around a couple of corners and there are only 2 other shops inside the arcade and they are both behind Food for thought, so just keep walking...

Closer to the cafe there are a few small tables along the corridor that belong to the cafe. There are seats for about 10 people.

This is an ok place for a quick bite to eat or to grab some take away in the city but it's not somewhere 'nice' where you would take somebody for an extended chat over lunch or coffee.

Good for quick weekday lunch - Edit

The hot food is average: overcooked pasta and veges, beans and rice. My choice is the lentil soup and the veggie burger on a roll. Comes with lettuce, tomato, tabouli, tahini, chilli sauce. They also do this on a wrap. The most popular item is the glory roll which is a felafel wrap. I don't like the glory roll, but I am fussy when it comes to felafels.

the best falafel in the CBD? - Edit

the old school vegetarian bain marie stodge (lentils, chick peas, fava beans with brown rice, couscous etc.) is warming and filling in winter but the justly famous glory (falafel) rolls are great (if a teeny bit dry. ask for extra tahini?) at any time of year. an affordable, quick, dependable and vegan city lunchtime option. the 2 elderly (egyptian?) proprietors are an amusing double act too :-)

Pros: cheap, wholesome

Cons: limited choice

my carnivores approved the veggie burger - Edit

well, it looked more like a veggie pancake fritter rolled up in a wrap but tiny place that looks like a "hole in a wall" but my carnivore friend approves the veggie burger and baklava was okay.
