Little vegan restaurant run by long-time chef. Food is soy-free, gluten-free, and without additives or preservatives. The restaurant has a communal table, and the dishes vary regularly. Try the vegan ice cream. Its brand of ready-to-eat meals (wraps, bean burger patties, etc) is sold in supermarkets around South Africa. Open Mon-Fri 9:00am-5:30pm, Sat 8:30am-5:00pm.

a gem of a place! - Edit

had a fantastic experience here. couldn't choose from their amazing menu, so the owner chose a dish for me---a hearty and comforting chickpea and millet bowl (perfect for a cold day) and a thick and rich hot chocolate I had to eat with a spoon! warm vibes in this tiny restaurant. I will be back, again, and again!

Pros: friendly, approachable staff, delicious and healthy vegan food, cozy space

Delicious and Friendly ! - Edit

I found Free Food on HC and likes the reviews, so my daughter and I found our way here. So glad we did. The place is owner-operated and just oozes a great vibe. We went twice during our recent Joburg stay - and tried the flapjacks, tofu salad, a couple bowls, tofu scramble wrap, smoothies and juices, and best of all, the mushroom olive pizza. It's not often you get a non-tomato-based pizza that's this good, and wow was it good. Free Food has partnered with a bunny rescue and there are some awesome bunny references and items for purchase as well (we bought a whittled wood bunny that my daughter loves). Also on offer is frozen food to take home and enjoy. Seriously, be sure to eat here if you get a chance, it's wonderful!

Pros: Great food , friendly owner , well-priced and large portions

Fresh and delicious! - Edit

We arrived by uber and the directions put us in the parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, so we didn't see it at first, as it is somewhat hidden by construction. We were immediately greeted by Ariel who heard that we were visiting and welcomed us to South Africa. We looked at the menu, but I also told him that I was craving something low-carb and he suggested a spicy tofu stir fry with low carb bread. My boyfriend had a coconut curry with red rice. We both had a mint chocolate shake. All was extremely fresh and very tasty, seasoned perfectly. We were too full to order the desserts. They also have frozen and refrigerated food to go. Great place for amazing all-vegan fare!

Pros: milkshake is great

tasty, healthy, conscious food, staff friendly, menu could be better - Edit

Delicious & healthy food for eat-in or take away. Good drinks, and dessert as well. My only complaint is that the food menu on the chalkboard isn't very descriptive. I'd like to know what is in each of the dishes. For example I don't know what an "Alpha burger" is, and instead not having to ask a million questions, a more descriptive menu would be nice, similar to the drinks & sweets menu that lists ingredients.

A must! - Edit

I was there a few days ago and it was amazing! I had the alpha burger which was delicious with the chocolate milkshake! My friend had the iced mint green tea with the falafel wrap! We had a taste of everything and it was incredible! For dessert we had the chocolate cake, which is to die for! They also have a wide range of meals, Icecreams and even vegan cheeses! I am definitely going back!

Fantastic Meal at Free Food - Edit

The hubs and I went here today and we were both very impressed! It's a small place with one large communal table that could comfortably fit about 12 people. If you want a description of the ingredients in the meals, I would suggest checking out their online menu. I had the flapjacks which are served with chia jam and a date and nut chocolate spread. They were excellent and the nuttiness of the quinoa flour in the flapjacks really comes through. The hubs had the chickpea burger served with potato wedges, which was also excellent! We finished off the meal with a slice of the chocolate cake. It was creamy and chocolatey without being too sweet or rich. If you happen to make it to Free Food make sure you try the chai tea! Yum!

Pros: offers vegan cheeses and readymade meals, Open for breakfast, Simply delicious food

Cons: intimate small seating area, Hard to find

Wonderful little haven - Edit

I was so impressed with the menu- lots of choices and very creative. The quality of the food was fantastic- probably because owner and chef helps prepare and serve it. Most impressed that besides being vegan, the food is wheat, gluten and sugar free! Everything made by them including pizza bases, pesto, hummus and chai.

Had a delicious burger, banana cake and the best almond milk chai I've ever had!
All food made with love. Go and support them and feel yummy in your tummy!

Pros: Imaginative food, Wheat, gluten, soy, sugar free, Made with love! Takeaway deli items

Cons: Group seating on 1 table
