nice place with two vegan set meal options - Edit

We came here two times for dinner. Additionally, I stopped in to buy some vegan cookies and granola on three occasions.

The woman who was working was really nice and the food was great.

Each night there were three set meals options, two of which were vegan.

All desserts are vegan and they have soy milk if you need it with your coffee, etc.

My wife and I came for dinner each night with another couple, one of whom was Japanese... so it was easy to determine which options were vegan. It may have been slightly tricky to navigate the menu otherwise as the woman did not speak any English as far as I could tell (when I came in to purchase things from the store).

Great place, great food - Edit

Loved this place. Cosy atmosphere, I went there three times during my stay in Matsuyama. They change the menu every week if I remember correctly, two out of three meals were vegan every time I was there. The guy who works there (July 2017) is speaks English but not the others.

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-16

Pros: Great food, Cosy atmosphere, English speaking staff (1 out of 3)

Cons: Only Japanese menu

Just Wonderful - Edit

It is a very cozy restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. When asking the staff if the food is vegan, they could answer imediatly! (I had this conversation in Japanese)
The amount of the serving was just right and it was delicious. I was especially happy about the vegan dessert!

Another small plus point the chop sticks are reusable and if you closely you won't find much plastic in this cafe!

Pros: vegan dessert, nice staff

excellent vegan options and vegan-friendly owners - Edit

The atmosphere is warm, and the food is wonderful.

There are two menus. One is the paper menu showing three vegan daily specials, "A," "B," and "C." All three of the specials are vegan set meals every day. The laminated menu contains items that include animal products. All of the desserts are always vegan, as are the fresh baked goods.

The vegan set meals and the fresh banana and nut muffins are delicious. The set meals are served very fast and piping hot and are some of the best vegan meals I've had in years of frequent travel in Japan.

The owner/cooks are very friendly and interested in chatting with customers. They're sincerely enthusiastic about macrobiotic and organic food. They speak a little English and understand what the word "vegan" means quite well. They can inform you about other restaurants with vegetarian food in the area.

1500 yen for a typical vegan set meal. My meal included miso soup, tea or coffee, a salty warm drink that seemed to be miso-based, a bowl of brown rice, a plate of fried fake meat balls with a sweet sauce that seemed to be miso-based, a bowl of fried fake meat balls in a salsa-like sauce with some fresh veggies, a small bowl of hijiki in a mild sauce, and a small bowl of cold mashed potatoes. My tea was served with soy milk on the side. Everything hit the spot.

Pros: high-quality food served fast and hot, nice atmosphere, very friendly owners

Cons: not a vegetarian restaurant, English menu not available
