Love this place! - Edit

I've never had a sit down meal in the cafe but I regularly come here for the cabinet food, coffee and grocery items as I work nearby. They often have awesome specials on fruit & vege too, like $1 organic bananas.

Pros: Lots of vegan treats, Great range of grocery items, Friendly staff

Lovely desserts - Edit

I had lunch at Sayings Cafe with friends. Lots of vegan food and all vegetarian. Very friendly staff. The best thing I had was the dessert - a raw caramel pie with coconut ice cream, and I got to choose the flavour! At only $7.50 I think this really is a bargain. There were smoothies too and lots of salads. I had a tofu in apricot sauce with wild rice and a salad for $18 and my companions had the sausages with gravy and roasties for the same price. Very helpful staff and nice dining area. Good to be able to eat and get your grocery shopping afterwards.

I went for lunch today. Don't know if it is my imagination but it seems to be less great for vegans and overall a lot more pricey. They still have some raw vegan desserts. The savoury vegan options are basically bowls of beans or soup. I ordered vegan nachos but got a bowl of very sloppy beans, more like a soup, with corn chips and a small spoonful of cashew mayo in the middle. I paid a dollar more to have the vegan option which was exactly the same as the non vegan option minus the cheese. So basically it cost more to have less! It really wasn't a great dish at all and cost $20 for very basic ingredients and no cooking skills. There was one vegan option for the salad and I wish I had just had that instead because at least it looked interesting. I don't think they understand vegan food. I doubt I will go back.

Pros: great vegan desserts, modern environment, you can buy groceries at the same locati

Cons: not central, too many beans, expensive for what it is
