Wild mushroom soup & fried tofu

Really tasty and good value. Flavour was perfect. This is one of the better meals I've had in japan.

One tasty vegan option

Current menu has only one but tasty and decently sized vegan option - a couple of tofu and avocado spring rolls with two salads and a portion of rice.

Pros: Tasty and fresh meal, Pleasant relaxing atmosphere, Good service

Cons: Only one vegan option, No vegan milk (at the time)

Old veggie menu is gone! Tasty, not filling, 1 drink per head

The separate vegetarian/vegan menu doesn't exist now! There's a few veggie options as starters - but no veggie mains on the new menu.
They'll try to create something on the old menu if you ask.
Set meal for 2000 (drink, soup, spring rolls/tofu hamburger) doesn't seem like great value - soup works out at 1000JPY (maybe it's great, don't know).

Have to order one drink per person, which are at least 600JPY. There is free water you can help yourself to... But you do have to get a drink per person

Steamed veggies, spring rolls, mushroom salad, apple juice, and apple sangria came to 2940. Very tasty & umami with the dips, but do consider ordering rice (350) if you want to be full.

Felt like Fukutara (5 mins walk away) was more filling, very tasty, and cheaper. Probably try both restaurants if you're here for 2 nights. Chamise is great for some french toast if you're vegetarian - just next to this place too.

Pros: Tasty umami

Cons: Have to order 1 drink per person (600jpy), Not filling, Old veggie menu doesn't exist now

Great place

Really friendly and accommodating staff that spoke English quite well. After discovering our group of 4 were vegan they went out of their way to make an off menu dish for our dinner. After going back for lunch the next day he pointed out a number of things on the lunch menu that were vegan friendly so we had more options to choose from! We loved it so much we went back for dinner that night too. Super tasty pasta, gnocchi, dumplings and potato wedges!

Pros: English speaking staff knowledgable of veganism, Tasty food, Lunch options available

The best/only place in town.

The other cafe in town has vegetarian options which involve bread (the bread contains milk). We went to Hakko three times over 2 days. Very friendly English speaking stuff that were willing to accomodate to vegan options. First night we had vegan gnocchi, the next day for lunch we had vegan Spaghetti and vegetable dumplings and for dinner of the 2nd day we had gnocchi but they changed the sauce to make it different for us.

Pros: Vegan options. , Delicious food and drinks. , English speaking staff (Very friendly)

Cons: No cons.

Very Accommodating

The staff were so extremely friendly and happy to make us vegetable dishes. We have 5 courses in total, small portions but a great place for vegans in the small town. Highly recommend

Only one choice (but a really good one)

We went at 2pm and found a cozy, beautifully hipster-ish restaurant that had very friendly and helpful English-speaking staff.
We asked for something vegan and the waitress told us that they could prepare a lunch set. We roughly listed what we couldn't eat and after a short wait she brought out an amazing salad, very tasty mushroom miso soup and a plate if tofu, scrumptious veggies and rice. The portion size was pretty good and it only cost 1.000¥ taxes.

I wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Pros: really really good

Cons: no options
