Lovely spot

Always very pleased with the service and the food. Has plenty of vegan options and their brownies are super yummy. We have been there twice already and it’s been great. Super friendly staff as well.

Cosy little place, very friendly staff!

Had both burgers ("beef" and tofu) and some sweets. All tasted great, although the satay sauce on the tofu wasn't as peanutty as I'd like. Still good though! Cheesecake was a bit grainy but still lovely, and had a thick biscuit base which I love.
Apparently the curly fries sell out earlier in the day so try to go for an early lunch!

Loaded omelette is great!

Nice cafe in an area that doesn’t have a ton of options. Hopefully they will go all vegan soon!! Good brunch spot; 10% surcharge on weekends and a bit pricy but big portions.

Five of us visited and each of us were very happy with the selection. I had the spicy satay burger. It wasn't super spicy (which is fine) and the burger lost structural integrity because the bun was soft (which also was fine... I loved the soft bun... nothing worse than a toasted dry bun!) and it was delicious. I also had the Tumeric Tango smoothie which was probably the best smoothie I've ever had. I loved that they used a reusable metal straw. I also loved the watermelon infused water on tap.

Pros: Lots of vegan options. Reasonable prices.

Nice local place

Such a cute local place with great food and friendly staff, some meals are a bit pricey for the portions but that’s pretty standard for cafés anyways. Loved it!

first time ventured to this eatery in Coogee and first time time in years been a vegan place in this part of Sydney.
Very nice decor, hippyish.
had a vegan brekky which consist of baked beans, spinach, scrambled tumeric tofu, mushrooms, 2 suzy spoon like tumeric sausages and slice of toasted sourdough bread (was offered charcoal option) $21. Had a berry smoothie was perfect not frozen.
Got HC veggie sticker.

Best cafe in Maroubra

Been going here for over a year now. There’s heaps of great vegan and vegetarian options. The Açai bowl is the best I’ve had in Sydney so far and the coffee is excellent. It’s a family run business and they are very welcoming and friendly

Pros: People are friendly, Food is delicious

We went on a Sunday and they were quite busy but we got our food very quickly and it was great. Breakfast burrito with tofu and vegan cheese is super delicious and the French toast is fantastic! We found the pancakes to be a bit tasteless and average (they are GF and are very thin too) but loved everything else including fresh juices and the super smoothies!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Lovely interior, Tasty food

Always a good option

Love coming here when I come for a visit to Sydney.
There are plenty of vegan options, healthy options and less healthy options for the days I'm feeling something a bit heavier.
There is a good selection of meals and cold and hot drinks. And their hot drinks are not the usual run of the mill. There are fancy drinks like lavender latte and matcha latte to choose from.

It's small, and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Pros: lots of vegan options

Cons: it's not totally vegan

green tofu scamble

A quaint vegetarian cafe, good buzz, great coffee.
Heaps of vegan options 🙌
I go for the green tofu scramble, with extra spinach and avo. The tofu isn't drowned in oil either, yum!

Pros: Yum, efficient and lovely
