Menu confusing

The mushrooms on toast were *quite* nice. However, had a bugbear with the menu which labels a couple of things as vegan but then then the default option includes cheese, so you have to specifically request it vegan. Expensive too.

Decent coffee and a few vegan options

It's alright, but left me wanting something better

Cons: Not 100% vegan

Lovely sandwich and brownie

There wasn't a lot of vegan choice in the savoury section but they offered to make me a sandwich which turned out to be an avocado, hummus and salad bagel which was absolutely gorgeous. I also had the vegan oat brownie which was very nice too.

Healthy option

Herb Olive provides healthy food choices for those of us who are veg. Adequate cabinet options…both days I visited they had vegan banana bread, one or two vegan slices and two vegan salads. The avocado on toast and Buddha bowl options on the menu can both be made vegan.

Pros: Good Kokako coffee, Oat milk, Vegan options

Cons: Bit pricey, Closes early…kitchen shuts at 2pm, Careful staff don’t mix up your order

A bit pricey

Had an oat latte, banana bread, and an açaí bowl. Banana bread was pretty good, as was the açaí bowl, although I found myself wishing they had put in a bit more granola to make it more like a meal for the price. Cute place and definitely worth stopping by, even if it’s a bit expensive for what you get.

Pros: Some vegan options , Appealing space

Cons: Expensive

Great food. Expensive.

The food was lovely. The staff even kinder. The vegan options were limited, but very tasty. The price of some items was too expensive (avo smash = $20.00 for avo/ two small ciabatta slices/ minimal amount of sauerkraut & rocket).

Pros: The few options were tasty and enjoyable, Staff members are very friendly, Coffee was good

Cons: Too expensive, The menu needs more vegan options, Minimal tables available so fills up fast

Lovely but pricey café

A few vegan breakfast options.
Partner had a big bowl of GF granola and a chai latte. I had a berry smoothie.
Smoothie was really nice.
Granola was beautifully presented.
Chai latte was nice. Charges extra for soy/almond/coconut milks.
They were happy to fill our water bottles for us.
Very pricey for NZ and what I expected in Blenheim but happy to find a vegan breakfast option all the same.
Friendly service and seems popular.
Some vegan/raw treat options in the cabinet.

Best smoothie bowls!!

Incredible smoothie bowls, good size, filling and yum! Good avo toast too and heaps of vegan slices available in cabinet, wish there was more vegan take away options other than salads, but definitely great quality organic food, awesome seeing more vegan options in Blenheim :)

Pros: Vegan options on menu, Good quality food

Cons: Not entirely vegan, Bit pricey
