very good! - Edit

Only really two vegan options, the salad and burger, but these are amazing! Some of the best falafel we've ever had. Highly recommend. The green smoothie was also delicious.
Just a heads up, the waitress told us the hash browns are not vegan as they contain egg. This limits their breakfast vegan options.

Lovely lentil burger - Edit

I've been here twice in one day now. They have limited vegan options on the menu but do have raw cake slices that seem to change regularly.

Had a lovely vanilla and almond raw slice in the morning with a rice milk flat white coffee then came back for lunch and had a wonderful lentil burger loaded with hummus, salad, beetroot and avocado.

Lovely seating area outside for views of the mountains and friendly staff too.

Pros: Amazing lentil burger, Almond, coconut, soya or rice milk for coffee, Vegan cake

Cons: Limited vegan mains

Plenty of options - Edit

Lots of veggie and vegan options. And you can make the veggie ones vegan but you get charged for "extra" even though it's a swap. I got the potato deal which was lovely but very small. My boyfriend got the roast vege salad with falafel instead if feta which I would recommend, that was great.

Pros: Vegan options. Organic and whole foods.

Cons: Expensive, small portions.

Nice Breakfast but too expensive... - Edit

We had a tasty cooked breakfast here along with a nice kale smoothie and good coffees. A couple of Vegan options on the menu & a couple of vege options that are easy to convert to vegan.

Also, a few tasty vegan slices in the cabinet for mid morning snacks.

Friendly service and a nice sunny verandah to enjoy a Kaikoura breakfast on.

But, if you remove eggs off a menu option & ask for it to be replaced with a hash brown to make it vegan.....you shouldn't be charged $3 extra for that main!

Great cafe - Edit

This cafe was a great find while on a roadtrip! The food was absolutely delicious. The menu had clearly marked which items were vegan and/or vegetarian. It is a lovely, clean and sunny (at least the day I was there) cafe. Definitely a good place for a civilized meal!

Pros: great food, clearly marked vegan/veg options, friendly staff

Cons: only a few vegan options
