First Review by SirEatsAlot

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
