I want to live here!

What a great little find in the heart of Southsea. Fully vegan menu. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, everything has an eco friendly feel. Extensive menu with everything vegan, the mermaid matcha latte is to die for! I opted for some toast with avocado and scrambled tofu and I can't fault it. I wanna come back and try everything on the menu. Also dog friendly and all allergens noted on menu

Pros: Fully vegan, The coffees are incredible! , Well priced

Cons: It's only open until 3pm

Filling, tasty brunch options

We enjoyed a tasty breakfast bowl and the big one, along with delicious fresh juices.
Had a Dappa for dessert - yum.
Friendly staff.
Tried the chickn ciabatta and breakfast burrito. Both tasty - the ciabatta would benefit from a little more seasoning: perhaps some pesto or thyme.

Great to find healthy vegan options.

In a hurry so didn’t see if they still sell Dappa ice cream - it wasn’t on their menu.

Will visit again to try some other dishes.

Nice mostly vegan lunch spot.

This is a coffee house/restaurant hybrid. At the front you have the coffee and cake counter and four small tables and then at the back is the kitchen where they make hot meals (breakfasts and lunches) and more seating. All the food is vegan, with just dairy as an option for the drinks. There is table service and you have to wait to be seated. Unfortunately there is nowhere to really stand here without blocking the door. Also most of the tables are 2 seaters so if you come in a larger group you may have to wait a while because they will have to push tables together to seat you.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Bit cramped

We popped in here for breakfast/brunch and I struggled to decide what to have as there were so many great sounding options.

I opted for the "pulled pork" ciabatta and breakfast potatoes. Wow! The flavours were amazing, great sized portions and well priced.

Can highly recommend.

Pros: So many options, Great taste, Good prices

Best Vegan spot in Portsmouth

Great spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch or an afternoon coffee & cake! They regularly change the menu and have different daily specials which are always yummy. Also engaged with the locals and have a community notice board - worth a look!

Pros: Independent , Excellent coffee

Lovely Food

I had a black bean wrap here. The portion was massive (although I managed to eat it all) and delicious. Staff were friendly. Definitely worth a visit. They had lots of cakes and desserts but I was too full to try one.

You HAVE to try this place!

Amazing food, extensive menu and always a warm welcome. The burgers are out of this world! Love the 'sausage' rolls - you have to try the beetroot jam that comes with it.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian and vegan options.

Excellent lunch

We have had lunch here a few times. The choice is very good, plenty of vegan options from breakfasts through burgers and sandwiches to Dahl. The Big One is an excellent full breakfast, one of the best vegan breakfasts around. They are also very good with their COVID rules which makes you feel safe.

Rocky road rules.

Came to have a brunch before catching ferry.
On first sight I was sure I’m getting pastrami sandwich and my companion BLT. Both were nice, served with side salad. I’d say they were bit too dry, could do with more sauce or the pastrami perhaps with sauerkraut or so.
Great coffe, good tea.
We took cakes to have later with us. Pumpkin loaf was good, baked one by one so it’s miniature loaf instead of slice I found it super cute:) and the Ricky road! Delicious. One of the best I’ve ever had, nice full chocolate flavour cut through by the sour-ish dried raspberries, not over sweeted.

For all we payed Β£25 which is not bad. I’d be back if I’m in Portsmouth.

Hope to see them next time going fully vegan.
