OK - Edit

I came here for a latish lunch on a Saturday and squeezed into a space in a row of connected tables. I ordered the burger and wedges, which were acceptable for under $15. The patty (possibly shop-bought) had a nice flavour of corn. Unfortunately, as with many average vegan burgers, the only condiment was syrupy sweet, in this case a chutney. I was surprised that the wedges came with no dipping sauce. I was also unpleasantly surprised to see on HC that this place now serves bacon, which I didn't realise when I was there.

Pros: Price reasonable, Limited seating space

Cons: Only one (sweet) condiment in burger, No dipping sauce for wedges

Good ~ - Edit

Vegan food are properly labelled, tofu scramble was delicious but a little pricey. Coffee was just average.. And I am shocked to find out it has added meat items into the menu ~ seriously?! Not turning into a fully vegan restaurant instead but moved backwards and serves meat? If so, I won't be back.

Why did you add bacon? - Edit

Searched for 40 minutes for vegan food and finally found this place. They do just reheat food but it was pretty good and I'm just greatful that they exist. Just fond it weird that they added bacon and ham to the menu. There's so much meat in the market noone needs more.

Pros: Friendly staff, Only vegan food at Queen Vic Markets

Cons: Bacon and ham in same display

Nice outdoor brunch spot - Edit

I had a large soy hot chocolate and a tofu scramble. Both were excellent flavour-wise, but quite expensive (the large soy hot chocolate cost $6.60 and the scrambled tofu was $16.50). I also had a vegan mixed berry muffin to take away which had a great texture and flavour and was a fairly standard price for a muffin. It is lovely sitting outside and there are quite a few tables and chairs. There is cover overhead but since there is no fully indoor seating I imagine it would be a lot less pleasant to eat there if the weather were lousy... Staff were friendly and helpful. There are a number of vegan options on the menu, but it would be great if there were some more. None of today's specials were vegan.

Excellent tofu scramble - Edit

I had the tofu scramble with gluten free bread and a soy cappuccino. It was wonderful. I would definitely go again!

Delicious! - Edit

very nice food, but more the snackbar style, and therefore cheaper than a normal restaurant, but still more expensive than a snack.
Their vegan cheesecake was very tasty, but not healthy at all. My guilty pleasure once in a while :)

Pros: loads of vegan deserts

Cons: main dish are mostly not vegan, not very healthy

Great option for breakfast/lunch - Edit

Definitely recommended! Plenty of vegan options - the berry muffins are a must try, but also the pies, served with a mix of different grain/legume salad, are a hit. They make good coffee as well. Tried eating in once and had the porridge with soymilk, which was okay, but the seating (all outside next to the market) was not really cosy in the winter :) The service was extremely friendly, five stars for that!

Pros: Tasty vegan food

Cons: Not a lot of variation if you come here more often

Good For Lunch - Edit

After we walked around the market, we went here for lunch. With nice weather, it is a good location although it got very crowded just as we were set to leave. We shared a falafel wrap and then shared lemon poppyseed cake and chocolate cake. It was all very good. I particularly liked the fact that all the ingredients were listed on what you were ordering so there was no need to play 20 questions.

Pros: Excellent food, Positive staff

Yummo Vegan (and others) - Edit

Literally right outside the market by the Organic fruits. (Quite fitting). I had the Corn Fritter without Sour cream (makes it vegan then). Large portion! Kombucha, beer and other drinks!! Definitely a must try. I work about 2blocks from there and I will go back!

Pros: Vegan Options, Kombucha, Outdoor seating, close to

Cons: A little pricey, but then again a lot to eat.

wouldn't go back... - Edit

I used to work at the Vic Markets and enjoyed lots of lunches and coffees from here. Although since I've moved on and don't get a reciprocal staff discount anymore, I've never gone back there to eat. I find it a bit overpriced given that everything is pre-prepared and reheated. For what it is, though, I loved the polenta cake for breakfast or lunch, with a pile of guacamole on top. The sticky ginger cake is gorgeous and the salads are always fresh and tasty too.

The owner seems to be pretty stingy. I always had to ask for double strength coffees, otherwise I'd just get mildly flavoured soy milk. Plus, all the staff were awesome but I witnessed the boss being really rude to them more than once. Bad bosses don't get more than 3 stars, or return business from me. Shame. I do love that ginger cake.

Great Place - Edit

I love this place because the staff are friendly, the food is really yummy and the atmosphere at the queen Vic market is nice and close by. I wish there were more veg places on the CBD!

A Great Option next to the Victorian Market - Edit

I love to have a big shop at the Victorian Market followed by a coffee or lunch here. It's a nice, little sheltered outdoor setting next to a florist business. A touch tricky to find but worth the effort. Wonderful smily service which includes yummy soups, curry, pie and dessert options. Invita Living Food has actually been here for quite a few years.
