First Review by Aimz2kill

Highly recommend for plant food lovers! - Edit

Just visited the new Parnell site. Amazing food, good portions & reasonable pricing. Ordered one Mexican special; spinach & cashew cheese quiche; a sausage roll; & two coconut milk hot chocolates. The food was beyond our expectations. Before I became a plant-based food enthusiast, I didn’t like quiches. The one I had today was super tasty, like an intriguing mix of feta & egg. Even though none of these ingredients were in the dish. Also sampled a small piece of the delicious deli ‘meat’. Overall great experience & unpretentious staff. Paid $38 for food & drinks. Plus shared the three dishes between the two of us - was quite filling. I would recommend making the space ‘warmer/inviting’ with extra deco. But to be fair, cafe is pretty new, so probably still nutting out such details

Oh yum - Edit

Can't vouch for the Silverdale store, to which I have not been, but can vouch for their stall at the Parnell Farmers Market, which I would strip bare if I could afford to.

Great quiches, cakes, cheeses and more. We often stop here on the way out for the day to get our picnic lunch. Can't get enough!

Go now.

Pros: Great food, Lots of options, Friendly service

Cons: Maybe a little pricey (but worth it), Can be slow (because of friendly service)

My happy place - Edit

I can pretty much recommend everything on the menu. So many yummy treats both savoury and sweet. My only wish is that they would start a cafe somewhere so they could serve hot food and salads etc. Friendly, helpful staff. Keep up the great work.

Pros: wonderful people, delicious savoury and sweet treats, good variety

Cons: no tables, only once a week, a little bit pricey

Working for the vegan cause - Edit

Most stores work for profit mainly. This one is different. The vegan deli truly stands out, everything on the store is frickng delicious and cooked with love. It's the food that loves you back.

Amazing food - Edit

I tried to sample as much as I could from the vegan deli and it was all yum! They had a lot of vegan versions of usually non-vegan foods, such as Quiche, brownie. savoury pastries, cannelloni... So probably good for the non-vegans that they can who want something familiar.

Cheese cheese cheese - Edit

I thought I would never find a vegan cheese that I'd like - the Vegan Deli has proved me wrong. The Brazil Nut cheese is my favourite at the moment, but that tends to change every month or so. Great for spreading on crackers, chopping up in salads, layering in a sandwich or just eating straight from the package. Yum yum yum.

The Vegan Deli also has sweet and savoury treats - my favourites are the sausage rolls and the russian fudge. The Deli is available at various farmers markets in the greater Auckland area. Best to check the facebook page for up to date location details. facebook.com/thevegandeli

Pros: Best vegan cheese, Lovely staff, Sausage rolls

Cons: Not available everyday!

Amazing food! - Edit

Such a nice treat to have a bakery-style savoury that is delicious and low in saturated fat. The brownies may be some of the best I have ever tasted!

Pros: Great brownies
