Basic but great

It’s the best food I’ve eaten in Dahab. Basic but really tasty, reasonable prices and nice owners. I recommend grilled veggies, potatoes and burgers. There are also vegan cakes available.

Pros: Food, Owner

Good vegan options!

Little cafe serving veg burger, ‘doner’ - both with vegan mayo and cheese and a few vegan cakes. I think they also offer plant based milk. Not too expensive too!

Pros: Good vegan options , Decently priced

Cons: Serves meat

Perfect veggie burger

Great flavour, texture, and balance of sauces. They use Alpro milk for drinks, but I think they make their own tofu and gf breads. The apple pie is no longer available, but they do offer a vegan “honey” cake instead.

Pros: Delicious, Friendly staff

Cons: Desserts and meal are almost the same price, Limited seating

Vegan kebab you ll never forget

They put so much love and care in their cooking. Try as many different options as you can on your stay.

Nice small restaurant, almost walked by, has 2 tables and a bar to sit outside and 2 or 3 tables inside. The restaurant keepers are very nice people and the food is AMAZING. I had the vegan burger and it was THE BEST BURGER I'VE EVER HAD. Not even in Europe I ate a burger like this. And everything is handmade and freshly prepared. I would even give 5 stars if it were possible. Also had the vegan lentil soup, it was very good with a sweet note of tomatoes and fresh dill. Also bought a vegan coconut chocolate cake but this one was not very convincing.. It was quite dry and didn't taste like much..

The prices are also very good! 70 EP for the main dishes, 40 for the soup and baked potatoes.

Cute place with good vegan options!

I go to this cafe all the time. The people working there definitely know what vegan is so it’s nice to know that you can trust the food. So far I’ve tried the lentil soup, potato with veggies and apple pie. Everything has been really good.

The grilled vegetable sandwich on their regular menu is also vegan.

Right now they only have almond milk which is a bummer because I try to stick to more environmentally and bee friendly plant milks. Hopefully they bring back more plant milk options in the future.

The only thing that would make it better would be if they didn’t serve any animal products. Dahab needs another vegan restaurant and this would be perfect!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Nice owner

Cons: Serves animal products
