First Review by Nancy Cadet

Good place to stop - Edit

The place was hard to find, address is wrong here but Google Maps directions are more accurate. The place is cosy and located in an old traditional Japanese house. It has three different menu options, Japanese food style: miso soup, brown rice, pickles, greens, main... Just what we were looking for.

Pros: Yummy vegan food in Kamakura near the station.

Cons: None.

Outstanding Authentic Japanese Vegan - Edit

A truly authentic Japanese dining experience that was completely vegan. The kara-age was phenomenal, reminiscent of the days when I used to eat chicken. The tofu beef tasted more like any imitation that I had previously tried.

Pros: Authenically Japanese, Delicious, Great service

Cons: No alcohol

amazing - Edit

It's a little hard to find, but it was worth searching for. We ordered the lunch special, which was hayashi rice, and it was amazing. First meal in Japan and it didn't disappoint at all! It has a really great atmosphere, tatami and sitting on the floor.

Pros: tatami, delicious, English menu

Cons: a little hard to find

Hard to find, delicious food - Edit

Took me a while to find the place-- it is offset from the road through an archway into a courtyard. But once I found it-- goodness it was good! I got a late lunch tray-- chose one of the two options. It was around $15 USD for the whole thing-- and well worth it. There were at least 6 different small dishes-- salad, bean patty, two kinds of pickles, mashed parsnips (?), miso soup. All absolutely delicious and actually very filling. The waitress was friendly, the atmosphere very relaxed-- it was not an awkward place to eat alone.

Definitely recommend, just make sure you really know where you're going before hand!

Pros: easy menu, excellent Japanese food, cozy environment-- big window

Cons: small-- wouldn't be great for a large group

disappointment! - Edit

The dish was very small and expensive. The service was really bad, the waitress behaved like she just want me to leave the place (it was 16 and they were closing at 17) and she was so rude!I'm sure I'll never come back to this place.

Delicious food, cosy place - Edit

Great little place, I would recommend it as a 'must visit' if you head to Kamakura over the day. Was a little bit hard to find, and I went there on a public holiday so I had to wait for a table but very much worth it.
Excellent first meal in Japan, they set the bar high :)

Pros: Delicious food, Helpful staff, Beautiful venue

Cons: English was a little bit lacking, but not an issue, Little bit hard to find since the name wasn't writ

Amazing food and people - Edit

You don't think it's an eating establishment as you walk up but once you open the doors you're in an authentic japanese style restaurant. Take your shoes off at the entrance and you will be offered a place to sit. There is only 1 table with chairs all other seating is on cushions. If you're not very good with chopsticks you can ask for a fork, but it's fun to practice with chopsticks plus they won't judge you. The food and people are amazing and very inviting. The price was about $13 per person.

Pros: all vegan, authentic japanese dining experience,

Cons: off the beaten path.

Tasty and peaceful haven - Edit

I ate here yesterday at lunchtime following Nancy's directions.
This is a great little place in a peaceful courtyard. The lunch set was really good and a little different to those I've had elsewhere in Japan. I enjoyed the flavours and the welcome I received.

Macrobiotic lunch & dessert near Kamakura station - Edit

When you see the sign "Vegetable cafe" on the street side wall of the historic Minka-style building on Omachi-dori , you've found the garden entrance to this ground floor cafe . Open from 11-17:00, Sorafune serves 3 vegan lunch sets, coffee, tea & desserts , including raw chocolate cake, scones and cake.My tasty lunch set had oyster mushroom croquettes , miso soup, brown rice, two kinds of pickles , salad and kanten aspic. I had a slice of pumpkin cake, served with tofu cream, for dessert and bought rice -flour scones to take away. Portions are moderate sized, and service is quick and friendly. There is an English menu. Our table looked out on a quiet garden--nice atmosphere . I recommend it for a relaxing and nourishing meal.

Location : on Omachi-dori, 10 minute walk from Kamakura main station. Go south past the Main Post Office, Lawson, the railroad overpass, and Kyoonji temple. Cross a small bridge over a river, pass Swany textile shop, and a Hawaii theme restaurant. The cafe is across the street from a motorbike shop Kamakura Scoot. It's in a building with several other businesses , but "Vegetable cafe" is posted at the entrance . Walk through the alley into the recessed entryway. Google maps would help--we asked at the city Tourist Information counter and followed their map. Vege-map Kamakura, available at the Info counter, is a bit out of date, and this cafe isn't on it.

Pros: Vegan , Near Kamakura station , A variety of lunch sets & desserts

Cons: Might be hard to find
