Outstanding Quality Vegan Food - Edit

We were finally excited to see so many vegan options on a menu. Their house made seitan was phenomenal in both the seitan fajitas and the Mediterranean seitan dish. The prices are a little bit high (not necessarily fit for a backpacker's budget), but the quality and portion size is worth it. Some of the best vegan food I have eaten in Mexico... and let's be honest --- anywhere! The owner was great and talked to us for a long time :). I would recommend this place to anyone who is tired of rice and beans! Great ambiance too... pair you meal with a glass of wine!

Pros: food, quality, ambiance

Cons: pricey

Good food - Edit

When we visited, the vegan section of the menu was fairly limited. We were happy there was a vegan section at all, but I'd expected a few more options. The staff were very knowledgeable about what vegan meant, the food on the menu was clearly marked, and the food was served elegantly. I wasn't blown away by either of our dishes (both seitan - one served fajitas style, and the other served Mediterranean style) but they were both fairly good. We only visited Le Campane once during our trip, as we felt like we'd sampled all of their vegan offerings during our first meal.

Pros: Clearly marked menu, Knowledgeable about vegan, Nice ambience

Cons: Not a lot of options

Soup to literally save your soul - Edit

We'd been ill before we got to Oaxaca (Mr Montezuma, you have your revenge) and all we wanted was a healthy, tasty soup. You know the feeling? The lentil soup was something extraordinary and at the time, life changing. Aside from our ailments, the soup was really not just timely but really good. We went there twice. The owner decided a free mezcal would hasten our recovery. This proved to be untrue. Also recommend the spaghetti!

Pros: beautiful location, super friendly, super soup

Cons: Mezcal does not cure parasites.

Would expect a bit better for the price - Edit

Nice atmosphere and clearly marked vegan options. I had mediterranean seitan and my boyfriend had tacos. Everything was pretty good but I would have expected it to be delicious for the price (it's quite expensive). Efficient service.

Pros: Pretty good food, Clear vegan options, Good service

Cons: Too expensive for quality

This place saved me in Oaxaca - Edit

This was virtually the only restaurant where I had vegan options available, and an english menu. I ate there 3 times during my 5 day stay in Oaxaca. Delicious food. Can't recommend it enough.

Pros: Vegan options, English menu, Delicious Food

A nice surprise! - Edit

We had been exploring Oaxaca City for a few days when we found Le Campane. When we spotted vegan options on their blackboard I was excited!

A clear knowledge of vegan and vegetarian (the difference especially) was so great to see. The amount of options was lovely as well.

The service was great and our food was full of flavour. We finished with some coffees and they were also great.

I'll be back to eat before I leave the city!

Great Mex-Italian! - Edit

I've been here a number of times, since it is pretty hard to find clearly-marked vegan food in Oaxaca (and some places don't understand what vegan means--like when your 'sandwich vegano' comes out with cheese). The menu here has a number of items clearly marked as vegan including a whole page dedicated to it.

I believe the menu changes occasionally, but some favorites of late (all vegan) are:

Ensalada vegano: Just a great salad. Has tofu and nuts and cranberries

Bruschetta: fantastic european style grilled bread with a delicious topping of tomatoes olive oil and basil

Lentil soup: just delicious soup served with the same great bread

Entomatadas de Tofu: sort of like chilaquilas with tortillas and tofu in a tomato sauce

Taquitos: soy-chorizo in fried taquitos with a sauce, and served with fries

Seitan in Mole sauce.

Many other items, including a great cous cous, veggie burger, and vegan pasta bolognese.

The prices are moderate for here (cheap for US) with prices about $80-120 (MXP) for entrees.

The owner (who is very friendly and attentive) eats vegetarian, but the restaurant does serve meat. One other note on the owner-when a hungry stray dog wandered into the restaurant, he politely asked it to leave, and then gave it some food outside. Also, when workers were making noise outside on the street during dinner--instead of asking them to quiet down or being angry, he gave them free coffee and complemented them on the work. It's nice to support people who are genuinely kind and care about animals.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan menu with lots of options, Delicious Mexican/Italian fusion, Friendly and attentive owner

Cons: Serves meat
