Enjoyable lunch - Edit

I had a tofu pattie and two salads all of which were tasty. There were quite a few vegan options. There's seating available. Staff were friendly.

Variety + - Edit

Visited the central markets today and was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this place. I think I got lucky because it wasn't too busy! As a vegetarian there were lots of different options and meals I hadn't seen before. The meals are on the larger size, even the 'light lunch' of main 2 salads was more than I could finish. The only negative - I would agree with a previous reviewer, salads look better than they taste. I will stick with just the delicious main item next time!

Good veg*n option in the Market - Edit

Just came back from a late lunch here. Ordered the $15 option with the mushroom-caraway pastry pocket plus two salads. Serving size was good for the price. While the pocket was quite good, the salads were kind of bland and looked better than they tasted. Obviously lacto-ovo folks will have a lot more to choose from, but as a vegan I was satisfied with the selection as well. I'm giving this place 3.5 rounded up to a 4.

Pros: good variety, reasonably priced

Cons: food a little underseasoned

Tasty and good variety - Edit

I am guessing the food here varies quite a bit day to day (based on the other reviews at least), but I found there to be a number of vegan options and ones which I also considered to be healthy. I had two different types of salad, and also tried cauliflower fritters with hummus which are DELICIOUS - though admittedly less healthy than their salads. There is falafel and vegan filos available as well as smoothies and juices.

Dissapointing :( - Edit

I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to in this instance. Although vegetarians may enjoy this particular cafe, a health conscious Vegan would struggle to find anything appealing to eat here. There were a few Vegan options, but they were all very, very oily. Not too impressed with the service, but this may have been a bad day for them maybe? So, in short - If you are a vegetarian who is having a treat meal, or don't mind gaining a few kilos after regular visits, this may be the place for you. Not for me at this time. :)

Pros: location

Cons: oily food, not enough vegan options, service

Good for omni's, not so great for vegans - Edit

I had heard good things from here from fellow vegans and a couple of my omni friends but they had very little vegan options to chose from. I asked for a vegan falafel wrap and they gave me a sauce on the side that wasn't vegan, and said afterwards they didn't know if I was vegan but they could wipe it off if I wanted... Not ideal. What I did have was tasty though, and the service was good.

Pros: Vegan food was nice, Reasonably priced , Good service

Cons: Little vegan choices

wholesome and delicious - Edit

Choose from a middle Eastern cauliflower fritter or a falafel and a couple of vegan salads. Beautiful. The coffee is awesome as well!

Vegan Options - Edit

Nice place but didn't have a lot of customers which was a shame, given next door's Queens St Cafe was packed.
I looked to order the Falafel or the Cauliflower fritters thinking they were my only vegan options but they had both sold out (only 1pm). Thankfully they had Chickpea burgers that I could eat with salad.
Very tasty and cheap!
Salads were a bit oily.
Would like to see more vegan option at a vegetarian joint.

Pros: Good Service, Very Cheap, Tasty food

Cons: Sell out of vegan options early

Vegan does not include honey - Edit

Cute location in a nice area away not too far from the CBD. For vegans looking for a main meal, you will be limited to either eating a falafel and/or a cauliflower fritter with salads on the side. They taste great, though I have one gripe.

Vegans do not eat honey, and if they do eat honey then they are not vegan! The first time I came here, I ordered my side salads but thought to double check with the staff that they were definitely vegan - no egg, cheese, honey etc.

The guy told me that one of the salads (labelled as vegan) did have honey in it, and we got into a discussion over it. Me saying "well it's not vegan then", him saying "well, some vegans do eat honey", me saying "well if they eat honey, they are not vegan because vegans do not eat any animal products, including honey". It went on and on.

Anyway, finally I gave up and just ordered. But it annoyed me. I think it is wrong for stores to label food as "vegan", when they clearly do not know what that means. So if you go to this place and are vegan, do not trust the labels that are written on the products - ask to see the ingredients list first.

Pros: quaint, great location, amongst the best falafels in Adelaide

Great falafels - Edit

I have eaten at their cafe and bought from their store at the markets - you can find them at the Stirling markets quite often. The falafels and salads are really healthy and tasty.
My only con would be that when we have eaten there in the past a lot of their dishes have egg in them - this restricted our options a lot as my partner and I do not eat eggs.

Pros: Great falafel and salads, well priced

Cons: lots of egg dishes

Fresh and amazing one of the best! - Edit

This place is one of my favourites. The atmosphere is great the food is fresh and although I'm one of the few vegans that really don't like salad - they have amazing salads and I could eat nothing else but their salads and falafel... I can't describe how happy I am every time I see their stall up at a festival or concert because they save me from an expensive event-food disaster every time. Plenty of vegan options!

Pros: fresh, fresh , innovative

Great cafe in Queen St - Edit

I regularly get salads and the cauli balls from the wayville markets were they have a stall but have visited the cafe and it is very well priced compared to the queen st cafe next door. Salads always fresh and tasty. Do good cakes and coffee too.

Pros: Healthy, Good variety
