Go-to restaurant in Leuven - Edit

I can easily say that The Veganerie is my go-to restaurant in Leuven... or, I should be honest, my go-to resto in Belgium.
I eat here way too often, but I can't control it. This staff is the friendliest I have ever come across and the food is great and has a good price!
Yes, it's fast food, but if you want to eat something healthier you can always go for a salad. The salads are nice and filling. But I always cave in for the burgers, my favorites are the Smokey BBQ burger and the Toscana Deluxe. I also adore the 'bitterballen' and the potato wedges with tartaar sauce.
There are always perfect dessert options too: brownies and ice cream (if they have the ferrero taste, you HAVE to try it ;-)).

Just bring them a visit and taste their food. You'll be glad you did!

Pros: great burgers, super friendly!, nice place

Nice vegan fast food. - Edit

When going Vegan in 2014 it was one of the first restaurants that came on my radar in Leuven.

It's a nice place, nice location and lovely staff.

The food is all vegan, so it's nice you do not have to worry about that, since they are pretty specialized in making things getting pretty close to what people are used to eat as non-vegan in for example a fast food.
This goes for all kinds of Burgers, Wraps, Crispy Nuggets, Calamares Ringen, till even Bitterballen and some lovely desserts, my favorite one is the raw tart.

It is an amazing experience to taste what they are capable of making being all vegan.

Now the alternatives planned based foods of something that people used to know differently, are not really my kind of thing, now I really enjoyed the experience and tasting it.
I go there to show people the possibility and also with the kids to provide them the alternative experience.

Nice place for lunch, coffee/dessert afternoon or diner, and if you are new to vegan and visiting Leuven, a most do!

There is also a little shop to it where you can buy all kind of vegan food, even vegan food for animals.

Pricey and low quality - Edit

We had 5 different items from the menu, burgers, wraps and a dessert, they were all pretty small for the prices and really low quality, like real junk food but also nothing special.

Pros: All vegan, Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey, Low quality, Small portions

love this place! - Edit

We had lunch here, I chose the smokey bbq burger and loved it, it was so tasty I almost ate my fingers with it! It was on the best bun I have ever had; brown bread and good taste! Fast food with a healthy twist. I also bought a lot of vegan food here to take home. Will definitely come back!

Pros: friendly staff, good location, clean

Nice place for a fast food style meal - Edit

Serves mainly fast food.
Like the food, although there's not that much variety between the different burgers (with a different sauce or a slice of vegan cheese).
Great addition: vegan products for sale which are not so easily found in regular shops.
Uncomfortable (bar stools).
Sometimes difficult communication with staff (always seem to be new people).

Review of our last visit:

Pros: all vegan, vegan products in shop

Cons: comfort

good for a fast snack - Edit

Communication with personnel isn't always easy which is a shame.

The food is good, and quite fast.
There is a little store section in the back with some vegan goods that are not so easy to find in Belgium.

Pros: loads of vegan junk food

Cons: store is a bit pricy

Het eten smaakte wel aardig, beleving was matig. - Edit

Tijdens het bestellen was er wat onduidelijkheid. We bestelden twee burgers met potato wedges. Eerst gaf de dame bij de kassa aan dat we niet twee verschillende sauzen daarbij mochten bestellen (1 met ketchup en 1 met veganiase), later mocht dat ineens wel. Na het bestellen kregen we een soort elektronische schijf mee voor het ophalen voor de bestelling zonder verdere uitleg wat daar de bedoeling van was, maar daar kwamen we uiteindelijk wel uit. De burgers smaakte wel ok, maar het broodje van de burger viel helemaal in stukjes uit elkaar tijdens het eten waardoor het een grote kliederboel werd, dat was jammer.

Pros: Volledig vegan restaurant, Eten is snel klaar, Het restaurant ziet er modern en netjes uit

Cons: Slechte kwaliteit burger broodjes, Matige communicatie met het personeel.

Great vegan fast food - Edit

This place serves mostly fast food like burgers, wraps and fried stuff, perfect to satisfy your cravings every once in a while ;) It's also a great place to eat with your non-vegan friends because they offer all 'veganized' regular fast food options like calamaris, cheezeburgers and 'bitterballen' (which are very good!). Our favorite dish was the vol-au-vent but unfortunately they removed this special from the menu :( The staff is extremely friendly and we sometimes just go out to eat there because we like the atmosphere and people there so much. Their mini market is very nice as well, where you can find some special vegan products you can't find anywhere else in the neighborhood. Definitely worth a visit!

Pros: Friendly staff, Great atmosphere , Tasty food

Cons: Mostly fast food

Rather cheap but bland fast food... Nice shop tho - Edit

I went there twice: the first time I had a "fish"-burger and the second time pizza. Both were okay but not especially delicious. To be frank the taste was quite bland actually... The pizza toppings were really simple and boring, as in tomatoes and onions and that was about it.

It's okay for a quick snack but the portions aren't really that big; especially the pizza was rather small.

It's cheaper than the other Loving Hut in Leuven but the food really does not compare. And there are other even cheaper vegan places to eat in Leuven that serve better food.

I won't be going back for the restaurant but I will be going back for the shop. They sell Tofutti's sour cream which I really like. They also sell mock fish by the way.

Pros: Shop with relatively rare vegan stuff, Rather cheap

Cons: Bland food, Smallish portions

Amazing vegan fast food joint in Leuven - Edit

This Loving Hut is like the McDonalds of the vegan world without the suffering (which even the owner marketed it as) and was one of the most pleasant surprises I've ever had from a Loving Hut. The vegan cheeses were sliced and felt better than the real thing, the burgers were filling and oh so satisfying. The real winner was the fries which we just wanted more of, they were fried to perfect savoury deliciousness. They also sell a whole bunch of vegan chocolates, snacks and faux meats, I recommend the ice cream bar.

Pros: Great vegan fast food, Friendly, English-speaking staff, Also a vegan food store
