A popular vegan cafe near JR Koenji station. I loved their sweets and ginger ale. The atmosphere was calm and nice so I could concentrate on my work. I am looking forward to try their lunch next time🤤

Pros: Kind staff members♡, Tasty!, A hidden vegan gem!

Lovely and delicious!

It’s a wonderful place! And the food is super delicious. The atmosphere is unique, it feels like sitting in someone’s living room, while listening to nice music and eating good food. I can definitely recommend eating there. But don’t forget that the last order is at 5 p. m. Check the website for opening hours before!

Incredible place

The atmosphere of the place alone would have been enough to make me really happy even if the food had been horrible. However, the food, too, was super good! This is definitely one of my favourite places in tokyo!! I ate the brown rice plate and some tenpura mushrooms.

Meunota, My Love

Das Meunota hat uns während unseres Tokyoaufenhaltes mit Abstand am meisten überzeugt und wären wir etwas größere Langweiler, hätten wir ausschließlich dort gegessen 🤭

Wir probierten die Creme Brulee, einen Schokoladenwalnusskuchen, den Mangolassi und den "30-ingredients Meunota baked rice". Es war alles einfach nur wunderbar und bis dato war das auch die erste vegane Creme Brulee meines Lebens 🥲

Dieses Restaurant kann bedingungslos empfohlen werden und man sollte es sich auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen.

Die Atmosphäre und das Innendesign des Cafes ist zudem noch einmal eine komplette Nummer für sich und ein Besuch würde sich allein dafür schon lohnen.

Amazing vegan food!!

A lovely cosy cafe minutes away from Koenji Station. I had the Indian style curry plate that was superb! Adding a drink to the set is also only ¥100 for a coffee.
I would make another trip specifically to come here!

Pros: All vegan options, Lovely cafe, Affordable

Tasty food

Nice cozy place and fulfilling food! We were in 4 and went for the coconut curry, daily plate and lunch plate. Everyone really enjoyed it. The only problem was the waiting time.. we arrived at 12:10 but was already full and there where people waiting. We were able to sit at 13:15

Pros: All vegan , Nice atmosphere , Good price

Cons: No reservations , Long waiting time

Beautiful restaurant, with welcoming staff and decorations

Meunota is a great place to spend an hour, or two, or five! Good food, warm lighting, and friendly staff make me want to come back here with a book or some work and spend the afternoon snacking on falafel and lounging on couches. The food is fresh and tasty, and I recommend the falafel plate!

Elegant Simplicity

Everything from the décor to the location to the menu was fabulously simple and elegant. The service is friendly and attentive and the menu changes so if you are in the local area, you can frequent back to enjoy new dishes! Really delighted by how light yet flavoursome our order was - it was a wonderful way to start the day and a highlight of our trip.

Pros: Earthy, wooden decor with a cosy ambiance., Small diner that embraces the concept of , hygge and is tucked away in an alleyway.

Went there with the boyfriend on a Wednesday evening around 7pm.
With no waiting time we managed to take a sit right away.
We got a falafel plate and a vegan tacorice place to share, together with a white beer and a hemp beer.
Everything was very filling and delicious, portions are well balanced.
Staff was friendly :)

Hidden gem.

Tokyo is full of tiny plant-based restaurants that are easy to miss, but thanks to Happy Cow we found this hidden gem in the area around Koenji station. We had the falafal dish and the rice/curry dish with a Japanese touch which were both outstanding. Very friendly owner/chef and compliments for great taste in jazz music.

Pros: Great menu, lots of tasty choices, Intimate setting, Good music

Good food

Went there on a long weekend this summer because we didn't feel like going into the inner city. Food was good, even my omnivore husband liked it. I have also heard an omnivore friend rave about this place on social media.

Came in on a Thursday at 6 pm, nobody was here which was nice, had their deep fried tofu which had an amazing sauce, black bean hummus which is hard to find in japan, and then a half size of both the coconut curry and Spanish rice...shared all of them with my mom. It was all amazing but the coconut curry was my favorite!! Also had vegan lassies which were also amazing!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Fairly inexpensive , DELICIOUS

Cons: Have to buy a drink per person

Great atmosphere and vegan menu

This place exceeded our expectations! From the cosy atmosphere to the extensive menu and drink list, it made for a lovely dinner experience. They have a little bit of everything. We ordered the tempura mushrooms, falafel wrap, and vegan plate and enjoyed it all. English menu available and friendly service. 10/10 recommend!

Pros: 100% vegan , Cosy atmosphere, English menu

Nice place

The restaurant is cozy and with friendly staff. Everything on the menu is vegan. The selection of food is not particularly big but at least the curry that I had was very tasty. The main dish, dessert and ice coffee was 1000 yen which is a very reasonable price.
Check working hours before going because they have lunch and dinner shifts and close the restaurant in between.

Pros: 100% vegan, cozy, friendly service
