A Must Try!

Definitely worth going to! We got the vegan lunch set and the burger - both were very nourishing and a healthy lunch. The desserts looked amazing too - got the orange coconut cake to take away and it was so light and fluffy. There's a little shop attached to the cafe where you can get a variety of vegan goods - including their own in-house baked treats. There was also an absolutely lovely atmosphere and the staff were friendly!

Nice vegan options.

Great vegetarian restaurant with a lot of options.

The vegan burger was really nice! A very nice chewy soy burger patty. The vegan burrito was nice and healthy and the avocado salad was a big serving, very tasty and fresh.

They have a lot of vegan cakes that looked fantastic.

Great food

Cozy vegetarian restaurant, I enjoyed the atmosphere and it was quite a big space. They sell some vegan products and vegetables as well!
The food was tasty, it was a little bit small for me but I really like the quality.
My non vegan friend was enjoying the food too:)

Cozy cafe

I had lunch there last year, and found it a bit overpriced. The food was great, though. Very popular so I don’t think you can stay at cafe for a long time.

Pros: Great selection of mains and desserts, Friendly staff, Great ambience

Quiche was so good!

I've been to modernark twice and tried the regular lunch plate with rice and assorted veggies. The second time they were offering the vegetarian quiche which was so good!

Good location, lovely interior

I went to this cafe more than 5 times. The location and opening hours are very convenient. I have seen heaps of non-vegetarian people which is very good👍 Lots of people can naturally experience plant-based foods. :-)

I don't think I like their hamburger buns but I still like this cafe. :-)

Pros: Convenient location, Convenient opening hours, Cozy

A Great Place To Get Vegetarian/Vegan Food in Kobe

I have been to Modernark a number of times, and I always have an enjoyable experience. I am partial to the vegan wraps that they serve, but my wife usually orders the vegetarian curry. The desserts are also delicious. Overall, the price isn't too high compared to other vegan and vegetarian options in the Kobe area, and I recommend checking it out.

Okay food, great looking restaurant

The decor was lovely in this popular cafe and staff, as all in Japan, were welcoming. We had the vegetarian plate and Salad wrap with extra protein Patty. Food was okay, not brilliant and needed some sauce or a bit of spice to make it more interesting . Not cheap for what you got.

Pros: Vegan options , Nice atmosphere

Cons: Not overly tasty, Expensive

Rustic vibes

Modernark is a really nice restaurant and also sells some vegan merch. I wish more of their desserts were vegan though.

Cute restaurant with a small shop inside

I really enjoyed the burger I had. A little bit too much mustard for my taste, but the price for a whole menu was very good but the portion a little bit small.

A lovely vegan haven

Very cute and cosy inside. We shared a fried gluten wrap and veggie plate. The food was all very delicious. We had the banana tiramasu which was a bit wholesome for our taste, and a lovely dandelion latte.

Pros: Delicious food, Close to station, Lovely setting

Cons: Watch the mustard, a tad overpowering, More variety of desserts would be good

Okay food but overhyped

A cute and cosy place with okay vegan food. Had read and heard about the place so was excited for the food, unfortunately it didn't live up to the expectations, but was okay and filled you up. Probably better with another meal then the one that I ate.

Pros: Cute and cosy , A shop area with a couple of vegan things

Cons: Bit expensive, smaller portion

Cute cafe with many vegan options!

Large selection of vegan options! I visited for dinner and was not disappointed in taste and menu selection. The portions were a little small for the price but highly delicious and good quality! It's a cafe and also sells a selection of baked goods and health foods near the register. Would recommend.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Kawaii interior

Lots of vegan baked goods

Amazing muffins, with a new flavor everyday. The amazake was awesome and the dinner was quite alright, although limited in options for vegans. Recommended to go there for drinks and sweets. Staff doesn't speak english, so be prepared to use google translate. Menu shows vegan options. Ps, the chai comes with cow titty milk.

Pros: Lots of vegan sweets, Small shop, Great drinks

Cons: Staff doesn't speak english, Limited vegan diner options

Good location and great food. Small portion sizes for price.

Not the best vegan option place in japan ... but one of the best in Kobe. Prices high for small portions. I like the to go sandwiches and onigiri 🍙 more than the actual sit down meals

Pros: Mostly vegan, Quality food , Not too much oil

Cons: Careful not all vegan , Very small portion - don’t go there hungry lol, Poor lighting
