Excellent store, not very interesting restaurant - Edit

The store is excellent, the staff are well-informed and very kind.. They had excellent goods. The adjoining restaurant, however, left a lot to be desired. The experience wasn't interesting, and even the dishes you would think were (e.g. the vegan soft ice) didn't taste of very much. A plus for some of the local delicacies, but still, left too much to be desired. The store gets a 5/5, the restaurant gets a 3/5. .

Pros: Excellent store with good staff, Affordable lunch deals , Local dishes in vegan versions

Cons: The restaurant left a lot to be desired, Bland food

just what we wanted - Edit

Pupu Kitchen and Health Store, Nagoya, Wednesday 28/6/2017 4pm
What a find! We were famished (with stomach’s grumbling) and although we arrived after the hours for serving lunch, the staff obliged us by making two vegan pizzas (which were nice enough) and then a berry smoothie and a parfait (both of which were divine). All vegan menu as far as we could make out. Nice setting in a fairly spacious café. Although the adjacent Organic store sold non-vegan foods (included dairy/eggs), very helpful staff told us which were which. Is within a short distance of the entrance to Nagoya castle – cross the moat and turn right. Just before the road turns right at the Westin Hotel Nagoya Castle, turn left. It’s only another 2-3 mins from here but I can’t remember directions precisely and don’t want to mislead anyone. Then ask somebody or use your knowledge of the address system in Nagoya (it’s at Josa 2-15-13). Reasonably priced at about 3300yen for what we had.

Pros: welcoming and helpful staff, food delicious, reasonably priced

Vegan soft serve!! - Edit

I was beginning to think vegan ice cream in Japan was a magical unicorn - non-existent! Two other places I tried (in Harajuku and Nagoya) were either closed or not serving ice cream. Hooray for this café! I had the most incredible large parfait for ¥900 which included soft serve, berries, granola, fruit syrup, biscuits and some sort of custard. Totally satisfied my sweet tooth! My partner ordered the smaller parfait for about ¥500 which he enjoyed too.

Pros: Vegan ice cream!!

Cons: None

The place is near the Nagoya Castle.
When we got there, they said the menu was sold out, but the waitress went to the shop and brought two vegan bento box which were delicious. It was really nice of her. Then I ordered the parfait and it was delicious!!

Pros: Friendly staff, Amazing food

Must go place in Nagoya - Edit

It's a famous vegan cafe and food shop in Nagoya. Just near the Nagoya Castle. I love this place so much. The food is delicious. I love their rice. It's soooo good. Unfortunately I couldn't try their vegan ice-cream because their ice-cream machine did not work. There are many vegan foods in the natural food shop that I found. There's no English menu and the staff does not speaks English but it's ok because there's not much choices in their menu and all their foods are very good that I don't need to bother to make any decision.

Pros: Convenient locations, Delicious food

delicious food slightly overpriced - Edit

they have a set time for lunch and barely made it, and the waitress was really nice. Theres a daily set menu which changes daily, and it was a creamy croquette (amazing), seaweed daikon, beets, grilled veggies, a salad, a bowl of soup, and a bowl of rice which you can choose the type (white, brown, etc). All in all it was extremely filling and nice to have some quality vegan food. Even though we were stuffed he had to get some dessert, we chose the mango parfait which unexpectedly had frozen mango (wasn't bad considering it was a frozen treat and was also topped with a giant oatmeal cookie which was the best thing ever) and a blueberry cheesecake. Let me just say that it was the best vegan cheesecake I had so far. Slightly over priced but then again veganism isn't as known here and I was satisfied.

Pros: quality food, great dessert, generous portions

Cons: location (far from station), slightly expensive

Macrobiotic and vegan restaurant - Edit

I was pleasantly surprised by the shop, which had a good size of vegetarian shop (some vegan choices). The restaurant is within the shop and both are well organized, clean and cared by love.

I went there with my Nagoya vegan meetup group, and we were all happy. The lunch set is 1,150 which includes drink, brown rice, soup, and variety of vegetables in season.
They also serve soy milk soft ice cream (not included in the lunch set).

The staffs were all very friendly and welcoming.

Not all macrobiotic restaurants are vegan in Japan, but this one is. Although, seems like what they sell in the store has some dairy and egg products, so if you are vegan, you have to really check the ingredients.

About 10 min away by train from Nagoya station and 5 min walking distance.

Pros: clean and organized, vegan, good vegan lunch set

Cons: limited open hours, away from Nagoya station, packaged foods are not vegan

Great lunch and friendly staff... - Edit

I arrived in Nagoya on a rainy day and a helpful neighbourhood resident directed me to this cafe when my GPS didn't get it quite right. When I got to the cafe, it turned out I had arrived too late for lunch but the friendly staff agreed to make me a pizza and this was fine by me. I also ordered a dandelion coffee and a strawberry smoothie. The pizza was topped with Hijiki (a type of seaweed) and a delicious cheesy sauce (vegan of course). I hadn't missed out on lunch at all. The smoothie was delicious too and so thick my cheek muscles got a workout (not in a bad way). The staff were chatty and we talked about favourite vegan restaurants in Tokyo. I wish I'd had more time here to come back and try something else - including the desserts.

Pros: Delicious pizza and smoothie, Friendly staff

Great lunch sets - Edit

Pupu Kitchen has really delicious and interesting lunch sets. Sometimes, they have a guest chef who prepares a special meal. Reservations are always recommended, but are required for the One day Chef lunches. The location is very convenient, as it is close to Sengencho Subway Station. I would highly recommend this cafe.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Bright atmosphere, Delicious and Interesting Food

Cons: Need to make reservations by phone
