Austin Vegan Mecca

Oh what a time to be alive and be vegan! The food here is the future of vegan food: high quality, well crafted, delicious, and will have you wondering why dairy cheese even still exists. Everything I tried was *chef’s kiss* - I can’t wait to go back!

They have an impressive selection of house-made cheeses, “outside” cheeses, vegan snack foods, and even *gasp* vegan macarons! Their house crafted drinks are also delightful (I can never turn down a good lavender lemonade). The building, outdoor seating, and location are also nice to top it off. Don’t miss Rebel Cheese when you’re in Austin!

Pros: Everything, Incredible cheese selection, Friendly staff

Cons: Some items are pricey, Pay for parking

Cheesin and Pleasin!

Beautiful day out in Austin Texas. Rebel cheese is a treat for plant based enthusiast who desire meals with flavor, quality and variety. we ordered a BLT that was juicy and flavorful. Their cheese is phenomenal. Offering fresh hard and soft cheeses in sweet or savory flavors you can try a sample before you purchase. ensuring finding something for everyone. Seating in doors and patio. Service was friendly and cordial.

✨ Yesss! Such a treat! ✨

💚 All vegan 💚 I do not regularly eat imitation cheese so this was truly a special delight. We ordered the cheese board and the Tomato herb, Cheddar, and Brie cheese stood out. I also ordered the Capres salad and really enjoyed. I loved the outdoor atmosphere!

Top notch

Definitely lived up to the hype. The Bacon, Brie and Me was delicious, with
the jam being the crowning ingredient that made the sandwich disappear a minute after it hit the table. Cannot wait to go back!

Rebel Cheese is absolutely amazing! I finally visited their Austin location and it’s so cute. It reminds me of France and there are a ton of vegan snacks/drinks available for purchase, a bunch of cheeses in the case, desserts and they have a full deli menu. I can’t wait to go back!!

Rebel cheese has a vast selection of vegan cheeses, wines, soups, and sandwiches. My bf and I love this place. we’ve been there 3 times since visiting Austin because it is rare to find a place that has good vegan cheese, better yet an entire selection of flavors and types. Our favorite sandwich has to be the French Dip. You would never know that it’s vegan and the cheese is creamy. We have also gotten their charcuterie board and it is fantastic. They accommodate pets as well! Overall 5/5.

Pros: Selection, Atmosphere, Quality

Amazing cheeses and great sandwiches

First time at the actual store although I’ve tried their cheeses in NYC. I was pleasantly surprised at how large the sampler platter was and how delicious the Ruben was.

Pros: Large sample platter , Authentic looking Ruben

Cases of delicious magic!

On a trip to Austin we stopped at Rebel Cheese to try it, given the novelty of an all vegan cheese shop. We liked it so much we went back three days later (choosing it over so many other vegan options here)!! The cheese boards are so fabulous!

They let you sample cheeses before buying, but they are all delicious so no choice you make will be bad! Most cheese are soy-free and almost all are gluten-free.

Great find

How fun is an all vegan “cheese” shop!! Staff is super friendly - we were able to sample as much as we wanted (including the wine). They also had dessert - so got a slice of chocolate cake to celebrate a birthday.

Best breakfast meal ever!

Wish I had this place back home! Ordered 3 meals between the two of us and we couldn’t decide which one we liked the best.
1) lox and cream cheese on a bagel was awesome. Used to carrots but this was tomato lox. Full of flavors!!
2) French toast was perfection. Warm. With butter and maple syrup
3) Breakfast sandwich on a pretzel roll was the best breakfast sandwich I ever had.

Pros: Brunch menu, Flavors and options

The best cheese selection!

We were blown away by the selection! The charcuterie board was delightful and filling - I wish I had room to try a sandwich, but will have to come back another time for that. The restaurant was cuter than I expected for a deli, made for a great date night! The truffle Brie was SO GOOD.

No let downs here!

We tried a cheese plate and 2 sandwiches- grilled cheese and chicken! All of the other reviews rave about everything- the food, the ambiance, the wine, everything is very nice here. You can even sit and do work. This is the first cheese cafe where I’ve seen such a large selection of vegan cheeses, this place would be a hit in NYC or LA. We left happy.

So good!

I got the turkey bacon club and it was the best veganized ‘meat’ and ‘cheese’ sandwich I’ve had. And it was huge! The only downside is that it took about 40 minutes to get my sandwich, but the wait was worth it. The side potato salad was great too! #Veganuary

Pros: Tons of options, Great flavor and seasoning combinations , 1 sandwich = 2 meals

Cons: Long wait

My favorite

This place is my favorite restaurant in Austin. I love the Flake and Bake and also the Bacon Brie Me. Everything is vegan. They make their own vegan cheese and meats. You can either get a meal or order a charcuterie board which is also excellent. They also carry desserts from local vegan bakeries and a good collection of wine. My only thing is I wish you could get fruit as a side to their lunch menu items because I don't like any of their side options.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Mostly outdoor seating, Pay for parking

Hands down my favorite part of my vacation. I would seriously move to Austin just so I could eat this every week if I could. The staff was so kind and helpful and the shop had a beautiful ambience. We even went back for brunch a couple days later and that did not disappoint either.

Vegan cheese heaven

We were overwhelmed by how many cheeses there were. We got a cheese plate with pepper jack, an herb cheese, and another cheese we're forgetting but it had three layers- red, white, green. All were excellent and it was so fun having a whole board of just cheeses, bread, crackers, fruit, and olives to try. We also had to try the bacon and brie sandwich that seems to be popular and it definitely deserves the hype! Just amazing flavors and textures, probably one of our favorite lunches we had in Austin.
