Great - Edit

Such a cute little café with a gallery on the second floor. The staff is really friendly & the atmosphere is great!
I had the tofu burger with minestrone soup on the side. The tofu burger was delicious, you can up the size for 200 yen which I recommend if you think food portions in Japan generally are small.
The homemade bun was really fresh & not dry at all - simply delicious.
If I ever decide to go to Osaka again I’ll definitely head there again!

Delicious food in idiclliic surroundings - Edit

This spot is next door to an art gallery, and the cafe itself is also very nicely decorated. The food was delicious. I have the lunch set which was a great tomato and vegetable curry. It came with a selection of side salads. The tofu burger also looked amazing but it just means I'll have to go backt o try that next time!

Well worth a trip if you're in the north of the town. And if you're heading to Minoo and the waterfalls, it's literally 5mins from Mino station, so hardly a detour!

Pros: Completely vegan menu, Delicious food, English menu available

Must try - Edit

An entirely vegan inexpensive restaurant is a miracle in Osaka. The best place I've been to in Japan. Staff speaks English if you need and are really nice and helpful and there's an English menu as well. The atmosphere was lovely too. Both the food and coffee were delicious. Last food order is 5.30pm. Definitely worth a visit.

My new favourite! - Edit

This is my new favourite place. The food's 100% vegan, delicious, organic and cheap. We had lunch for four including drinks and dessert for all and paid less than 5000 yen in total.

They have 3 lunch set meals: soup with bread and olive oil, a burger and curry. All for 650~750 yen and they fill you up! You can have a small cup of soup with your meal as well.

I don't usually order soup at restaurants because it's so easy to make yourself but the soup here was incredibly good! And I've never had olive oil as tasty as the one they serve here. I think it has to do with the herbs they put in it. The burger was good too, very crisp and not greasy. We went around three o'clock and the last curry sold out right in front of us. It looked very good but beware it sells out apparently! Still, they had 2 out of 3 lunch set options at three in the afternoon so no worries if you're fancying a late lunch.

We had a muffin, cookies and a parfait for dessert with cereal coffee and lassi for drinks. I did not like the lassi so much because it tasted too much like apple vinegar... But I loved the parfait and the cereal coffee!

The owners are very friendly and they were so happy when I gave them the HC stickers it made my day.

Best spot in japan - Edit

From the 4 weeks i had been in Japan, this has got to be the best vegan restaurant i had visited so far. The building is so pretty and inviting, and the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet. Almost reminding me of a distant magical land, i walk in and sit by the windows, the sun shimmering though and toughing my skin. I ordered their recommended Tofu Burger and soup for a modest price and it was pretty good and worth the bucks. They used recycled napkins which is a huge plus!! I would recommend this spot because its outside the outskirts of the bustling Osaka city and around 3km is the Minoo water fall which is a must see

Pros: Lovely Environment , Great and moderately priced food, Friendly staff

Cons: None that comes to mind

A Gem - Edit

This lovely restaurant is the perfect place to stop after walking around Minoh, and they do lunch until 3 if you're having a slow day! My husband and I both ordered the tofu burger and soup set. It was really delicious but too small for us (we were really hungry), so we ordered an extra and found out you can actually order a larger (more western standard) size if you want instead. We also tried the gluten free strawberry cake which I was really impressed by! The hot chocolate was good too. My only complaint is that they didn't have a nice big salad.

An absolute gem!! Must try! - Edit

We found this mostly by accident as we were looking for a place near Mino Waterfall for lunch.

This is one of the best vegan places in Osaka! It can be a bit confusing to find, it is next to a homewares gift shop type place, and there is a gallery above the cafe. It reminded me a lot of small, hipster type cafes in Melbourne (Australia), it looks like a terrace house with a courtyard covered in vines and flowers, wooden furniture and funky decor. There is an English menu.

We had soy french toast, which was light and fluffy. And the tofu burger is simply amazing! It is served in a brichoe type bun and has a yummy sauce.

The prices are very reasonable, and the staff are very friendly (although did not speak much English when we were there - it wasn't really a problem, with gesturing and limited Japanese you should get along just fine!).

I would highly recommend making a trip out to Mino to try this place, and then go for a lovely stroll to the waterfall too!

Pros: Very nice food, Hipster, Melbournian vibe, Friendly staff

Cons: Can be hard to find

Wonderful vegan restaurant - Edit

This was an absolutely lovely vegan restaurant run by two charming ladies. All three of us had the delicious vegan burger and a beer - the burger was delicious and the beer just what we needed after a long walk on a hot day. Highly recommended.

Pros: Super friendly staff, Delicious food, Nice vibe

Delicious in every way - Edit

The staff is super friendly and there is an English menu. Prices are pretty cheap for Japan and the food is amazing. Must try the chickpea curry which is simple and tomato-based but really delicious, as well as the minestrone soup and tofu burger. I came here twice in one day it was so good! Note that they close quite early, at 6, and stop taking orders around 5:30. So come early for dinner

10 out of 10 - Edit

This little cafe tucked away behind the Minoh Station is an absolute gem! Not only is the food spectacular but the interior is exquisite. Their attention to detail in the decoration is amazing. Also I can honestly say that they served me one of the most delicious vegan burgers that I have ever had in my life. The minestrone soup was also lovely! A must try! Loved it!

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

Delicious Vegan Food near Minoh Falls - Edit

What a treat it was to find such a premo cafe after exploring Minoh Park and Falls (a must btw!)

Staff are incredibly friendly and because the whole menu is vegan, there's no need to ask *those* questions.

I had the tofu burger with a small minestrone soup and a chocolate soy milk, all super delicious, fresh and inexpensive. Also grabbed a couple of packets of cookies for later!

Pros: All vegan, Lovely staff, Great atmosphere
