33 Victoria St E, Auckland, New Zealand, 1010

Serves meat, vegan options available. Scarecrow is like an urban farmers' market, combined with a cafe/restaurant. Produce is primarily organic, or sourced from spray free suppliers. Food is house-made using ingredients in the grocery store, with an emphasis on Mediterranean basin flavours. Caters for a wide range of dietary requirements, including vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free and paleo. Open Mon 7:00am-5:00pm, Tue-Fri 7:00am-10:00pm, Sat-Sun 8:00am-5:00pm.

Nice hidden vegan-friendly place - Edit

Completely central but not obvious.
I like the decor, wooden, old furniture elements, nice old stylish building.
I went there twice for brunch, and had the same thing because it was really good: vegan tchatchouka (?), spicy tomato stew with potatoes, tempeh, and nice toasted sourdough bread. Yum.
Each time there was quite a lot of vegan options in the cabinet and some beautiful-looking vegan artisan chocolates!

Pros: A lot of great vegan options, Nice place, Organic & artisan produce to buy

Cons: A bit crammed

Well-catered for vegans - Edit

This is quite a popular spot amongst vegans and non-vegans in Auckland CBD. Good venue for a business lunch. Lovely raw and cooked vegan food, chocolates and other goodies on offer. There is also a shop area offering a nice selection of vegan-friendly products. Great vibe, cheerful staff, always busy.

Pros: Good vegan options , Delicious vegan chocolates

Cons: Too busy, lack of tables sometimes

Friendly staff, avg. options - Edit

A cozy restaurant located just across from Albert Park, Scarecrow offers a handful of options for vegans. Fun fact: their current menu erroneously notes the egg shakshuka as being vegan.)

The House Hummus dish is tasty and just enough for two, while the Chickpea Chile Verde combines chickpeas with a delightful spoonful of cashew cream.

Pros: Outdoor seating, Quaint dining experience

Cons: Limited vegan options

Great food. friendly staff. heaps of options - Edit

This isn't your normal cafe with a couple of Vegan options. Depending on which time of day you go you get a bunch of vegan options, well labeled on the menu. The cabinet is filled with vegan chocolates, salad, and other treats. Pricing was fair, the place has really good vibes. Would eat again.

Our go-to for vegan lunch in Auckland CBD - Edit

I think our vegan family of three must have had lunch here at least four times in the last half year when we are visiting Auckland.
Great atmosphere and varied and changing vegan options, excellent food!

Great Salads - Edit

I found this great wee place using the Happy Cow app, whilst doing a self - guided tour of Auckland from my Lonely Planet guidebook. It's situated on a street corner, in a beautiful old building with huge windows.

This isn't a vegetarian or vegan place but there are lots of veggie dishes to choose from. There is a selection of $10 salads, which are on display in the chiller cabinet. I chose one labelled as a cous cous salad although I'm pretty sure the grain was actually quinoa. It also contained various salad leaves, capers, herbs and even some flower petals. I think there was some dandelion in there. Anyway, I thought it was delicious - peppery and flavoursome. Tap water was brought unprompted. I also had a bottle of organic apple and blueberry juice so the final bill came to $15.

One final thing that really deserves a mention - the restroom was really, really nice! It was beautifully decorated, really clean and the soap smelt amazing!

Pros: Lots of veggie options; lovely loo; nice atmospher

Great little place for a meal. Nice atmosphere with vegan options. Check website for hours. I think the hours listed here are wrong.
