First Review by Yvette Rigby

One happy vegan! - Edit

Heard about this place via a friend. Came two days in a row, once to stock up on vegan slices (the choc brownie is delicious) and the next day for breakfast. I had the vegan smoothie bowl which was huge and tasty. Lots of choice for vegan and gluten free people 😀

Pros: Many vegan options, Healthy , Good location

Benny’s not here - Edit

I tried the Vegan (eggs) Benny here. It was nice enough, if nothing like eggs Benedict, although the fried tofu was just a little bitter. My green protein smoothie was pleasant but my companion’s mac-a-ttack was a little sour for me. The coffee I had there the day before wasn’t very good. Mostly vegan but not much I’d come back for.

Pros: Green smoothie good

Cons: Coffee not good, Tofu a little bitter

Disappointing - Edit

This place was recommended by friends.
I went for breakfast, and had a vegan "egg" benedict.
It looked amazing, the "egg" looked like a perfect replica (why do that, actually?...) but tasted very random / weird... And all the components were very oily, which surprised me, coming from a place that seems to be promoting healthy eating.

I returned quite a few times to Wellington since, but never returned there.

Pros: Nice space, Quite central

Cons: My dish was not tasty and very greasy, The staff was not really friendly

Great place for brunch - Edit

What a great place to have breakfast or brunch! It's worth going just to try the vegan fried or poached eggs, the Vegan Big Breakfast is an absolute must and I highly recommend it. 😊

The food was delicious and gorgeously presented! The cafe is stylish and modern, with an open kitchen and very accommodating staff :) They are great for food allergies, and have a huge variety of vegan options. Emphasis on whole foods and decadent twists on classic dishes

Cons: serves animal products

Fantastic Vegan Options - Edit

I'm so delighted we have such a wonderful café in Wellington. It's so nice to have multiple vegan choices for lunch - they're all delicious. I'm so used to having only one choice at other places. I only wish they were open on the weekend and at night too. My last lunch there was vegan 'spaghetti bolognaise' with tomato sauce - it was gluten free as well. Yum
Well done Seize.

Pros: Excellent food, Clean and vibrant, Great staff

Cons: None

Worth a vist - Edit

Good to see raw juice bars finally catching on in Wellington. Open during the weekdays only - 7-3.30pm. This one is in a good location in the CBD. Nice layout, fresh and clean with a modern look.

Standing room only at lunchtime so if you want a seat get their early - you may have to share a table. Not the cheapest bite, mainly due to portion size, but happy to pay for good quality, fresh food - seem to do organic too which makes it worth it.

Nice selection of dishes, juices and raw deserts. I had the raw vegan burger - $17.00, raw cake $5.00, and a juice forgot the price of that - but not OTT. Portions not huge - probably due to the - healthy = small portions of nutrient rich food - philosophy, so if you want to feel ‘full’ you need to add courses and the price escalates. If you are veggie or vegan this is a place with stuff for you. It seems they are unconfident in Wellington clients ie) they must think people won’t eat there if it is perceived to be ‘veggie’ so they have on their main board, a ‘Add a bit of Decadence’ list which should read ‘Add a bit of death’ to your dish list. Basically, you can buy a lovely, fresh, organic plant based dish then add a variety of different dead animals to it for an added cost so if that’s your thing then you can get it at Seize.

Would I eat there again? Definitely, but not every day. Also there is a dearth of vegan restaurants in this part of Welly so it really is a good option if you are in the CBD.

Pros: Good range of organic, raw vegan food, Nice fresh cafe with seating, Not too overpriced

Cons: Sells meat, Portions are not huge

Lots of yummy healthy options - Edit

Seize is a modern cafe catering to the office crowd. They have a breakfast and lunch menu, a great salad bar and a cabinet of desserts. Menu is mostly vegan and gluten free, with plenty of raw, paleo and other options. I ordered the salad combo ($12.5) and a raw Snickers slice ($5) - yum yum. Already planning my next visit for the waffles with coconut whip and berries!

Pros: mostly vegan, options for all diets, fresh and healthy

Cons: very busy at lunchtime
