perfect experience - Edit

Great tasting food, good portion size and all vegan! Just 2 minutes walk from central station, this cute cafe is tucked away, so can be a little tricky to find at first.
I had an excellent experience trying their sandwiches and deserts. Will definitely visit again!

Pros: good variety, tasty sandwiches, all vegan!

Shift eatery - Edit

This place opened last week. This amazing place was really rocking, many diners has limited out side seating.
I had a berry nice smoothie had raspberries, strawberries, vanilla, almond milk and coyo. $10.
For eats had Big Bad Bowl w/ quinoa, roasted veggies, smoked beans, house made kale slaw, sauerkraut and hommos. $18.it was deeeelicious.
The eatery serves a variety of salads, toasted sandwiches with various fillings.
They make their own cheeses, vegan bacon and a first for me vegan EGG.
Serves coffees and teas.
Got the Happy Cow sticker. Vegans please try at least once you wont be disappointed.
Revisited today was knocked out by the service and food. Had a smoked tofu and miso salad came with greens, cabbage, kale, carrot, cherry tomatoe, cucumber, sprouts, sesame seeds topped with a miso and ginger dressing. Delicious $14. My berry nice smoothie had raspberries, strawberries, chia seeds, almond milk and coconut water. $10. Their raw cheese was to die for $9. Got a double Happy Cow sticker. Please vegans and ppl moving to a plant based diet try this once, twice or thrice.
Revisited with my partner. We had salad bowl with mixed lettuce, roasted chick peas with masala, pumpkin, rice/quinoa, cherry tomatoes, coriander and coconut yoghurt.
Gimme dat protein banana, peanut, cacao/ coconut milk. Hot cacao soy mylk. Fig, apple, and walnut tart. All was delicious, in my top 5 best vegan eatery. Bill $36.
Vegans and vegheads get here u must try once, twice.

Really yummy food - Edit

I ate here 3 times during my 2 week holiday in Sydney. Lovely food and good service. I really enjoyed the big bad bowl and my husband and friends sampled quite a few of the toasted sandwiches and other bowls which all looked really good too.
I would say that Shift Eatery, Bodhi and Earth to Table are the 3 nicest vegan restaurants in Sydney.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly service

Cons: Small, can get very busy so you need to wait.

Super impressed - Edit

Shift Eatery was a major surprise! We visited this sweet little cafe/grocer a few months ago and really enjoyed the delicious tasty vegan food and even returned to buy some groceries! We absolutely loved the overall modern style of the cafe & were surprised at how tasty the food was. I chose one of the toasters with melty vegan cheese while my husband chose the Big Bad Bowl. This place is insta worthy! We left feeling nourished and extremely satisfied.

Pros: Lots of delicious food options, Tasty treats are offered as well

So great - Edit

The staff were so welcoming and friendly and the food and drink options were awesome. I’d say I had the best toastie I’ve ever eaten at a vegan cafe. So good! Highly recommend

Super delicious Vegan food - Edit

I've eaten inside and outside. Even though it's centrally located in busy Surrey Hills, it feels like a little oasis away from the crowd...although it has it's own crowd. A very popular cafe due to many amazing choices, all too good to pass up. Be prepared for several visits so you can try everything haha.

Pros: Great location, clean cafe and friendly staff, Delicious Vegan food - a must try., Offering 3 great discounts with My vegan Vouchers

Absolutely delicious - Edit

I went to this place every week for two month after they opened: everything I tried was top notch deliciousness.
The mushroom cheese toastie is my favorite (the kale pesto makes it so tasty), while my partner has a crush on Steve (Reuben's brother) which fills him up really well.
The brekky bun is great, and as big as a burger.
I also love their smoothies and their cakes (lemon tart is to die for) as well as the nuttie doughnuts.
Special mention for the dirty chai, with macadamia milk, the best I've ever had.

Service is very nice too, even when they're swamped with people (people line up at lunch time for a table).

Pros: Tasty menu and dishes originality, Very good coffee, dirty chai + has macadamia milk, Delicious sweet treats

Cons: Already too small to accommodate all clients, Nicer outside of lunch hours, quieter, The outdoor sitting area could use some shade

The rave reviews don't lie! - Edit

Tucked down a side street in Surry Hills in a very unassuming way, Shift Eatery is a wonderful surprise. Kind, friendly, upbeat and helpful staff, a good selection of all vegan dishes and mouthwatering tastes. A great addition to the growing selection of vegan breakfast hangouts but a pretty good choice for lunching too. To trump it all, cold and freezer cabinets with a good range of vegan products to take home.

AMAZING sandwiches!! - Edit

I am always returning to Shift Eatery whenever I can because of how simple yet amazing their sandwiches are. My favourites are the Shroom Toastie and all of their jackfruit sandwiches. The servings aren't too small either, i'm usually very comfortably full after finishing. Their drink range is also great as well as the amazing vegan desserts. They also have an amazing deli full of vegan ingredients such as cheese, ice cream, spreads. Be sure to bring a cooler bag if you want to transport any goodies home!

Pros: amazing vegan sandwiches, amazing desserts, very friendly staff

Contentment - Edit

Shift Eatery has inspired me to open a vegan cafe / deli in Melbourne, as we are missing this in the southern suburbs. I absolutely loved this place. So many choice but opted for smashed avocado as usual... with cream cheese and kale pesto. So tasty and fresh. I sat and ate, drank the berry smoothie and a coffee and contemplated how many more things I could try in one sitting - blissful.
