First Review by Samslate

good value lunch option - Edit

I had the special which was a half sandwich and a serving of fries. The sandwich was very nice, stuffed full with tofu, black beans, pumpkin and vegetables. The fries were also excellent and they happily swapped out the aioli for homemade ketchup. The bottomless ice tea was good value on a hot day. Was very busy so there was a wee wait on the food which we were warned about in advance. Would visit again.

Pros: big portion, bottomless iced tea, outside seating/buzzing atmosphere

Cons: very busy when we went, only 2-4 vegan options

Filling, fresh & funky - Edit

This groovy little diner has well-indicated vegan options and generous portion sizes. The man serving made us feel welcome and the meals came out quicker than I expected, given the menu said everything is made from scratch. We ordered the vegan sandwich and the vegan hash; both were outstanding. Would definitely go back.

amazing little diner - Edit

I have been here a few times and have always received great service. Having three fully vegan items on the menu as well as a couple that can be veganised is an amazing effort considering many places have nothing at all. The vegan sandwich is tasty and their chips are the best ever! Only downside is that it is very small inside but overall very good!

Pros: vegan options , friendly staff

Cons: no dessert:( but the crêpe place is next door

A lot of meat and little Vegetarian - Edit

Went with some friends here today, il be honest , there is not a lot on the menu that i could eat as a Vegan, i ended up having an orange juice and a bread roll with black beans coleslaw and tofu in it for $24 left me feeling a little underwhelmed. The options are very thin pickings i thought with only, burritos , nachos or bread roll. It was so loud and noisy in there also, the music was too loud and there were only a handful of people in there

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: very limited in options, very loud, very expensive

sundogdiner 06 Aug 2017 - Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit Samslate. It sounds like you got the Vegan-na Party, which would've had our house made black beans, roasted kumara, pomegranate molasses glazed roasted beetroot, organic tofu marinated in our house made enchilada sauce, crispy onion straws and slaw salad with the lime-coriander vinaigrette dressing on our fresh baked Stove-Top Stuffing bread, served with hand cut fries and house-made Bloody Mary ketchup. At $18 plus an orange juice this would've set you back $22, as everything on our menu is $20 or under. We do have other vegan options on the menu that you might prefer like the Priscilla Burrito, the Renegades of Hash or our daily Chili. We have a total of 4 vegan options and 10 vegetarian options available, which is over 1/3 of the menu. Hopefully we'll be able to offer more vegan and vegetarian options in the future. Again, very sorry that you were disappointed and we hope that you will give us another try.
