First Review by Angst

Nice store to get stocked up - Edit

Popped in here for travel supplies during our road trip on the South Island and found just what we needed:l snacks, organic fruits, local products, artisanal bread, etc. Too bad we already had lunch, otherwise we would've tried out the café as well. Food there looked fresh and good.

Pros: good vegan selection

A delightful place - Edit

Taste nature is a great place to come for lunch or for a snack. Their food is delicious and so wholesome. I have a daughter with many food allergies including gluten, egg and dairy. Taste nature is the only place that has food she can eat. They even have chocolate cake and chocolate biscuits that are gluten free and vegan.
The prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly.

Pros: great food, good value, allergy friendly

Cons: prices in shop alittle high, no GF bread in shop

Nice little shop and cafe - Edit

Those who are looking for highly processed meat substitutes will not find what they are looking for here. Those who are looking for beautiful, healthy, fresh, vibrant wholefoods and a great selection of raw chocolates, raw crackers, raw biscuits, raw cereals, organic tempeh, tofu and patties will be very happy! This is the place to go in Dunedin for crisp & fresh organic fruit and vegetables, as well as organic dried goods, spices, condiments etc. The prices are better than the Wellington equivalent (Commonsense organics) and the staff are friendly & helpful. They also have lots of seeds and organic gardening books on sale.

I went to the newly opened cafe, which has a lovely atmosphere and great surroundings. I tried the vegan chickpea and tomato soup with bread. The bread was delicious, the soup was hearty and warm but could have used a bit more seasoning & bigger bowls as the serving sizes left me still hungry. I saw that they had a vegan ginger crunch and a selection of salads, I am looking forward to trying these next time I visit. Prices slightly higher than the typical cafe, but everything is organic and made with wholefoods so it is worth paying for.

Pros: vegan options, good selection, nice atmosphere

Cons: small portions, a bit pricy

Organic Heaven - Edit

Taste Nature have really stepped it up with the new store. Lots of beautiful produce with many options for vegos and vegans. Lovely lunches and happy staff.

Pros: Fresh and delicious, Well priced, Looks great

Cons: I wasn't hungry enough

Not especially vegan friendly - Edit

I visited this shop in July 09 hoping to find lots of lovely vegan 'alternatives'. Unfortunately the only 'meat' analogues were dried TVP and frozen tempeh (no vegan sosages or burgers etc). They do stock nuts & seeds and some vegan chocolate & snack bars though. But it's not like a UK whole/health food shop. They sell mostly organic fruit and veg and have a freezer full of organic meat.

Pros: TVP & tempeh stocked, one frozen vegan soup available

Cons: few meat analogues, lots of meat
