a lovely oasis - Edit

...this was a lovely oasis for me to find - thanks to Happy Cow. Delicious foods, an absolutely lovely vibe and really friendly folks! Also super nice that it's run as a cooperative. I highly recommend :) :)

Falafel in Crete - Edit

Nice little place in the center of Heraklion. If you are vegan you can tell the staff and they will be glad to prepare a vegan falafel for you. The falafel was good. They have a few tables outside. The cats will try to get something out of you but your vegan falafel might disappoint them.

Pros: Central, Good price, Friendly staff

Cons: They don't have vegan desserts.

Cute little place - Edit

Cute little place with lots of vegan options. I tried the falafel without the pita (gluten sensitivity) with aubergine salad, beet salad, potato salad and humus! Delicious and filling! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Pros: take-away, friendly staff, perfect for a quick healthy meal

Nice falafel wraps - Edit

We had two wraps with different salads and sauces and home-made lemonade. Both very tasty. Reasonably priced products. Medium portion costs £4 so it is a good eatery if one has a tighter holiday budget.
Staff speaks English and explain what you can order.

Pros: cheap, English

Nice food, Nice people - Edit

After a few days in Heraklion we really wanted to find a place with healthy food. Via Happycow we found The Chickpea and were very happy with this place. The people are very friendly and the food is really nice! Keep up the good work!

Great place! - Edit

Much needed place in Heraklion for vegans and vegetarians, serves mostly falafel but also has other options. Good prices and good atmosphere, excellent staff. I wish it was at least vegetarian!

Pros: Great vegan options, Reasonable prices
