Lovely cafe - Edit

Visited for lunch and it was delicious. We had the burger and nourish bowl. Luckily it wasn’t too busy so we got a table so it would be ideal if there was more room but in saying that the atmosphere was nice and cozy. Great meal sizes. Great coffee. We’ll be back.

Cute & Quirky Cafe - Edit

I've been here a few times now. I've always had a good experience here. Happy to see the amount of vegan friendly foods. Very accommodating staff. Would love to see some more nut free options for vegans though. Unfortunately there are only a handful of vegan items that are nut free. Owner was very friendly and happy to have a chat.

Pros: A decent selection of vegan products both sweet an, Friendly & accommodating staff, Owner is lovely and happy to have a chat when it's

Cons: Not a lot of room to move , Not many nut free vegan options , Gets a bit warm inside on hot days

More vegan options please - Edit

This vegetarian cafe knows how to make quality food, but I don't think they've realised that vegetarians can eat vegan food but not the other way around. Five great looking, dairy free muffins available...all five contain egg.

There are a few appealing vegan options on the menu; I chose the arancini balls with potato salad which was a generous serving for the price and enjoyable.

Pros: Some vegan options

Cons: Not all vegan

great vegan options with an enthusiastic owner - Edit

We go here probably once a month and there are many vegan options including many options on the menu which can be altered to be vegan. The owner (?) is very passionate about vegan options and also makes some beautiful raw desserts, some of the best I've ever had. Definitely recommend this place!

Not a great range of vegan options - Edit

The first thing that struck me about this place was that there weren't that many vegan options on the menu: the burger, the crumpets and the vegan breakfast, out of about ten items. What makes it worse is that most of the dishes could easily be made vegan: the corn fritter (containing egg), the marinated mushrooms (feta) and even the quinoa salad wasn't vegan. This made it easy to decide on the burger for lunch. Unfortunately, this was also disappointing. The burger had little flavour, was mushy - I'm not sure what it was made of - and was accompanied by a beetroot chutney too sweet for my taste. There is not much here for vegans and I'd say this place has to lift its game in that respect.

Pros: Nice location in Belgrave

Cons: Relatively small number of vegan options, Mediocre vege burger
