Shrooms and hash - Edit

Four of us came here for lunch after the Saturday market in Lyttelton. The menu was pretty basic and I shared the Bless Up (hash, beans and shrooms with aioli and salsa, $22) and another dish of hash browns with pesto, guacamole and baba ganoush. The dips were delicious, as were the hash browns, but the proportions were all wrong. There was barely enough hash for me to try all the dips, let alone finish them and there was a lot left over. Did I need to pay for toast to avoid wasting them? The Bless Up was very nice and the vegan aioli had a good flavour and texture. The food I had was generally good but maybe priced a little high. I would come back to try some other items but maybe not make a special trip.

Pros: Nice hash browns, Delicious dips , Vegan aioli good flavour and texture

Cons: Ratio of hash to dips wrong and wasteful, Prices a little high

Eclectic place, lots of vegan options - Edit

I reckon about 50% of the menu is vegan or vegan option. We had buckwheat pancakes and a peace plate (hash and salad) for breakfast. Both really good! Pancakes were a little on the heavy side but still good, huge portion and you don't need syrup thanks for delish coconut vanilla cream (syrup is optional extra but they're sweet enough trust me). Fast and polite service. Cool interior decor. Cabinet foods and smoothies also available. It cost around $40 for food and hot drinks, so price appropriate.

Great Food and Coffee!!!! - Edit

The place has a cool vibe and the food is great. I had an amazing falafel burger last time I was there. The prices are very reasonable and the coffee is great. The only bad thing about it is that it is so busy and popular!

Pros: Great food, Great coffee, Cool vibe

Holla! - Edit

Kickass options for vegans here. I smashed back a dark chocolate and coconut Bounty Bar thick shake with soy ice cream in it and a big thick piece of bread with creamy mushrooms and pesto on top, with a phenomenal hash brown and salsa.
awesome.

Nice Mushies - Edit

While good vegetarian food may be a challenge to find in Christchurch, Shroom Room Cafe in Lyttelton, just a little out of Christchurch is a real vegetarian treat. Admittedly we have only visited once, but the experience was pleasant enough for me to comment. The menu has numerous vegan options, plus gluten free options and they make good use of mushrooms (as you would guess). We ordered the Shroom Room Shrooms with hash browns to share and a couple of coffees. The shrooms came with a lovely pesto and yummy chutney and the hash browns were quite a bit larger than we had expected, and of course the serving of mushrooms was ample and delicious. The meal we ordered was quite massive (so it is lucky that we chose to share this dish), the coffees were okay and the staff were refreshingly happy. The décor consisted of an eclectic mix of 60s and 70s inspired bits and pieces, making it a nice informal breakfast or lunch dining experience (outdoor seating available). If we had some more time in Christchurch we would go back again and try more yummy goodies on their menu!

Pros: Mushrooms!, Lots of vegan & gf options, Happy staff
