Delicious food!

We ordered the big breakfast and blueberry cheesecake. They were very delicious. The blueberry cheesecake could use a little zest but it was still really good! The big breakfast was so yummy and filling. I normally hate tomatoes but they cooked them perfectly. Will definitely be coming back!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Cute place , Delicious food

Cons: A little far from where we live, Closes early

Cute spot

Love this cute little spot in a cute little town. We’ve been to Sweet Meadow before when we were travelling through. I found my food to be a bit tasteless and I like my smashed avo a bit chunky not whipped (that’s probably just me) but it was still good enough. The service was excellent, the whole vibe of the place was so nice.
We ordered the big breakfast, the pumpkin toasty, almond chai’s and a couple of the carrot cake cupcakes 🧁 out of all of the food, I loved the cupcakes 🤤🧁♥️

Pros: Great menu , Excellent service, Great vibe

Cons: Serves egg

Cute cafe!

It was so refreshing to find a plant based cafe in a country town! We made a quick stop for breakfast and I had the açai smoothie bowl which was delicious and filling! They also sold a great range of vegan chocolates and treats.

Pros: Vegan options, Friendly staff, Vegan treats and pantry staples

Loved it

Always a must visit when I am in the area, food is always amazing and inspired, service friendly and great treats! Everything is made to order, take a bit of time, especially when busy, but I don’t mind to wait a bit to get such great food

A Thoughtful, Vegan Cafe

I was happy to see one place around the area that had a plant-based menu. The cafe itself is easy to spot and is on a main road, with outdoor and indoor seating. We sat outdoors as we had our dogs with us - they have a little doggy water bowl out the front and blankies for when you're cold. There are lots of options on the menu, and the food is really nice, well-thought and moreish, even to someone who isn't vegan. Too bad, we live hours away! Otherwise, this would definitely be a place to dine at regularly.

Pros: Full plant-based menu - tasty, too, City centre location, Very tidy

One of the best meals ever in a surprising location!

Found this place by chance while passing through the area and the gnocchi was incredible, as were the corn fritters. Worth a visit if you ever get the chance!!! The mint chock chip smoothie was heavenly too 😍

Pros: Outback vegan legends , Amazing food , Beautiful area of Victoria

Cruelty Free Food

So good to find a place you know you can order anything from the menu and know it’s cruelty free.
We had the gnocchi, toastie and a couple of smoothies. All were enjoyed. Would definitely come back again.

Pros: Vegan!!, Tasty!!

Delicious lunch, wonderful staff!

The staff are so lovely and the atmosphere wonderful - you can eat outside or inside and take away too. 5 years she has been running and going from strength to strength. The owner mentioned she was thinking of opening Friday nights and I hope she does! I had coffee, thyme mushrooms and wilted greens and a blueberry muffin with my cappuccino! Wish I was hungrier because the menu is filled with delights!

Pros: Great menu, Friendly service, Lovely seating areas and pretty restaurant

Cons: Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. , Closes at 2pm

Fabulous Restaurant

I found this place on HappyCow, read the reviews and sought it out and was so grateful that I did… It was as good as everyone said … and I had a beautiful Jackfruit Taco dish with soy coffee as my reward 😀

Delicious smoothies

Didn't try any of the food myself, but had the mint chip smoothie and it was delicious! So good that I even tried to come back the next day, but unfortunately it was closed (so keep an eye on the opening hours).

Echuca surprise

Highly impressed by the quality of the meals in this unlikely country town cafe. it is totally vegan, & has been going for about five years, in the heart of Echuca. The food is excellent, & the staff are friendly & knowledgable. We are very happy that we made a long detour just to go there.

A vegan sanctuary

We made three visits here while in Echuca. The cafe contrasts strongly with other eateries in town, which tend toward the clueless where vegan is concerned. I had the big breakfast ($23), not the hugest I’ve ever eaten but everything was in order, although the avocado was a bit more ‘puréed’ than I’m used to. We also shared the corn fritters ($16), which unfortunately were pretty doughy. The cauliflower schnitzel burger ($19) had an interesting texture, the schnitzel a bit crumbly, not that substantial. The mushroom toastie ($13) was delicious, with the pesto a highlight. Drinks-wise the green smoothie ($9) was a bit on the banana-ey side and the Strawberry Kisses ($9) was nice and creamy, just sweet enough. The owner (I think) was really attentive and thoughtful, remembering details and even splitting our creamy scramble ($20) between two plates when I casually mentioned we were sharing. So good this place is here.

Delicious Brunch Spot

Loved The Sweet Meadow!

Visited with an omni family and all but one loved their food. A note for sweet tooths - the choc pancakes weren't sweet enough for one of the young folk, but they was more than sweet enough for the rest of us!

Really interesting and appetising menu, really interesting options.

The juices were out of this world.

So happy we could support this place. I'd've gone every day if it was open!

Such an incredible place & an awesome menu. I love it here. We stayed in Echuca overnight and went here for brunch both days. Yummmmo!!

Pros: All vegan!!, Meals and smoothies were all perfectly delicious

Cons: Vegan brekkie should have tofu scramble included, The donuts are not donuts & don't taste good.
