First Review by Nancy Cadet

One of my favorite places in Kyoto - Edit

I love the river view at this place and the food is consistently good. On my last visit I had the panini plate and it was amazing- tasted just like any other panini, but totally vegan. It had vegetables in it, not cheese. It is so rare to find vegan panini in Japan.

It also came with homemade pickles, salad, sweet potato, and soup. Everything was great. The soup was scaldingly hot.

I went late and they were sold out of all the desserts but one, and the coffee machine was broken so they could not heat soy milk for coffee. But just the food itself was so good. I always recommend this place.

You can walk there easily from Kyoto station as it is only around 850 meters away, or take the subway.

Pros: Great view, Good location, Food is consistently good

Cons: Might sell out of things if you go late

very good - Edit

I tried the banzai lunch special and i have to say it’s delicious. It has a variety of different foods some of different origins and it was very good. If you’re coming for lunch try to make it before 3pm otherwise you won’t be able to get the lunch

Beautiful Fine Dining - Edit

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff with great English. I recommend the carbonara pasta, I’m not a pasta fan but it is SO Devine! The hot wine is also delicious and comforting if you’re visiting in the winter. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a fancy dinner date location. It’s a little expensive but you get what you pay for - good quality organic meals etc.

Pros: great food , atmosphere , hot wine!

Good vibe, great food! - Edit

Went there today for dinner. Fantastic river view and we managed to catch the sun set over the water. This place has a lively vibe and staff are really friendly. They have an English menu and offer a variety of choices.

We ordered the tofu carbonara and the green curry risotto. The pasta came with an extremely rich and creamy sauce which I loved. We also ordered their chocolate "cheese"cake (raw vegan) and coconut muffin with choc chips for dessert. The raw cake was heavenly with a rich cholocate flavour. Would go back if I have time!

A great place - Edit

The place is really nice and pretty. I enjoyed the food but it was too spicy for my liking and there wasn’t a lot of options. They also sell interesting snacks there but they’re a bit pricey, though it’s still a nice place!

Cons: spicy, if you’re not a fan of spicy food

Refined cafe - Edit

This was a lovely minimal style cafe that’s all vegan. I went for breakfast and had their toast special, which was delicious. Their coffee is very good and they offer hand drip. The prices were expensive but it was quality and had a great view.

Pros: delicious, open for breakfast

Cons: expensive, small portions

Not a favorite - Edit

I wouldn't call this place bad, but I can't recommend it either. My dish was not very interesting. Also, while the restaurant claims to have cafe hours until 6pm and serve dinner after that time, arriving at 5:30 means you have to wait outside until they are ready to take dinner orders. At least the service was quick!

TOURIST TRAP - Edit

Total disappointment! This place is utterly a tourist trap. The prices are insane and portions are tiny. Plus the food is very average. I would give it 0 stars if I could. Tiny glass of juice from bottle $6! Took 35 minutes to get starter!

Cons: Poor quality food, Expensive, Small portions

Nice place, lame menu - Edit

Dropped in for breakfast.

I was underwhelmed by the breakfast menu with only a few simple options. Toast, a veg panino and a couple of yoghurt bowls.

I orders the panino (disappointing) and the acai bowl. The acai bowl was really poor - not enough fruit and hardly any granola.

I was also disappointed by the service which was very slow indeed.

I'm sorry to say, I can't recommend this place because the food is well below par.

very tasty food, lovely staff - Edit

We had diners every night at that restaurant that was just next to our hotel. Fresh food and extremely tasty. Loved it! Only downside was that it was no gluten free options except from rice and salads. They had really tasty vegan burgers and muffins but they had gluten.

Delicious - Edit

The restaurant was top notch, cosy and had a perfect location by the river. The food was amazing! We tried two of the three dinner plates, nr 1 and 3 if I'm not mistaken. I'm already looking forwars to try the last one! The appraisers were also good, the potato was a bit to salty, but the fried tofu (I think) was tasty.

Pros: they really put their soul in the food, and you ca

Cons: Bit pricey, but totally worth it if you are lookin

Lovely cafe overlooking the Kamogawa River but overpriced dinner menu - Edit

Veg Out is situated at a very convenient location overlooking the beautiful Kamogawa River with an airy , bright space which is a great place to relax and work. The lunch plates are decorated beautifully and taste clean yet fairly delicious. I also like the vegan taco rice which is filled with lots of fresh vegetables and a tasty taco sauce. However, one of the problems I have with Veg Out is that the dinner menu is overpriced for what you get. The vegan steak for example is just a small piece of vegan patty that is priced at a whopping 1500 yen with no rice or accompanying salad. The fried rice is also measly and oily with under-seasoned tempeh even though you pay more than 1000 yen for it. The desserts are hit or miss, although the cheesecake and some of the muffins are nice. I heard that the raw cakes and carbonara are quite good. Overall I would recommend this place for lunch or a light meal in the day if you are in the area near Kyoto Station.

Pros: Bright and beautiful space, Good place to chill and work, Some good dishes

Cons: Overpriced dinner menu with small portions, Inconsistent food quality

nice atmosphere, close to the centre, nice view - Edit

We went to Veg Out on our first night in Kyoto and enjoyed the view and atmosphere. We ordered the platter and had not realised that it would be cold. This was a bit of a disappointment but had we gone again we would've ordered something else. They were also not open on another occasion when their opening times suggested that they would be.

Beautiful location, yummy food - Edit

We got here a bit early for dinner/too late for lunch, so we didn't have much option here because of timing unfortunately, however the taco rice was yum and the view over the river was really beautiful. Would love to come back here again for lunch or dinner.

The Maya nut drink was really nice too

Nice location! - Edit

We just sat down to take a break and this was a really cost cafe by the river. It's a bit pricy, but the cheesecake we took was totally worth the money.

Delicious - Edit

This was the best vegan food I have had in Japan so far. I got the big buddha bowl and it was really good! Some herb tea with it and I was full. Worth the money I would say.
