Amazing food and home'y feel! - Edit

I've had there the best salad I ever ate with cashew balls (cheeze salad) and my friend was also over the moon with her burger! The girl and her mom working there were very nice and the prices were very good especially considering the amazing quality.
It's a perfect place for eating out on a normal day or a special occasion.

Recommended, we love going here - Edit

We've been here a couple of times over the years, and we will surely visit again.
All vegan place.
Tilly and her mom are very friendly, great variety of dishes and vegan pastry and cakes. You can finetune your own burger (type of bread, sauce, ..). (but unfortuntely no burger bun, that would be my own minor point, maybe that can still be added to the bread options?)
It's not a fancy restaurant, but more a sandwich bar style place (you order at counter, and then food is brough to your table). Also take-away.
Cosy atmosphere, great place to sit back and relax.

several reviews of Vegaverso on my blog. 3rd one is here:

Pros: all vegan, great variety of dishes, very friendly, nice atmosphere

TillyVanA 13 Aug 2016 - Thank you for your kind review :-)
My mother and I prefer to work without extra staff , so we can keep our prices low and control the quality of everything we serve. Our motto ( as you can read on our window) is: We don't serve fast food, we serve slow food made with love :-)

Very grateful for so much choice - Edit

Normally when you go to a sandwich or snack bar you have a few options. I feel overwhelmed every time I go to VegaVerso: what a lot of choice! I wonder how they do it. There are a lot of interesting combinations. I appreciate that it's all about 'taste' (and not per se health) in this place.
The 'beefy' burger is not my thing, a bit chewy, maybe it resembles meat too much.
Sometimes they put too many salty ingredients or sauce on.
And the last time I went, there was an odd sour taste to the peanut sauce.
But all by all: I still like to go back every time I go shopping, there are still a hundred things I need to try out.

Pros: Choice, Friendly, Good combinations

Cons: A lot of sauce, Can be quite salty

Good place to lunch - Edit

Great service, very friendly and talkative owners, which I like because I like to socialise. Relaxing atmosphere and not to expensive prices. I always leave with a smile on my face after eating there.

Vegan + delicious + cheap = perfection - Edit

Vegan pain au chocolat and croissants on Saturdays!
I think it's cheapest vegan place in Leuven and the food is GREAT.
Big tasty and healthy vegan sandwiches with lots of protein for a small price.
Very friendly staff. No one's offended if you don't order drinks with your meal (a real plus in Belgium).

Pros: Vegan pain au chocolat!!!, Food is cheap AND great, Very friendly staff

Cons: Vegan pain au chocolat only on Saturdays

Tasty! - Edit

The first time I went to the VegaVerso, I was already stuffed from another vegan restaurant in Leuven. So there was only room for desserts.

And they were gooooood! Different tastes of vegan ice cream, chocolat sauce, chocolat nibs, cookies,... It was pure heaven.

I went back on a later time and had some of the main dishes. They were tasty as well, although I learned I'm less less of a faux-meat lover. Give me seitan an tempeh any day, but the newer creations out there taste somewhat too meaty for my palate.

Conclusion: great food, lot's of choices (desserts!) and friendly people at the counter.

Pros: Great desserts, Tasty desserts!, Yummy desserts!!

Cute vegan cafe - Edit

I loved the cute vegan wall of quotes and pictures in this place, though it could come across a little cheezy at times (see what I did there)
The atmosphere was amazing only to be topped by the outstanding selection of sandwiches and other cafe-style food. I highly recommend going for the 'special' hot chocolate if you have a chance to visit (it's a sort of make your-own hot chocolate kit with some cake) They also let you pick the type of milk you want in it (soy/almond/rice)
Run by a lovely mother and daughter team.

Pros: Great food, atmosphere, Better options than most omni cafes

fantastic sandwiches and very pleasant atmosphere - Edit

As someone previously wrote here they do have a fantastic and very creative selection of vegan sandwich spreads and combinations. They start at €3.50 with the cheese and veganaise. I had the curry seitan one with extra rucola (several other extras and 5 types of bread available) for around €5. It was big, fresh, delicious and very filling. Besides that there are several cakes and pastries on offer such as for example brownies, croissants, cup cakes, pralines (€2-€4 price range) and also a couple burgers and tapas options. Friendly, family like atmosphere, tasty food and lovely interiors that invite to relax and enjoy your food. There's also a mini shop inside and several vegan related books to read. Loved it.

Pros: friendly and pleasant vibe, awesome sandwich combinations , not expensive

Love this place! - Edit

I was thrilled to find this gorgeous cafe when on holiday in Leuven. The food is an absolute delight to the eyes and the tastebuds. I came back three times in 5 days and loved everything I tried and the cupcakes are so gorgeous I took some home for the family. The place itself is cosy and beautifully decorated and all the menus have unique hand-made embroidered covers. To top it all, the staff were so helpful and friendly and totally forgiving of the fact that I didn't speak Dutch (the menus are written in several languages including English). Can't wait to go back there.

Pros: Everything

Cons: There are no cons

Disappointing - Edit

I have given this place 4 chances
First - an oreo muffing - Real good!
Second - bite back sandwich - Way too spicy even for spicy loving people.
Third - Indian sandwich - not a nice taste. Too big pieces with a very strange texture
Fourth - "chicken curry" - taste okay, not good.I really felt sick afterwards.

Very sad. We were so happy with a vegan sandwich bar in Leuven. But we're just going to come back for pies.

Pros: Oreo Muffin, Friendly, Nice interior

Cons: taste is not good, too spicy sometimes, opening hours are not good for me

Tilly vegaverso 03 Oct 2014 - Dear Jolien, too bad you didn't say anything when you where dissapointed WHILE you were here.If you thought the Bite Back sandwich was too spicy ( although we've been asked to add more chili by some people- tastes do differ apparently) we gladly would have made you a less spicier one.Our Indian sandwich is one of the most popular ones ,and we even have customers that come back for it several times a week :-) again..I guess tastes can differ a lot ....As for the SEITAN curry ....maybe you have a problem with gluten? Because we can assure you , everything is made fresh on a daily basis. Please next time you visit do not hesitate to speak up and voice your complaints while we still have a fair chance to offer a solution...seems way more fair than this bad review ( wich is the first one , next to a lot of compliments we get ;-) but still...we would have liked to make you a happy customer too )

Great sandwiches, amazing cakes. - Edit

We visited this place 4 times in two day trips to Leuven – two lunches and two “how about a coffee and cake before we get the train?” excuses to go back. It does two things, but does them innovatively and very well. It serves a huge and tempting range of toppings on a selection of breads and then serves a selection of excellent cream cakes and cup cakes. In terms of savoury food, there’s a choice of a(very big) baguette (my favourite), less exciting flat spelt bread and a couple of others. With those you choose from about 15 (from memory) cold toppings ranging from relatively obvious but tasty things like “mexican” “indian” to unusual like a vegan scrambled egg version with tofu and kala namak (great) and a gyros one (interesting, though perhaps a fraction over salty). It only opened within the fortnight of our visit, but was already obviously known to the locals in this trendy and pretty university city, and was clean and smart, and a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Menus were only in Flemish (cue a bit of looking up ingredients) but I guess that might change shortly and everything is vegan anyway so you can afford to roll the dice. And then the cakes: cup cakes, excellent, but the Tompoes – out of this world. Apparently it’s a Flemish/Dutch speciality but not one that I assume has previously been vegan-accessible, not to me anyway. If you don’t know what a Tompoes is, look it up, and you will see why the vegan world is now a better place.

Pros: Unusual food, Cream Cakes!, Nice premises

Cons: None

Tilly vegaverso 19 Sep 2014 - thank you ! We do have English menus now ;-) we hope you will visit again one day because next to the vegan tompoes, in a few days we will also sell vegan 'neuzekes'. They are a yummie Belgian candy speciality too and very hard to find in the vegan version :-)
