Favorite lunch place in Belgium! - Edit

VegaVerso is one of my favorite places in Belgium. It's cozy, the two women that own the place are some of the loveliest people I've ever met and their food is tha bomb!
VegaVerso serves sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, salads, soup, freakshakes, pies, donuts, cupcakes, ... you name it. Everything is fresh and you can taste it. I especially like their sandwiches and the cherry pie (it's sugar free, but the best I've ever had). Oh, they also have special coffees with cookies and such, which you have to try!
The only negative thing that I can say about it, is that sometimes there's a bit much sauce on the burgers or hotdogs. Some people like that of course, but for me it's a bit much. And their opening hours are not always ideal. But that being said, I make the time to visit them, enjoy their great food and their friendly faces :-)

Pros: great & fresh food, lots of options, super friendly

Cons: opening hours

In love! - Edit

This was the best place we ve been while in Leuven. The two ladies that own the place are really friendly and I loved the fact that they are ethical vegans and have quotes everywhere about animal rights but also human rights. The food was really tasty, but it was a bit difficult for us to understand the menu, since its only in Dutch, and even if we speak english and french we didnt have another option than to order without really understanding what we will get. The experience was so good that we really didnt care about the menu, and loved everything we ate. Big portions and made with love

Pros: Ethical vegans, Tasty, Friendly

Cons: Not english (or french) menu, Opening hours

Nice vegan place. - Edit

It is very difficult to say whether it is teahouse, restaurant, fast food... since it has a bit of everything.

It's a nice place, nice location and lovely staff.

The food is all vegan, so it's nice you do not have to worry about that, since they are pretty specialized in making things getting pretty close to what people are used to eat as non-vegan in for example a fast food.

They have some very lovely desserts here as well.

It is an amazing experience to taste what they are capable of making being all vegan.

Now the alternatives planned based foods of something that people used to know differently, are not really my kind of thing, now I really enjoyed the experience and tasting it.

I go there to show people the possibility and also with the kids to provide them the alternative experience.

Nice place, especially for coffee/dessert in the afternoon, the only real struggle for us are the opening hours.
They are so variable; change last minute, closed when they said would be open, they are open now can't serve you anymore because they will close soon... making it for us very hard to be able to make it, the kids get very disappointed and resulting in us stopping to go there.

Amazing food, great bang for buck - Edit

My favorite food in Leuven. There are a million options in this vegan "sandwich" restaurant but i often get the same one - the gyro sandwich on rye bread. My fave. they also do yummy burgers, and their dessert options are different every day - to include gluten-free, maybe even sugar free options. DO check opening hours, then go to their FB page to double-check if they are open on that day as they are more closed than open.

Pros: tasty food, big portions, great location

Cons: often closed

A little vegan gem in Leuven - Edit

Very nice interior and an outdoor seating area. The staff consists of two lovely ladies that prepare the meals fresh right in front of you. The amount of meals on offer is astounding. There's burgers with mock chicken, beef, fish, hot dogs, ice cream, cakes.. We tried a hot dog, chicken burger and a classic burger and all were amazing! Prepared in a very short time, considering how crowded the place was during the lunch time, and the portions were massive. Last but not least the price was low for what you get. It's a must go if you happen to be in the area.

Pros: Lots of vegan burgers, hot dogs, cakes, ice cream, Friendly staff, Cheap

Cons: Gets crowded during the lunch time

Burger Splendour - Edit

VegaVerso has a plethora of different burgers, wraps, and salads on offer that are prepared freshly and in plain sight after you place your order.
I don't know what I expected of my "Chick'n'Curry Burger", but certainly not what I got: a huge mountain stuffed with loads of veggies! They certainly didn't apply their toppings sparingly. I couldn't have been more delighted.
The curry sauce was a bit too salty for my taste, but hey, personal preferences differ. ;)

Pros: loads of different options

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

Vegan pain au chocolat and croissants on Saturdays!

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
