Cosy environment, great food

A really nice atmosphere, great for coffee & cake or lunch. We had coffees & then a Buddha bowl & wrap. All delicious. The staff member generously warmed some of the Buddha bowl salad for me & served with extra bread.
Looking forward to going back to try more of the menu!

Pros: Nice vibe, sofa seat by the window , Super friendly & flexible staff , Outdoor seating

Cons: I can't think of anything negative

Welcoming place where we greatly enjoyed our lunch: delicious mushroom soup, bowl with all colours veg and falafel and super tasty shoarma plate. First class hot chocolate and cofee with homemade fruit cake. It was the best place we visited in 3 weeks holidays in South England.

Pros: Friendly staff, Delicious food, Relaxed seating

Not a good experience

Only some of the order came for one of the party and we were left to wait for the rest , whilst others who came afterwards ordered and served. Eventually the staff member serving said they didn’t have the ingredients and weren’t making it. So after an hour we paid for what we had and left, so our planned nice lunch out was a disaster. Communication needs improving and telling customers they aren’t going to get their meals rather than leaving them waiting is the minimum.

Pros: It’s vegan

Cons: Communication poor, Food not made and left waiting

Best place for vegan food in Dorchester

Lovely atmosphere and tasty food - one of the best places in Dorchester for vegan treats, light meals and delicious drinks. I personally love the vegan strawberry milkshake with Swedish glace ice cream and oat milk! 🌿

Pros: Lovely atmosphere, Wide selection of drinks and cakes, Supports local artists

Perfect lunch stop

Really good cafe with everything you’d expect from a mainly plant based place (they offer dairy milk). Great range of dishes, good prices and nice atmosphere.
I had Twisted Shrimp - my partner had a Buddha Bowl and both were excellent.

Excellent Vegan Lunch

I had the toasted falafel wrap. It was freshly prepared and it tasted delicious. It even tasted toasted too, so very unusual. The pricing was average, and the service was very good. A nice, small, homely restaurant. Clean too.

Vegetarian place, but only because they have milk for their hot drinks. All food is vegan, they have lots of plant milk. We stumbled across this place on a day out and we're really glad we did.

Pros: All food vegan, Delicious

Good Vibes

Great food and a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. An interesting menu with vegan mac & cheese, various wraps, mushroom "ribs", burger, buddha bowl.

We had a jackfruit wrap which was a lovely cheesy bbq indulgence and a pesto wrap, which was crunchy and fresh. Also came with good side salad with excellent creamy vegan coleslaw.

We also had mac and cheese and wedges to share which were both fab.

The dog was made welcome with water and treats available.

They had an interesting variety of hot drinks like turmeric or beetroot lattes and milkshakes. Also a tempting selection of cakes, although we didn't try these this time.

Pros: Lots of good vegan options, Very tasty food, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Portions weren't huge, but were good quality

All good vegan-friendly, but dairy for drinks…

Vibes is the only vegetarian cafe in Dorchester and they have converted their food menu to be fully vegan-friendly. But - they still serve dairy with hot drinks, although milkshakes are vegan by default.

Lovely people, nice airy space with outdoor seating, and tasty selection including breakfast and lunch savouries, cakes, hot drinks and milkshakes.

Hoping they will take the final step to being fully vegan, although I guess there is a fear of alienating some customers in a fairly small town. It would be great to see them as a vegan beacon in Dorchester and this part of Dorset!

Pros: All good vegan, Lovely people , Airy space

Cons: Serve dairy with hot drinks

Excellent Find!

We happened to stumble upon this lovely vegan café whilst visiting the area and were not disappointed! The vegan curry was outstanding and our little one enjoyed his Buddha bowl and fresh milkshake. Our waitress was polite, friendly and very helpful in answering our many questions about the food! Nice relaxed, family-friendly vibe. We’ll certainly be back if we visit the area again!

Pros: Tasty, well-seasoned food, Accommodating to dietary requirements , Happy, smiley service

Super tasty

Great to find vegan food for lunch that is both tasty and hearty. My jackfruit wrap was a joy as was my wife’s Buddha bowl, and neither of us needed more than a snack later that evening! Lemon drizzle cake perhaps a tad dry but coffee was excellent. We’ll be back!
