Perfect for veggies and meat eaters

Loove this place so much!! Everyone is super chill and friendly plus they have the cutest dog. It’s perfect for a lovely lunch/dinner because they serve heaps of vegetarian/vegan stuff but also things for meat eaters. Makes it so easy if you go out with family/friends who don’t want to miss out on meat.

Pros: Vegan/vegetarian friendly , Meat eater friendly

Quality ingredients

Came with my husband. We really enjoyed two meals, drinks and a vegan cheese platter. The total came to $100 and my main was mushroom pate on bread so it was definitely pricey for what we got. But the atmosphere, service and food quality was excellent. If we came back it would probably just be for a platter as a snack just to save some money.

Pros: 50% of the options were vegan

Cons: Expensive

Amazing vegan options

Lovely staff, genuine back story and amazing vegan options. Lots of their food is made in house (including vegan aioli). So delicious!

Left feeling very full & satisfied :)

I actually ate here a few weeks ago with my partner and the food was filling and tasty. Despite not being a vegan or vegetarian place, the chef(s) have clearly put in some thought to the vegan food. I ordered a cooked vegan breakfast and my partner a burger (can’t remember details sorry) and we had deep fried cauliflower to share. Everything was great, and quite heavy (no complaints, we left feeling full). The staff are lovely, helpful but laid back. We look forward to coming back and try the vegan cheeseboard!

Pros: Delicious, filling food, Friendly and helpful staff, Nice cosy atmosphere

Had the fish burger and the strawberry crumble. Both were delicious. Wish they’d make the brownie vegan too though. Staff was very friendly and knew their meals.

Pros: Few vegan options

Let down

We live 3 1/2 hours away so were in touch with them for 2 days. The good news for THEM is they were full. The not good news ABOUT them is they promised they would have a table for us, we were calling and talking for 2 days but when we arrived no where to sit unless I could sit in a deep couch to a coffee table.... I am handicapped, I was in touch because we didn't know how traffic would be or how I'd be on the long drive.

I was upset to be treated as though the lack of table were, somehow, MY fault. Apology would be SO much nicer than the reception we had.

A lovely Thai place over the road made vegan Thai food for us.

Pros: They spoke to us for 2 days and promised a table, They were busy

Cons: No table for us, AWFUL attitude

Amazing vegan food

Amazing food in Devonport! Sam the owner is vegan so over half the menu is actually vegan 😍

This is my go to spot for dinner. Particularly recommend the cauliflower side for dinner and the vegan breakfast.

Pros: Vegan drinks (cocktails and wines listed as vegan, Loads of options, Delicious food

Cons: Can’t give it 5 stars

satisfied my sweet tooth

I only had dessert, an apple crumble with coconut ice cream, it was so good, especially the apple crumble. I definitely recommend both.

Went there for dinner but they were out of a lot of the vegan options. We ended up with a nut roast which was really nice but they only had one vegan dessert option. One of the staff members was really nice but the other was quite rude. The food was really delicious so would probably go again.

So good we want to move here!

If I was able to give it 5 stars I would (restricted by happycow because it isn’t fully vegan).
The food here was so creative and delicious! The staff was so incredibly friendly and excited about the food.

Every menu item had a vegan option associated with it. Even their drinks that contained egg had a vegan option using aquafaba- it was so creative and tasty! We got the tofu tacos, vegan burger, and the cashew cheese board. Everything exceeded expectations but the cheese board really blew us away. This was the first time I have had vegan brie and it did not disappoint! The cheese was flavorful without relying on saltiness.

We left the restaurant in a state of bliss. Cannot say enough good things about it.

Pros: So many vegan options, Creative food pairings, Super friendly staff

Cons: I’m not allowed to give this 5 stars, I live in another country and can’t go frequently
