We had breakfast here this morning and it was lovely. Staff were great.
I got the miniature breakfast which was £6.95. Good portion size, VERY tasty tofu! Would definitely eat here again.
Would give 5* but not a fully vegan restaurant. Also served oat milk ect

Pros: Tasty, Good location

Cons: Not fully vegan cafe

Amazing chili nachos

Although not entirely vegan, there were great vegan food and drink options. The restaurant itself was really cosy, with lots of house plants along the walls.

Pros: Wide range of vegan options , Big portions

Cons: Wish the entire menu was vegan!

Expensive and disappointing quality

I only had milkshakes, so hopefully the food is better! But...
Milkshakes were a fiver each, and small. The peanut butter and banana milkshake tasted of neither. Service was so on a quiet day.

Cons: Poor value, Average quality

Yummy cake

Can’t comment on the savoury food options as we just stopped in for some tea and a snack, but the chocolate truffle tart we had was absolutely delicious! a nice, reasonably priced cafe that we’d probably visit again ☺️

Tasty food, amazing vegan cakes

Went there after a long hike. Our food was delicious. Their dinner menu is 100% vegan😄I had the vegan Moroccan burger - apricot and herby minty patty with hummous and the usual trimmings. Boyfriend had the hot dog. We shared the coffee and walnut cake which was absolutely delicious.
Unfortunately a couple of things were missing in our order - no crushed olives in my burger (as indicated on the menu - they must have run out?) And my boyfriend was brought the wrong hot dog (he wanted the mexican one) I think they were training a new waitress so we didn't say anything. They also had run out of red wine!?
It was almost empty for a Saturday night... maybe because the students are still away on holiday?
Staff were very friendly and played good songs! Overall, a place to try!

Pros: 100% vegan dinner menu with original choices, Yummy vegan cakes, Friendly staff

Cons: Issues with missing/wrong items, Almost empty on a Saturday night!

fantastic mushroom burger

I ate the best vegan mushroom burger in my life at this well-lit little place in the North Laines area in Brighton. It was nearly full when we arrived around 2PM on a Friday in June, but they seated our party of 8 easily in back. Service was friendly and on top of food allergy issues. We did need to wait at least a half hour for our food; we ended up eating every scrap of it all, from berry smoothie to aforementioned mushroom burger to veggie wrap. All was fresh, mains piping hot and delicious. Good for kids (we had four with us, from toddler to preteen).

Not what it used to be

Update on below review. This place has changed a lot, always busy but the staff are quite abrupt these days and rushing around. Takes ages to get served. Ordered a vegan breakfast but certain the sausages were Quorn non vegan. Asked and was told they were new but didn't eat as wasn't convinced. Guy on the table beside me ordered a soya latte and was served cows milk. I heard him ask and be reassured it wasn't, then waitress came back a moment later and apologised that it wasn't soya! Have heard that manager is not very nice.

This was my second time having breakfast here. Great veg menu with lots of vegan options. I had the pancakes stack with maple syrup and my boyfriend had the full vegan fry that came with grilled tofu.
I like how they have put thought into their vegan options and have altered the menu to suit. Big portions, tasty food, friendly staff and well located in the middle of the North laines. They also seem to have a wide range on their lunch menu with plenty of vegan options too.

Pros: good food, friendly staff, reasonable prices , good location

Good vegan meals and mostly everthing has a vegan option

It's a nice place and you can sit outside and have your drink or meal there. We had the platter for two with additional chips and guacamole on the side. I can recommend going there. It's really good that mostly every meal which is vegetarian has a Vegan option. Prices are OK.
