Amazing! - Edit

Great food and great vibe at this Levin institution. Vegan in 1984 as a husband and wife team, apparently the daughter brought vegan items to the menu after returning from university. Nice place to sit and watch locals and tourists alike laugh, talk, and chill. There are newspapers and kids toys.

The vegan "Benedict" was spectacular, but it was a special and may not always be available. The TALT was a little light on the avocado and tempeh and subbed salad dressing for mayo, so was less impressive, but still good.

The cake slice (coconut) was one of the best cakes I've had, worldwide, hands down. Nice work folks!

There is outdoor seating but it is right next to the highway so the big trucks come by.

There is unmetered parking by the rose garden and there's a back entrance if you want to avoid the metered parking on the main street.

If you are driving past do not fail to stop and taste this delicious piece of Levin history!

Pros: Best cake ever, Lots of worthy vegan options, Great community vibe

What a find in Levin - Edit

Whispers is an institution in Levin and actually, not somewhere I would have thought would have such brilliant vegan options but they most certainly do. They have a few vegan baked goods in the cabinet (I had a very delicious peppermint chocolate slice) and they do a vegan big breakfast, nachos (with vegan cheese!), TLT (tempeh avo tomato sandwich) and a lasagne with a cashew cheesey sauce. I think there is also a burger too. Our barista was wearing a vegan t shirt and the staff were lovely. I felt right at home.
So amazing to have this place right on the main road. It really will help break up the journey to/from Wellington heading north.

The Big Vegan Breakfast.... - Edit

This is a great cafe with a relaxed, casual vibe and plenty of room for the busy weekend brunch crowd on the Main street of Levin. We had the 'Big Vegan Breakfast'. A nice mixed grill of vege, and 'sausage' with toast &relish on the side - delicious. Blackboard menu items include vegan nachos, a BLAT, soups & smoothies. Vegan hot drink options too from the vegan barista.
Also clearly labelled vegan desserts vary in the cabinet. Vegan staff working behind the counter are very helpful. Good prices and big portions. Well worth checking out if you're in Levin!

Pros: Big portions with good prices, Helpful staff, Plenty of space - Good vibe Cafe

Delicious:) - Edit

Lovely service! We stopped in our way up north. Quite a few vegan options available that all sounded yummy, we ordered the vegan lasagne and a soy hot chocolate with vegan marshmallows on the side :)
The lasagne was super yummy with a cashew nut cheese sauce omnomnom
The hot choccy was also yummy, not too sweet.
