I just love this place, they have great menu selection for vegetarian and Vegans. I enjoy the Tofu Scramble or the chocolate waffles! (Vegan)
Great place to grab breaks, brunch, or Lunch. One of my go to places in my area 🙂

Cons: Can get busy on weekends!

Good price but average food - Edit

We ordered a couple of dishes to share from the cabinet display. The quinoa fritter was like cake, in taste (sweet) and texture ('cakey', possibly something to do with being microwaved) and the coconut yoghurt dressing added to this impression. The fritter was accompanied by a huge amount of salad, and I'd made the mistake of ordering only a salad that consisted mostly of shredded cabbage, with no evidence of the cashew cream ranch dressing - dry and bland. The other dish was a vegan quiche, which was nothing like a quiche (not necessarily a problem), more like a lasagna in flavour, with only capers to make it slightly more interesting. The 'Cowboy' salad with this had a few more points of interest and more flavour than the cabbage one. At around $23 altogether, the price was very reasonable but the food unremarkable.

Pros: Reasonably priced meals

Cons: Unexciting, dry, bland salad

Basic veg fare - Edit

The menu is limited and basic - salads, quiche, and a number of specials - such as soups and curries.

I had a mushroom broth with udon noodles and tofu (option to have poached eggs). It was tasty and satisfying.

It's a pleasant place to sit, plenty of windows and a water feature. The staff were friendly and attentive (although you order and pay at the register).

It was also pretty full on a weekday with after workout folks sitting down to a healthy lunch, I assume it is a regular spot of the locals.

Needs an injection of flavour - Edit

As much as I love to support new veg places especially in the hills, it was very disappointing. Hardly any flavour. Feels like that generic veggie whole food cafe with bland salads and 'healthy' food. Not enough garlic, olive oil, salt or chilli. Vegetarian should never mean bland, no wonder some meat eaters are uninspired to try veggie food!!

Coffee needs improvement - Edit

I can't vouch for the food, but both times I've tried the coffee here while doing some shopping it's been less than great, unfortunately. Good choice of milk alternatives, but the coffee was bitter and overheated and the service wasn't very friendly. Still a good place to go for specialty vegan grocery items like protein supplements, pastas, etc.

Pros: Good milk choices, Good grocery store

Cons: Coffee needs improvement, Staff not very friendly

Fresh is better - Edit

Shared a fairly pleasant raw pizza and Vegan big breakfast but waited for almost 40 minutes for our meal to arrive despite the cafe not being overly busy. Considered ordering the salad bowl but the various salads looked wilted and well past their prime.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Pricey

Whole hum - Edit

Fairly standard breakfast/lunch menu with few surprises.
Service was very slow, food okay but not great, serving sizes average and prices high. Hopefully the menu develops in the near future.

Pros: Not much else in the area

Cons: Price/value

Everything you need!! - Edit

Like stepping into organic vegan heaven. Literally has everything you can think of, plus all the things you didn't think of! Coyo ice cream, toffurkey sausages, chips made of every vegetable, and a cafe with a fountain. Throw in a coin and they donate it to an animal charity! Love!!

Pros: has all the things!! , and a cafe , with a fountain

Cons: hard to choose, hard to leave
