Good meal but a little too sweet - Edit

The one vegan choice on the lunch menu is good and reasonably priced, but everything in it was either sweet or slightly sweet.

Pros: Delicious, OK price

Cons: Everything a bit sweet

Yummy vegan cake - Edit

I visited the cosy cafe located on the basement floor and ate a vegan cake (I did not find it in the menu, but asked for it). It was super delicious and nicely arranged on the plate. The staff knew basic English and was very friendly. I liked the artsy atmosphere. Next to the cash desk they sold some bits and pieces like towels with lovely kitten imprints.

Pros: Vegan cake

Friendly and Relaxing Cafe - Edit

Despite being pretty busy, this cafe is a nice place to hang out. They display local artwork on the walls and the chairs are comfortable. There is only once choice for vegans, but that is more than you will find anywhere else in Onomichi (one of the staff members is a Vegan, which may account for why it is on the menu), and it is filling and delicious. If you are Vegetarian, there are other options such as pizza.

Pros: Delicious local food, Friendly Staff

Cons: Limited options, Limited English
