Very high grade deserts

Its not a full kitchen although they seem to offer dishes occasionally, but they specialise in deserts. Very well. I also took away fermented kaju yogurt. Was delicious.

Unfriendly staff but okish food

They tried to move us into another uncomfortable table for a photoshoot, when we refused they gave us the attitude and kept it up. Really disappointed that a vegan place is so unfriendly.

disappointing experince

surface of kisch was burnt and there were frozen parts inside. Maybe it was because I went around closing time but it was unfair. I do not recommend.

Pros: cozy decoration

Cons: expensive, non- attentive staff

Comida deliciosa y hecha ahí mismo

Este establecimiento ofrece desayunos, comidas, postres incluso granola y mantequillas hechas ahí mismo. Trabajadoras muy amables y el servicio fue rápido. Es verdad que el precio es más caro pero relación calidad precio está genial. El lugar es agradable también.

High quality and tasty food

I didn't expect much from this place and ended up being positively surprised. I had a root juice and a crumble. It wasn't too sweet but still tasty. I also had a salad to take away. I ate it later. It was absolutly delicious. Many different greens, green peas, carots, zuchinis, eggplants, quinoa, artichoke, sprouted seeds. I could feel that was high quality food. I absolutly recommend this place !

Found this place thanks to the Happy Cow app. Quite trendy little place. Was busy enough which is a good sign. Had pumpkin soup and an avocado sandwich for 100TL
Good value, great food, cool atmosphere.
Love it.

Good atmosphere, good food

The location of YAYAraw is quiet nice and surrounded by a lot of trees, the stuff was great as well.
We had the Veggie Bowl with Falafel (wich was really tasty) and the Red Bean Bowl (wich was pretty boring and not well seasoned)
Also the Red Berry Cake was more in the Categorie "Good, but it could be better"

Complaining on high level ;)

Pros: Atmosphere, Stuff, Veggie Bowl

Cons: Red Bean Bowl

The restaurant has a lovely beauitful setting with trees and plants surrounding you and peaceful music. The food was delicious, with interesting combination of ingredients that worked very well. The meals were fresh and healthy. We highly recommend the avacado sandwich with cashew cheese.
We tried the apple cake dessert and the chocolate 'magnum' ice cream, in my opinion they weren't very special compared to the main courses. The apple cake was dry and the ice cream was very small and wasn't very creamy compared to other vegan alternatives.

Overall we definitely recommend this as a stop on your visit in Izmir.

Cozy café with tasty vegan food

Had a protein bowl and a piece of tiramisu. Loved them. If I were really hungry, I might order two main dishes next time. Everything on the menu is vegan. Seating is comfy and in a shaded outdoor space.

They forgot we ordered any food (Edited: Feb, 10)

My partner and I were here twice. The first time each of us ordered a dish and a drink. They had to come back to us again and ask what drinks did we order. It's alright, it happens. The next time we were here, each of us ordered a dish and a bottle of water. They brought us water and forgot that we have ordered any food C: Had to wait for 40 minutes, while being in a hurry, as I planned to eat quickly and go to a museum, only to learn that the staff simply forgot the main part of our order. Please, please, PLEASE start writing down the orders.

Terrible service aside, the food was pretty nice for a raw cafe. Though again, I only tried it once.

Edit: Ok, a few months passed and I decided to give their delivery a try. It was a great decision! It's really fast, I get all the items I order and the food is rather tasty! Though you never know what you're going to get if you order a bowl, because it changes from day to day and even throughout the day.

Nice staff, delicious food

I picked up food there two times when beeing in Izmir the last time.
I even took one on my flight home - and earned jealous looks from the other passengers.
The Veggie Bowl is different each day. Both tasted great and included a large variety of different Veggies, Grain and Legumes.
A also tried two different cheesecakes, which also were really delicious.
It is a little bit pricier compared to other restaurants in Izmir - but it is because they use high quality ingredients, so it is worth it.
The staff is really nice, english speaking and explaines a lot if you have any questions.
They also sell some Products like homemade Buckwheat -Rawnola (tastes great!) or nut Butter.
I am looking forward to my next visit in Izmir, to get my hands on one of these Veggie Bowls again.

Delicous, vegan and healthy

It’s a beautiful and peaceful place. Everything is 100% vegan. We had a veggie bowl, raw zucchini spaghetti and raw tiramisu. They were all so delicious! The veggie bowl was created with seasonal and local veggies! Prices are a little high for frequent visits but really worth to try! Inside there is only one table of 6-8 but also there is a garden/winter garden which has more tables.

Pros: 100% vegan, Beautiful space , Knowledgeable staff

Cons: Expensive

Mastiha is the best!

I tried the cheesecake with mastiha and I really liked it. Maybe more salty choices or vegan raw burgers, pizzas could be added to the menu.
