Vegan options but not vegan friendly - Edit

We shared a large vegan version of a Classic Vegetarian here for dinner after the movies. It was a decent feed for two people and, at $18, typically priced, but, while OK, it really didn't have a great deal of flavour. I know that there a better vegan pizzas in Melbourne. I'm also not quite sure why they charge $4 more for vegetarian pizzas (and $8 more for "premium" vegetarian) than for non-vegetarian ones - and that's before adding the extra $2 for vegan cheese. The food may be vegan but the price isn't friendly. Having said that, I'd come back to try some of the other vegan options, such as burgers and desserts.

Cons: Pizza not that tasty , Price of veg pizzas significantly higher than non-

Now veg friendly - Edit

Seems to have taken over (and updated) the menu from the plush pizza whuch used to be down the road at no.85. Pizza is not quite as good as the original plush but better than when (I presume) that business was sold and run into the ground by the new owners. Have not tried the pasta options yet.

Update - in April 2015 name changed from veggie choice to zesty pizza. Now serves meat but retains a large part of the vegetarian menu.

Pros: solid pizza

Cons: A little pricey for what it is.

Pros: plenty of vegan

Cons: needs healthier options, atmosphere

Mediocre pizza - Edit

Now that veganism is becoming more mainstream, I expect the quality to be of a much higher standard. I would suggest Red Sparrow as a much better alternative

Nice little pizza shop - Edit

Vegetarian menu, with the option to make vegan ie. vegan cheese on a pizza at a small additional cost.
Ordered the roast vegetable pizza, which was quite nice. I live quite close so I will definitely be back!

Pros: Vegan options
