There have to be better options - Edit

We got to the cafe and there was a sign at the door saying that they were looking for a new chef so what we received might not have been a reflection of the experiences others might have had. We ordered the sweet potato fries, eggplant fries, nachos, rice noodles with vegetables and the vegetarian schwarma. The fried food was passable (in the way that anything deep fried is usually bearable), the noodles tasted okay but were pretty basic and I found bits of onion peeling in mine. The vegetarian schwarma was a mix of vegetables in a wrap - they tasted funny. The nachos were stale covered in haphazard onion, tomato and cilantro. Massively disappointed and would not go back. I'm loathe to give anyone one star but this was pretty close to getting it. Service was okay by Manila standards.

Pros: Clearly marked vegetarian and vegan options

Cons: substandard food and pricy for what it was

Great Vegan Options - Edit

I was very happy to find somewhere in this part of town who had vegan options on their menu and not just a few, there was plenty of choice :)

We had a couple of meals here and my favourite things were the humus with pitta bread and the crispy butternut squash.

The staff are incredibly friendly however the service was a little slow as it took 50 mins for three dishes to arrive so if you have other plans after, allow plenty of time.

cheap and does the job - Edit

We ate a few meals and a breakfast here. They have some veg rice and noodle dishes that worked for us. Owner is from a Syrian background and I am
Sure does some good hummous as well. Breakfast is good for the area - 120 for good and real coffee with toast or danish.

Pros: varied selection for vegetarians and vegans , lovely staff

Cons: standard food - nothing too yummy

good food, friendly staff - Edit

This was our first restaurant in Manila and were thrilled at the vegan options. Could use more and we would be eating here every day. Prices were a bit high for what you got.

Pros: tasty vegan options

Cons: few vegan options
