Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I got the smoothie and snickers bowl. The smoothie was very good and decent price($12) for size. The snickers bowl was good at the top but a lot of smoothie on the bottom. I would recommend a smaller size for cheaper aswell but overall very nice. Snickers bowl was ($18.5)

We had a really lovely brunch here today, before heading back to Melbourne. My vegan sister is visiting so read some reviews of this place and decided it would be a good place to bring her. She loved the food; we all did. The chilli tofu scramble was delicious and so flavourful, with a nice kick of heat but not overpowering. The pancakes were lovely and fluffy. The teenager really enjoyed the Snickers acai bowl, though struggled to finish it. The plan was to try the chilli chocolate chai after food but no one had room for it so we'll have to come back for it another time. Friendly service and I appreciated not having to wait ages for the food. I'm so glad we found this place! I did notice the 'for sale' sign, which is a bit sad but we hope to come back again while it's still running.

Lovely coffee. Lovely avo toast. Lovely service. Would highly reccomend. Better than most brunches we have out in Melbourne and certainly better than any brunches we had on the island. Vegan or not, you will enjoy.

Great coffee, delicious food (Coeliac safe in our opinion), good variety, very friendly service, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed different smoothies, nachos, pancakes, smashed avo, braised beans w home made feta and coffees with an amazing range of milk alternatives. Only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars: Table could have done with a wipe when we got there.

This place was an amazing find. Fully vegan, with PLENTY of options - it was hard to decide (but that's a good problem!) It's a shame we're just passing through, otherwise we'd definitely be back.

This cafe was tucked away down a side street so missed it earlier in our trip. The dairy free and gluten free menu was an amazing find! We had great coffee and buckwheat pancakes for a family snack, and wish we’d had time to sample more of the menu. Would definitely return on our next vacation.

And great service. Cute little vegan cafe with warm welcoming accommodating staff. They were out of the tofu scramble but that just means I have even more reason to come back on our next visit to the island

Even if you’re not vegan this is a great cafe. Delicious food and great service. Lots of healthy options too. It is off the Main Street but def worth taking a look.

My partner and I came here one year ago for their mushroom burgers. BEST BURGERS we’ve ever had and we’ve been veggo for 6 years. Came back again today, (mostly to visit this cafe) unfortunately lockdown won and their kitchens weren’t open. The owner, WOW! He saw how excited we were and gave us two free mushroom burgers!!! Such a positive and nice guy! Highly recommend.

Great lunch spot. We had the buckwheat pancakes, mushroom and tofu omelette, curry Dahl, and the open face veggie burger. All were extremely tasty. The service was excellent and very friendly staff. Perfect for the kids as well. Highly recommend!

Delicious!! Well worth the visit. The food and service is terrific. Even if vegan food isn’t your scene, you will find something on the menu to love! The dhal is amazing, as if the avocado smash and their coffee might be the best on the island.
