Critic's review

Bazil Stander

Food
Ariel Cohen, owner, food whizz and darling of the Jozi vegan scene, has transformed his previously retail-only vegan prepared meal range into an exciting, quirky vegan café. Using elements of his existing range of condiments, dairy-free cheese and lots of organic and farm fresh ingredients, Ariel has opened this kitchen of infinite possibilities. Ingredients are cleverly combined and styled into flavour packed café food that is innovative and new. Try the kale, cauliflower and ginger soup; the brown funghi and calamata olive pizza; the falafel wrap or chickpea burger; or the quinoa tofu with shiitake – all addictively delicious. The ready-prepared meals offer great flavours and interesting combinations too. Be sure not to miss the tofu mayo, hot coriander salsa and ginger jelly. Everything here is free from gluten, sugar, wheat, dairy, preservatives and, of course, animals!

Drinks
No booze or coffee – this is clean eating all the way! Try the amazing dairy-free hot chocolate, chai tea or freshly squeezed juice and coconut water.

Service 
Place your order at the counter and relax. It’s all about the incredibly innovative and yummy food.

Ambience 
The look is pared down, quirky and playful. This is a space that doesn’t take itself too seriously, so come as you are.
