Nestled in the heart of Greenside, the Greenside Café is a vegetarian and vegan haven. The food is prepared with integrity, love and mindfulness for human beings, other beings, and the planet.
Being a vegetarian usually means a very small part of the menu is suitable for me.
But The Greenside Café is one place I am spoilt for choice. The food is tasty (despite what those meat eaters think) and prepared with love.
The amazing ethos behind the café is executed perfectly. The food is all about positive energy and nourishing your soul. It's a little on the pricey side but it's well worth it. I hope in years to come that this little place is still there, changing people's perceptions on vegan food one plate at a time.
The Greenside Cafe really is an absolute gem in Jo'burg. Serving delicious wholesome food which is accessible to both meat eaters and vegetarians/vegans alike, The Greenside Cafe is highly recommended. I experienced my best pizza ever at The Greenside Cafe with this restaurant being a favourite for Friday and Saturday night dinners.
The desserts are out of this world as well as having a fantastic and variety selection of smoothies and juices for all tastes.
I wish they were open every evening for dinner, the food is amazing!
The owner Dimitri is passionate about healthy food , welcomes feedback and is often adding new additions to the menu.
A must visit!
The information on this restaurant doesnt really describe what it is - one of Joburgs first vegan restaurants. All the dishes are meat free and the delicious freshly squeezed fruit juices or Fair Trade coffees replace a wine list. When we recently ate there (delicious wheat-free pizza and a lasagne made of raw veggies that was sublime) Dimitri, the owner and a friend of ours, told us he now has a regular group of customers who have breakfast or lunch and then come back for take-aways in the evening! Try it out - you wont be disappointed.
The service was good, the food was delicious (you have to try out ALL the desserts - they are incredible!) and it was a great place to spend some time catching up with friends.
