Everything is prepared fresh to order and we like trying something different every time...but sometimes, it is difficult due to the fantastic memory of the dish you ordered the last time!

For those who enjoy vegetarian, pleasant staff, and nice atmosphere. Great place to stop on a warm summer day or evening, sit on a veranda with a meal, friend and a beer. Very dependable food of moderate variety. Change in menu items would be welcome for us regulars.

Quite far from the TCH but I regularly take the opportunity to go downtown Moncton just for the goodness and satisfaction of eating well. I can eat a big healthy meal without a trace of that yucky feeling after eating anywhere else. The Big Mark burger surpasses any beef burger from any restaurant. It is totally a mistery how they...

This is a wonderful vegetarian restaurant. Great service, excellent food and a nice quiet atmosphere (I went on a Monday night). I had the Taj Mahal Thali (curried lentils, mixed vegetables basmati rice), which was very good, together with a local beer and a brownie for dessert. I would definitely return again when in Moncton.

The Calactus cafe has grown in reputation in leaps and bounds and is no longer a fledgeling in the foodie community. Their food is vegan heaven with locally sourced ingredients and produce with some of the ingredients grown by the restaurant itself. A warning to the wise: It is very busy for dinner and brunches. The only room for improvement... More

With gluten and dairy allergies, it's always a challenge to find dinner when travelling, but my husband & I can always find great choices here. We were introduced to Calactus several years ago by family members & always return every time we're in Moncton.

The high ranking here is certainly for the food which was great. Lots of variety on the menu, and good specials. I had the mushroom cannelloni, my son pizza and my husband had the "Mustafa." The portions were also very good. Concerning the service, I believe we were at the restaurant for about 3 hours - and that wasn't because... More

the menu and actual charges still dont match.. the food is good but there's no way it should be priced that high. Have just as good of a vegetarian fresh local meal at Carboni or Archibald. The service is also not that great.. waitress seemed like she hated her job.

Even though this is a vegetarian restaurant, a meat lover like me was able to find a great, satisfying lunch for a reasonable price. The service was excellent and the pizza / sandwich combo excellent
