Cool setting, wholesome fun food

Many options, amazingly fast but too-cool service, huge portions, good quality to reward yourself after walking around Fitzroy-Carlton.

Recently visited here and overall enjoyed it. Service was very friendly and helpful which was nice although we waited about an hour for a table but that's quite normal as this place is very popular plus we were a group. I was disappointed with the crumbed and stuffed mushroom starter as there was about 6 small button mushrooms that were... More

Whilst in Melbourne for work recently I ate at the Vegie Bar 7 nights of my stay. I found the Vegie Bar to be inconsistent in their accommodation of variations to meals i.e. one night it was okay to make changes and the next not. I also found the quality of the meals to decline over the 7 nights. When... More

You most definitely do NOT have to be a vegetarian/vegan to enjoy the amazing food produced by The Vegie Bar. I wish I could live in Melbourne, I would eat here all the time. The Atmosphere was really great and the flourless chocolate cake ... to die for. Highly recommended!!!

My husband and I came to The Vegie Bar for lunch (take away) before rushing to the airport, and even though the restaurant was very busy, the man on the register was super helpful with our special dietary needs. We ordered stir fried noodles, which were perfect. 10/10, wish we could go back and eat in!
