It was packed but we still got great service, had a couple of lovely drinks and it was hard to choose from the beautiful menu options! The staff were happy and the customers smiling, we wish we had a this restaurant back home!

I've been to Vegie Bar a couple of times; the food is always great! I'm hooked on their Tofu and Quinoa burger. The service can be slow, we waited about 40 minutes until a gentleman working there looked after us even though where we were seated wasn't his section (this is yesterday). He though, made our dining experience that day... More

First think I thought, when it was suggested that the family go to the Veggie bar in Brunswick street, Fitzroy, was that the parking would be a nightmare. Fortunate for me, as I was driving, we seemed to find a spot quite easily.... maybe we were lucky. The place itself looked impressive, nice atmosphere... great on the eye. It was... More

Busy place that caters to people who just want to get in and have a meal and get out again in a hurry. Not the sort of place you would linger and chat. Very noisey but great place to people watch.They have communal tables some with chairs and others with stools. No bookings at this place however when we arrived... More

If you have Vegetarians and Vegans in your group this is the restaurant to go to in Melbourne. Its been here for a long time and the food just gets better. If your a carnivore like me it can be hard to accept but the variety and choices offered make you think it is a regular restaurant. Try the Nachos,... More

Such a wonderful experience. An enticing selection of vegetarian meals and drinks. Moroccan tagine was spicy yet very tasty. Sampled the burrito which will be my selection next visit. Loved the mango lassi and the coconut chocolate shake was divine.

The service was friendly and very prompt, despite the fact that the place was full. The place offers a large vegetarian and vegan menu, which is great. However the food we ordered was not mesmerising . We had the tajine and the curry. They were ok, but certainly not amazing. The recipes were executed in a rather amateurish way, and... More

Are here twice over Christmas and New Year, once by myself for lunch, and once via Uber Eats. Fabulous. I think I had the GF Vegan gnocchi which was beautifully presented and tasted amazing; then we had the Moroccan Tagine and Mushroom Burger. Both were excellent. The day I had lunch there was very busy, yet the waiter wasn't rushed... More

How I wished I owned just a portion of this business - the vegetarian food is always great - heaps of choices- generous serves and despite the apparent chaos, the service flows well. There is main dining area with communal tables and a side dining area with another large dining area, a mezzanine and a bar pit the back. Sometimes... More

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighborhood Profile
Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
