Vegetarian food is not normally this good. Very flavourful. Not too large a menu. Good options. Staff are friendly.

I don't know what the food is like because, after being ignored by the staff for 1/2 hour, only to find that we were expected to order from the counter, we walked out. Instead, of pointing this out, they were just sitting at the next table doing NOTHING! They seem to forget there is a city worth of restaurants out... More

Another small restaurant in St. John's that I often walked past because I wasn't sure what they would have to offer, or if it was my style. I went in with friends who always gave it a good review. It is a small restaurant with seating for probably 30-40. It has a small kitchen, which will slow food delivery during... More

Before our trip, I have read a lot of reviews about this restaurant online; very positive and very negative, and was not sure if I wanted to try. When we got in town from the airport and get ready to go out to find a place to eat, another vegan/vegetarian place I planned to try was already closed, and we... More

Not the best service, but I came for lunch around 2, so it could have been my timing. I waited about 30 minutes until someone asked me for my order. I got the lentil burger, which was very good. It came with a salad that had no dressing on it (I wasn't asked what kind of dressing I wanted) so... More

The only place to be if you delight in vegetarian and vegan food. Amazing Pad Thai, burgers and salads. Absolutely one of our favorite places to dine. Staff are wonderful!

Its not often you can visit a place four or five years in a row and always find it welcoming, relaxing, and with great food. Really great simple vegetarian meals. And the only place in town for fruit and vegetables, as this is otherwise a land of synthetic, "flavored" plastic food.

We loved the Sprout so much we visited twice during our short stay in St John's. Their Blue Moon salad is epic -- the homemade dressing is divine with the blue cheese, fruit, nuts, and everything else. My meat-a-tarian hubby had the Pad Thai with tofu and loved it so much, he ordered it again the next time too. Their... More

Delicious and healthy meals! Especially the sweet potato chick pea curry special. Prices are very reasonable. Will be back many times.

You don't have to be a vegetarian or a vegan to enjoy this restaurant. Their salads are delicious. My partner tried the beet salad and I had a creation called the Blue Moon salad. Generous amounts of blue cheese and walnuts make this a substantial dish. Have the large size and it's a meal. Have a hazelnut chocolate chip cookie... More
