I read the reviews for this restaurant which are mixed and wish I had ignored the more negative ones and headed here to eat when I first arrived in St John's. As it was, I managed three visits in my 5 days in St John's. I would quite happily have worked my way through the menu - though that may... More

I love a great vegetarian spot, and Sprout was great. We each ordered a cup of soup, and shared a sandwich. There was more than than enough food for lunch. Delicious and would definitely return.

I was excited to see there's a vegetarian/vegan restaurant in St. John's to try. Service was relaxed, but very friendly and ready to serve. The place also had a really homey feel -- nicely decorated all around. The food, however, was quite sub-par. Had the tofu pad thai and the chips with salsa. Chips and salsa were not bad. The...

I'm currently on holiday in St John's and being a vegetarian I have found it hard to get a veggie meal so when my friend told me about The Sprout I was super excited unfortunately that excitement dissolved very quickly. I ordered the Falafel Platter which is something I love sadly when it arrived it was anything but good I... More

A cozy, fun little restaurant in the heart of St. John's! Good food, and friendly service, I loved this place! We had the pad thai, sweet, spicy, and sooo good, and the falafel platter, which was also delicious. The restaurant has booths and tables and a pretty chill vibe, with friendly staff. As a vegetarian I was excited to try... More

Really happy this place exists. Went twice once for lunch and also picked up take out supper. I was really happy to find a vegetarian spot and the take out dinner was good... tofu veggie stir fry was nice, the rice was very good but the whole dish was very very salty. The soup was also very good, not as... More

We enjoyed the best of vegetarian food at this restaurant. Good vegetarian options are sometimes very difficult to come by in Newfoundland. We were so thrilled to find this restaurant and have it meet our expectations. We found the food here much cheaper than we had expected. Most vegetarian options elsewhere tended to be pricey, but not here. The food... More

Loved The Sprout. Ate there 3 times while we were in St John's. Highly recommend the falafel platter, pad thai and beet salad. A nice alternative to fried fish.

The Sprout had a really good selection of vegan/vegetarian food and what we ordered was delicious. The service could have been better, but it has a very cozy atmosphere. Definitely worth trying!
