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!

The service today was horrendous... but the food was as delicious as usual. I love the Sprout despite having to prompt the server to bring my soup, tea, water, etc... If that aspect was improved, they'd definitely get 5 stars!

This is a cute place - nice ambience, excellent food, funky staff. It's hard to find - it's almost literally a hole-in-the-wall. But once found, it's worth returning to! One criticism - we went there three times and each time, SOMETHING on the menu wasn't available. However, the menu is diverse enough that this wasn't really a problem - we... More

This is a great little restaurant. Lovely, wholesome vegetarian fare and really friendly staff. Cosy and quirky it was just what we were looking for after a busy day of sightseeing. I can thoroughly recommend the fabulous homemade hummous which was served with the most delicious molasses bread. Our main courses came with lovely fresh salad on the side. All... More

This is a very nice veggie/vegan restaurant. The setting is nothing much from outside - it is St Johns after all - but the inside is welcoming and intimate with quirky local art on the walls. The food is very good and tasty, and prepared with care and attention to the details. Service is friendly and quick. Desserts are good... More

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