The food is ok, but overpriced for the amount and quality you get. The service has a lot to improve - the girls don't even take the time to look at you or say thank you and goodbye, the soup to go is poured into...a cup so that it leaks and the quiche gets smashed while being packaged. Didn't feel very welcoming so I don't feel like coming back as there're plenty of more friendly places all around.More

One of those nice little places with good food, that comes at a price.... Vegan meal was OK, but 9 € bowl was way to small portion for me, and guess what - bread u have to pay extra...... Bottom line - there are plenty...of better vegan/vegeterian options in a circle of 5 min, where u acctualy get real value for your money. Overpriced, avoid!More

Located in the historic Plečnik arcade on the edge of Ljubljana’s open air market, everything here is fresh, delicious and vegetarian or vegan. Quite a find in a country that celebrates meat in a lot of its national dishes. Reasonable prices for a generous bowl...of soup with bread, a salad or sandwich. If you come for a late lunch you might miss out on the vegan quiche, but don’t worry there’s a choice of unusual desserts, perfect for sharing at a girlfriends’ get together. Coffee is also excellent and served with a smile. We snagged one of the few tables inside but plenty of locals enjoyed the October sunshine at the outdoor tables.More

I visit this place regularly because it's one of a few healthy places in Ljubljana. The food is good, but I really don't appreciate the rudeness of waitresses, I really feel like I'm a big burden for them and they take forever to bring me...my order. And also the prices are just too high if you compare with other healthy places like this across Europe.More

The Burger was ok. I took the Salad Bowl, Local, b/c of allergens in the Burger. The quality in the Salad did not meet the price = 7.90 €. Very overpriced, even in Ljubljana.

I highly recommend the peanut butte banana bread, so good. We had the vegan burger, the vegan protein salad and the vegan blueberry cheesecake. All were excellent. It's a little hole in the wall, but a really good one, perfect for a quick bite.

I ordered a vanilla cookie. It was awful I found it did not have any taste. There is indoor and outdoor seating. They also have take away.
