I love the Hare Krishna values of fresh, clean and good tasting food served with love. This place is busy most evenings and a little unusual so be pleasant. The explanation of meals on offer are not like other Hare cafes, its a bit complicated....More

Popped in for an evening meal whilst staying in Harrogate. Had a lovely meal. The food was tasty and nicely cooked. The service was excellent and the place was very busy for a Monday, which says a lot about a restaurant! Recommended!

We went here twice and loved it. My partner wasn't even a vegetarian and it was still one of his favourite places in byron! I highly recommend. There desserts are also really good. Bring cash because they don't take card.

Perfect spot for a plate of vegetarian and vegan goodness. Select a range of dishes to load up on. Would go back!

This is what I call a real Byron Bay eating place. Everyone who comes in looks like a wizard, a hippy or a musician. The food is filling and cheap, but they only take cash. Come prepared. They really fill the plates. We had a...More
