I try to come for brunch at least 1-2 times a month and it is always consistent and delicious. We got the Keith’s Goliath Burger and the breakfast quesadilla and both were good! I try to switch it up every time we go. We never...leave hungry or disappointed. If you’re looking to share your meal with a friend, the kitchen will cut your burger in half for you, as we usually do to share two different things. Have an open mind if you aren’t vegan or vegetarian and enjoy 🫶More

I am not vegetarian but eat a lot of vegetarian meals. Was excited to go here as it was top rated in St John. I was a bit disappointed by many meat alternative offerings instead of more veggie centric options. Our meal was fine. I...had the Santa Fe salad - I could not taste any lime, peanut, or cilantro to the sauce (I actually wonder if they used the wrong dressing) and did not find any avocado in the salad at all. The cookie was not to my taste but my husband liked it.More

I love this spot. If you're someone who is vegetarian or vegan and you have friends who aren't - you never have to worry that they won't enjoy eating here. EVERYTHING is delish, and you can tell that care and consideration goes into each dish....It's definitely a Saint John gem. Brunch, lunch, dinner - you can't go wrong! The atmosphere is inviting, the servers are great, the restaurant is clean, and in the Summer they have a great cozy outdoor space. Just go, and bring your family and friends.More

This is the portion size for a $20 appetizer at Vegolution. No, I didn't eat any before snapping the picture. It's mushrooms and olives. That's it. They may be locally sourced or foraged mushrooms, but I counted 5 olives and less than 10 small mushrooms....This is the second time I've visited while in town on business. I had the same the first time when I paid over $20 for half a broccoli. The dishes tasted ok, but I can't justify the taste for feeling this ripped off. You certainly made your profit margins off of me for the last time. I can't understand where all the high reviews are coming from.More

This place is wonderful! It has such a friendly vibe that welcomes you in and feel at ease. Our server was very attentive and even helped us with directions for our next destination. The food was delicious! We shared their signature appetizer, Sticky Korean Soy...Bites, and loved it. My wife had fried brussels that were cooked to perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed the Veggie Donair…so amazing! A place that’s well worth visiting!More

A friendly ,clean, non pretentious and tasty spot with a couple of wrinkles. My friend and I made a dinner reservation earlier in the day as we were just around the corner at the Market. This turned out to be a good idea, it was...Friday evening and it was pretty full when we returned to claim our table. Our table was right by the front window, and the one issue was that it is an open kitchen concept and for some reason clean dishes were being very loudly stacked and sorted on the counter nearby. We were offered a table out back but the space was not very inspiring. More like dining in an alley rather than a back patio. We were glad not to be treated to TV screens or loud music inside (which has become all too common in restaurants. ) Apart from the loud dish sorting, we could hear each other without raising our voices. The menu is limited. There are some very substantial burgers, "donair", poutine and a few hearty salads. My friend, a lifelong vegetarian commented that she is not that excited about "meat like offerings" but would like to have seen more straight up grain or bean based dishes that did not have a meat counterpart. That said, we were both impressed with the freshness and flavour of our meal. We ordered a large salad bowl which featured a large variety of spiralized veggies, some toasted chickpeas, marinated green beans and a very creamy delicious avocado dressing. Adding some tofu was extra. I saw some very lovely loaves of fresh bread behind the bar and I was hoping we might get some with our meal but no. There were no added touches. No lemon water, bread, pickles or small nibble. I would have preferred that a dollar or so be added to our meal and had a bit of something extra. For dessert we sampled the beet spice cake which was a bit on the small size for the price, but very delicious. They had sold out of a couple of desserts such as the cashew based Crème Brule by the time we ordered so it might be wise to order something early if it catches your eye. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We did not feel rushed or pushed to leave the table for a second sitting. We looked at the Saturday Brunch options and considered it but the menu was not very appealing to us. It had a lot of full plates with heavier pseudo meat options when we would have enjoyed seeing lighter a la carte offerings such as oatmeal and fruit, protein smoothies, salads or veggie omelets. This is a spot for a healthy, fresh and pleasant meal. I would go again if I were in St John.More

Santa Fe salad and the VEGful bowl were both excellent for our lunch. We followed up with deserts which were good too. We sat outside at the back in the shade on a sunny day

We had the vegan dinar with fresh fries and a veg-full bowl with a cilantro lime dressing. Both were well made and well flavored. The fiddleheads in the salad were amazing!

I google "best Poutine" in St. John's since we were cruising and made a stop there. I can honestly say that this was the best poutine I have ever had and it's not even close. We also had a mushroom appetizer dish that was incredibly...delicious. We raved about this place the entire cruise.More
