I thought this place would be catering more to the takeaway market, and while it does, it certainly is a nice place to sit in and eat too. The service was friendly and helpful and I was soooo excited by the VEGAN tiramisu, that is something I thought I would never be able to have, being vegan. A fun, relaxed atmosphere, and the food was inspired and fresh.
Pros: Friendly, Happy ambience, good wholesome food
Cons: not fine dining!

"never go hungry again!" *****
this place is fantastic! we spent 4 days in melbourne and ate here 3 times during our holiday. the food is all beautifully prepared and tastes fabulous. well worth the tram ride to get out there, and the shop assistants are just too cute and lovely. plenty of vegan options, and lacto options. very well priced. we still rave about this place to this day!
Pros: fresh and healthy, great staff, well priced
Cons: out of town - tram ride reqd.

"Great take away and eat in hang out" *****
The place is a little out the way but worth going and stocking up.
The staff are passionate and knowledgeable, it is super clean and the choice is massive!
Great combinations of flavours presented well. Roast pumpkin and tofu parcel things are great. Good selection of cake and snacks to box up and enjoy later.
We always make trip to this place to support such a great concept that the veggie market is lacking, healthy ready meals.
Pros: Great choice, Nice staff, Good flavours

"Yummy for vego and vegans alike!" *****
This is a great place to eat in or grab take away ready to heat meals for home or while travelling!
There's a great selection of (mostly) italian inspired dishes, ranging from smaller snacks to big full meals.
Most of dishes offer vegan options or are vegan only. The staff are always lovely to boot. One of my favourite local vego options!
Pros: Cheap, Healthy, Fast
Cons: No Sundays

"Good wholesome vegetarian food" ****
I was very impressed with the quality of the food when we ate there recently. I ordered the eggplant parmiggiana with a side of broccoli. It was filling and very tasty. There are not a lot of tables inside but it is good for a small group wanting to have a relaxed dinner. Very clean interior. Highly recommended. Very tasty vegetarian food.

"Has the best service and you get your money's worth" *****
Always fresh and good quality food. One of the best vegetarian cafes I have been to. Been there many times and always leave full and happy with the service.

"Their cupcakes and desserts are really good!" *****
They have homemade donuts and they are awesome! The girls are still great and have always welcome you with a smile! Also what surprise me that they support local businesses and which I love. Their stuff is really good and they won't sell crap!

"One of Lygon Street's little gems!"
I found this little gem a few years ago and have never looked back. The coffee has to be in the top 3 on Lygon St and I would probably have tasted most of them. For many years I’ve looked for a place that can provide healthy food, taste and speedy service, and vege2go delivers on all 3 counts. Staff are friendly and inviting, the business is family owned and you can tell they take pride in their work. The place is immaculate which gives me confidence that food is prepared hygienically. Overall, highly recommend u check this place out as it is truly one of Lygon St little gems!

"Get in my BELLY!!!"
It's official.... I adore Vege2go!
The Eggplant Parmiggiana is as good as any I've ever had (and gluten free too!) and the stuffed capsicum is to die for! Meals are of generous proportions- so large that if served with a side salad you could easily eat half for lunch and half for dinner. Essentially two healthy meals for $10 - not bad, eh?
Love the fact that they have so many gluten free options (all clearly labelled) and every meal leaves you feeling complete and satisfied - not heavy and bloated like most other take-away.
Vege2go... How I love thee!

"Veg Take Away!" *****
Remember that this place really is there for the purpose of take away and they have really done it well! I usually eat in, but If I’m in a rush home I will drop past and pick up some of their yummy healthy take away =) I love the Pumpkin Triangle with a side of Broccoli YUMMY!!
The Coffee is beautiful, and don’t go past their deserts.. wow they are good!
All the girls who work there are super lovely.
Was disappointed to see their quote from Peter Singer had been taken down... I say they should put it back up! =)

First visit there, I went nuts and bought every single vegan option they had.
I made some sides to go with each one. Every dish was a hit.
I especially recommend the lasagne, the eggplant Parma and the tiramisu.

Hi vege2go team,
I received my order this morning and I have had the Meet Roll and the coconut and Lemon slice for lunch today - they were both so yummy that I must congratulate you guys! Amazing food and fast delivery. I will definitely be ordering through you again! So happy there is a company in Melbourne that make delicious meat-free ready meals!

Thank you so very much for my delivery of food this afternoon. I just got home from hospital a few days ago after a pretty big operation. My place looks like a bomb hit it, the kids are whingy and need baths but on the up side, I have a fridge full of your wonderful food. And that complementary chocolate mousse was just an absolute life saver tonight and very much appreciated.
I look forward to coming in for lunch again when I am on the mend.
Thank you again,

Keep up the good work. there should be more people in the world like you and your team.

"Delivery for Inner Melbourne" *****
So i'm on day 3 of my 5 days of lunches i ordered online from Vege2go.I'm so full! it's so tasty! it's cheap! and it's good for you! (well some dishes are a bit oily - but nothing that would stop me ordering it again). I've tried the stuffed capsicum, been salads, lentil soup and yet to try the sausage roll and semolina and beans in tomato sauce, but i can't wait! The serves are plenty....and it was delivered to my office at midday monday for $8! I haven't visited the restaurant, but will be ordering this (now with friends from work as well) in the future.

"Worth Checking Out" ****
Particularly if you like your Italian food it is comforting '2go' to a place where your dishes won't be meataminated. They have the aranchinis, lasagnas and eggplant pamiganas that you would expect. As I used to work near this place, I often indulged in the yummy salad combos or soups such as pumkin and ofcourse...minestrone. Very friendly and clean as can be.

"Home-made goodness" ****
The best thing about this place is getting homemade food such as the donuts, they are to die for! I am not a vegetarian person but i love the vegetarian food they have. The staff are very sweet and i was never disappointed when i went there. prices are pretty reasonable..

Delivered Products: Excellent!
I just had the vegan lasagne - it was so delicious! Products arrived at the time we expected them. Everything so far has been very, very nice! Flavour is very natural - like home made!
Many thanks for the sample of the apricot bar - not something I'd usually buy, but so yummy I may order one next time!

Testimonial for the Baby and Toddler Cooking Class *****
"The Baby and Toddler Cooking Class" is a must for any mum or dad looking for some new, healthy and most importantly, delicious recipes to prepare for their little ones.
The most exciting aspect of the class was being introduced and educated about a range of 'superfoods' which, as Maria, demonstrated, can be easily prepared and added to lots of dishes.
The recipes are easy to follow, and are very quick to prepare. An added bonus is that each recipe can be enjoyed by the entire family. My husband can't get enough of the broccoli, quinoa and parmesan salad!!
Maria is a fantastic demonstrator. She is passionate and knowledgeable about vegan food, and her enthusiasm is guaranteed to get you excited about cooking with healthy ingredients. She is also a skillful and generous cook, who is more than happy to pass on helpful tips and 'tricks of the trade' to make your own cooking so much easier.
Ultimately, a fantastic class in which you'll want to rush home and feed your family all your new and fabulous dishes.
Ps. The baby LOVES the food!!!!!!

I just wanted to let you all know, that your service has been brilliant & I've only used Vege2Go twice so far as I have been trying different healthy gluten free meal services. You guys have been great and I thought you should know.
Also, as newly pregnant woman, your minestrone soup is just AMAZING! Settled my food craving and beyond! Best minestrone I've ever had!
Hope this makes it to the owner/manager as well as I believe great service and good clean products should be made known!
Will surely be ordering again soon....

Just a quick note to say thank you for such delicious and convenient food. My husband and I can't stop raving about your food - those Arancini balls are so damn good! He just scoffed a risotto and we both loved your raspberry chocolate cake! Once more, many thanks.
