This establishment run by Wendy and Steve is by far one of the worlds best kept vegan food secrets. The only truly vegan restaurant that I’ve been to that is similarly passionate about vegan dishes...

Amazing food, drink, gallery, hosts & view. Not to miss!
A must do. Beautiful re-built space after the original burnt to the ground. Absolutely fabulous views of Apia harbor. Trees and gardens alive with birds, which is unusual for Apia. Have the mixed vegetarian curry plate made with locally grown foods. Good pottery for sale, but the art is so-so. Friendly owners.
