Great service, yummy food and lovely surroundings! Recommend for vegetarian/vegan peeps and it’s not expensive. Didn’t get a sweet treat but they looked amazing.

A second visit to Plant showcased even more delicious options for lunch. I just wish they were open on Sundays too - I can’t wait to try the croissants and other breakfasts delights on a next visit to Cape Town.

Cute casual restaurant just off "vibey" Long Street with the best vegan food we ate in Cape Town during our week-long stay.
