An environmentally conscious, vegan café that celebrates our beautiful world in all its forms, Bonobo Cafe is the embodiment of optimism and unbridled joy. Is it any wonder they made it to the top 5 in the 2022 Hospitality Awards?

We thought not. After all, it's only human to feel rejuvenated and upbeat after glancing at their bright pink walls and tables, the luscious ferns and blooming flowers that adorn the place and the natural light that streams in from all directions. Their food also follows suit with a range of gorgeously presented, luscious eats that sing good vibes throughout the day.

Fuel up in the morning with a healthy, nutritious and delicious brekkie. Keep it classic with a Big Love Breakfast that includes smoky beans and tofu scramble or amp up the sweetness with an almost-too-pretty-to-eat Gratitude Bowl. Later in the day, you might want to graze on a mushroom and polenta stack or plant power plate to restore your energy without feeling too full.

As for dinner, go wild with towering burgers, tofu bites, loaded nachos or exciting salads that really pack in the taste and texture with hoards of slaw, pickled veggies, tofu, nuts and dressing. Reversing our expectations of vegan food, Bonobo has achieved what it came out here to do. Meat, who?
