Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I were taken to lunch by another couple, and whilst I did not know what expect I enjoyed the experience. The food was lovely and being there for lunch I expected a coffee or perhaps two, however the waitress explained very politely...that that the cafe did not serve coffee. I was offered a very acceptable coffee alternative. I have not commented on price as I did not pay for our lunch.More

A few years back I had gotten disappointed with this Cafe/Restaurant but they have sorted any issues and it's great again. We had the most divine lunch there this month. The salad was so fresh and filled with goodness and flavour. The fact thats its...all organic makes one appreciate it even more as it's all total goodness. The dressings are all vegan and made fresh, the flavours are wonderful and their salad bar has really picked up. I totally enjoyed the raw treats with a beautiful Teeccino Coffee can be made with their home made Almond Milk. Would love to see some of the old cheesecakes back again though. I believe this is the cleanest Restaurant in town or beats anything I can think of anywhere. The toilets are always kept clean. We love to shop from their Organic produce when we're there too. The staff are friendly and the owner is a delight. Thank you all so so much and everything you do to make this world a better place.More

A total favourite for lunch. I love the vibe, the products we can buy for home use, the juices, and the yummy vegetarian pizzas

Simple, high quality dishes and teas. Divine (complimentary) cucumber lemonade on a hot day. Beautiful presentation, an atmosphere of quiet hum, and an outlook onto the trees in the square. A social enterprise as well. Given the whole package this is true value for your...spend.More

First visit here for a meal, although a regular customer at the organic shop which is also part of this enterprise. An excellent meal, cooked and served by school students. This shop/cafe is a charity, teaching local school children to cook and serve food, and...putting all its profits into that mission. Whether or not you normally follow a vegan diet, you will find delicious food served in a calm, informal, family-friendly atmosphere. Drinks are juices and smoothies. Very clean, very efficient, very professional, very friendly. Note: evening meals only on Thursdays, but serves food in the afternoons on other days....More

Friendly, casual cafe atmosphere in amongst a food retail area, bright and clean. Their plant-based menu is so delicious - these folks do amazing things with flavour and colour!!! Part of the business is about teaching plant-based cooking skills for secondary school students which is...pretty cool. Only downside is that they aren't open Friday.....More

I've been here for lunch several times now, and have had consistently good food. The bread is fresh and tasty, the soups are delicious and the salads full of flavour. The cheesecake desserts are excellent too. All vegan food,not that I am vegan, but it...is just so good I hardly notice there are no animal products. Only downside for me is no proper coffee, but the herbal teas are great. Lovely people too with great service and you can buy your quinoa or other organic products for home cooking as well.More

I am somewhat sad to have to post this review as I truly like the whole concept of this cafe, its very professional and does much to help the community. A wonderful assortment of organic goodness, however an area it is falling down is the...size of the meals are just not big enough for the money charged.The salads in particular at $14.00 for a large size is disappointing, its a small salad at best. Whether the ingredients are organic or not, its just not worth $14.00 and sadly I feel I'd rather go elsewhere. The green leafy salad has a tofu in it which is tough and chewy., not enjoyable. The cashew dressing is a highlight, but please guys, review what you are serving. More variety even in your salad. Go around some places and check out their salad specialities, you will see yours honestly is not going to keep people coming. It just becomes unaffordable for people, as its not satisfying and one is left feeling they need to get something else to eat and hence feeling annoyed at its lack. Hope this makes a difference as its a great place I'd hate to see go under.More

Happy accident wandering into this restaurant for a lunch break on my own and found myself in vegan heaven with their menu options. I went for their loaded toast, all elements well seasoned. Calm peaceful environment ebony in the middle of lunch rush.

I have been many times to Wholegrain Organics and never been disappointed. I like all the food served. However I do have my favourite dishes - the mushroom pizza, the toast meal with scrambled tofu, vegan soft serve coconut ice cream topped with carob and...nuts and kreamy kale smoothies. The restaurant has a simple decor and a clean white wholesome ness about it. Scrupulously clean and welcoming, the staff are friendly but not intrusive. As it is also a shop you can browse through all the organic fresh foods and environmentally friendly cleaning products! I love Thursday nights when high students from local schools wait on the tables. Such a great idea!More

If you are in Palmerston North, go here! Beautiful space with a great concept (teaching 12-19 year olds how to cook sustainable, organic, healthy food) and not to mention fantastic food! A friend and I had the scrambled tofu and the shitake mushrooms - absolutely...delicious. Presentation was lovely, service was great and really good to see such a community spirit.More
