New: Lekker Vegan Junk Food Coming to Kloof Street Soon

Lekker Vegan's gourmet veggie burgers, gatsbys, soft serve and more – just better and cruelty-free – opening in a second location at Palmhof Centre on Kloof Street

The future of vegan fast food dawned on the city in late 2017 when Lekker Vegan opened its doors in the East City Precinct area. Since then, they have impressed vegans (and carnivores) so much that they are opening a second branch in Kloof Street.

LEKKER VEGAN IN KLOOF STREET
They are in the process of building outdoor seating where they will be opening at the Palmhof Centre (the Checkers Centre) in the next few weeks. They are applying for a liquor license for the Kloof Street venue, so it’s sure to be popular with late night Kloof Street revellers. We hope that they will also stay open until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays as the Barrack Street branch does.

FROM AMSTERDAM TO CAPE TOWN
The eatery is owned by a Dutch family who ran a vegan restaurant in Amsterdam, where the idea of cruelty-free junk food is popular. Lekker Vegan showcases how tasty vegan food can be through popular take-out dishes. They brought the concept to Cape Town because they noticed a shift to plant-based diets. The owners claim that up to 80% of Lekker Vegan’s patrons are non-vegan.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
Sink your teeth into a juicy, crispy burger with all the trimmings, rest assured that it’s 100% cruelty-free. The “meat” products are made from soy and wheat protein, and contain no genetically-modified ingredients. The new lunch options include the Bunini Toastie, a panini-style toasted burger bun stuffed with vegan goodness. At R35, it’s a steal! The lunch wrap (a "wrappy") includes deep-fried crispy chewy potato and onion balls wrapped together with sauce and salad and is also available in a gluten-free option. Desserts include chocolate cheesecake and coconut-based soft-serve ice-cream.

Tip: Lekker Vegan is open until 3am on a Friday and Saturday.

The Bill: Food items range from R35 to R155

Opening Times: 12pm–10pm Sunday to Thursday. And 12pm to 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.
