The two Men working there was absolutely AMAZING! YaHi (I hope I spelled his name correctly) catered to my prissy two year old, all while taking great care of other customers with a smile. He made sure she tasted everything to find her perfect dish and she found two lol (red beans and Mac and cheese). I loved everything I tasted, but my absolute favorite was the kale.

Staff was really nice, but the food was disappointingly bland and took a long time to arrive. I ordered a vegan tunafish salad, which was served on a plate of mixed greens with no dressing. Maybe there are better options on the menu, but this one was pretty dry and flavorless.

I had the mock fish cakes brunch with kale salad, black beans, and cheese grits. I added walnut meat on top of my black beans and got a side of chips. This was sooo amazing. One bite in I was like Lord this is unreal how amazing it is. So good forgot to take a photo, but will definitely take one next time. Mock fish cakes with sauce- texture was perfection. Not too soft not too hard and maintained it’s form. I loved all the flavor without the saltiness of usual old bay seasoning. I’d definitely recommend them to a friend and try again. Kale Salad- your typical raw kale salad with addition of ALL the flava. This was very yummy I’d love it as is or with some pumpkin seeds, almonds and cranberries for a different flavor. But I have no complaints for having it as is. Black beans with Walnut Topping and Salsa and Chips- Really amazing. No overly salty flavor that you can get when ordering black beans. Perfectly seasoned with quite the killer salsa flavor. I loved it! The walnuts oh my goodness I legit was like HOW IS THIS SO GOOD YET RAW?! Then I remembered VEGAN FLAVA! They live up to their name definitely. The chips were good and not overly salty which again I love and appreciate. Cheese Grits- Again, I sound like a broken record but all that flava without some less than desirable saltiness or fake vegan product. I was soooo satisfied with how well it paired with the mock fish cakes. Truly enjoyed it. All in all everything was amazing. There is nothing that I would change. I have been trying to get to this place for years and now I have succeeded in doing so and already ready to go back and get it again. Amazing food, amazing service, and unparalleled FLAVA.

If you are plant based in Chapel Hill/Durham...you MUST give Vegan Flava Cafe a try. It is the best Vegan menu I have tasted in Chapel Hill. Everything I have tried has been absolutely phenomenal! The Sunday brunch is amazing. On top of the great food, the service is second to none. Can't say enough good things.

The two gentlemen were very informative of their menu and was able to shape a dish to accommodate my Dr Sebi alkaline vegan. Oh! I was PLEASANTLY surprised by the chickpea tuna wrap (in a collard)! I'll be back!

I would give this establishment 4 and 1/2 Stars. It's definitely worth a try! Although the location is a little different. It has its own appeal. B mock crab / fish cake is excellent. The mac and cheese is good. The quinoa kale salad is decent and the black beans with Walnut topping or delicious. I'm fairly new to the lifestyle of being a vegetarian. I've only been doing this for 6 months. Yet of the many places I've tried in various States I have to say this quaint establishment is worthy of it's rating

Definetely a "go to" spot for vegans...or for anyone looking to try something "different" good portions and delicious offerings. The Sunday brunch offers pancakes and cheese grits...I recommend the kale salad and the brunch menu.

The food is amazing! The fish cakes were great paired with the quinoa and kale. I’m so happy the food is also organic and non-gmo. Ask for dessert, they also have the best cupcakes, lemon and chocolate! Service was great, respectful of covid and my food was hot and fresh.

Best food ever! We so enjoyed our dinner! Very flavorful! We had ordered on line and when we got home received a call that they had by mistake not given us all we had ordered (I am not sure that we would have even noticed sine the portions are so generous). Someone drove all the way to our house to deliver the food. Fantastic service!! Highly recommended!!

First time trying this eatery, and were blown away. Everything we ordered was outstanding, and I’m not even Vegan. Potato salad - wow. Kale salad - boom! Tacos - just yum. Eat here.

Wow they don’t call it vegan flava cafe for nothing. The fish cakes were so good and flavorful. Even the rice and the kale salad were to die for. Convenient ordering and pick up, but there’s no way to leave a tip on the emailed invoices.

This place is such a wonderful addition to Valencia County . Everything from the staff , the food, the decor , & the new parking is great . Great prices for top notch meals and drinks . Probably the most beautiful place to have a meal or coffee .

I want to give Vegan Flava Cafe a #flameon shout out! I and my fellow sister had planned a luncheon at another vegan restaurant in Durham. Upon our arrival we were informed that it was closed. Being terribly disappointed, we looked up other vegan restaurants near by. Vegan Flava Cafe was near and it was one that was on my list to try out any way. We gave them a call first to make sure they were open. A very nice gentleman answered and let us know that they were only doing catering on this particular day. Disappointed to hear that news, the gentleman then said then said that he would be willing to save the day if we were open to the options that he had due to the catering he was doing. He offer tacos and smoothies to satisfy the sweet tooth we had as well. Yes! to "Taco Tuesdays!!" He was very accommodating and gave us exceptional service upon our arrival to Vegan Flava Cafe. Not only was the service great, but the precautionary measure to keep himself and us safe was great by meeting us at the car once we called to let him know we had arrived. Thank you for saving the day for two hungry Raleigh queens looking for a good vegan lunch! Many blessings to you and your business!!!

We loved this place!!! It’s a bit hard to find but make sure you do (it’s in Blue Dogwood market). Especially if you want vegetarian/vegan food in the area. Delicious, wholesome comfort food! We have to hand it to the friendly owner and staff that are working hard to run this small business

A really good vegan food, and I didn’t expect it after I saw the place itself. Highly recommend!
