We were pleasantly surprised to find all the vegetarian and vegan options in this restaurant. It was easy for us to make a choice because of the English menu. We both found our vegetarian meal to be absolutely delicious! The owner and the Taiwanese waiter were doing everything to make us feel welcome and have a relaxed diner. We recommend... More

We found this using near me now on Trip Advisor when looking a somewhere for lunch. Menu is quite limited but I had a panini (just advertised as 'panini') so make sure you ask the content, my partner had the udon noodle dish which was also nice. Marked down as selection wasn't great and the meals we did go for... More

Dropped by from the street. Had the Vegan Platter and the Excellent Vegan Platter. Both delicious. The restaurant is upstairs so you can people watch while eating. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The toilets are very futuristic!

We found this café by walking by in search for lunch. Great location. Fish and chicken specials were flavorful. Sandwiches were cheesy and delicious. Coffee was delicious and strong. All in all a great meal. Staff spoke English. Sound track was great rock music.

Had a vegan platter and an Elk platter. The vegan platter with tofu and grilled vegetables had a sauce that was kind of sweet but not bad. The elk platter was very good. Beatles songs played the whole time we ate.

Had lunch here whilst walking round Hiroshima. My wife is a vegetarian and there were several options for her. She had vegetarian Japanese platter which was good but some of the flavours were a bit strong. I had a toast id, part;y because for some reason I didn't get the full menu. My toast ice was fine so it wasn't... More

Above shops, on the first floor ,this cafe is a great find. Our second visit and this time we had lunch time fish and chips that were freshly cooked while we waited. A real gem.

Maybe not one of the most famous places in Hiroshima, but not far from the park and museum, ELK offers interesting food in a quiet place, adorned with some details like special food for vegetarian/vegan people, music, and a nice decoration. It's not very busy, so it's a relaxing place.

Thank Alberto J
