“Healthy organic vegan food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I am always pleasantly surprised to come across a restaurant serving healthy vegan food in Ireland, let alone a small town. We had the option between two main dishes (one vegan and one vegetarian) and several salads. The vegan main dish was a sweet potato stew which tasted great. I enjoyed the salad made with potato and green beans, but I didn't care too much for the chickpea/bean salad. The hummus and bread were very good. There is also a store connected to the cafe selling a rather large selection of organic produce.

“Vegetarian bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

If you are looking for a really healthy meal or snack or just a great coffee at great value prices, then try the Happy Pear on Greystones main street. It is a vegetarian cafe with a wonderful vibe, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Seating is either upstairs or outside in front of the cafe, great in the sunshine as the cafe gets sun from late morning onwards.

The menu changes daily with a choice of two soups and two main courses. There is an extensive salad bar, and a good selection of cakes and sweet things. The food is delicious.

The restrooms are decorated with inspiring quotes, a nice touch!

The attached shop sells a comprehensive range of fresh fruit and vegetables (mostly organic), chilled products and dry goods such as pulses, flour, seeds, nuts, dried fruit and cereals to name a few.

The only drawback is the lack of facilities for those with mobility issues - indoor seating is up a rather narrow flight of stairs and the only other option is to sit outdoors, lovely on a fine day, not when it's tipping down. Otherwise take part in the Greystones experience with a soup, a coffee or hot chocolate and spend some time in this little bit of heaven
