Very cheap eats: Vego & Love'n It, Adelaide

An Adelaide institution, Vego & Love’n It is known for its tasty burgers and chilled out vibe. Situated above a record store, the tiny cafe is charmingly furnished with mismatched chairs, mosaics and kitsch decorations.Burgers are the main feature of the menu, and there are loads to choose from – tempeh, chickpea, tofu, Mexican, Mediterranean, Thai and more. The burgers all feature loads of salad items on top of no-meat patties.

The Vamburger is a take on the classic Aussie burger and features a thin croquette-style patty of potato. Also squeezed in between the toasted brown bread is tomato, beetroot, lettuce, alfalfa and just the right amount of tahini and tomato sauce. The combination of all the ingredients makes for an incredibly tasty burger that feels decadent without being too heavy.

Vego & Love’n It burgers are famous, and not just for their vegetarian and vegan credentials – they are very large. So, although a burger might set you back $9, it’s filling enough to eat as a main meal.

If your appetite isn’t up to it then soups, wraps and café-style treats like muffins are also available.
