I have been to Bonta Vera several times. I am always so impressed with the food, prices and service. I feel like I am in the country, so relaxed and a perfect place to relax by the fire in winter or with a picnic blanket in the sun during summer. The cheese cakes are incredible!!!

Bonta Vera has become a dance to my taste buds. I have only been twice in this past month and in this month was my first experience trying Bonta Vera. I had wonderful service. Staff was/is fantastic! The food is just heaven in a mouthful. The cheesecakes are well typically what you would come for again and again. The food smells amazing as soon as you walk in the door. Bonta Vera is a very welcoming environment with an outstanding view of the mountains outside the deck. The fireplace is a place for comfort food and laughs amongst friends. Honestly even if it is a twenty minute drive away from the city of Newcastle it's still a worth it road trip. If you are taking a non vegan friend/family member to Bonta Vera it most definitely will not disappoint. The one thing I love about Bonta Vera is that if you are a vegan you don't have to have that worry in mind about animals being harmed in the process for all that yummy food. i love the atmosphere that Bonta Vera has. This little mighty cafe/restaurant has a home in everyone's hearts. :)

I eat at Bonta Vera at least once a week. The food is fresh and delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed with a beautiful view from the verandah. Personal favourites are the works burger, double cheeseburger, pulled 'pork' burger and the cheesecake. I can also highly recommend the milkshakes (with four plant milk options!!) and the peanut butter hot chocolate. John, the chef, is a master at what he does and a very kind, personable presence in the cafè.

I cannot recommend Bonta Vera highly enough, the food is absolutely amazing and really shows how delicious vegan food can be. Even my non-vegan friends loved it!
It's such a beautiful venue and so well priced. John the owner is legendary and amazing at what he does.
Also, try the peanut butter hot chocolate, it's to die for!
