The Greenside Café is proud to announce that they are winners of the People's choice award for the best vegetarian menu in Johannesburg for both 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Greenside Café is encouraging people to "Go Green, Be Veg and Save the Planet." The impact that a vegetarian, and even better, a vegan diet has on our planet is profound. It reduces the carbon footprint because the meat and dairy industry require deforestation, huge amounts of water, most of the world's crops (for animal feed), antibiotics and hormones to produce meat and dairy. Animal agriculture uses up to 70% of the available clean water on earth.
Greenside Café owner, Dimitri Gutjahr, prides himself in his food combinations and claims that his customers love the way they feel, and the abundant energy they receive after eating at the Greenside café.
"My biggest compliment" he says, "is the number of non-vegetarians who come to the restaurant because they love the taste and freshness of the food. They feel it's delicious and know it's healthy".
IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SAVING OUR PLANET, we have to change. The Greenside cafe mission is to show people that the vegan diet is delicious, exciting and filled with endless variety. We are what we eat and the Greenside Café is all about health and happiness.
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Albert Einstein.
