Green Time

Vegan Eats on Fort Street

With delicious vegan food, a communal space that is friendly and open plus an energetic and inspiring host at the centre of it all - Green Time is so much more than an eatery; it's a space to share ideas and dig into great food while helping the environment. 

Green Time was born out of a passion project by Kitty Lin - a young former lawyer, who, after attending her first climate change conference decided that something needed to be done immediately to help the environment. Her idea to start a vegan eatery began as a side project but with the support of like-minded friends and family, this space now has an inviting home on Fort Street. 

Everything served at Green Time is made from scratch by Kitty and her incredible kitchen staff - right down to the barbecue sauce on their addicting burgers. Before the cooking process begins, Kitty and her team research every aspect of the ingredients to ensure they are environmentally friendly - along with being 100% devoid of animal products - and of course, delicious. There's no cooking by frying, refined sugar, animal products or peanuts used on the menu and everything is sourced with a grow-your-own mentality - most of the waste from the eatery is either recycled or put in a compost. 

The menu at this lunch and dinner spot is eclectic, fun and easy to eat. With everything from big gourmet burgers to noodle bowls or soups of the day, fresh salads to raw cakes, tofu rolls to specialty drinks, the thread tying this menu together is tasty, moreish meals that you'll want to eat over and over again. 

Here's what we tried and loved on our first visit: 

The soup of the week - a tasty and warming corn chowder served with crispy croutons and potato salad. 

The super satisfying 'Sexi Mexi' burger which has a black bean and beetroot patty and is finished with guacamole, salsa and caramelised onions. 

And for dessert we were spoilt with a decadent, 'Pineapple Lump' raw cake and a light and creamy blueberry baked cheesecake.
