Welcome to The Lotus-Heart Vegetarian Restaurant where we strive to supply a special and peace-filled inner-city dining experience


The Lotus-Heart is separately owned and operated by students of Sri Chinmoy. We aspire to design a small corner of the world that is overwhelm with the spirituality and philosophy of our meditation teacher and to offer a peaceful oasis to inspire the heart. The Lotus-Heart is committed to conscious living and healthy eating, striving to create a global cookery naturally. We use the freshest ingredients, locally grown and organic where realizable, natural sweeteners, vegetarian and plant-based cheese, and a selection of plant mylks for beverages. In addition to vegetarian fare, our menu is predominantly wholefood plant-based with ample gluten-free options and choices for those on raw food diets. By request and if possible we are happy to cater for specific allergy needs. Children are most welcome and we have a children’s menu and high chairs available
