About
Everything we serve is vegan, mostly Filipino and some are local favorites. We started out as a home-based delivery and after a year of moving around, we opened a really small space in Trinidad street, and now on the main road of Quezon Avenue. Much spacious and accessible for local veggie lovers and vegan tourists.

I always eat out here a lot because the food is really delicious, healthy and affordable. Everything is value for money. Artsy environment if your an artist you will appreciate it. . Wayback, they used to offer books for free reading while waiting for your food or your just hanging out. Guess, they need more space for customers. I hope they expand more space cause lately, it's getting too crowded.

It's one of the most chilling place despite of the busy streets of Lucena City. They serve Vegan food. It's good to know that there is a place that vegan people can eat. They have friendly staff especially the one who served the cumquats. He is so pleasing.

I love the kare kare with vegan bagoong but my favorite is their nachos. Health buffs would love it here because they are plant-based. They must improve the restroom though.

Our generation today is often attracted in things uncommon. Located right in the heart of Lucena City, Reasons Café is a perfect venue to discover something new while enjoying ‒ surprising you with different deceiving food options while surrounded by diverse forms of art. The distinctiveness of Reasons Café is not just the look of the restaurant alone, but also the food they are serving. Reasons Café is a vegan restaurant ‒ meaning, they do not use any animal products or by-products. They refer tofu as “vegan meat”. You will see in their menu creative options like Vegchon Kawali, which at first, can be thought as a meat option because of the famous dish lechon kawali – make sure to look twice! Comparing the tastes of both the original and vegan version, we cannot really tell the difference. Reasons Café scored a good point here. Moreover, there are a variety of dishes to choose from. They also have vegan versions of Classic Filipino favorites like Sizzling “Sisig”, Relyenong “Bangus”, and many other tasty options. As we went inside the restaurant, the first thing we noticed was the interior. The ambiance of the place will relax you and make you feel yourself at home. Tattoo canvasses, traditional Filipino instruments, hall of fame for famous vegan celebrities, and Hindu and Sanskrit-related graphic arts are all displayed together making the place unique in aesthetic value. The artworks mentioned are all created and brought together by the owner and her friends. Axed tree-trunks and up cycled stuff are also used as seats and tables for dining. Adding to the wellness of the ambiance is the surround sound music. Another remarkable feature of Reasons is its value of being environmentally-responsible. For take outs, it is either you bring your own container, or pay the extra fee for the take-out box. Much of the plastic waste industries produce is dumped to the ocean – and in line with the establishment’s values, zero tolerance to plastic use is observed. Summing it all up, Reasons Café is a good restaurant. However, not all people will appreciate veganism. You have no other choice but to explore this variety of food. On the lighter side, you won’t have problem choosing what to pick. The well-versed staff will explain you the different dishes and help you come up with the food of your choice. If you are a vegan or just trying to eat healthy, this restaurant is a perfect one for you. The foods are not just healthy, but delicious too! They also offer entertainments like live music depending on their schedule. The restaurant also has an event called Luntiang Biyernes which happens every Friday, where they sell different vegan products just in the outside part of the place. Reasons Café is open Mondays to Saturdays, starting from 11AM until 9PM. So if you are thinking to try Reasons, do not think twice! Invite your family and friends. Try it out yourself and taste something new.

A friend took my new-found aunt and cousin to Reasons where we had a fabulous meal. My favorite by far in all my 3 weeks dining in the Philippines. Thanks for a great dinner! And thanks to my friend for finding my aunt and taking us here!

My boyfriend and I came from London to visit my fam who live in Lucena. It was my boyfriends first time to the Philippines but we are both veg. I was so happy that he had a chance to try some Filipino classics thanks to Reasons. I dare even say it taste better than the meat originals. The owner was there that day and she was so accommodating. I just wanted to say a big thank you to her for doing what she does. Bringing veganism to a country that so desperately needs a break from their insane daily meat intake.. introducing an alternative HEATHLIER lifestyle to our local community. It made me happy to see how busy the place was during the lunch service. We had sisig, vegcheon, bibimbap, tofu kebab, turon (omg..), cashew blueberry cheesecake. And then bought some organic produce from the small local farmer they support in the front of the store. Yum!! I wish the best for her business!

Travelling from Bicol to Manila, we dropped by Reasons Cafe in Lucena City. It is located in a busy food street, along Trinidad St. Reason's Interior is one of the reasons you should eat here. It is cozy and homey, with wood dining sets and cosmic artworks at the wall. Rating the food (we had VegChon--- vegetarian lechon), it is tasty and simply plated. Rice serving is small tho, but the extra Java rice that we ordered filled us up just the same! The desserts that we tried (vegan blueberry cheesecake and chilled taho) are just ok, there's a lot of room for improvement. The blueberry cheesecake was too sweet and it's base was too soft. The chilled taho is good, but not soft as it should be. For a group of 4, with vegan meals and desserts and calamansi juice drinks, a check of 900 pesos is not bad for a compassionate meal.

Reason's is a charming hole in the wall with interesting and delicious vegan food. They go by a "special of the day" format which keeps things interesting, though they also have a regular menu. I'm not an expert, but considering they serve vegan food, their prices are very affordable. They shatter the notion that food without animal products is bland and boring - no wonder vegans from neighboring towns and provinces drop by. The place welcomes non vegan clients (like me) without judgement and encourages them to try new things. As a regular customer, i also visit the place for the positive atmosphere and the owner's cheerfulness. Desserts sell out pretty fast when theyre available. Patrons really look forward to them and reserve them in advance, so you better follow their Facebook page for updates and weekly specials

Reasons is a good take on eating veg. Who would have thought veggies would taste just as good? My daughter loves their chicken burger, little did she know its not really chicken in there 😄. They have limitted seating though, call in advance.

I like how they encourage their customers to try something new by introducing food from diverse cultures. The food tastes great. I'm not into vegetables, but I was amazed at how tasty they actually were. The texture was also amazingly a lot like meat although slightly less chewy (kinda soft, but in a good way). The owner was also pretty accommodating when it comes to explaining what the ingredients of the food were and how they they were made. Also, cool decor and tableware.
