I have to say, I enjoy every single bite of the breakfast meal in TVD. From waffles and Quesadillas to their wondeful healthy smoothies. Never thought trying Vegan would this be deliciously healthy. Servers are also great and always efficient, happy and polite. The Vegan...Dino has left the best impressions! Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely spot when you go to Davao.More

TVD made vegan food exciting back when the city had very limited options; basically a holy grail of the Davao vegan food scene. You simply cannot skip TVD during your Davao food crawls. Been visiting even before the pandemic, so glad they opened up again...after a lengthy renovation. This place introduced me to what a salad can be and should be! Aside from salads (which are never boring in this place), they also offer wholesome nourish bowls, rainbow wraps, superfood smoothies, mermaid lattes, and more vegan goodies. Everything is made fresh and from scratch. Staff are courteous and are accommodating when you want to change something from the dish (oil-free, nut-free, etc). Albeit small, the relaxing cozy interiors make up for it --- plus a cute dinosaur toy on each table, lol. Price is reasonable considering the freshness, quality, and quantity --- you'll be surprised how vegan food can be filling. My constants are the cheesemelt tortilla chips, homebrewed kombucha, and unbaked brownies, but basically everything on the menu is worth trying!More

Everything they serve is awesome. Worth every peso! My personal favorites are the tempeh blt sub and unbaked brownies. So good! The staff are so accommodating and friendly, too. They're very well-trained and it's obvious that they value what the cafe is all about, which...is promoting and advocating veganism, animal rights and environmentalism! Thank you, The Vegan Dinosaur!More

It is located at Marfori Heights Davao City, near Lachi's. Our 1st time experience being here was last Sept 5 2019 with my husband. They serve different menu using veggies thats why its called vegan. And if you're fan of eating vegetables this is the...right restaurant for you. But, expect that it's expensive. And the place is not huge nor wide. 🤔☺️More

I went to Vegan Dinosaur to taste test their food because I had a foreigner client visiting Davao, who was vegetarian. So I went with my neighbor. Much to our surprise, we TRULY enjoyed their dishes. Tasty, homemade, fresh... AMAZING. I ordered takeout for his...breakfast and lunch and HE LOVED IT. And he insisted to have dinner at the resto. And he went back again by himself after 2 days. I love their cold pressed juices. I love the mushroom pasta. Each dish is special <3More

The Vegan Dinosaur located at Marfori Heights was a pleasant surprise. I thought vegan food was either too salty (because it is tofu soaked in soy sauce) or too bland with not much seasoning or no fat or no salt. But I was wrong. Vegan...dinosaur served very tasty and healthy food. We had the Best Ever Bean Burger, looks soo good and tastes good. The spiced pasta with tomato and herb was good but I had to sprinkle some salt. The Meatballs pasta was soo yummy, I wanted to have more meatballs coz it wasn't meat but walnuts (?) We ordered BLT also but we were so stuffed we had it to go. but the acai berry for dessert was oh so yummy. If going vegan meant eating food this good, I should have gone vegan a long time ago. We'll definitely go back and try the other things in the menu.More

From the time i ate vegetables presented to me by the friendly staff of this Vegan shop, I learn to appreciate eating vegetables... it may be vegetables but the Taste was not compromised... I ordered a burger Patty in a burger bread but the taste...for me was even better than the ordinary beef Patty. I am now starting a Healthier life by starting to eat healthy Food. BUT wait theres more... at least this time I can say I am not contributing in the killing of innocent cows... Di ba masaya!More

The granola parfait is 🥰🥰🥰. This place is legit #vegan #soymetal. They serve great breakfast and they have a selection of granolas and snack in jars to go. It's a bit pricey but it's definitely worth every penny!

Well worth visiting here, the food is great, its a lovely restaurant and the menu is awesome. A real beacon of light in Davao where food choices for vegans and vegetarians is quite limited. Cannot recommend this place enough - fantastic!

The Vegan Dinosaur is one of the few vegan restaurants in Davao City, located in Marfori, just beside the park. The food is really good & fresh, but a little expensive for Davao. They don't have wifi to encourage customers to talk to each other,...and limited parking is available on the side street. Wish they honor credit cards since their price points are high. But overall, it's really good. I hope there are more restaurants offering healthy food on Davao City.More

Filipinos love meat in all it’s forms so can a cafe in Marfori Heights serve up vegan fare? It’s a wholehearted yes! An extensive menu ranging from breakfast to burgers, juices to smoothies. Good portions, plated beautifully. With some improved service, the addition of coffee...to the menu and refining of flavours The Vegan Dinosaur will shine. Bring cash and take a window seat for people watching!More
