Welcome to Leafy Greens

Leafy Greens is a Johannesburg vegetarian restaurant with a difference. Located on a blissful organic farm in Muldersdrift, we’re a world away from the concrete jungle. Our café is open from 9am to 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday, and has free Wi-Fi so you can nourish your brain as well as your body. Mondays and Tuesdays, you are welcome to make an appointment to shop.


Our Café

A neighbour of the renowned Casalinga Restaurant, Leafy Greens Café is not only changing the way people enjoy food, but also providing them with a holistic plant-based culinary experience.

Drawing inspiration and flavours from our organic produce, our farm-to-table dishes provide an opportunity to eat mouth-watering meals while being fully conscious of where your food is coming from. This is wholesome food for the body and soul, served in the comforting atmosphere of our rustic cafe.

Our menu offers a wide selection of handcrafted breakfast and lunch options, or opt for the spectacular buffet from 11am. Our shop stocks a range of vegan health, beauty and food products so you can enjoy the Leafy Greens experience at home, too. Leafy Greens enjoys the unique advantage of being located on the same farm that grows the delicious produce we use in our kitchen. Zero food miles, and loads of natural goodness.

A Lifelong Passion for keeping people healthy

At Leafy Greens we support sustainable, organic agriculture and responsible business practices. This reflects our deep respect and love for the planet and for those around us. We use organic ingredients wherever possible, and guarantee that our products are free from refined sugars, dairy and added preservatives. Better yet, they are mostly gluten-free.

Doctors and nutritionists agree that a mostly plant-based diet is one of the best steps you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint, and at Leafy Greens saving your health and saving the planet go hand in hand. So join us and make a difference in your own life, and the lives of others.

By eating from the Earth, and following a mostly plant-based diet, we are eating at the start of the food chain. This allows us to eliminate a lot of the diseases, parasites and viruses that can affect carnivores further along the food chain. Vegetarians and vegans harness more of the Sun’s energy and gain access to the minerals our bodies so desperately need.

Our mission is to bring people back to a life lived in harmony with nature by eating living foods. To eat simply again and rediscover the joys of unprocessed ingredients. To savour the beauty of each fruit and vegetable, and to bring out their full flavour and health benefits.

Dried fruits, nuts and more vegetables than you can imagine are used to whip up the most delectable dishes full of flavour and zest, leaving you satisfied and with a delicious feeling of wellbeing. This is not about missing out, but rather finding tasty alternatives for all of your favourite dishes – even pizza.

Vital nutrients plus vivid tastes add up to a feast for your senses, and a boost to your longevity and energy. Vegetarian dishes can be created for every meal of the day, and can include vegan-friendly organic desserts and drinks too.

Eating with the Season

One of the standout aspects of the Leafy Greens approach to nutrition is our ability to serve fresh seasonal foods that are in season.

Eating foods that are in season ensures the freshness of the produce, delivering maximum nutrition with minimum chemical preservatives. Freshly picked fruits and vegetables will fill you with energy directly from the soil and sun. Local seasonal produce also helps to sustain the economy and foster local development. What’s more, your food travels far fewer miles to get to your plate so it reaches you in exactly the state that nature intended it to be eaten!

Our friendly staff have an extensive knowledge of the fruits and vegetables that we grow and can tell you exactly what will be going into your meal. This is no run-of-the-mill restaurant. Instead, we’re happy to against the grain to help you enjoy new dining experiences in the company of the Leafy Greens team who will make you feel as though you’re being invited into the home of old and dear friends.

Sharing the knowledge &

Escaping the City

Workshops and courses let us share what we have learnt over the years. Good eating and healthy living are not just reserved for the restaurant but can easily be enjoyed at home as well. Day-long courses are hosted at our vegetarian restaurant in Johannesburg (Muldersdrift) and we invite all who want to learn vegan cooking, to enjoy a day of healthy eating and healthy living. Regardless of your level of cooking expertise you will soon be creating fabulous vegan meals from our recipes. We want organic dining to be as inclusive as possible. Everyone’s invited!

There is nothing quite like escaping the craziness city, even if it is just for a few hours, and taking the drive out to the farm on which Leafy Greens is located. Swap traffic jams for sugar-free jam, congestion for improved digestion and load-shedding for feeling lighter on your feet. Simply turning into the road that leads to the oasis of peace and calm that is Leafy Greens is bound to lower your blood pressure, and attune your senses to all the possibilities that an organic farm offers.

We have wonderful upcoming events
