The Big Love Cafe

One of the best things about coming to Chenrezig for lunch is sharing the space with our precious resident Tibetan lama Geshe Tsultrim and our beautiful Sangha (nuns and monks). We love seeing new faces and look forward to your visit.

Your local Buddhist cafe

The Big Love Cafe could not have asked for a more auspicious start with Lama Yeshe himself cooking for students when the centre first started. The tradition of providing delicious food in a mindful and loving manner continues to this day. Our café provides wholesome vegetarian food in a comfortable environment with peaceful rainforest views. With generous indoor and outdoor spaces, this is a natural spot to relax and connect with other people at the centre. Enjoy a hearty meal, our traditional brewed chai tea, real coffee, or a slice of delicious homemade cake.

Food is freshly prepared by the kitchen team each day. As we cook to specific numbers, please book lunch 24 hours in advance so we can prepare a meal for you. All our food is vegetarian. A vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free option is also available; please request at the time of booking.
