This little place is the perfect place to go for a delicious meal at a reasonable price. Not only is the food pure vegetarian, most options are vegan friendly too. Located close to the beach on Beach Road at Christies Beach, Great Nature is a relaxed environment that also sells Taiwanese cooking products. The buffet has a choice of noodles or rice with the selection of five other vegetarian dishes which include curry tofu, sweet and sour tofu, eggplant, pumpkin and chickpea, and mixed vegetable. Other items on the menu include homemade spring rolls, delicious curry puffs, pappadums, and mouth watering veggie patties. Miso Soup is also available, as well as a selection of high quality green teas and freshly squeezed juice.

The owners are a family from Taiwan who have run the café for fourteen years. They are very friendly and have a great knowledge on vegetarian foods. The grocery has many products to choose from, all of which are vegetarian and of Asian culture. Meat substitutes are available as well as a wide selection of different sauces, soups, rice, and various snacks. Not only does this place sell food, it also sells a wide range of cute tea pots and cups. Each tea set is hand crafted and produced in different styles. There is a diverse selection of types of herbal teas, each one designed for specific needs.

The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, with a healthy amount of people wandering in around lunch time. Great Nature opens at 10am and closes at 6pm Monday to Friday, and is open from 10am to 5pm Saturday. For anyone who is interested in learning more about making tea and vegetarian food, the owner John and his wife Sarah are more than happy to give lessons in their kitchen out the back.
