A group of extremists allegedly stormed into a Georgian vegan joint called Kiwi Cafe and began hurling grilled meat, sausages and fish.

The cafe in the Georgian capital of Tblisi was screening English-language episodes of Rick and Morty when a group of about 15 men allegedly stormed in with the meat and fish.

"It all started when they came into the cafe speaking and laughing loudly and didn't care when we asked them to be quiet and not to disturb the people who came to watch the film," Kiwi Cafe wrote on Facebook.

"Continuing to act loudly and disturbingly, they pulled out some grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at us...

"We said that they must leave because this is a vegan cafe; and because it is our place and we don't want them to provoke a conflict with their behavior.

"But they didn't leave and started yelling, laughing, and talking to us sarcastically."

The cafe has several kiwis, a kiwifuit and a kiwi riding a bicycyle with kiwifruit for wheels painted on the outside.

According to its Facebook page, it is a non-profit community vegan cafe where people who care about animals, social issues and the environment can "meet, share ideas and find solutions together".

The cafe called the attackers "neo-Nazis who support fascist ideas". It alleged the group had previously come to the cafe and caused trouble.
