So very good

My second visit on a journey from the midlands to the south west. Fabulous food in a friendly low key atmosphere. I just wish I lived closer

We have been going to feast for sometime now, and are never disappointed. If you are looking for exceptional vegetarian food look no further. Alternatively, if you just want morning coffee with seriously good cake you won't be disappointed with the choice or portions.

My absolute favourite place to eat. Quiet, quaint, absolutely beautiful food, always a wealth of options, always the option to try something a little different (no boring veggie burger/veggie lasagne options here!) friendly efficient service and a really sweet little building and courtyard. Veggie options only but hearty and good enough to turn the most dedicated meat-eater! I'd happily eat... More

We dropped into the cafe toward the end of the day. Although food had been packed away, they did not hesitate to rustle up a delicious plate of lentil and honey roasted veg, along with halloumi cheese. Simply delicious! Friendly service, cosy bistro. Loved it.

Wonderful food, warm and friendly atmosphere in a lovely old building. This is simply the best food you will ever eat, anywhere - even hardened carnivores will be impressed if not converts! Excellent coffee and yummy cheese scones.

I met a friend here for lunch and despite working in Ilminster had no idea it was there. From the outside it doesn't look like a restaurant so I can see how I missed it. Inside is very homely and welcoming with some amazing cakes on display. We took a seat in the back room by the fire and it... More

We had fabulous vegetarian food. Such friendly efficient service . Reasonably priced. We sat inside in one of the cosy seating areas but could have sat outside in the courtyard. Not been here before but will certainly return.

Helpful staff for advising what I could eat, very flexible on their menu and added more if gluten products were omitted. Quirky with personality and tasty filling food. Have returned a few times and will visit again.
