Nice vegetarian selection!

I have fond memories of the salad center or whatever it was named 20 odd years ago. I have eaten here a few times in the past year with a different owner each time. The kitchen team are youngsters and make good food! There has always been a good selection of salad and vegetarian delights from... read more

We are regulars at The Salad Centre and have kept going back because of the quality of the food. The service is friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is usually very tasty and great value to boot. However, our last visit was slightly dissappointing hence the review... The service was still with a smile and we were made... More

I have been visiting this cafe/restaurant for many years even though I am not a vegetarian. Until recently it was run by the lovely Nick and Sue but now has a new team in place. As before, the food is tasty, imaginative, very reasonably priced and pleasantly served. My lunch today was a delicious mushroom gnocchi with two salads included... More

Upon entering the salad centre I was immediately greeted with a very warm welcome (which I feel is very important)! Like other reviewers I'm also not a vegetarian but I felt my meal to be very tasty, fresh and was a fair priced unlike come high street coffee-house/cafe. Excellent coffee and was very impressed on the design on the top... More

By far my favourite veggie/vegan café in Bournemouth. Food is fresh and delicious and the staff are always very friendly. It has recently come under new management and I can see lots of new additions to the menu, I look forward to trying them all!

We came across this restaurant by chance as we were looking for somewhere to eat in Boscombe before the Bournemouth v Ipswich match. We are not vegetarians but thought it looked interesting so gave it a go. We found the choice of food to be excellent and freshly prepared, the guy serving at the counter (Stelios) was very helpful and... More

Although, like your other reviewers, I am a meat eater I always make a point of visiting the Salad Centre when visiting relatives who live nearby. Delighted that the standards have been maintained by the new owner and the food is always tasty and different. I only wish we had a branch in Norfolk - highly recommended

Disappointing , not the flavoursome selection of salads or hot meals, prices seems quite high in comparison to our precious visits.
