This place is well priced, can get a little crowded in the entrance sometimes. Good for a quick wrap lunch, tasty, clean and sweet facilities. Recommend creating your own.

I followed the reviews on trip advisor to this place looking for an alternative to my usual joint to eat during my regular work-trips to Canterbury. This place is awesome!!. The wraps are full to the brim of delicious, fresh, well thought out recipes. Loads to choose from and something for everyone. Make your own wrap too if you like.... More

Dropped in for lunch for the first time and was very impressed with the range of fresh ingredients. I opted for the hummus and falafel salad which was lovely. I thought the price was reasonable and they were so friendly. I will be visiting again.

This was a find. Recommended in the Rough guide and a great place to visit for a quality wrap or soup. The owners care about providing good food at a reasonable price.the coffee and the Mexican wrap was very good. So good to find an independent place for a coffee and snack whilst sightseeing. Highly recommended.

I've been here a few times now. I really love the hummus and falafel wrap. Good wholesome and filling food.

What a great find in the centre of Canterbury. Really good value with a 'meal deal', and really good coffee. The building itself is quirky and old, and the upstairs seating attractive and all clean. Sit by the window and you may be lucky like us to have a busker playing outside to accompany your lunch.

I have only visited the once but my wrap was nice and the price was reasonable as the ingredients seemed good quality and the portions were a good size. The staff were friendly too. I went for the lunch meal deal but I didn't really need it as the wraps are satisfying enough on there own.

Good for a quick easy lunch, the service is a bit hap hazard however and the staff are a bit pushy to keep the que moving, also a large number of wasps flying around the restaurant, query weather or not they have a wasps nest?

Me and my sisters popped in for lunch. I had a large salad, all very fresh and a good selection but a bit overpriced at almost £6 (eat in). Both sisters had hot wraps/sandwiches which looked and smelt delicious. Both were very happy with their choice. We sat upstairs and loved the quirky décor. The staff were very friendly and... More

We have been here a few times, great little restaurant, the food is always fresh and the baguettes are very tastey for a take away snack. Nice variety on the menu too.
