This restaurant was Bury's only vegetarian eatery and was also very tasty and so was quite popular. However, for some unknown reason they chose not to open in the evenings which is why I imagine it has closed.

The food was very tasty and the atmosphere cosy and friendly. The décor had character and the prices were reasonable. Neither myself nor my friends are vegetarian but the place looked so nice we felt... More

I visited Josef's on Sunday, the food arrived reasonable promptly and whilst looking presentable lacked any real flavour.

The cafe needs to invest to improve the kitchen and seating area which looked tired and more so the loo upstairs.

On arrival at Josef's you know instantly from the name and the bright purple exterior that this place is going to be quirky, not another stale, shop fitted conglomerate & if that's what you want go to one of the tax evading high street chains! Josef's is a fun place, with great food the home made hummus and falafels are... More

I visited Josef's for lunch on Sunday. The cafe is nicely decorated in a casual, slightly eclectic way downstairs but a trip to the loo proved a bit of a eye-opener as it looks as if they have run out of money to complete the upstairs - very dirty and untidy - not really what you want to see in...
