Simple unfussy cafe/restaurant serving very tasty vegetarian food - so good that I could almost be convinced to become vegetarian. Unusual but great that it's not part of a chain and location is great, just off the main shopping street in Ipswich. Lovely staff who are happy to serve just coffee (& delicious cake) if cafe isn't too busy.

We have been coming to this establishment for several years. Popped in on Friday after a few months away. Lovely welcome from Mark and the team. Chose to have the vegan steamed cauliflower and mushroom pie, with lentil gravy, and mash. Also a salad or red cabbage served with the dish. Absolutely fantastic. Syrup and ginger cake plus coffee for... More

This is a true gem. Fabulous, freshly cooked vegetarian food which is to die for. My 10 year old is addicted to the dal. The owners and their staff are lovely and clearly passionate about their food. Daily menus are posted on Facebook to get you salivating before you arrive.

if all veggie food was like this, then i would happily convert! i have eaten here dozens of times over the last few years and never had a duff meal. in fact, when in there last week, someone left half their meal uneaten... after they had left, a café-wide discussion ensued..... how could it be that someone didn't like the...

Great food, feels like at home. I have been with my couple few times, cakes are delicious and everything tastes very healthy. I would love to be able to drink wine or go at night but they don't serve alcohol and is opened just for lunch. Friendly staff.

Fabulous, reasonably priced eat in or take out food. This little gem gets VERY busy at lunch time so go early or late or be prepared to queue. Bottles of water on the tables is a nice gesture and they are regularly refilled. The busy staff are friendly and helpful and the food is really very good so do try... More

This is a small, busy café, just off the main shopping street in Ipswich. The food is first class and a real treat for vegetarians. Only down side is that it gets very busy at lunchtime and you have to queue to order your food so if you are on your own, chances are there may be nowhere to sit... More

Very good locally prepared vegetarian food and very popular, judging by the number of people dining. Would recommend and would use again, daily menus posted on their FACEBOOK page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Museum-Street-Cafe/259407954135933?fref=ts
