I've now been here a couple of times and always think this cafe could be so much better.

The veggie and vegan food is amazing. Selections are seasonal and tasty. Staff are friendly and attentive. The only thing lacking is atmosphere, needs music, soft furnishings, colour or something as somewhat reminiscent of school hall.

It wasn't anything amazing and I was hugely disappointed for a top 10 restaurant to look that run down! However cheap and quick was one of the only good things about this place!

I have eaten here 2-3 times a week for... a couple of years, I think. The food is always delicious. I'm not vegetarian, and I've have never been disappointed, and no, I don't have a vested interest. I encourage expansion to Norwich!

run by nice people who probably own the business snd have meals such as lentil curry which are delicious and very enjoyable. I'm not a vegetarian but this food is refreshingly different.

This is a vegetarian place ,ideal for lunch with different interesting dishes every time. The tomato and spinach lasagne I had was so scrumptious, I thought about having a second helping!!!! It camewith a green salad and dressing....There's always a jug of water on the table and the people who run it are lovely.
