I love it here, the best shop in Minehead. All the staff are lovely, helpful and friendly! Portion sizes in the cafe are brilliant too, tasty every time and takeaway is always faultless!

Good place this. Great choice of healthy option foods and ingredients in the shop. Go upstairs to the coffee house and take your pick from a good menu. A little worthy, maybe, for a carnivore such as me but the vegan Mrs P was in her element.

Fab choice - including gluten free. Fab choices of beverages. Excellent attentive service. Disappointed that we couldn't grab a salad or a slice of quiche or the like due to the time: we wished there'd been signs at the bottom of the stairs to let us know as we did have to get 2 disabled people up there too!

This place just makes me smile. It's colourful, happy, welcoming, and makes some of the best (no, the best) vegan and vegetarian food I've ever eaten. A great selection on the menu: superfood salads, mezze platters of mediterranean delights, burgers, soups - or choose from the array of quiches, flans and pies all freshly made in the kitchen that day,...

...... pssst, just got back from Minehead and the Toucan Wholefoods - Shop & Cafe in the Parade. Since Fizz went dairy, meat and virtually everything free, I have dutifully followed her upstairs from the shop where she would buy all sorts of goodies, and into the Café.

vegetarian and vegan cuisine. A variety of tasty and filling dishes served in a bright cafe above a health food shop in the center of minehead. Worth a special trip into Minehead to sample their menu

After a very long country walk, we were heading towards a national coffee shop which I knew didnt offer any vegan cake. I suggested toucan and I love it. Had soya lattes and carrot cake with frosting, amazing. Really friendly staff and such a lovely relaxing place to enjoy a lazy coffee. Love the food shop downstairs too.

This is a lovely place, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Massive selection of food, the portions are very generous. Good quality food but not expensive. If you visit make sure you pop into the shop below. Will visit again.
