If I could choose anywhere in Somerset to go for a fresh, healthy, tasty vegetarian lunch, then I would head here. A treat every time I go to Minehead :)

I actually live just over the road from this place and all I can say is thank god! I have been a vegetarian since I was 4 years old and have recently turned vegan and this place is amazing. The food is delicious and everything is so filling and healthy. If you have any questions all you have to do... More

My friend had a meal here, some sort of pie with salad and potatoes. Looked lovely and homemade. He said it tasted gorgeous and filled him up. I had a scone, again appeared homemade and fresh. Gorgeous and incredibly filling! My son had a cookie. We all had drinks which were ok.

I love toucan. The food is amazing! I have recently cut out dairy for breastfeeding and there are always options on the menu for me. The staff are very helpful with this dietary need. Baby changing mat available and breastfeeding friendly. Only trouble is the amount of stairs with a pushchair BUT the staff are very nice about letting me... More

Had a very nice lunch at a reasonable price. Decent enough choices of gluten free meals. Coffee was nice, plan to try the flat white next time. This is a vegetarian café but compared to the others on The Parade it seems to be busier. The food was tasty and well presented on colourful plates. Very clean place, clean toilets.... More

I am not a vegetarian but the lunch that I ate there today was some of the best favours that I have eaten in years. I tend to avoid trendy Smoothie style cafes but this place was excellent .Good atmosphere happy people all eating food with glorious smells drifting across the room. I had a pie with pumpkin leeks and... More

Food quality and plentiful: friendly and relaxing. All four of us have varied palates, not one disappointment voiced. All that is expected and wanted

This is a wholefood cafe so it serves only vegetarian and vegan food, the quality of which is excellent. I was so impressed, and although I'm an occasional meat-eater, if I could always find vegetarian food this good, I would never go back to eating meat. I see they've improved their 'processes' following feedback, and if you order a vegan... More

Great choice of vegan hot and cold dishes - excellent quality, if a little expensive. My only complaint is that the salad that came (by default) with my vegan dish had mayonnaise in it so, being vegan, I could not eat it. Apparently you are supposed to tell the staff if you are vegan, but I presumed that a vegan... More
