Great Café

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... read more

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

Friendly cafe. Don't be put off my the fact that it's a whole food cafe. The food is delicious and there's plenty of it. The cakes are amazing & home made. My 'go-to' lunch spot AND they do take-out...such a pity I don't work in town or I'd be setting up a standing order for their salad bowl. Mmmm hungry... More

I have never left a review before but felt I just had to for this amazing little cafe/restaurant. This was my 2nd visit and it was just delicious. I had a gorgeous shepherdess pie and my friend had a curry, both were amazing. The choice just makes me want to cry with delight as us veggies are SO under catered... More

An oasis of calm and culinary delights, right in the middle of Minehead...superb vegan and vegetarian food, home cooked, and great smoothies. Just simple order at the counter service but lovely, very different foods, take away service is well worth it too.
