Great lunch with kids

Very fresh, tasty treats. Excellent coffee and smoothies for children young and old. Can recommend the bean quesadilla and the spicy bean burger. The beetroot relish is also fantastic.

I have eaten here several times and the food is amazing. Great quiches, devine vegetable flans and their salad boxes are lovely. Just have a cuppa and one of their delightful cakes if you don't have time for lunch. Well worth the visit.

... not to mention tasty! Toucan is a bit of an institution.While away a morning with speciality tea (they have soya milk) and a paper, great for an informal meeting, or enjoy a wholesome, tasty lunch. Vege / vegan not a problem, food is home-cooked and portions generous. Great value and plenty of choice. Great health food / organic veg... More

Excellent impromptu lunch with friends. Lovely atmosphere, really polite and friendly staff (despite it being very busy) and a great selection of food and drinks. Lots of variety in the menu from freshly made smoothies, homemade quiches, flans etc and a wide rage of salads. Left feeling incredibly full and like I'd had my 5 day and a whole bunch... More

Met a friend here. We were good and only had a pot of tea. Friendly staff, tea was brought to our table for us. Comfy sofas for sitting relaxing, chatting. Nice and informal. Will be returning

By far one of the best vegetarian cafe's I have ever been too. Being a dedicated carnivore I like to go off piste occasionally and try non meat based tucker. The choice, presentation and taste of everything I have eaten in this cafe are second to non. I only wish I lived closer so I could go more often!

It would be very easy to walk past this cafe without realising it was there. Fortunately the staff in the attached health shop asked if we'd tried it. What a superb place! None of us are vegetarians, but enjoy this type of food from time to time. The choice of homemade dishes is amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful... More

I had heard that this was a lovely cafe through a couple of people, all telling me I wouldn't leave hungry! It was a little bit of a trek but so worth it. The food looked amazing that i could hardly choose and the flavours were beautiful. You immediately want a recipe book to recreate the wonderfulness. Good wholesome food... More

Last day in Butlins we thought the family could go out and experience a good place to eat. Looking at trip adviser and being no.1 it did not dissapoint. The location was tremendous and the feel of the place fitted in well with this area, the cafe felt very european as you were in France away from your home. You... More

Attached to their shop, this is a lovely little cafe with a healthy range of vegetarian food. We walked up a flight of stairs to get to the cafe. All food is homemade and made fresh. I had the cranberry and brie toasted sandwich which came with salad. Also tried the homemade cookies, strawberry shakes which were all delicious. Friendly... More
