Excellent vegetarian food

This place is great and especially busy during lunch, so get in early for a good seat. Atmosphere is cool and relaxing and the food is always top notch!

I love this place! The service here is always great, as is the coffee. The food is also delicious & always tastes so fresh and flavourful! If you're vegan, ask to see the vegan menu for multiple options. There are also vegan labelled options in the cabinet, although I feel that a few vegan baking options (aside from the vegan... More

The food was excellent and there was a good variety of choices. The pizza was very tasty and I enjoyed the different tastes and textures of the salads.

This is a step back in time. A slightly hippyish retro feel ( ie its never been updated) but food is good. Old fashioned vegetarian style a little on the stogy side but tasty enough. If you crave a step back into the " vegetarian cafe of the early '80's' in atmosphere and food this is the place for you.
