I love the food in acanteen, but always find it very much on the expensive side. I recently got a fish finger sandwich with a side of potato wedges, and it was £12. The food is nice, but really not worth those kind of prices.

I have now been to Acanteen twice for breakfasts now - I can't believe I haven't before! First time was the pancake stack and the second was a good old fashioned fry up. If you're into quality, hearty, freerange and fairtrade ingredients then this is the place for you. There's a good choice of meals from clean eating to the... More

To call this place a canteen is about right. It's a bit more upmarket than a caff as (salads and quiches not just jacket potatoes) but not quite a restaurant as one has to queue in line and pay upfront before waiting for the food to be brought to your table. It doesn't appear to be licensed either but has... More

I absolutely love this place! Lunch for me was 'chunky butternut squash & chickpea soup', which had such a great tasty flavour. My husband (who paid - thank you!) had a falafel & halloumi cheese wrap equally as tasty !! Service fantastic as usual - thank you for a lovely birthday lunch!

The sausage and bacon both tasted of quality premium products. The fried eggs were also cooked to perfection. Latte was also good. The... More

Menu is extensive and the food is excellent - all fresh and home made, with plenty of creativity thrown in. Newspapers available to read while sipping coffee and awaiting breakfast - pretty tricky to get the Sunday Times, someone else usually has it - seemingly that's the clientele it attracts! A little pricier than elsewhere in town, but that's to... More

Great food, locally sourced, cooked very well, with a few interesting choices. Never eaten the same thing in there twice as so many tempting dishes. Relishes, mustards and jams to die for make this a fantastic experience. Staff are always happy and helpfull. What more do you want for breakfast.
