“First time in, wont be the last!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Looking for a quick meal on a saturday lunchtime, we went in to see what was on offer without realising it was a meat free zone. Not put off by this, I ordered the greek ploughmans and was bowled over by the quality and quantity of the food for the price.

Roll on next weekend, so I can go back with the wife!

“great welcome, excellent menu choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Went in as it was the nearest as it started to rain and wow a very warm welcome greets you at the Karmic cafe. Helpful and attentive. Excellent soft drinks choice. Brilliant menu. Absolutely can recommend the Karmic omelette.
Next time we are in Worcester we will eat at the Karmic Cafe.

“always a good experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We're very fond of this place - the food is excellent, well priced and served in generous portions. Don't have a heavy breakfast before attempting one of their lunches...

We also love it as the only place we can get a soy milkshake for our dairy-intolerant baby without any funny looks or having to triple check that it really is vegan.

The service is good but some of the staff are not that friendly - e.g. I was trying to rearrange our table so that our son couldn't grab/ destroy the things close to him, and was told in no uncertain terms that I shouldn't pout the glasses at the back as they could fall (no attempt to help me move things, mind you!). But this doesn't detract from the fact that most of the staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful and the food is great, and would never put us off coming back.

The location is a bit obscure - upstairs in the covered market - but very nice, light and airy; despite the fact that there must be almost no casually passing trade, it's got plenty of custom which speaks volumes about it.

“breakfast and lunch at The Karmic Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is a pleasant place and we have been here several times (and being vegan like to patronise what is, to my knowledge, the only vegetarian restaurant in Worcester) and have always found the proprietor and staff extremely friendly and helpful - thus I cannot understand criticism of them in another review. Probably we all have our off days. The food is fairly good though a bit unimaginative, and it is a pity that a microwave oven is used (though I suppose in a busy restaurant you don't have much choice - these are a definite no no to anyone concerned with healthy eating), though they will warm or prepare your food without it on request. I saw the vegan breakfast criticised in another review, but we thought it rather good, and we have had it a few times.
