This place is awesome. We visited a week ago and were most impressed with the food, service and ambience. We had not been since last year but the first thing we noticed was the number of staff and the friendly, welcoming and accommodating service. They had 2 vegan options for the mains. Most salads were vegan which were creative, imaginative... More

Great mixed salad, humus + pitta bread in relaxed atmosphere. We ate inside but there is a nice garden area with tables at the back.

Great coffee and quality of food. Vegetarian cafe with good friendly service and fresh salad and vegetarian food. I had a jacket potato with hummus olives and a beetroot coloured coleslaw and it was excellent. Clean rustic interior and seating outside too. They also have some excellent looking cakes but I'm being good and didn't try one. Will defensively visit... More

My favourite cafe in Llanidloes, always head there on visiting the town. Lovely atmosphere with locals dropping in as well as visitors. Homely pine tables and chairs, and lots of noticeboards advertising local events, and local artists' work on display. Vegetarian food is delicious with a varied menu and scrummy cakes. Coffee is great and nothing nicer than to sit... More

Love this place. We visit at least twice every time we are in Llanidloes. Lovely staff. Good choice of vegan food including a selection of cakes. The salads are awesome. One recommendation if you are in Mid Wales....visit the Great Oak at least twice

I was amazed to find this perfect little eatery but being dairy free and soya free due to intolerances I needed to be careful. There were a quite a few things i could eat but I was given incorrect information on some things which I only discovered when I checked in the customer copy of the intolerance book. Staff were...

The salads are to die for, the staff are friendly. The garden is a beautiful place to sit and eat on a dry day.

Bright and friendly cafe where you can watch the world go by or admire the artwork on the walls. Superb cake and good coffee.

We stopped in here primarily for coffee, although I have to admit to being tempted by the cakes - mine was very tasty. They serve a very good flat white coffee, good enough to tempt me back to try the food if and when we are back in the area.

Huge range of salads and hot food for the lunchtime crowd. I'm not a full time vegetarian but if I could eat here every day I happily would be.
