We had high expectations for this cafe because of all the great reviews but were really disappointed with the quality of the food and the value for money. For starter my partner had beetroot humus and pitta, it was only a small dollop with 3...More

My daughter and I met here for lunch before visiting Tate Britain. It was such a treat and I'm amazed to see the recent bad reviews. The food (butternut squash & pak choi green curry and beetroot balls & salad) was delicious - the best...More

The menu is simple: 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 dessert to choose from. Price is very convenient. The food was good, all vegan, but don't expect anything fancy. It offers what it promises: great atmosphere, good healthy food, with plenty of flavours at a...More

This place is just thirty paces from my front door. Why did it take me so long to visit? I’ve lived here for over 10 years. Possibly because it’s a vegan restaurant and I’m not a vegan. However, I went t’other night with a friend...More
