Crispy salads, veggie bakes, potatoes, etc, yummy! Self service style so no wait for food! Slightly retro decor, but clean. Friendly staff and reasonably priced food and soft drinks.

We just stumbled upon this place by chance and judging by how busy it was knew it would be good. Food is delicious, fresh and tasty..very reasonably priced. Staff really friendly and the puddings were very difficult to choose because they all looked so good. I could quite easily eat there every day...

Nice food. Tasty, fair priced and home made. Healthy stuff and meat free. Being a big meat eater I wasn't disappointed with the mushroom and goats cheese lasagne. Will come again.

Popped in to have a cup of coffee on the way to work and grab a take away salad for lunch. Lovely fresh salads with several types to choose from. Shame I'm on a diet as the quiches fresh out the oven smells divine. Will be back.

It's a small place and can feel a bit cramped, but it's very friendly and has a good atmosphere. It's vegetarian but there's always a vegan option or two and is remarkably good value - and the food is good. It can be a bit hard to find, being tucked down one of Shrewsbury's picturesque alleys, but is well worth... More

Popped in for breakfast still felt full until well into the afternoon perfect for a morning exploring Shrewsbury before continuing with our journey. Really friendly and helpful staff especially with specific dietary requirements and really lovely food. We would have loved to try lunch as the menu looked really good. Will definitely visit again.
