The food here is AMAZING. My sister is vegan. I am not. The food here caters for vegans and veggies but to be honest you do not need meat when the food tastes so so good. I had red lentil tarka dahl and my sis had pumpkin and something... Both had such deep flavours and the salad is just something... More

I have visited this restaurant for many years, it is always busy because it is constantly good! The staff are friendly and helpful. Great choice of Soup, hot & cold food and a variety of salads, not forgetting the lovely puddings if you are still hungry, or just go in for a coffee & something sweet. It is vegetarian, however...

Brilliant find off the beaten track. Great staff, excellent food and brilliant value for money! Faultless apart from the dithering customers it can attract! Give it a whirl though, it's delicious.

We were in Shrewsbury looking for somewhere to get breakfast and I remembered reading a couple of good reviews about The Good Life. There are signs for it at the entrance to the passageway off of Wyle Cop. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu is vegetarian but, as a keen meat eater, I can assure you that the... More

Vegetarian breakfast is easily 'veganisable', and very tasty. Staff are lovely and friendly. Look forward to trying lunch here at some point!

Just like the last reviewer, this was our first visit to Shrewsbury and we arrived in need of a coffee, coming across this cafe by chance. The home-cooked food, the delicious aroma and the healthy ingredients brought us back for lunch. The food is delicious and is very good value. Definitely to be recommended.

We have had lunch here a few times now and it never fails to please. A great selection of salads always on offer to accompany lovely quiches, nut roasts, lasagnes and vegetable stews and much more. Excellent prices. Not to be missed if you like your food healthy.

Looking for coffee and cake we popped in here. Cakes did not dissapoint, and as a tea room owner myself I am hard to please. Lovely sticky chocolate flan and a pecan tart. However the cappucino was a disapointment. Over heated and underflavoured. Get that bit right and it would have been perfect. The lunch options looked lovely as well... More
