Some people say quiche I say flan and boy what a flan. I'm a butcher's son by birth, so for me to convert it would be a challenge. South Square have a small but well turned out menu of which I've tried all and never been disappointed. Another Thornton gem

Southsquare vegetarian cafe is lunch times and some Friday evenings (you need to book Friday) and the food is always good to great. They can cater for most dietary requirements. No need to say much more other than eat here if you like good food.

This is an absolutely amazing place tucked away in a side street of Thornton Village a couple of miles out of Bradford. It's vegetarian and has the best flans (quiche like) that I have ever tasted. The salads or the half and half combo is fantastic as is the apple cinnamon hot drink. I eat here whenever I can find... More

Open during the day, you can get a filling tasty veg meal for £7 with starters and desserts as well if wanted. Quirky place and an interesting experience to eat here.

I'm a regular visitor to the cafe and it has never let me down. I'm not a veggie but my sister is, and this place is hands down our favourite lunch place. The flan is always amazing and the salads are lovely colourful and filling. Hope it long continues :)

We came to visit a felt making exhibition of Valérie Wartelle which was excellent, and a good excuse to stop for lunch. Not sure the menu ever changes but the food is amazing. Try to leave room for a cake. It's only a small cafe, and a bit draughty in winter but they provide blankets and you can sit by... More

The food here is exceptional, its very well cooked and presented, the service is very fast and friendly, i would say this is the best cafe or place to eat for miles around. i would recommend this place to anyone, only thing that lets it down, it doesn't open late enough.
