My mum and I popped in to get a couple of coffees and a vegan milkshake (lush, by the way). The café is lovely in itself, a nice atmosphere and is meat-free! Yay! My mum and I sat by the window, it is a great spot for people-watching! It is above street level so we spent a while watching the... More

Two things to be aware of, 1. Vegitarian 2. Cash only, no cards. But do not let this put you off. The value is very good, food is very flavoursome and nicely cooked. Do try the omlettes and chips. I have read comments about the owner being a bit grumpy, but we did not find this to be the case..... More

When not with my daughters this is my cafe of choice, when shopping in Worcester. The atmosphere is calm, peaceful, the service is good - waiting staff know the menu and are able to make excellent recommendations and the food is very tasty. I have eaten in here with friends but have felt just as comfortable eating alone. The food... More

When we booked a short break in Worcestershire, we decided we would spend one day visiting the historic sights of Worcester and would therefore need to find somewhere for lunch. An online search introduced us to the Karmic Cafe, right in the city centre. We both fancied the “Greek Ploughman’s Lunch”, which consists of either grilled halloumi or falafels, accompanied...

I go here quite regularly for lunch, or just for coffee and cake. As a vegetarian, it's great to be able to eat everything on the menu, and the menu is quite wide, covering English - breakfast and other dishes like shepherds pie and omelettes - as well as a range of Middle Eastern, Greek and Indian food. The food... More

I called in this morning and had a very nice cup of tea. I hadn't realised it was a vegetarian cafe and although I'm a meat eater some of the food I saw looked very appetising I must return for lunch one day

Had my first visit to the Karmic Café this week and was very impressed. It's a nice, airy, simple (in a good way) café/restaurant that serves vegetarian and vegan meals and snacks. In every way that matters the Karmic Café distinguished itself. The food is great - well cooked, well presented and a wide choice of options. The service is... More

Lovely little cafe but the older employee with the shaved head needed to calm down. He was huffing and puffing. He was rude to the other staff who were lovely. As soon as we put our knives and forks down he was onto us asking to take our plates away. He didn't smile. I think it would be a nicer... More

I love this cafe! I've only visited a few times because I tend to live on using my card, but last time I went, they didn't take card, only cash. I'm really excited to constantly go back after my first visit because of being vegetarian, however, and I still have yet to take my meat eating boyfriend! I think what... More

Although being vegetarian is far more normal these days than when I first switched, it is still the case that you often end up with just one veg (slightly unimaginative) option on a menu. So it's always a pleasure to find a proper all-vegetarian cafe with a wide choice including vegan, indian and greek dishes. Although I'd said I only... More
