Im not a vegan , but this is my favourite eatery. The kebab is incredible and the milkshakes are perfect. Could do with a bit more space however highly recommend.

I went here with my partner and mother for lunch. I had a quiche & salad and the others had lasagne. I am not a vegan but I was gobsmacked that it didn't contain any dairy, as the quality and taste was amazing! If I could eat food like this every day, I would be a vegan I'm sure. The... More

Old school cafe feel and a lovely place to have your lunch. Club sandwich looks and taste amazing, so do the cakes. Even though my boyfriend is far from being vegan, he enjoyed lunch there, especially proper coffee made with oat milk

This is a really lovely, quaint cafe serving really yummy vegan food. The coffee was excellent and I had a green smoothie which was so great that I went back the next day to have another one! The seitan kebab is really great. The burger also looked fantastic.

Great Friday night takeaway , frittata I think with roast veg and the cheddar cheeze . And a mix of three delicious salads the one with raw cauliflower was divine , so much flavour . I love fortify salads , something sadly lacking in most other cafes . As unimaginative and dreary . Fortifys are always inventive , great mix... More

I'm not a vegan but I appreciate vegan food and do enjoy it still. I came here after hearing lots about it. The sandwiches are amazing and I was able to have it on gluten free bread and change around some of the fillings. The gluten free brownies are some of the best I've ever had!
