A little gem hidden but popular cafe in the city. Offers hearty but healthy home-made style food. This is the best and only place in the city centre that a vegan can get a decent meal. I really like the eastern european influence on the food. There's probably something for everyone. A wide selection of teas, with a tea for... More

This place is one of my favourite places in the UK not just because of the great food, eclectic tea ranges and reggae music, but because of the staff. Always singing and dancing and laughing and loving life. Welcoming new customers with open arms and bidding them farewell with delightful anecdotes! I'll try and visit a lot more than I... More

Lovely food with around 4 vegan options as well as soups and sandwiches. 2 or 3 vegan desserts are also on offer. Dozens of teas are available. Coffee is excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, great music and friendly staff. People with restricted mobility may struggle with access. Toilets are downstairs.

Fab selection of delicious teas, lovely food and friendly staff. I was surprised they allowed a man to bring a big wet dog in, not very nice in a cafe so unfortunately I probably won't go back

Quirky and hippyish vibe. Smells quite strongly of incense. Wide variety of teas (two thumbs up for that). Not a huge amount of food to choose from and some are slightly over priced for example I had a bog standard chicken salad for £6.20. we where all set to get a dessert as they looked delish however in the 1.5hours...

This place is a little gem. Daughter at uni in Preston and she has told me so many times about this place that I had to go. WOW! I honestly did not know there were so many different teas in the world. The decor is quirky and the staff are so happy and friendly and will give you advice about... More

Great little cafe for any kind of visit. Not a massive lover of tea but coming here always makes me appreciate the different varieties out there. The place itself has a very welcoming and homely feel with well prepared and tasty food. The only downside for us was the long wait for our food, one of the members of staff... More

I visited with my two daughters on the 28th December and we tried to order three meals. The gentleman waiter refused to accommodate our request for a plain chicken wrap for my youngest daughter even though we had done so successfully on a previous visit. He pressurised us to hurry up as the cafe was busy as we hesitated what... More

The food we got we had to wait for nearly an hour for. I finally got my mushroom soup and it was salty.
