This little cafe closed permanently at the end of last season, 2018. I gp past several times a week and the sign on the door says 'retired - thanks for your custom'.

Currently owned by a musician about to retire. A one person operation. He lived in India for a few decades but it barely influences his food. No meat except fish. Very small 4 tables. One is for eight tho.

Lively vegetarian cafe. With just the most beautiful, tranquil garden to sit in. Lots of jacket potatoes, sandwiches and breakfast options. Vegan options available. Cakes and coffees for dessert.

Such a lovely cosy spot. The garden is beautiful, and such a breath of fresh air in the busy city center. The cakes are lovely too!
