The food is comforting vegetarian and vegan fair, but so much more than a plate of lentils. The night I went I had Greek pears, vegetarian lasagna, fresh green salad and jasmine rice...wonderful.

The concept of pay what you can was totally new for me. Everything works perfect, food was delicious, and the volunteers were really nice. One of the best coffees in the city. For me is a "must to visit"
