We were uncertain where to have a quick lunch as we were just driving through. We looked in the window and it seemed interesting. We had the curried sweet potato and lentil soup - absolutely marvellous.

This cafe actually serves tea with real tea leaves. Good selection of cake. You can sit out on the pavement, inside or in a small garden. Incredible array of natural foods in tubs.
