We ate soup, main course and amazing desserts . The service was great . They welcomed as with a big smile .
If you keep the shabbes you can pay in advance and come eat your meal when you want.
We sat there for two hours and enjoyed every second of it.

Small, friendly cafe serving vegetarian meals. We sampled the homemade soup which was delicious and was served with homemade bread and hoummus.

My husband and I both had the soup and main combo, which was delicious. The soup came with bread and hummus for vegans, as opposed to dairy, and we had a curry for the main. The cafe is small but a really nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. They only have one soup and one main choice per day, and when I looked at that weeks full menu there was only one day that the main was not vegan friendly - the soup was so you could be sure you were always getting something. Maybe worth a check online to make sure if you were set on getting a main before you go... Prices were reasonable, but the best bit were the home made vegan cakes we bought to eat later on - delicious!

Went there for lunch. It was a great sunny day so we sat at outside at the back to enjoy the sun - not the best place to sit because of the uneven concrete our table was at, but better than being inside on this beautiful day.
I think they always only serve one soup dish (with bread) and one main dish. I had the main dish which was quite disappointing, basically a tomato based stew with boiled cauliflower and eggplant, accompanied with a small portion of rice and a few sheets of salad (iceberg salad I think). I've had some great vegetarian dishes, but this one had no ambition. Had the raw chocolate cake afterwards, and that's probably the best chocolate cake I've ever had. Dark and rich chocolate flavor with a side of cream...absolute heaven. The service was friendly but not very professional.
