What can I say , the food is so tasty, have introduced loads of people to this place as it does not disappoint. You dont have to be a vegetarian to eat here. My husband is not and really finds the food so tasty. I go here whenever I have a free lunch time. The salands are wonderful. love the Spinach and butternut frittata. Also the Ragu bake is super. I think they have a fantastic range. dont leave it too late because if you arrive late afternoon some of the lovely specials will be finished. I am going here today with my girlfriend for her birthday.

“Superb home cooking”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Absolutely delicious meal today. As a vegetarian, often choice is still limited in pubs and restaurants. So a vegetarian cafe gets a head start but the choice here was fantastic. All mains looked mouth-watering, the stuffed peppers I had were 2nd to none. Price was very good for the quality on offer. Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere - if only we lived closer.

“Absolutely recommended”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We visit Minehead quite frequently, but would never have noticed this restaurant had not friends introduced us to it a few months ago. We've been going there regularly ever since.

The food is consistently excellent, delicious, well-presented, with a good range and in plain but pleasant surroundings. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are friendly but not over-familiar.

This would be an exceptional restaurant in a trendy part of London. To find it in Minehead is remarkable. As others have said, you will not be disappointed.

I've eaten here many times and it always has a great variety of amazing home made vegetarian food! There are no other cafes in the area like this. Lovely atmosphere :)

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here almost everyday when we were in Minehead. The food is always freshly made, very tasty, and the salad dressing you get are excellent, again always fresh. The selection of cakes on offer is superb, try the flapjacks with a mug of fairtrade coffee you wont be disappointed. There is also a shop downstairs that you must go into!
