My girlfiend and I popped into acanteen after some shopping in town recently. We had been in for coffee a few times previously which was very nice so thought we would have some food this time. We ordered a quinoa salad with green beans and falafels. The food was so poor I thought I needed to write a review.
The beans were smothered in orange rind which took away any subtle flavour from the beans. The falafels were dry beyond belief (I actually commented the ones we buy in Asda were better) and the quinoa was covered in cinammon and looked like it had been left out for days. The food cost us £7.95 which I thought was way more than it was worth. We ended up leaving most of it and popping into M&S for a salad.
The cappucino and hot chocolates were both very good and the couple behind had a much better looking bacon and portobello mushrooms on toast so perhaps we were just unlucky.
Something else to mention is the tap waters we asked for were brought up in dirty glasses and my girlfriends still had someone else's lipstick on. I know this place has a rustic/organic image but they surely still have a dishwasher?!
Wont be going back.
