We always pop in to 'The Veggie' ,when we're in Ilkley.Everything is fresh and tasty.We were recently bowled over by the home-made liquorice cake, which my wife - no stranger to cake - pronounced the best cake sh'd ever had.You can't say fairer than that.

Lovely warm welcome with fresh, tasty food. We popped in for a snack and to dry out on a miserable wet day.

The chickpea and lentil burger was a little dry - but compensated for by a very tasty salad. The Wensleydale and apple sandwich was a hearty Yorkshire treat - complete with salad, hummus and olives on the side.

Will definitely come again to try the rest of the menu.

I've used the Veggie as a takeaway, dropping in to buy soup or snacks. The soup is excellent, with an imaginative choice of ingredients. As soup choices are often limited in non-veggie restaurants and sandwich shops, it's a pleasure to have something to surprise the taste buds. The soup is partnered with a slice of delicious, buttered, home-baked bread.
The Veggie's chocolate Guinness cake is not so much a food as a total gastronomic experience.
One tip - if you're having the soup as a takeaway, call in advance to order it to avoid delay.

One of the best veggie meals we have had. I had the mezze which changes daily, while my partner had wild mushroom fricasse. Both were excellent and really tasty. Very friendly. Reasonably priced.
