Recently discovered this vegetarian / vegan cafe. Food is excellent with several hot options and or salads per day. Staff are friendly and there is a nice relaxed atmosphere. There is something very comforting about this place.

Reliably tasty food, generous portions, friendly people. This place has been going since 1978 and is a Streatham legend. Friends and family always want to go when they're visiting.
