A great place to grab some healthy vegetarian food - while at times the surroundings can feel cramped the food lives up to its high reputation with a good range of food on offer - Reasonable prices too.

Ate lunch here I ordered quiche which was so tasty. The price is so reasonable which us an added bonus. The lemon cream pie was lovely. It's a small place located off the main road. Worth a visit.
