I had lunch here whilst travelling for business. Downstairs the decor and atmosphere was very welcoming. Minimal queuing time, friendly staff and great food selection. The fact that everything is vegetarian or vegan is a a bonus! Would highly recommend. Breakfast menu also available, so...More

Super food but super small portions, especially with the main courses and soup. Food is wholesome vegetarian & vegan and of good quality. The menu changes daily, all staff are friendly and informative about the food. My only real complaint is the portions. Especially now...More

I regularly pop in for lunch during the week and I'm never disappointed. The vegetarian meals are healthy, tasty and filling. I like the relaxed canteen vibe of the restaurant. It sort of reminds me of being at school, in a good way!

Friendly staff serve good portions of veg stews and bakes. I wasn't in the the mood for a stew so got a soup that was PHENOMENAL. Hearty mushroom with a kick of spice and brown bread and butter to round it out. The vegan desserts...More

You don't feel like you've payed a premium for the ethical standards here. The grub is hearty and piled up. There's usually a bit of a bustle but I've never found myself standing waiting for a seat. You know it's healthy, clean, filling, and all...More

Whilst I was once vegetarian for 15 years those days are long gone and I was in the mood for a big steak - instead my wife took me to this veggie cafe downstairs from a health food store!!! However, I can say that the...More

Pretty reasonably priced meals that are delicious and incredibly savory, especially the dahls which variate, but seem to all be equally tasty and very filling. I went to about five other vegan/vegetarian restaurants in the city, this was the only place that consistently had steamed...More
