After walking round Matlock and struggling to find somewhere nice to eat we chanced upon this little gem. Neither my husband or I are vegetarian but we like to eat healthily. The food was amazing - everything was so fresh and delicious. I would go back to Matlock just to eat here again.

Had a fantastic vegetarian lunch here today. Loads of choice, everything freshly prepared & really liked the fact that you can choose a variety of portion sizes, although to be honest the middle size deli plate was sufficient & I don't think either of us could have eaten the mains size. Lovely mixed salad with nuts, bulgar wheat, sprouting seeds,... More

The difference being that there is no meat! I don't mind that as I am a vegetarian. My husband is not, but we both enjoyed our lunch here. We visited following a swim at nearby Arc Leisure, and my husband found this tip on TripAdvisor. Great, home made, tasty food with very pleasant service. I opted for a small plate... More

We visited The Green Way Café for lunch on Saturday, and what a treat! The waitress was attentive, the salad was incredibly fresh with really exciting diverse flavour combinations, there were a good range of deli options available to complement these flavours, the courtyard garden was gorgeous in the sunshine.... and to top it off, the most delicious and reasonably...

The food here was delicious; very good value, very fresh and tasty and huge portion sizes! I had falafel and then chocolate cake - so good! There seemed to be a very good choice for vegan, gluten free and lactose free diets. Would definitely come here for lunch again.

Really homely, unpretentious, well presented food. You really don't miss meat not being on the menu.

I have eaten at this cafe on several occasions. There is always an interesting range of homemade food on offer. It is fully vegetarian but almost anyone would enjoy the food. Meals are beautifully presented and you can choose to have a large or small plate. They make wonderful soup and combine all sorts of tasty ingredients for their salads.... More
