I am trying to be a pescatarian and going to lunch with a seasoned pescatarian I was excited to go here for lunch. The Good Life Cafe behind Quayside center. Eggplant and plantain in a wrap with other stuff was tasty and filling. Did I mention it was a spinach wrap? Good concience free meal. Loved it. Great company too.

We went for a late lunch on a Monday and had a very pleasant time. Salad and tofu on the side was fresh and tasty - good quality ingredients and generous - and the black beans and rice was similarly tasty and generous (indeed proved too much so we took the leftovers home which the cafe boxed for us).

I definitely recommend eating here if you're seeking vegan/vegetarian foods. The food is well made and the menu has a wide variety of choices. Also offers a takeaway service which is great!
