Good choice of menu. Very tasty and correct servings. Nice, relaxed atmosphere but be warned reserve a table if you want to eat during the main lunch "rush hour". Otherwise, you will be queing!

A superb shop and cafe upstairs. Always the same standard of food sourced locally and one of the best veggie places to eat ever. Great service and lovely people
