I ate twice at this cafe during my visit to the area and had a very tasty meal on both visits. I would recommend sharing a meal as main dish comes with a choice of 2 side salads and was plenty for two women sharing.

Lovely restaurant over looking the river. Both of us agreed that veg food does not need to be as tasteless and boring as the lunches we got.

The atmosphere is definitely alternative and so is the audience. The food is rich, succulent and you can taste that the ingredients are organic and healthy. The portion size seems average, but don't be fooled. Even the strongest and hungriest person won't be able to...More
