I visit Eighth Day cafe roughly once a month, for lunch or early dinner, and am rarely disappointed. They offer a selection of soups, stews or curries, bakes and dahl on a daily basis, as well as salads, cakes, brownies, and other grab-and-go food from the upstairs deli. Prices are reasonable - a customer can expect to pay from £3... More

The appeal of this place isn't just for vegetarians and vegans, such is the diversity of products it sells. Furthermore, the deli counter sells superb freshly prepared food (hot and cold) - today I enjoyed the teriyaki tofu wrap, superb! For vegetarians and vegans though, this place is an Aladdin's Cave. Well worth a browse around the shop then head... More

I went here the other day and had the lentil daal with potatoes and veg. The food was certainly good but if I'm honest, nothing special. I always get a bit miffed eating out when I feel I could do the food myself - and this was no better than my own cooking. Also, I did think it was a... More

First came here after my hospital appointment and had the vegan breakfast whilst my mum had the veggie one. We both loved it and vowed to come back again. I bought a vegan mayo from the shop and made the best tasting vegan coronation 'chicken' and some coleslaw I've ever had! Much better than any veggie version I've tried in... More

Came here as treat due to dairy and egg allergies and the good reviews on the cafe. Was really excited to try the cake as they looked amazing so we got the chocolate and date cake and the peanut butter brownie. We were a bit disappointed as they were both really really dry, I couldn't even manage half of the... More

We popped in here for a quick lunch on the insistence of our teenage vegetarian daughter, keen to try it out having just moved into the area as a student. We all opted for the dahl and rice, and it was quite delicious. The portion size was good for the price and it was extremely tasty. The seemed to be... More

I went in and ordered a wrap for later. Lots of choice, all vegetarian, of course. I chose the aubergine and new potato wrap. Delicious
