We had Friday dinner here. Unusual vegetarian menu with lots of creative flair. We loved the rice balls. Food is homely and they were obliging about tweaking my menu. Highly recommended for an informal, good value vegetarian meal

Very nice people, amazing food. Limited options but that isn't a bad thing. Just means the food you do get is the best you could hope for. Shame about the 'dementia' man who couldn't pay but amazing place would highly recommend. Enjoy!!!!
