Was turned away at 2.45pm, they'd stopped serving. It states they're open to 4.30pm! They should welcome the custom and take advantage of being the only vegan cafe in Ipswich. Very disappointed 😞

Yes, it's a cafe but it's spotless with friendly helpful staff. Smallish menu but everything looks delicious. I had the dahl and my friend, the lasagne. Both excellent. We followed with a slice of their homemade cakes and excellent coffee. We plan to return again...More

We quite often visit this cafe for lunch on a Saturday and love their food. Neither of us is vegetarian but we thoroughly enjoy the fantastic range of meals - there's always something different on the menu. Today we had green bean, mushroom and carrot...More

Well where do I start, service was so poor, the older lady serving needs a lesson in politeness and helpfulness, if a customer ask what is included in the "and more" ingredients how hard is it to explain. With so many people having intolerances these...More
