This little vegetarian cafe is tucked away and is a little haven. I stumbled across it with friends and we had a lovely lunch. We tried a mixture of meals and all were superb with delicious bread and salad accompaniments. It is highly recommended.

We serve food 11.30am - 3pm. We don't take any bookings. Our menu changes every week influenced by fresh, seasonal, local produce. We use organic and fair-trade products wherever possible.
