This is my all time favourite restaurant which turns raw produce into healthy delicious meals. My favourite smoothie is the Iron Man consisting of kale and sweet potato and other vegetables and fruit. For main course I believe the core does the best avocado and poached eggs in the world. Various seeds scattered on top of poached eggs, avocado roses,... More

Fantastic smoothies and juices. The sandwiches are brilliant. Excellent value because none of their food has any "filler" in it - it's all pure nutritious natural food - a lot of it raw. So any one dish will fill you up and keep you full for hours afterwards. Their range of snacks to take away are all great. Their gluten... More

I really like the food here and it is a place that stands out as a little different in Cheltenham. The food and smoothies are really tasty and it's lovely to have healthy options. It is a little pricey however and whilst the service was good it wasn't fantastic as it should be really.

We had lunch at this lovely cafe three times over a long weekend, having fallen in love with the fabulous juices and amazing home made bread. A short, simple menu of vegetarian and vegan dishes, all made with quality ingredients and served by friendly staff. Lovely vegan dessert too. Would highly recommend for a healthy brunch or lunch.

We visited here today, a group of 6 of us for a friends birthday gathering and we was not that impressed. Firstly we brought a birthday cake with us, and after ordering over £60 worth of food and smoothies, was told when i asked for some serviettes that we would have to pay for them if we were using them...

You would think poached eggs on toast would be simple enough ? Dreadful bread like solid bird seed cake ,solid eggs which tasted strongly of vinegar all sprinkled with more seeds ! We tasted it and left it . I complained about it and the fact it was still on our plates uneaten and the response , oh sorry ,... More
