Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Can't believe that Thrive isn't in your list of top vegan food places in Glossop. Quite honestly anything you choose will be delicious and I'm not vegan. Each choice is made pretty much from scratch taking in your likes and dislikes and any food intolerances....Staff are so friendly. I love this place and go at least twice a week.More

Hi there. As lovely as this review is, I dont think you have the right listing. We are Cafe Thrive in Southampton. Glad to hear other vegan businesses are 'thriving' though.

I was in the city for work and excited to try the all vegan cafe (we don't have one in my smaller town!). I ordered the SLT baguette and the creme brulee cappachino. Both were delicious, served quickly, and brilliant value. The staff were lovely...and welcoming. Thank you!More

Good healthy option, especially for lunch. I had the Asian salad with falafel. The sesame dressing was excellent as were the falafels. Overall the salad was good and fresh though a little challenging to toss well. A nice place for lunch.

Lovely place for a vegan breakfast. It was hard to decide what to order because it all looked so good, in the end we went for the full English breakfast and it was amazing! It was nice that the breakfast included vegan 'bacon', 'sausages' and...'egg' as other places don't offer such a large selection of vegan breakfast items. Would like to return to try their lunch dishes as they looked great too.More

Our favourite brunch spot in Southampton. Every week the specials change. It's also top quality vegan comfort food. Try the reuben! The only potential downside is that you'll get addicted to vegan cake and your waistline will expand as you wallet shrinks, but that's a...risk I'm willing to take!More

This is my go to place to eat when I go into Southampton centre. The food is amazing, with generous portions, well thought out and very very tasty. Specials change every week and give me lots of new flavours to try. My personal favourites have...been PBJ loaded fries and Greek Flatbread. Their desserts are also fabulous - with lots and lots of choiceMore

Cafe thrive food is amazing! Literally the best cakes I have had in the world, the cronuts are incredible! They are absolute heaven! My favourite so far was the mini egg cookies and creme eggs at Easter as Easter chocolate is my favourite! Being vegan...I miss certain non vegan chocolate and cake things but when I have cafe thrives food I’m no longer missing out! The owner Sarah is absolutely lovely and super friendly too and always goes out her way to provide a brilliant service. I Cannot recommend enough! I look forward to more cake! 🥰😍More

The whole family loves Thrive. It's our top choice whenever we're in the vicinity. There's something for each of us. Really tasty food. Amazing desserts. There's often specials that we can't wait to see reappear on the board. Lovely service, too.
