Popped in here when we visited the music museum. Great food, decent prices, and lots of memorabilia. Our friends had the jerk chicken and rate it as the best they have had.

In the restaurant we do have vegan suitable dishes on the menu. If you are coming to the cafe we are always able to do something off menu that is suitable for vegans.

Sorry I don't know. They do have a website and a phone number. They are very responsive and reply to phone messages and emails. It's worth a visit we loved it and they are very friendly.
