I like the food, mostly. Some delicious wraps and salads and soup today (lentil and carrot was excellent). This is really a nice place to come and eat .

The food is pretty average, good if you're GF or vegan though. The first time I visited there was insects floating in my cup of tea. The second time I visited a big beetle started crawling up my friends chair and onto his back. I won't be returning.

no where to park which created difficulty with my children. They should re locate to a store with a car park or get a car park

Visited Food Story for breakfast today, just before 11 which is when breakfast stops and were told it was no longer being served. Bit annoying that it stopped early but we looked at the lunch menu anyway. When we tried to order from that menu we were told that only a few things were ready, none of which we particularly...

Go, try it yourself. Yummy, healthy, ethical, exciting... quality food with a lot of imagination and a great BIG heart. I love this place and, regrettably, don't get often enough now I live out of town. Nothing not to love <3

Thank Fi M
