One of the best vegan pizza's that I've had so far, and the portions are huge! Perfect if you'd like to share as well. Staff was super kind and service was great. Would definitely recommend everyone to visit!

We ordered Mediterranean and carbonara pizzas, both vegan versions. The carbonara was a bit dull in taste, the Mediterranean was amazing, and surprisingly spicy (for a pizza with just one chilli in the menu). The staff is very friendly, helpful and welcoming. A place I...More

play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
