Such a fantastic and worthy project to save food otherwise destined for the bins. A huge variety of tasty meals, vegetables and fruit served by very friendly volunteers. Highly recommended.

Amazing food - Feeding Bellies not Bins. You will be amazed at the meals provided - tasty & nutritious. As for the cost - we’ll you decide that too - pay as you feel. Brilliant. Highly recommended.

Was expecting a lot less than we got. Food was stunning - small selection, though veg option good. Pay what you can - have to respect the ethos behind the cafe.
