Lovely vegetarian cafe above a great wholefoods store with plenty of Vegan options and gluten free too. Very pleasant staff and great atmosphere, it was busy but we didn't wait long for our lunch.

If you are a vegetarian/vegan this the place to seek out. The food is always excellent.plus they allow dogs into the cafe. Portions are not skimpy.

We have been in here a few times, usually just for a hot drink and cake, which are delicious btw. Today we had lunch for the first time and it was fantastic. Highly recommended.

What a delightful cafe! The food is delicious and filling and the portions are ENORMOUS. I made a valiant effort but could not finish my spectacular peanut curry.

Ticks all the boxes. Great wholesome food, huge portions, great value for money and lovely staff. We had the Leek and Thyme quiche, which was delicious and will definitely be making a trip back to Minehead, just so we can sample more of the great food on offer.
