Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My mum and I had a lovely lunch here for her birthday. After much debate we both chose the cheese, mushroom and tomato French bread pizza, which turned out to be a delicious choice. The bread was beautifully crisp, the topping with the mushrooms was...so tasty and the small salad was beautifully fresh. Portion sizes are ideal for her as she is put off by a huge meal. Someone with a large appetite would probably need to add a starter or dessert (or both!) but the prices are so reasonable this would be a good option. Fortunately I had booked a table as it’s a very intimate space and people were turned away. Overall an excellent experience - we’ll be back!More

This small restaurant was a great find. We had an excellent lunch of eclectic and delicious vegetarian items that were specials that day, including soups, a curry, and a mushroom pie. They create dishes you won’t find almost anywhere else. They were friendly and prices...were reasonable.More

We found this Buxton Gem last week while visiting the area. We had a lovely vegan breakfast all made to order with beautiful fresh ingredients. The coconut bacon was a first for me, made by the friendly man who owns the place, it was amazing....The menu is extensive ,all home made too. We spotted Vegan mags and books on a shelf which I picked up to flick through, followed by a chat with the owner who inspired me with his wealth of knowledge on Vegan recipes. Since then I have made a few Vegan recipes with success and ordered the vegan magazine which is great.....I got a good deal on the magazine on line. I really wish we lived closer to the Herb Garden, it has the recipe for success, so go visit now if you can. ....The prices are very fair too..........Top Mark's 🤩More

My husband and I went for a quick lunch. It was a very cozy and friendly place. I had a coronation tofu sandwich which was surprisingly beautiful. I am not a vegan nor vegetarian but all the menu looked very appealing such that I found...it very difficult to choose. It was a dog friendly too. I am not a big fan of cakes in general but we shared a date and walnut cake which was divine!More

What a wonderful café. We popped in for a mid-morning coffee and cake, and weren't disappointed. Delicious Parsnip & Hazelnut Cake; Porter Cake which is a regular favourite, apparently. Coffee could have been a mite stronger. Lovely warm welcome and really nice ambience. The menu...for lunch looked really tempting, but sadly we will have moved on by then. HIghly recommended.More

We were recommended this amazing vegan cafe by a lovely local lady and we were thoroughly delighted with every aspect of our dining experience. From the warm welcome by the owner Andrew to the ambience ,quality of food and friendliness of the service. We enjoyed...the most delicious tumeric and ginger lattes made with oatmilk ( you can choose the milk ) , also a lovely pie with very healthy cooked to perfection veg and a halloumi wrap melt in your mouth delicious . To end a fruit crumble with vegan vanilla ice cream. Set us up nicely for the day . They close at 2.30 and do take away pies too . This place doesn't need advertising as it gets all its main business from word of mouth. Cannot recommend it enough and we will always return here whenever we visit Buxton again. Well done, you made our day Andrew and Caroline. A 5+ star experience. Thanks 👍🏼😊More

There are two outside tables, each seating two. Limited pavement space, but potential to put the two tables together for a party of four.

Hi there, yes we do welcome dogs. As we are a small place we obviously always need to consider the size of dogs and how many dogs you have. Fresh water is alwaupys provided in the entrance for dogs as well.
