Ate here two days running. We're not vegetarians but this place could convert us. The food was very tasty and well presented. Service was with a smile even though they were busy.

We found this café when looking for vegan places to eat on a recent weekend break, the building was lovely but stuffed with chintz and nick nacks. We had a roast veg and hummus baguette, the bread was undercooked, the hummus was eye-wateringly strong and...More
