At 12pm weekdays our lunch buffet starts, with 11 hot food and 5 salad choices. Everything is vegan, but even non-vegans/vegetarians seem to love our food. We also have a number of yummy healthy desserts. Friday and Saturday nights we do an international a la Carte menu. Why not pop in and join the crowd ☺.
