A quirky little restaurant, vegan and vegetarian food cooked beautifully. Table service needs a little attention, with dirty plates left between courses despite taking dessert orders. Otherwise well worth a visit.

Retro style fitted with appropriate outfits too. This was perfect for a hot lunch that we needed. The only annoying thing was the front door that stuck constantly letting the cold air in, but apart from that we loved it.More
