Service was very slow and meals were not served at the same time, the miso soup didn't taste of much...supposed to be fish. Will give it another go as all the other food was tasty and perhaps we just arrived after a rush on food....

Lovely fresh salads, and scrambled tofu for breakfast. Wish I'd found it sooner. Good coffee too and very friendly service. My new favourite place in Leek which has several good places to eat.

Stopped in for an afternoon snack. Had a baked potato with Tina and a tuna salad sandwich, both were nice and well presented. The price, with two drinks, was very good.
