Made another exceptional visit to Optimum Joy today for lunch which was a first for us - although it was a bit of a toss up whether we had breakfast as I had a hankering for scrambled tofu again but we decided as we hadn't tried the lunch menu, to go for that.

My husband and I decided to order two of the main lunch dishes (Balsamic roasted tomato bruschetta with walnut and rocket pesto and a Quinoa mixed salad) and share both of them, which looking at the menu and other dishes on offer, would be how we would do it in future as well. Portion size and taste, spot on. The walnuts in the bruschetta dish had my husband reminiscing about caramelised popcorn and they were indeed very moreish. I must add, the food is also aesthetically pleasing, which makes the whole dining experience even more enjoyable.

Again service spot on - definitely feel the more you visit, that you are remembered; atmosphere relaxed and chilled. The Chef came out to speak to us again and we both think he is absolutely lovely and his creations simply marvellous!

I was recommended to try their chocolate cake and although I didn't have room to eat it there and then, it was put it a take out box, in a little bag to take home - its that level of service that really makes this place special for me. Anyway, their chocolate cake - simply heaven!

I'm already planning my next visit - which will definitely be sooner rather than later.

We often dream of happening across a place that will cater for us perfectly and for once our dream came true. Optimum Joy is worth travelling to Shrewsbury for. The chilled out atmosphere and the friendly staff is one thing. But the food - is in my daughter's words - simply divine! The cup cakes are delicious, the vegan breakfast heavenly and the light lunches are quite simply perfect. We are already planning are next trip...

I absolutely adore this place. It's so light and calming - you automatically feel at ease as soon as you walk in. I have been here quite a few times with my fiancé but usually I just pop in on my own to grab a soya latte. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. Best coffee in town :-)
