It's been here for over ten years and that says a lot about what the diners think about the food here.
Vegetarian restaurants and cafes can be extremely vulnerable ventures as meat eaters will sometimes disregard them without even trying the food. After ten years of producing this honest , simple but nevertheless great tasting food it's time you gave it a try even if you are a meat eater. On a Sunday lunch time there can be up to seven freshly cooked options on the specials board . Everything from a dhal with potato wedges to a vegetable crumble served with some fantastic salads to a leek and Wensleydale quiche to buritos. Then there's lovely home made soup served with huge chinks of wholemeal bread and butter , filled baked potatos and other simple options. If there are children they will do smaller portions. With that amount of choice you are unlikely to be disappointed. What's more you know you are eating fresh food made with a passion by the owner. It also serves home made cakes - like the pear and plum slice. Added to this is the fact you are in a an historic place - the building is a series of restored stone masons cottages now housing galleries and a gift shop full of local crafts. You are also in the village where the Brontes were born and you can walk to take a look at the house within a few minutes. So put this on your list of places to visit and have a great lunch. It also opens once a month in the evening but booking is essential due to demand. During the day two courses and a hot drink would cost you about £11 a head

On a visit to Charlotte Bronte's birthplace we experienced hunger pangs and stumbled upon South Square Vegetarian Cafe. The place was quiet when we arrived (2.30pm saturday afternoon) and we enjoyed a nice lunch.

They didn't have our first choice drinks but other than that I have no complaints.

Despite not booking on a Friday evening, and the place was heaving (it was a craft fare in the arts centre), they managed to find us a table for two. It was my second trip and well worth it!
This is 'vegan heaven', as many of the dishes can easily be adapted. I had a cauliflower, tomato and potato crumble followed by an apple and cinnamon bake-both yummy!
The service is welcoming and warm, the atmosphere is great and I only wish it were within walking distance, as I'd be there every day! You can tell everything is home made - this lovely veggie cafe proves that one can have healthy, nutritious food without compromising on taste.
