“Delicious soups and cakes”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I love this little place! The food looks very delicious and healthy. Even though I am not a vegetarian, but with Henderson's food you can see the appeal!

I would recommend their soups and cakes. See my pictures. I have not had better soups than there.

Food is fresh, staff very friendly and welcoming, lots of tables downstairs. I regret I only stayed in Edinburgh for 2 nights, because I miss their food so much!

“Old-style, no-nonsense bistro”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I've eaten here a couple of times with my family and we really like it. It's a bit like stepping back to a 1970s bistro for no-nonsense, no-frills food (quiche, curry, lasagne, salad bowls, etc) but all really nicely cooked and prepared and staff are friendly. Some nice puddings too. As vegetarians it's nice to go somewhere where we can eat anything on the menu.

“Great veggie food”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We ate dinner here 2 times. The prices for a meal are around 10£. But, being a poor student, it was one of the cheapest places to eat, since they allow you to drink free tap water. (other restaurants don't often allow this). I tried the Irish stew, and the nutburger. My friend tried the lasagna and the main salad (with very tasty tofu). The portions were not really big, but enough to get you through the night. The taste was great, and the staff were very friendly.
