“Lovely vegetarian cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We were looking for lunch in Milton Keyne and decided to give this a try. We were not disappointed. We had soup and a sandwich which were both delicious, especially the salad dressing which I found out was made with raspberry vinegar which was available to buy in the nearby shop (which I did). We were served by several very pleasant people who had learning disabilites but managed extremely well, considering their disablities. I would imagine that all the clientele are aware of this fact and therefore are going to be more understanding and tolerant if little mistakes are made as they are certainly trying their best. The surroundings are also very nice if you fancy a walk around Willen Lake or visit the Peace Pagoda. We will be back because the food is so tasty.

“Peaceful vegetarian lunch venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

The Camphill Cafe is a gem of a place just across the road from Willen Lake in Milton Keynes. Run by the Camphill Community, home to people with learning disabilities, the cafe is built on Steiner principles. Much of the food is organic and home grown, all of it is home made and they always have a great selection of cakes. The food is vegetarian, lovely soups and salads with daily specials of mains. The atmosphere is very welcoming and peaceful and it is a lovely place for mid morning coffee too. Opening hours are limited (approx 10.30 to 4) and it can get busy so go early for lunch. Meals are very inexpensive, especially considering the care that is put into them. There is also a lovely shop on site selling produce, wonderful bread and items made in the Camphill Community such a beautiful woven bags (very cheap too). Highly recommended!

“Wonderful vegetarian gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

Went to Camphill for a birthday treat and my husband and I were amazed at this quaint hidden little gem. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean the vegetarian food was seriously wonderful, organic and tasty. The bread and cakes were made on site and were divine and the waiter and waitresses were absolutely lovely. Wish it was open Saturdays too but will definitely return.
