Come here regularly, as it's a fantastic little place.
Vivid is everything: cafe, bar, restaurant and is becoming the beating heart of a community.
You can get a really nice breakfast, including great eggs benedict.
Lunch includes sandwiches, wraps and Thai food. For dinner there is again Thai food.
The Thai food was introduced a little while ago and I have now tried most dishes. All of them have been great. The dinner deal for starter and main is great! All ingredients are fresh and it shows.
Vivid also serves good coffee with lovely cakes and cookies. Cakes include well known classics, but also slightly unusual combinations (lager and lime cake...)
The place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff and owners are very welcoming.
You can sit both inside and out and on a sunny day it is lovely seeing boats drifting past on the canal.
Would highly recommend this place, as it offers something for everybody.

Popped in here for a spot of lunch and tried the soup and sandwich deal. £3 Exceptional! Gorgeous spicy lentil and vegetable soup with a ham, gherkin and mustard mayo sandwich on granary bread! This little cafe is excellent and we ended up staying into the evening when it turns into a trendy bar offering delicious Thai style food as well as burgers, tempura vegetable platters and more... Nice range of beers and wine and it's a lovely atmosphere. It's become a real favourite! Will definately return for more.

Love this place - a tidy restaurant serving home made food with healthy, quality ingredients.

This is a place to chill and have a bite to eat or meet with friends over a glass of vino before hittng the town at the weekends. Cant fault the place you always get a warm welcome

My husband and I regularly visit the Vivid Lounge, as the friendly staff, good coffee and tasty, freshly prepared food keep us coming back. The atmosphere is relaxed and I love the modern decor. As a cafe/bar I've used it as pretty much everything! I've met people there for informal work meetings as well as had some great evenings with friends as the transition from cafe to bar is pretty much seamless. We also bring the kids on weekends for lazy breakfasts and lunches - we love it!
