I have been having my lunch at toucan now for over 10 years everyday, as b4 the cafe I was buying my lunch in their fantastic shop downstairs, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. It's reasonably priced and the tastes and flavours of the foods are to die for, if u r ever in the area do yourself a favour and go in and try, it'll b the best thing u have ever done. The staff are so helpful and friendly, nothing is too much which all adds to the amazing ambience of the place, I really don't know what I did before toucan cafe. Dan James

We stopped for a cup of tea, and ended up with a fab meal. These people really understand excellent food, and it was bliss to have tasty wholesome food (and with more imagination than the usual veggie option of food full of cheese and cream). We went back the next day for a takeaway picnic, which we enjoyed in the New Forest on the way back home. Wish I lived nearer to eat there more often.
It's rare to get such good veggie food outside of Brighton or London.

I often stop off at this little place after going to the Farmer's Market in Minehead on a Friday. Over the past year they have had a new cook and she runs an enticing and healthy operation with a regular variety of soups (eg. hot and sour), savoury tarts, delicious cakes etc. These are a cut above the normal vegetarian stodge that many cafes offer - this is both seasonal, global and delicious. They are open all day (it's upstairs in a light sunny room) have free wifi and friendly local staff.
