Respond to Review of InSpiral Lounge
Review: I've visited this cafe a few times but last time there had been a revelation. I had a casual peer in the window, wondering if I'd remembered correctly the price of a cup of tea (I had and it's a single English pound) when a poster in the window informed me that if I stepped inside I could purchase a vegan ice cream made almost entirely of raw ingredients. Sugar free and with plenty of choice of flavours. Confronted by information such as this, I have a tendency to become a giddy saucer-eyed childlike version of myself, and nothing will stand between me and the ice cream. I think my eagerness amused the friendly chap behind the counter who I noticed looking bemusedly at my facial expression as I was reading the poster. I tried samples of the vanilla and mint choc chip ice cream and opted for a scoop of the raw chocolate chunk (Well I had to try as many as possible, it might be a while before I was back!) Would it be melodramatic to say that I nearly wept with joy upon recieving, and then with sorrow upon finishing my treat? Yes, it was that good. Go and try the ice cream. Ah yes, they serve other things too. Extremely nice things, and you can get yourself a decent meal to take out or eat in for around Â£4. Curries, stews, little pizzas, tofu skewers, burgers.. all vegan and all looks enticing but I have yet to try anything savory from In Spiral. I find it difficult to get past the ice creams and stunningly rich, dark chocolate cookies. Some of the desserts are expensive but this reflects the quality of the ingredients used (often raw, organic and unusual!) The atmosphere in this place is fantastic. really chilled out thanks to the music, colour scheme and location (right by the canal with a conservatory and some outdoor seating.) There's internet access and a couple of sofas and nobody will rush you. Stays open late and often there are live music or DJ events in the evenings, which you can enjoy while soaking up the lovely atmosphere, with an organic drink or two.
