Review: The window is metal wired and you enter through what seems to be a small door. I guess it's probably a regular door but seems small for the rectangular space that makes up the cafe. There's a vintage looking computer in the front corner which you might be able to use for internet. There is also wifi. The decor is scruffy. Not sure if they were aiming for that but they might have been. It is a cooperative and has a punk/ anarchist/ Marxist vibe. There were quite a few people sitting about talking, hardly anyone was eating. There was no soap in the toilet. I'm assuming they had soap in the kitchen... It's organic food with mainly burgers and a few other things like nachos and sausage and chips. There are children's sized portions too. Desserts include cheesecake which I've been told is very good. Unfortunately there wasn't any when I went. After using my antibacterial hand sanitizer I had a punk burger which was a burger with bacon, cheese, salad and mayo. The bun had herbs in it and the burger patty was a soy one. I think they make them on site. It was decent. I had a peanut banana smoothie which was pretty good. This is more of a healthy version of fast food as opposed to substitute McDonalds like Next Generation and Red Veg. Service was helpful and prompt but he didn't do anything about the lack of soap in the toilet. Value is very good at just over a fiver for the above. I'm not sick yet so I'm guessing they had soap in the kitchen but no soap in the toilet - has to be a three for that.
