Respond to Review of The Whole Meal Cafe

Review: Haven't met a vegetarian in real life who likes this place yet. There is a vegan choice everyday but it is limited and they are obsessed with cheese and can't seem to figure out how to make vegan cakes or desserts. Everything is cooked in advance and reheated in a microwave. Some days you get lucky and get one of their two good meals (Nut burgers and Nut crumble probably the best) otherwise it is veggie stew or curry and it tastes the same everytime. The soup is mostly vegan and they make their own bread. It isn't cheap either. Staff are friendly but mostly not veggie and since they do the cooking it may be the reason for the unimaginative food. There are better non veg places to eat locally which do veg food so I would personally only eat here if a)you refuse to eat in non veg restaurants or b)you haven't eaten here before and you like pretty basic stew/soup/salad sort of food or c) you aren't vegan or d) you can't be bothered to cook and live pretty close and want a healthy takeaway.

Wanted to add they now 4/11 do vegan cake, not great vegan cake, but vegan cake nevertheless. I think we call call this progress. Pricy though!

I totally agree with this review. And add that the food is bland et the same time as being overly salty, unimaginative, over cooked, "dead", stodgy, boring and over priced. However, it is The only veg restaurant in Streatham so I guess until someone comes along offering something better the owners won't change it for the better, cos they're probably making a Mint. Having said all that, the service is very friendly and it's got a nice little vibe to the place
