Respond to Review of Earth Cafe
by PJ

Review: Earth have recently lowered their prices somewhat and given the cafe (it's not a restaurant, you collect the food yourself diner-style from a row of various foods - though you have to ask the assistant to get them from behind the glass counter) a bit of a tranformation but it still has a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, the food is still overpriced - an example is £2.60 for a vegetable burger (yep, vegetables, so cheap enough for them to make) with gravy - no bun, no salad (salad costs extra) and the portions of the "main meals" are small. To make a proper main meal, you have to buy extra things. The price used to reach around £10 or more for a reasonably-sized meal but now it's it's around £8 (more if you're quite hungry). On the plus side, it has some nice decoration, the water is "free" (obviously recouped by the costs of the meals), service is usually quite fast. All of the food is vegan at time of writing this, but for some reason they offer cow's milk (to offer choice so I'm told - but then does that mean the food might suddenly not be vegan without notice, for customer choice? It's a worry, as there is nothing in the cafe that says the food is vegan, so you have to ask the assistants each time and who knows how well-trained they are?)

I run earth cafe and am disappointed by this review. All our food is and always has been totally vegan. We do offer customers soya or dairy milk for their hot drinks as most are not vegan and would not eat with us if they had to use soya milk in their teas and coffees. Our mission is to persuade non-vegans that vegan food is fantastic but first we have to get them in! I also think £2.60 for one of our burgers is a great price - they are substantial, home-made and not just vegetables. Check all our prices on the website! Thanks for the review.
