Review: Though it's open for breakfasts and lunches, too, I can speak best of dinners at Cornucopia, which are always really flavourful and served up in generous portions. It's a simple and relaxed place - a cafe moreso than a restaurant where you step up to the counter and will have a choice of five or six main courses, with at least a couple of vegan options, plus ten salads - five regulars and five daily specials - again with vegans well-catered for (check the blackboards for details of exactly what's in each dish and what diets they're suited to). For 12.50 or 12.95, depending on your chosen main option, you'll get hearty portion served up onto your plate with the chance to choose two salads as accompaniment - many of them very substantial in their own right. Even if you arrive raging hungry, don't imagine you need anything else! Those with smaller appetites might prefer to stick with the salads alone. Cornucopia is so popular that it can be busy at the counter and hard to see all the choices at times, but the staff are always very helpful and there's never any sense of pressure. Happily, a short while ago, the owners were able to take on the adjacent building to expand and it can now offer a lot more seating. This is still not always enough to avoid the need for customers to share tables at the very busiest points, but I've experienced this just once since the expansion and I'd consider myself a regular. Also new are later opening hours - extending to 22.30 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays - often with a harpist playing gently in the background. Cornucopia has a good commitment to using organic produce (again there's a blackboard setting out just what ingredients used are organic, including all their soy-based products, thereby ensuring they're GM-free).
