Cute cafe, tasty food, great value

Posted on 07 / 27 / 2012

This is a lovely volunteer-run cafe in a working-class area of Nottingham. The food was delicious and great value - we got two meals and drinks for around £6. We had a samosa salad and a house salad. About half the menu is marked as vegan or vegan adaptable, and there are gluten-free options too. The volunteers were nice and friendly. Well worth supporting. They will be having a summer break in August 2012, and will have new opening times in September - check their website for details: www.crocuscafe.com

Pros: Tasty food, great value, Cosy, nice space, Volunteer-run, community-focused

A wonderful, volunteer led cafe

The crocus has been the first step towards vegetarianism for so many people. With award winning food, huge portions and ridiculously cheap prices the Crocus continues to impress me. The Cafe has a firm ethical grounding and sources much of its food locally as well as serving fairtrade and organic products whenever possible.

The Cafe is 100% vegetarian and always has vegan options, the only problem you are likely to have is deciding what to eat!

If you live in Nottingham, or you're visiting, make sure you make it down to the Crocus.

Pros: Amazing food, Great Value, Lovely people
Cons: Huge Portions!
