My favourite local shop!
Posted on 03 / 21 / 2011
I was surprised this wasn't listed on Happy Cow already so I submitted the info, hope it's okay to do a review as well...
I regularly go to this place for a take away lunch or to pick up wholefood staples such as fruit, beans and nuts (or perhaps a cheeky bar of chocolate). They often seem to get new products in to try out, and staff are friendly and helpful.
If you're going to get lunch from the counter my recommendations are the Mexican pasty (spicy beans and veg in tomato sauce in puff pastry), and the chocolate coated flapjack, which seems to contain a lot more interesting things than flapjacks normally do, such as coconut and dried fruit. The chocolate triangle cake is really good too, unfortunately for me that's not always vegan as they make it from the ends of the other cakes they've made, and have to save up enough vegan cake before a batch gets made.
I also like the cauliflower and potato pasties they do, and the tomato and garlic sos-rolls provided they're warm, as well as the falafel rolls with hummous and salad, or the nut burger rolls. The samosas seem to go down very well with a lot of people.
They're closed for the next couple of days for redecoration, and I've just passed by at gone 9pm, and the proprietor was still painting away, how's that for dedication? I think they'll be re-open from 24 March 2011.
Friendly staff, Well stocked for size of shop, Tasty take-away food
Sometimes crowded at busy times
