Excellent but overpriced
Posted on 06 / 16 / 2010
Hundred Monkeys is situated at the top of Glastonbury High Street, and has recently expanded into the space once occupied by the greengrocer. As well as providing extra seating, this has also allowed room for their own bakery, meaning that most (if not all) of the bread served in the cafe is baked on the premises.
The range of vegetarian options is very good, and there's usually at least one vegan dish (usually more) on the menu. The food is of an excellent standard, and the veggie options clearly aren't added as a simple afterthought. All food is freshly cooked, with a focus on organic and local ingredients.
Service can be a little on the slow side, and I've often been forgotten about when sat in the courtyard area. Prices are on the high side, but the food is probably the best on offer in Glastonbury, so it's easy to forgive the fact that it's a little overpriced. Vegetarian main meals hover around the £9 mark, but it's nice to see that they're priced below their meat equivalents.
The cafe is open from around 10am, seven days a week. Closing times seem to vary. At the time of writing, the cafe is open for evening meals, but there is no clear advertising indicating on what days.
