Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff. Vegetarian and vegan options are clearly labelled in the menu (the menu is divided into sections - Vegan, Vegetarian, Meat, Fish)which is very useful. Food is very good, good quality ingredients, freshly prepared. It is a very good option if you are with non vegetarian friends. The vegan dishes are nice, but they are made only with vegetables (and polenta); they happen to be vegan because they have just veggies, but they are very low in protein. I would suggest using some beans, nuts or other vegan proteins in their vegan dishes.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good food
Cons: Expensive wine and beer

Great vegan cupcakes

Cakes by Ms Cupcake, made using polenta (so gluten free as well). A great place for coffee and cake in Soho! They have some great sounding vegan options on the menu as well, to the extent that vegan food seems to be a priority (listed first, not just an afterthought)!
