My friend and I went to Mad Cucumber on this weekend. The food was exquisite! So flavorful – I have heard great things about it and seen some decent photographs on Instagram and Facebook. Regardless of the possibility that you're not vegetarian or vegan it’s a pleasant change and the food is so wonderful you won't be missing your meat! You will definitely enjoy your visit. It was quality healthy food, good atmosphere, pleasant staff will return and the costs are incredible as well. Without a doubt visit!

Pros: Quality food, Nice ambiance, nice staff
Cons: a lil bit late service, nothing, noithing

Delicious vegan cake!

I highly recommend the Mad Cucumber. I only wish it had been around when I started uni and that I had discovered it sooner! They made me an absolutely delicious chocolate layered vegan cake for my birthday (very last minute of me, I asked the day before and they were still able to make it for me). SO good... all my non-vegan friends and family that tried it loved it, too.

Lucky residents of Bournemouth having the Mad Cucumber. Went there in mid December 2014 with my parents (who live there and go often). It was packed out. I had a fudge brownie which was lovely and rich and a big pot of tea. Lovely atmosphere too and very friendly staff. Tried to go there a couple days later but they have a massive closure period for xmas and new year unfortunately.

Pros: Big pot of tea, Friendly staff, Welcoming atmosphere
Cons: long holiday closure period

I've just moved to Bournemouth and was so happy to find a vegan restaurant in town! It was my first visit and had the enchiladas and garlic bread. Yum! I will definitely be going back as the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly! Good vibes all around!

I loved everything about this place. Great atmosphere and friendly people. The food was great too. The mushroom stroganoff with brown rice is perfect, as was the sundried tomato and pesto pasta and the garlic bread with cheese. The dessert counter is particularly impressive, I had to try three. Will definitely be going back.

Pros: Variety, Friendly, Good food

We've been here three times now, for breakfast, soup and the mushroom stroganoff. The food is delicious and there is a great choice! Would definitely recommend :)

My girlfriend and I tried out this cafe while on holiday in England. We ordered the pasta and the curry, both of which were very hearty and filling. Personally I preferred the curry, it was delicious! We also had a wonderful, quite sizable vegan hot chocolate and a smoothie which was thick and delicious. The food was fresh, very filling, and very tasty. We also tried six of their vegan dessert options (3 for a pound) and were very happy with all of them. The carrot cake was our favourite, but they were all wonderful. Very polite servers and a wonderful, homey space. We will be back before we leave!

Bounemouth's No1 Vegan Place

Posted on 10 / 19 / 2013

The Mad Cucumber really puts Bournemouth on the UK Map of Vegan Restaurants. They recently hosted Bournemouth's Veggie and Vegan Society and we were all delighted with the food, drinks and service. Freshly cooked food is especially appreciated. These people care about what they offer us to eat. It's a big building and needs plenty of patronage in order to grow and survive. So check it out and do yourself a favour, you'll love the food! Note find Mad C on Bournemouth Gum Tree Misc.

The Mad Cucumber (vegan lounge) is a new addition to the recently revamped Triangle area of Bournemouth. It is also, as far as i know , the first all vegan cafe in the area. The cafe is modern and yet homely with tables and sofas to suit. The food is fresh and very well prepared/cooked. The raw chocolate cake containing raspberries was VERY nice!

Pros: clean and comfortable, fresh high quality food, friendly owners
Cons: location is about far from town centre

We found this place when on holiday n the area. We liked it so much we went back the next day.

Relaxed vegan cafe run by very lovely and interesting people.

Strawberry crepe with chocolate sauce and a scoop of vegan ice cream is highly recommended.

Pros: All vegan
Cons: It's nowhere near where I live...

Great to have a vegan restaurant in Bournemouth.

Mad Cucumber is a light, airy restaurant with comfortable seats and sofas, serving fresh vegan food.

From the limited main course menu I had a vegetable curry, which was to my taste but my companion felt lacked spice. The choice of desserts included an apple crumble and a variety of cakes, which were scrumptious. There is a great choice of imaginative smoothies. Price for the two course plus smoothie was just under £12 a head.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere makes for an enjoyable experience. Mad cucumber will be a must on my visits to Bournemouth.

Pros: Pleasant and welcoming space., Friendly service., Great smoothies and desserts.
Cons: Limited main course choice.
