Nice lunch, relaxing atmosphere

We decided to go here for lunch the other day, as we'd never been before. It was nice, and there were lots of choices. Unlike some places, who offer lunch-y things, and dinner-y meals, this was more of a lunch or breakfast place, but that's not a bad thing. My other half had the all-day Vegan breakfast, and I had the toasted polenta W/mushrooms, rocket, garlic pesto, etc. We both had a fresh juice, and we shared a piece of Vegan chocolate cake-all was absolutely delicious! I think it's all reasonably priced, as it was very filling. The Vegan options are clearly labeled, and there is plenty to choose from.

Pros: Plenty of Vegan options, Really lovely food, Nice atmosphere
Cons: It is hard to spot at first, Not a massive place, but some outdoors, Not 100% Vegan

An immediate favourite

From the outside it looks like a tea shop or greasy spoon cafe. Walk through the sliding door and enter a world of delicious food. Although Vegetarian the number of Vegan and Gluten Free options are impressive. The polenta and home-made vegan cheese are fantastic and the prices are cheap. The thing that should get you through the door though is the cake. I had Vanilla and Coconut today and have tried others before and beside the very generous sizes the taste is intense and I have never eaten moister cake. The staff are very friendly too and there is free wifi too.

Worth a visit any time for any reason. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Pros: Home-made and cheap food, Lots of Vegan and GF options, Friendly Staff
Cons: Easy to walk past it, Not in the town centre

I visited The Almond Tree for the first time a few weeks ago and I loved it. I had a delicious meal (toasted polenta with mushrooms and rocket, my friend had a vegan full english) plus cake and we sampled both their home made vegan cheese and their home made hazelnut spread. Everything was delicious and the couple who run the cafe are super friendly. I'll definitely be going back and I can't wait to try their sunday roast.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, Great gluten free options, Homemade vegan cheese
Cons: Small space
