I pop in to The Kitchen every time I'm in Bolton town centre in lunchtime or if I happen to wait for a train, as it's near the rail station. Apart from the mains, there is a usual choice of two or three soups on the menu which are very creative and vary from day to day - I especially love their cashew nut + celery soup, watercress + spinach soup and lentil+miso soup.
A falafel / vegetable kofta meal with hummus, salads and pitta bread are available every day and are also very tasty (photo attached).
And if you have a sweet tooth, there is a vegan chocolate fudge cake or a lemon drizzle poppy-seed cake to go with your coffee.
The members of staff are very friendly and easy-going.
The atmosphere here is relaxed. You can sit at the window on a high stool, read a newspaper and watch the world passing by.
