Cosy, quaint vegetarian cafe

Posted on 03 / 30 / 2015

Extensive menu with specials each day.
The portions are generous and there are interesting salads.
I had a celeriac and parsnip bake.
It was tasty but very dry (needed a sauce or gravy) and had half mashed vegetables in it. It was dolloped on the plate and did not look attractive. Perhaps it would have been better served in a small bowl.
However, the cafe was very popular and I would certainly visit again.

Pros: Tasty salads, Pleasant atmosphere, Reasonably priced
Cons: Presentation of some dishes
  • mostly-vegetarian

Veggie Family Dining

Posted on 04 / 21 / 2014

Thyme to eat is a family favourite as my husband and kids are all veggie. Since my daughter became vegan in the new year it's invaluable as a place to eat out in town. Also great to know we can pop in for tea and cakes as no where else in town does vegan cakes.

Pros: Family Friendly, Lots Of Choice, Vegan And Gluten Free Items On Menu
Cons: Although Resonance Priced For Amounts Served Cost
