Awesome!! - Edit

Ginger is a lovely little cafe in the centre of Halifax, right next to all of the main shops.
I have come here on many occasions, and the food is always excellent quality! I really recommend the vegan toasties, and often the food on the specials board- especially if it is curry based.
I have tried all of the desserts (all are vegan with many gf options) and i have to say that you need to try the fridge cake. It is very rich, but it is delicious, and i am not the one to tend to like rich things, but it is amazing! I usually buy three or four to take home too.
It is a small cafe, but there is always room, so i have never had to book. The couple who run it are lovely, and if you are in town, this is a great place to eat, not to mention how it's amazing value for money!

Good, homemade food - Edit

Small café, run by Clare and Mark, upstairs from Food Therapy healthfood store. Chalk boards list Meals by Mark, Cakes by Clare and soup-of-the-day – all vegan. Plus a regular menu with light bites, sandwiches, baked potatoes, wraps, toasties and salads. I started with a warm (it was a bitterly cold day in December) homemade cordial, selecting the Pennine plum flavour from a list of six. I enjoyed my meal of parsnip and mustard fritters served piping hot, with mini-potatoes, vegetables and gravy (£6.90). A pistachio-blackberry mini-pie with soy ice cream was a tasty dessert (homegrown blackberries). Total cost £12.80. Food service ends at 3 pm.

Pros: many vegan choices, fresh, homemade meals and desserts

cosy little cafe - Edit

This cafe is lovely. Situated above a health shop it's ideal- can do your food shopping and get lunch.
The menu changes so you can always have something different and the range of cakes is wonderful.

Homely foods. - Edit

A quaint little café, tucked up in the back of a health-food shop in Halifax (also a fantastic shop, with a brilliant fridge section, managed to pick up some Tempeh to try for the first time!). This café has an ever-changing specials menu, as well as a permanent assortment of dishes available with a good variety of vegan, or veganisable options. I ordered the special menu option of the ‘parsnip and chive fritters, with veg, potatoes and gravy’, whilst my mum ordered the ‘dips and strips’. Both dishes arrived very promptly and looked scrumptious. The fritters were fab, how scrummy, homely and wholesome, very tasty meal, very comfort foody. This was my first taste of vegan gravy too!
The décor was a bit tired and beat up sadly, and being upstairs with no lift meant it wasn't accessible to all, but I’d definitely call back for the food without doubt.

Great place to eat - Edit

Great place to eat with lots of choice for vegans. The braised tofu pie was wonderful and I was lost for choice with the puddings so had the strawberry and rhubarb crumble with soya custard, which was delicious and took a fridge cake and coconut macaroon home both were delicious too! This is a daytime cafe but the specials are restaurant quality whilst the prices are very reasonable. There's interesting stuff to look at on the walls and a very friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Good choice for vegans, Good value, Very friendly

Great little cafe - Edit

I cycled over from Leeds to have lunch at this well known and established veggie cafe in the centre of Halifax. It is situated above a very well stocked health food shop, well worth bringing a shopping list to restock your cupboards when calling in at the cafe. The cafe is small and cosy, with interesting bits and pieces on the walls, reviews, letters etc. The staff/owners are very friendly and provided a quick and attentive service to the mixed group of customers enjoying a Saturday lunch.
There is a good looking menu of breakfast items, hot and cold sandwiches and interesting salads both vegetarian and vegan, the specials board had a soup of the day and a varied selection of hot dishes, each sounding delicious, it was a difficult choice. I eventually decided on the mixed bean chilli stuffed burrito, served with a large salad and equally large portion of roasted new potatoes. It tasted excellent and was great value at around £6, and set me up nicely for the rest of my cycle ride. The cakes looked and sounded great, but, had no room left, will have to cycle over another day just for tea and cake.
Halifax is a great little town for a day trip, and has a perfect little cafe for great lunch.

Pros: Great food, Good choice, Good value
