Incredible food, incredible value

Unlike a well-reviewed place down the road, La Valle uses the finest ingredients and is generous with them. Given the rents in that area, nourishing food of this quality is an incredible bargain.
Lovely staff too.

Simple meal

This place is counter serve: you ask for a main protein, plus two sides, and they scoop it out for you to take out or to eat in basic surroundings in the back. Nothing fancy, but I wanted something on the healthy side and this place fit the bill. The price was very reasonable, and I was very satisfied with my meal.

Note: this place is no longer open for breakfast—they open around 10:30am and close at 4:30pm. Also, they evidently no longer offer all-you-can-eat deals.

Variety of great choices

Amazing range of salads, which were vegan. Had a small box which was more than adequate. The three salads I chose were very tasty. Definitely go back again. Great for a healthy lunch, and close to Kings Cross Station. The staff member was friendly and helpful too.

Tasty food

They have many many options, different kind of salads ,potatoes, mushrooms and creative dishes, spicy or not you won't be disappointed! The place inside it's really cute but you can take away the food if you want (in paper boxes!)

Pros: Nice vibe, good variety of food, vegan friendly

Nutritious and delicious

Great to get an exciting vegan salad buffet which is an underrepresented offer in London. Sweet potato salad overdelivered with a smoky caramelised finish. The small serving is a generous amount for intermediate hunger levels.

Pros: Lovely staff, Relaxing vibe, Good value

Cons: Overlooped playlist

Tasty and cheap

Tasty food and amazing value!

Lovely selection of colourful and tasty vegan salads plus a vegan moussaka, rice and beans. You can go up and serve yourself as many times as you want and for £8.50 that’s amazing value! They had vegan cake too which looked delicious.

Pros: Lots of vegan choice, Affordable , Tasty and varied

This is a joke, right?

I saw positive reviews so decide to have breakfast there.

When I arrived it looked promising, lots of good food, croissants..... so I asked what is vegan, the staff said, well nothing is.
For vegan we only have mushrooms and a raw cake.

So I thought I'd have a juice, well, sir, we're out of juices, the machine is broken.

Okay, give me a vegan milk or chocolate milk, I'm really sorry, sir, we don't have that.

So I had to leave because there was nothing vegan for breakfast, passing by on the way back and maybe it would be better on other times of the day, now as a vegan, don't go there for breakfast.

Pros: None

Cons: Everything, Not a place for vegan breakfast

Nice lunch, friendly staff

Came in, was bit confused by the layout and pricing, stood there having a look for maybe a minute, staff came over and quickly explained. Had a decent sized sort of cardboard carton of buffet food for £4.50, warm. Vegan moussaka was nice (although I'm never huge on vegan cheese and that was still not the best), good rice and butter bean curry, plus plenty of salad.

Pros: Good value for central London, Very quick lunch food because self-service buffet

Fresh and interesting food!

So many vegan options, all very flavorful and vibrant. The vegan moussaka was fantastic. Very friendly staff. Reasonably priced for the amount and variety of dishes to choose from(6.50 for breakfast, 7.50 for lunch and dinner).

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Friendly staff, Cozy atmosphere

Fresh and delicious all you can eat buffet /w good vegan options!

✓ Vegetarian & Vegan Options
WHAT I HAD: All You Can Eat Lunch/Dinner Buffet [£6.95], Raw Carrot Cake [£3.50]

I was in London earlier than I expected and had some time to kill before meeting a friend. I came across Foodilic and the food on display was fresh and inviting. So, I decided to have my brunch here as I was starving. I went for the All You Can Eat Lunch Buffet which seemed like a good deal for £6.95 when they had a number of Vegan dishes too – tons of fresh vegetables and grains in exciting forms, there was tabbouleh and vegan moussaka! For a buffet, all the options I had were flavourful and tasty too, not bland or generic salads. The raw carrot cake was delicious too with hints of spice. It’s raw so the texture was grainy but still surprisingly moist.

The staff were friendly and nice. The shop has quite a number of tables and seats that isn’t tightly packed even though the space isn’t massive. I would recommend Foodilic for fresh and delicious food at low prices, especially if you’re really hungry – the all you can eat buffet is such a steal!

Pros: Fresh and Delicious Food, Variety of Vegetarian & Vegan Options, Cheap and Convenient

Cons: Not a lot of seating

Fantastic Vegan breakfast!

Just popped in for breakfast, it's 5-6 minute walk from Kings Cross station.
Great options for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters - and good luck finding anywhere with an all-you-can-eat full English buffet for £6.50 anywhere else this close to central London!!!

Pros: Clean, separate utensils for self-service, Great selection of vegan options, Unlimited food at a great price!!

Cons: Opens at 09:00 on a Saturday

Fresh, friendly and tasty

Lots of fresh vegan salads and an excellent vegan moussaka, what's not to like. Buffet with a strongly greek slant (though not exclusively), the salads are excellent and diverse, and the vegan hot food (only two options when I visited towards the end of the day) tasty and substantial. I think I was too late for vegan cake. There's also what looks like good vegan breakfast options. All in a nicely presented style with friendly helpful staff. Oh, and it was £6.95 which is absurdly cheap for such fresh food in central London.

Pros: Good vegan food and lots of it. Low prices

Cons: Served meat

6 of the 7 salads vegan, and vegan moussaka, vegan sausages, vegan falafel, vegan beans, and rice. All you can eat buffet £7. Shame they serve meat and dairy of course but friendly staff and nice setting.

Cons: Meat and dairy

Best płace for quick meal

All you can eat for lunch 7£!!!! Amazing :D Big choice of salads and different veggies, falafels, moussaka, rice and bulgur, great for hungry people in a rush. You can also have a takeaway box for 4£. The only bad thing was noise but it’s popular in London. Worth going if you are in the Kings Cross area (the raw vegan cakes are bomb!)

Pros: Mostly vegan menu, All you can eat fo 7£

Cons: Not warm enough food, Noisy

vegan lasagna!!!

I was quite surprised how delicious and flavorful their vegan dishes were! I usually prefer eating at vegan restaurant but this one is an exception :)
I tired a berry raw vegan cake, which was just ok. (Someone else makes the cake).

AMAZING value for money

Lovely servers, they give really large portions - any main with 2 portions of salad for £7.20! These are big plates... also the only place I know that doesn’t charge extra for non-dairy milk - £2.10 for an almond/soy/oat milk flat white/latte/cappuccino !
