Sumptuous, Scumptious, Appetising Energising !

Gorgeous Food created and delivered with flair and a smile.

A fine variety without leaving you lost with too much to choose from....but hey, go back another day...I do.

The food has been lovely each time, filling without feeling uncomfortable and generous - certainly hitting the spot, washed down with lovely Coconut milk coffee.

went on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed the "Sunday Roast Stack"......was back on the Wednesday to try the Buddha Bowl and this Saturday, its the "Breakfast".....but not fast, slow.

Pros: Adjacent to town centre, just a short walk., Situated away from the Town Centre.

Cons: Not (yet) open 7 days., Currently not open all Evenings, Not enough people know its there?

Lovely cafe with standard cafe type options

Had the soup - carrot and potato. Was hot and tasty and generous portion

My husband had the loaded hot dog. He said it was amazing and would deffo have again.

Wait times are a little long but this is because it's all freshly made, so totally worth it.

Ps. THEY HAVE BISCOFF HOT CHOCOLATE 🤤 I didn't get a chance to try it but deffo will next time.

Awesome Place - Lovely People - Just Go There

We never said this, but, were low on cash as we just got off some conservation ships so got water with the main meals... Which was blissfully refreshed with a hint of lemon and lime. Good times!

You will find amazing and compassionate people here who actually care about you.

We didn't know what to expect. We had the specials. The stack sandwich was mega!! Can't say I've had anything like that before and it was great! Super tasty and satisfying. Would have had a second if we didn't order 3 mains hahaha

Anyway, my partner was stuffed with yunminess too. The hummus baked spud was great!


Lovely owners. Attracting all the right people.... Someone paid for our meal secretly. I mean really? What's going on!?

We want more.

Pros: Super tasty! , Unreachable! , Welcoming, warm, caring, considerate, human.

Gorgeous plant based food!

We really enjoyed our visit to this friendly, healthy cafe. the food is innovative and tasty- they offer naughty treats, healthy meals and tasty light bites. We went for light bites and were surprised how filling they were, great portion sizes. Gorgeous coffee, they offer herbal teas and have a good selection of drinks available too.
Good location, close to town- we will be back, this is a promise!

Pros: Friendly staff, Beautiful setting, clean and interesting arty wall, Really gorgeous wholesome food
