First Review by Miggi

Great vegan selection with skilful culinary expertise - Edit

Another gem for vegans has materialised here. There are several enticing vegan options on the menu, which are supplemented by the daily specials board, which was all vegan when we lunched there. The flavours are well thought out and balanced with skill. For example, the complimentary jug of water, flavoured with basil, strawberries and agave was subtle, but worked perfectly, unlike the unsatisfying and insipid flavoured waters that are available commercially. Four of us had lunch, three vegan and one vegetarian, two of us having starters (one soup, which was definitely a cut above the norm, and one French Toast, perhaps an unusual starter, but delicious and worked well. One main of beetroot patties (great flavour and texture) with chips and salad, two corgetti dishes with a very impressive tomato sauce, and halloumi kebabs with vegan potato salad (mayo made with aquafaba) and bean salad. Seeing the other review, this could well have been vegan halloumi, but I’m not sure. Great cakes for dessert.
I was very glad to have chosen this venue to invite my friends (who I hadn’t seen for about ten years) to. The seating area is light, airy and comfortable, music, when playing, unobtrusive. We are looking forward to eating here again.

Great value vegan food, prepared with a lot of thought and expertise. Recommended.

Lots of vegan options - Edit

It was great to find plenty of vegan options on the menu here. The all day menu has brunch/lunch dishes like scrambled tofu, avocado smash, wraps with vegan halloumi etc. Specials board also had vegan dishes.
The smoked tofu scramble was great, and v different to other provision locally. Thick slices of toast topped with scramble, mushrooms and tomatoes, served with rocket salad and vegan mayo (the chef popped out to let me know they make their own vegan mayo).
Looking forward to trying more next time I'm in this part of town!

Pros: choices, simple but tasty lunch

Cons: opening hours not yet clear, serves meat
