First Review by markalroberts

Surprisingly good - Edit

This place is a bit of an institution in Cambridge. Situated at the heart of the old town, folklore has it that the university tried to close it down but the students managed to get them to overturn their decision. Surrounded by high profit-margin chains and exclusive boutiques, I could believe it.
You can actually get *good* chips for less than two quid, which is a small miracle in itself.
They will do you a chip butty (pita filled with chips and a good dollop of hummus on top) for not much more.
It must be the student influence, but they do mention "vegan options" on the chalk board outside, and they do at least appear to know what a vegan is, which I'm always so grateful for!
If you want to up the ante, you could go for the falafel or apparently the veggie burger is vegan (not 100% confirmed that yet though!) they have a rough and ready seating area upstairs and you can even get a sneaky glass of wine to go with your feast.
Yep, they still predominantly serve animals, but, for Cambridge, this ain't too bad.

Pros: know what a vegan is, mention "vegan options", cheaper than most in Cambridge
