Lovely little place in town

What a cute little place! My first time visiting today but I've wanted to go for ages. They change the menu every week but it's always fully vegan, fresh ingredients and friendly staff. They even grow a lot of their food in their own allotment! Really enjoyed the meal today - chickpea sandwich with salad and homemade paprika crisps, followed by an absolutely awesome creme brulee! Was super cheap for 2 courses and a drink! Only £9!!!

My favourite place in Coventry

I've been going to the Pod for for 5 months now and I simply love everything about the place - the delicious and healthy food, the fact they grow their own veg locally, the friendly staff, positive vibes, artsy atmosphere, low prices and that it's an all vegan place! I only wish they were open on Mondays, so I could indulge in their lovely food every single work day.

good food, lovely atmosphere

Had the wrap and the pakora. Both good! The only thing I would add is sweetners for coffee/tea. Not everyone ‘does’ sugar :)

Pros: good food, cheap, nice atmosphere

Cons: only sugar for drinks

an amazing place

i finally made the time to come here for lunch, and it was every bit as lovely as i'd anticipated.
it's a beautifully designed space with amazing food (at least from what i've gathered so far - i tried their pod bowl and chaat wrap), and i'm pretty much in love with the whole concept.
will definitely be coming here regularly. do yourself a favour and do the same :)

Pros: everything

fantastic food

Absolutely great cafe. First time visiting their new premises and was not disappointed. The Pod has great ethics - positive attitude towards mental health, connecting communities through food and not least, make delicious, fresh vegan food at an affordable cost. The new premises are great and have a welcoming chilled out vibe. Check out everything else they do like the time and food unions.... if only more places had the same kind of ethics, the world would be a much better place!

Yummy afforable freshly cooked Vegan food

The Pod Cafe is amazing. I eat here all the time. Its in the City Centre and is very cheap. You can have a main meal for £3 and pudding for £1.50! They always update the menu which includes dishes from around the world so there is always something new to try. The atmosphere is great and so are the staff.

Pros: Great tasting food, Friendly Staff, Nice vibes

Cons: No cons just all good!
