A favourite eating place! - Edit

Been going here for years, and never been disappointed. Always a good range of choices - bean burger, lasagne, curry, two quiches plus the choice of about six salads. Equally good choice of drinks, although coffee a bit weak. Staff as always very friendly. There's a vegan group starting first Saturday of the month too, may see you there!

Small veggie wholefood Cafe - Edit

This is a small cafe at the back of the Waverley Health food store.
It serves reasonably priced veggie food with some vegan options. I find the portions a good size and you can choose the size of your salad to have with your main course.
The selections vary from day to day and week to week.
Sometimes have to wait if you hit a busy spot as a lot of the locals seem to pop in for lunch.

Pros: Nice selection of veggie food, Friendly staff, Home cooked

Cons: Can get busy at times during the Lunch period

Nice food, tad over-priced. Few other issues - Edit

I visit this place fairly often. It's a small vegetarian restaurant, they do normally have some vegan choice, but I don't think they go out of their way to make vegan options.

They do lovely soya lattes, and nice smoothies, though smoothie choice is limited. The 'restaurant' itself is in the back end of a health food shop, and beneath an art gallery. The food is prepared daily and home cooked. When I ask about the vegan options, the owner/chef does seems to have knowledge of what a vegan is and helpful in informing me what ingredients are in various items. Last time I had a meal there, the vegan options included bean burgers and potato cakes, both were delicious. There is always a good choice of salads, which look yummy, though they use some non-vegan things in some of them, like mayo. There's a selection of home cooked cakes.

Because this is a small place, the food choice is limited. It's pretty standard veggie fair (lasagne, curry, baked potatos, salads etc with some variation and new items in each of my visits) but all home cooked. I do feel the food, considering the standard nature of it, lack of options and considering the restaurant building/location, is a tad overpriced. Last time I looked one could pay best part of a fiver (or more) for baked potato, filling and salad, when just a few shops down the road you can get a massive bag of chips for £1.50. And last time I had salad, the portions were not generous in the least. My other complaint is the chairs - they are fold-away and a bit flimsy cause of it. I'm of rotund build and feel like I'm gonna crash through 'em! But even my less generously built friend feels a tad unstable on them. The restaurant, which is not open long, gets pretty busy at lunchtime, you might be hard pushed to get a seat (allbeit a flimsy one) at peak times.

As for the staff, the owner is friendly enough when you ask her about things, but she can be a little huffy or distracted at all other times, and thus maybe what the other complaint here is about. I wouldn't say the service is bad, (they've always been quite accommodating), but it is not overly personable and can seem quite aloof at times. I echo the other review, in that, whilst I personally don't like pushy-over-friendly-over-chatty-loud staff - the occasional smile would go a long way here. It would make them seem more approachable.

Nice homecooked food. Ok place. Considering this is the only veggie place I know of in Carmarthen, it's not a bad option.

Pros: Homecooked, Some vegan options, Only veggie place in Carmarthen

Cons: Over priced, limited options, Horrible flimsy chairs!

Not so Good - Edit

Poor quality bland food, also they make sandwiches for the wholefood shop which it is located in, this includes fish sandwiches, so the restaurant is veggie food but they prepare fish in the same kitchen. I did not realise this until I had tried the food, otherwise I would not have eaten there. I spoke to the staff about this issue and they really did not care.
