An excellent award-winning vegetarian/vegan café – although they claim that around 60% of their customers aren’t vegetarians. No reservations – so just turn up.
The atmosphere is cottagey, with beams, and bare wooden tables.
Chef/proprietor Sharon Meijland offers the likes of ‘Garlic Bread with Sun-Dried Tomato or Sun-Dried Chili’ and ‘Goats’ Cheese Salad’ among the short list of starters.
At least four daily specials are made each day – dishes such as‘Latvian Potato Bake’ (potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, garlic & herbs with a crunchy gluten-free topping), ‘Tajine Pruneaux’ (courgettes, broccoli and green peppers with tamarind and borlotti beans, on prune-flavoured couscous) and ‘Kala Chana Curry’ (red chick peas with potatoes and red peppers – lightly curried – with chapatti and brown rice) setting the style.
Desserts include the likes of Apple Pie, Carrot Cake and Swedish soya ice cream.
