Well I prefer a nice beef burger but my wife is vegan so I am writing this for her. She had a vegan burger, sweet potato fries and for desert a blueberry "cheesecake". She stated the burger was delicious and very well prepared. Complaints were that it has slightly slow service and limited seating.

There is a very good vegan spot. Food is awesome. However they really could work on service and meeting the needs of those patrons with out being asked. I would still recommend just be patient.

This restaurant now is open for longer hours and the food is wonderful, from breakfasts to lunch and later, with a brisk takewaway business obviously for workers in the city. The menu has a wide variety of meals and juices and is all four of us tried different dishes and all were outstanding. The service was excellent and give this eatery 10/10.

I enthusiastically called this restaurant trying to make a booking for a Sat night with friends (fellow-writers with whom I would be participating in a book festival). I was told they 'no longer take bookings'. When I asked whether one should normally be able to get a table if you arrived at 7.30pm on a Sat, I was told they don't know, it's 'first come first serve'. I said in that case we will then rather go elsewhere and they put down the phone. Who would make plans to go to a restaurant on this basis, risking being shown away and having to walk around on a winter's evening trying to find something else? A shame. I would have liked to try it. I certainly won't now.

Not everyone will get excited about this, but anyone with a vision for the planet will acknowledge this is where food of the future is going!
Great to see courageous people step up and open a 100% Vegan restaurant.
Food is fresh and tasty and definitely invites to come back and explore more off the menu. Go support!!
