Stopped by for lunch. Great veggie and vegan food for lunch and really reasonably priced. Tasty. It's a little dark down there and felt a little sticky but i suppose as it's usually a gig venue that is to be expected.

As you would expect. Underground and dimly lit. However I had a jackfruit burger and vegan banana shake. Very reasonable prices and well cooked and very tasty. Good service and atmosphere. Most enjoyable
