Day time is a restaurant - amazing veggie/vegan fast food! Great milkshake! Children are allowed too. Does obviously have the dingy sticky floor, but who cares! Staff weren’t all that attentive but oh well. Wouldn’t put me off going regularly!

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

If you’re veggie or vegan this is the best place in town to find a great lunch in a cool location. In fact you don’t have to be veggie or vegan, I’m not but I love their range of foods. Free refills on your hot...More
