Lovely cute cafe in the heart of the North Laines. Staff are friendly, it's got a really chilled atmosphere and they do incredible vegetarian and vegan options. I personally recommend the Big Vegan - a vegan fry up that really hits the spot, hangover or...More

Popped in for lunch yesterday and didn't regret it. The veggie burger was the nicest I've ever had. Chips we're delicious and the staff so friendly. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone, veggies and carnivores alike.
