A true delight... Just heard they've closed now... Sad... They had Loads of Vegetarian options and even accommodated the Vegans too... A yummy something for all appetites and Christian the host made us feel like royalty! Homely and awesome value for money - with an epic outside area for these gorgeous Summer nights!

If you're looking to be looked after beautifully, much some tasty treats and enjoy some time under the trees then this is the spot. Sadly the children's play equipment went (Grinchis neighbours one assumes) but there are chalk-boards and plenty of space for smalls to explore.

Went to dinner with my boyfriend, the food was amazing- great vegetarian options too- and the wine list excellent and reasonably priced. Our waiter Christian was lovely and very knowledgeable. I also really liked the lighting -such an intimate, warm ambience! Looking forward to returning, such a treat.

Met two friends for one of their birthdays there today. We shared three plates of food. Really good! Very tasty and very generous. Will have to take the husbands for breakfast, lovely setting.

Took an early morning walk and ended up at Home Town for breakfast. Very good green juice and excellent granola with yogurt and fruit. Went back for lunch with my mum. The stuffed mushrooms and the roast vegetable salad were both very good. The carot cake was outstanding. Nice atmosphere - indoor seating as well as a large outdoor patio... More

Very friendly staff, especially your door 'host' - coffee delicious and a lovely outdoor spot to sit under the tree in the shade.

Tucked away in Rosebank, Home Town is a little oasis of calm and tasty treats in the middle of town. Lovely shady courtyard for tea and coffee and cake.
