We're not surprised this vegetarian cafe has a loyal following. Its interior is comfortable and stylish, with a glassed courtyard and bright colour scheme, and its food is 100% homemade, fresh and varied. Dishes are either vegetarian or vegan and are available in small and large sizes. There's a small cover charge for the home-baked bread and herb butter.
