Dropped in for something light to eat, wonderful food, friendly staff, cosy little restaurant. Enjoyed the soup, we weren't going to eat anything sweet but the desserts were just too tempting and they were fabulous.

Came for lunch while shopping in Shrewsbury - we’re not vegetarians, but liked the quiches ( just wish they weren’t microwaved !) Friendly service and good value !

It is always a joy to eat here as a vegetarian. The choices are wonderful and the salads always make me think I should be more imaginative at home! Combine this with good coffee and really friendly, efficient staff, and it guarantees an excellent experience.

Great vegetarian food for as long as anyone can remember. Quiches are amazing - although probably not that healthy given the cheese, pastry and cream content. Go early, as popular dishes run out during the lunch rush on busy days.
