We called in for a breakfast. It looked really good and tasted even better. I'm not a vegetarian but thoroughly enjoyed it.

You don't have to be vegetarian/vegan to appreciate the food here - we're not. Whether it's soup, sandwiches, paninis, chickpea burgers, quiche or cake everything is tasty and made with a delicious variety of ingredients. The broccoli soup I had was velvety smooth and, after polishing off a tasty chickpea burger, my husband asked if I could look up the... More

Visited here as family group of one adult and two kids, we had the sweet potato, butternut squash and coconut soup, mushrooms on toast and a child's houmous and pitta and vegetable sticks. The kids loved the smoothies, choosing their own fruits. A busy little place, great choice for vegetarians and vegans. Staff always so friendly, would recommend and would... More

Having driven past this cafe for over a year on a commute finally found ourselves in a position to call in and so glad we did. The menu has something for everyone and further temptation is all around as every plate comes out from the kitchen. We choose a small soup with mini meze and a warm toasted pitta with... More

Had the bean burger twice now, absolutely amazing - the chef truly loves food and is clearly very experienced with vegetarian cooking! The soups are amazing, lots of vegan choices too. Yet to sample the breakfast menu but great coffees :)

Quiche from the specials board and Welsh rarebit were both great and clearly this place does a great job of producing good quality food - nothing "instant" about it and it is worth waiting for. Will come again

that if I thought that the vegetarian food was so good in this restaurant then why hadn’t I become a vegetarian? Frankly the quality and imagination of the fayre on offer at ‘The Veggie’ is on another level to virtually most places you might find vegetarian or vegan food. On the main drag through Ilkley this restaurant has received many... More
