Absolutely delicious food, lovely atmosphere, and very helpful staff. They were very understanding of food intolerances and allergies, and my gluten free roll was actually the nicest gluten free bread I've ever eaten.

Loved visiting CAT and were even more excited to eat in the resteraunt. We went for a coffee and cake in the morning and can honestly say the vegan lemon meringue cake was to die for! Came back for lunch and we had a vegetarian...More

Been here a few times now. Bit of a 'canteen' feel ablout the place but good food and decent prices.

Visited here for a student presentation, which went on until about 8pm. By then the cafe was closing, which may have been a blessing as the food didn't look appetising, so we went elsewhere.

I was really impressed by the standard of food in the lovely cafe. There was a large choice of vegetarian and vegan food. It was all very tasty, generously portioned and good value. If you're visiting CAT then you wil eat well here!

This restaurant is vegetarian but the food is excellent at a reasonable price. Among other things I had a flapjack which was delicious and was very large

The main meal was jacket spuds and beans, a choice of salads or tomato and coconut soup. It was not as good as I'd remembered.

Good to have it but I felt disappointed. There was not much choice to eat (and in fact just two options). The point about it was that you can go out of the building and eat in peace outside.

A great selection of drinks, teas in particular very reasonably priced, and the hummus was amazing. Good value overall.
