I really enjoyed the vegan food...they give quite large servings too, however, the cafe staff were not wearing hair nets!

Large portions of decent vegetarian and vegan grub, could do with a bit more taste but very filling.

Worth eating out here whilst you view the CATs centre...its nice to know that all veg and salad are produced on the site.

Amazing food. Probably one of the tastiest meals I have ever had. The pumpkin seed and lime cake was out of this world. Wow!

There was a good selection of meals available. All the food available was vegetarian which was a shock for a carnivore like myself.

Lovely clean café with a really good selection of delicious food. Its vegetarian food but as a non vegetarian...it was all delicious. Even my fussy eater son loved the soul and gluten free bread 😀

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.
