    Amazing food to take away, healthy, homely and comforting. The Vietnamese tofu stew is amazing! Communal seating downstairs, canteen feel with a sense of community. Definitely worth a try!

    Never thought vegetarian/vegan food would be this tasty but it was yummy. The portions of quiche and salad were enormous (for me). Great place. Must try the desserts next time.

    Great spot for simply delicious vegetarian food on a budget. Love the ever-changing menu and their vegan/gluten-free scones. Salads and stews are amazing.

    Delicious, incredibly fresh and produce-heavy food. Definitely recommend this for vegetarians or meat eaters alike, it's both a healthy and satisfying lunch option. Cash only!

    Established in 1974, they have been feeding London’s vegetarians for 38 years. The menu changes every day and is very reasonably priced. They don't take credit cards. Read more

    I'm not a vegetarian but I tried this place and it's awesome. A wholesome, healthy alternative. The food is really spectacular and the menu changes daily so it never gets old!

    Cozy and lovely cafe for vegetarian menus. Soup with rice and salads are so tasty and healthy. But sadly quite a lot of menus have coriander...

    Lovely little place this. Simple, honest good food. Seating is a little tight but that just adds to the atmosphere if you ask me!

    Sometimes you need a veggie hit to counter the meat n potatoes fair in London. Quiche with salad is the go to.

    In the basement head to the bottom of the room, there's a small cave where you can sit on big cushions on the floor

    Comforting all-veggie underground affair. Quiche and salad plate makes me happy. Treat yourself to a "Scrunch" for dessert.
