    The menu is always changing, I had the tofu sandwich - which was good. The sweet potato fries were "meh" and the service is always friendly but sooooo slooooow.

    Great if your group is mixed with gluten free/veggie/vegan as there will be something safe and tasty for everyone even if they have no dietary restrictions.

    They've somehow managed to make the most unsexy combination of words ("vegan Caesar salad") something that I crave almost every day. You can also get it in a wrap (I know, boring) and it's DELICIOUS!

    Some of the people who work here are a little 'xenophobic'. No joke.

    Always use the bathroom closest to the kitchen. It's usually 90% drier than the other one...

    everything's good, gouda sandwhiches, curry, then you leave a missed connection for the bar staff or wait staff or kitchen staff. I haven't actually done that, but everyone else seems to...
