This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Skillfully combining healthy with tasty, it is unsurprising that this juice bar is frequently packed out. With around 40 people sat in between the main room and a snug at the back, as well as a steady stream waiting for takeaway, service remains friendly and swift on all but the busiest days. Fortunately the pretty interior, with bold prints and gentle pastel colours, means any waiting you might have to do isn't too stressful. Soups, wraps and salads are all fairly healthy, the chicken and stilton soup being about as decadent as things get. More importantly they taste good, with classic combinations, like pesto and sundried tomato, and vibrant flavours. Juices – both hot and cold, smoothies and frozen yoghurt based milkshakes feel deliciously virtuous even when being drunk to undo the damage from the night before. There are gluten- and dairy-free options among the cakes, and well-trained baristas serving Artisan Roast coffee keep this café’s focus on quality going right to the end.
