A cool and relaxing space where responsible and ethical sourcing means great natural tasting food.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The letters stand for ‘vegetarian and vegan’, and this café at Kelvinbridge is committed to conscientious living and dining. Owner Saffy Reid promises that all produce is sourced from ethical suppliers, ensuring no additives, preservatives or colours – even the coffee roasters assert bean to cup tracing. A grey and white colour scheme gives the interior a fresh and open feel while an extra loft level offers ample table space. Homemade sandwiches, croissants and bakes put lunch centre stage while vegan yoghurt parfait and porridge with maple syrup make delicious breakfast offerings. Carrot cake loaf is served in a cardboard ‘tin’ and is the perfect moist gingery accompaniment to freshly ground coffee supplied by roasters who know their growers personally. A three-tiered afternoon tea for two is especially good value at £14.95.
