Type of Restaurant: Farm to table restaurant and coffee bar
In general, the food promises much and delivers mediocrity. Portions of some dishes are very modest and prices are high for what you get. We went for the tofu scramble, which came with whole wheat toast and a slice of melon. It was OK. For example, we got a single slice of pre-sliced, dry toast on the side of our plate. Strictly speaking it does what it says on the tin, but no more. A bit disappointing.
The barista coffee bar does have a good range of teas, coffees (well made and flavorful), cakes and pastries. There is a vegan option in the form of a ‘vegan peanut butter cookie’ ($2.5).
All in all, this place is a real community hub up in an area with little competition. However it is over-priced, which is a shame as the food ethos is sound and it would be nice if it was a bit more accessible to all. Vegans are relatively well catered for overall, although the evening menu looks more restricted.
