Editorial Review

This is the kind of independent cafe you'd expect a city to have -- with creaky wooden floors, hot drinks served in one-of-a-kind mugs and lots of vegetarian-friendly food. Most of the offerings are meatless; chick peas, veggie cutlet and bean mash are among the sandwich starters.

It would be tempting to spend a leisurely Sunday morning on the house's front porch. But because it's so small, signs around the cafe encourage patrons to share tables and not overstay their welcome. The cafe also offers takeout and "baggers" -- whole meals to go.
