A little tricky to find, but actually close to the high street, Archie Brown's was worth it. If you like freshly cooked, healthy food (we ordered quesadillas with mixed salads, and beetroot fritters), juices, coffees & cakes this is a good find. Friendly and down-to-earth place, upstairs from the health food store.

A superb shop and cafe upstairs. Always the same standard of food sourced locally and one of the best veggie places to eat ever. Great service and lovely people

I often fantasise about lunch here. Always great dishes with a sumptious and filling salads (not just a leaf and a tomato!). Way healthy, but sorts all the cravings, If you want to take me to lunch, this is where I would like to go.

The food here is stunning, a real hidden gem! We were meeting family and it hit the spot. The lunchtime ambience was good with most tables filled. Great service and no pressure to stop our family chat. Will go back in an instant!

The vegetarian and vegan food here is really well conceived, full of flavour and good healthy ingredients. The cafe is calm, light and airy. The staff are friendly and efficient. Food came quickly. The Mushroom and lentil lasagne was full of flavour and came with a wonderful salad.

My sister loves this place and i think it's got what certain people are looking for but not my cup of tea for vegan cakes as im not vegan. They cant cater for everyone and im not into all that kind of vegitarian food but fantastic for those that are as its a great shop.

One of my old favourites. If I want some decent, healthy and hearty food this is where I go for lunch. The restaurant is light and airy even when it is very busy- which is often at lunchtime. They cater for different dietary requirements and range from home-made soup, baked pots, falafels and gorgeous salads to cake and coffee. They... More
