Food amazing, service excellent, staff friendly and efficient. The only downside was the cafe was a little cold even though we were seated near to a gas fire. Such a gem, saddened to read that it is having to close _ it will be a great loss to the community

Love this cafe, a true gem and fantastic for veggies and meat eaters alike. Not many places around that are solely veggie so this is a little gem. As a vegetarian myself I love the fact that I can have anything on the menu and not be worried that there may be something horrible lurking in my food which has... More

A great little cafe with amazing food and a really welcoming atmosphere. Always a brilliant and interesting salad to accompany your meal, and I love the option for half salad half chips. You will try their amazing quiches if you know what's good for you. If you fancy a little kick the burrito is for you. Great value for money... More

The quality of the food at this veggie café is consistent and I can confirm this as we have eaten here for a number of years. Very pleasant staff who aim to please. It's about 18 months since I posted my last review for here.. so I thought New Year new review!

Some people say quiche I say flan and boy what a flan. I'm a butcher's son by birth, so for me to convert it would be a challenge. South Square have a small but well turned out menu of which I've tried all and never been disappointed. Another Thornton gem

Southsquare vegetarian cafe is lunch times and some Friday evenings (you need to book Friday) and the food is always good to great. They can cater for most dietary requirements. No need to say much more other than eat here if you like good food.

This is an absolutely amazing place tucked away in a side street of Thornton Village a couple of miles out of Bradford. It's vegetarian and has the best flans (quiche like) that I have ever tasted. The salads or the half and half combo is fantastic as is the apple cinnamon hot drink. I eat here whenever I can find... More

Open during the day, you can get a filling tasty veg meal for £7 with starters and desserts as well if wanted. Quirky place and an interesting experience to eat here.

Me and my mum are regular visitors at the vegetarian cafe. The staff are always polite friendly and helpful. Always greeted with a hello and a smile. The food is outstanding. Who knew a salad could be so tasty and mouth watering. So many flavours. No boring salad in site. There is always a specials boards plus a regular menu.... More
