The food and atmosphere remind me of the (few) vegetarian restaurants around UN the seventies. All is cooked from scratch, with a selection of hot dishes from midday and a range of salads. Absent are the meat substitute or... More

As a vegan it's wonderful to find somewhere that has a good variety of food choices on offer and Earth cafe certainly provides this. On top of that you can choose from a great variety of cakes with a selection of ice cream flavours. The cafe itself is cosy and does get busy at meal times but that in itself... More

We loved the vegetarian and vegan food there. Nice, fresh quality. Excellent choise of hot drinks with the milk you want (hemp, coco, soy, regular milk....). The world would be a better place with more restaurants like this!

Found Earth Cafe with the help of Google Maps, and so glad we did! Cafeteria style dining with very friendly and helpful staff. Choice was not huge, but everything is vegan and freshly made. Generous portions and extremely tasty. I had chilli with rice and coleslaw while my daughter had the mushroom pie, which was quite possibly the best mushroom... More

Absolutely love it here. I love the relaxed atmosphere and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is lovely, no overpowering salt or sugar, beautiful healthy vegan food. All veg and no mock meats either which is refreshing. I know you can nip down the road and get a full on mock burger loaded with grease and 'cheese'... More
