I was really excited about this place especially as I had a sneak peek at their menu online. It looks like they're offering simple tasty food for really reasonable prices but unfortunately we didn't actually get to try any of it!
We went there, we ordered, we were told it'd take a while and then eventually we were told there would be no more food. I'm going to put this bad experience down to first day teething problems but I'll just say that I wasn't overly impressed with the service...especially after the 1 1/2 hour walk to and from the cafe.
Hopefully one day if I'm at that end of town I'll be able to give them a better review, one with pictures of actual food!
The good thing that came out of this is that we decided that we were damn well going to eat out tonight and on our way to old favourite The George we spotted the awesomely named Wai Kika Moo Kau and remembered we'd never actually been there...so we went!
This place is all vegetarian and has loads of vegan options. They serve a good selection of filling comfort foods like sausage & mash and burgers to more healthy options like salads, soups and pitta pocket sandwiches.
I love a good smoothie so I had to get one of those to quench my thirst after our crazy long walk.
This was the crazily good and amazingly refreshing mango & passion fruit smoothie - yum. I love how light it is out at the moment, this was at about 9pm.
I was starving and for once I didn't go for the burger. In fact I managed to find an even more filling option, the all day breakfast. Sorry about the terrible photo, it'd gotten kinda dark by this point and I was too hungry to take more than 10 photos so this is the best I've got!
Just look at the awesomeness of that breakfast! For £6.75 you get sausages, loads of mushrooms, pesto topped tomatoes, baked beans, toast (with a side of vegan margarine) and chips - brilliant. It was a seriously great all day breakfast, everything was cooked perfectly and whilst it was a pretty simple traditional meal the little differences like the homemade bread and pesto topping on the tomatoes really made this one special.
I was super full after my ridiculous breakfast so I didn't order any but they also had a pretty impressive looking selection of vegan cakes. I'll just have to go back and review them another time.
I think we'd avoided this place because they perhaps used to have less vegan options or maybe they used to be more expensive? I can't remember but whatever they've done I hope they'll stick with it because it's working out really well...so well that I've decided this place might just be my new favourite Brighton restaurant. It has a really relaxed atmosphere and the staff were really friendly, the service was quick and they even warm the plates.
