Fodor's Review

Covent Garden's throwback 1970s-style subterranean vegetarian café has a cult following, so be prepared to line up down the steep stairs onto Neal Street. You'll find cramped communal pine tables and a zingy daily changing menu of wholesome soups, salads, pulses, dhals, stews, quiches, stir-fries, bakes, and casseroles—from mushroom Stroganoff to Rajistani red lentil curry. Wheat-free, gluten-free, nut-free, GM–free, free range, Fair Trade, vegan, and organic options are all usually available. Leave room for desserts like their famous oat-based strawberry-and-banana "Scrunch." There's takeaway and it's BYO, but note it's cash only and only open from noon until 8:30 pm Monday through Saturday, and from noon until 5:30 pm on Sunday.
