Fodor's Review

Covent Garden's throwback 1970s-style subterranean vegetarian café has a cult vegan following, so be prepared to line up down the stairs onto Neal Street. You'll find cramped communal 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 such desserts as their famous oat-based strawberry and banana "Scrunch." There's take-away 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 Sundays.

good lunch time food

This is an cafe/restaurant which sells very tasty lunch time food. Well worth stopping by for lunch if you're in the Covent Garden area.

Eat Your Veggies. They're Good For You.

This vegetarian restaurant has been in London for years. I think the first time I ate there was 15 or 20 years ago. It's not fancy, but the food is very good and the atmosphere is friendly. It is a find for a vegetarian.
