Soho's veteran veggie now has a trendy little Camden sister set inside a glass building.
Harden's survey result
“My partner’s a die-hard meat eater, but still thinks this place is the bee’s knees!” – this extremely popular vegetarian chain has built on three decades of popularity for the “always-super-busy” (no bookings) Soho original, with branches in Camden Town, Dalston and King’s Cross all opened in the last few years. All outlets get a good rep in the survey, with their “great choice” of “very tasty, veggie, comfort food”.
“Good value vegetarian food” offering “excellent quality and choices” (including gluten-free and vegan) has driven the expansion of this 30-year-old veggie outfit from Soho into Camden, Dalston and King’s Cross. The Soho original is “cramped but likeable”, while the newer outposts are more “light and airy”.
That “it’s always over-crowded, with never-a-free table” speaks volumes for this long-enduring veggie café in Soho, whose “simple and delicious recipes” have been packing ’em in for decades. All of a sudden they’ve decided to ‘go for it’ expansion-wise though: there is also one near King’s Cross now, as well as Camden Town (“unlike the original, you can book, thus avoiding the horrendous waits!”) and a Dalston branch opened in summer 2017.
