Get here early or be prepared for a long wait on the stairs. Many delicious, innovative vegan options and a buzzy atmosphere. (Jo)

I always get the vegan quesadilla- it’s not on the menu, ask for it anyway. This is one of my favourite dishes of all time. A full rainbow of roasted vegies, 5 different types of sauce, fresh salad, black beans, crispy tortilla. This is a massive meal, you feel a real sense of accomplishment when you finish it, and not bloated because the ingredients are so fresh and healthy.. They also have many tempting appetiser options, don’t go near those if you want to finish your quesadilla- you’ll have no chance. Eating here can get expensive (especially if you have a couple of jugs of sangria) but so worth it. (Jo)

All vegetarian. Anything ‘tofu asada’ is awesome (especially the burrito), their beans can get a bit monotonous though. The Nachos are great and they do a majestic vegan breakfast too. Great value and a good balance between convenience, nutrition and deliciousness. They have just moved into a new, more spacious location, but are still very busy. If you are getting take away, call ahead. (Jo)
