Comfortable? It’s a nice space even though there aren’t really any windows to speak of. Light opera music in the background picks up on the atmosphere of the old building. Nice exposed stone walls. Two picnic tables with benches — they look nice but I don’t like sharing tables. The other tables might have been comfortable but were too modern for the old room. A pleasant spot, when quiet, where you can really escape from the outside world.
Was the food good? Yes. Their own brown bread with fennel was excellent, though it overpowered the nice ingredients in the sandwich (I had been cautioned that the bread included fennel, though). Great choice of veggies for the sandwich, which were all nicely done.
Toilets: Clean and spacey.
My advice to the chef: Keep up the good work.
My advice to the manager: Perhaps rethink the furniture — it would be so much nicer if it were in keeping with the age of the building and the exposed stone. Also, it’s great that you offer so many different options for vegetarians instead of the dreaded goat’s cheese. How about some vegan cookies?
Overall: A good spot for vegetarians. I’ll definitely be back.
