Great welcome, menu has small selection but food quality makes up for this in bucket loads. Home made chutney is wonderful. All of the menu is homemade. Takes all payments types (Bonus)

We had been recommended Velocity by fellow travellers, and we were not disappointed! It took us a little while to find it, but the fresh food, great coffee and friendly staff more than made up for that. Quirky and upbeat. Highly recommended!

Delicious fresh vegetarian food with limited menu of goodies. Salads, dish of day, soup and cakes. Laid back atmosphere. Long shared tables. As everything is freshly prepared service is slow. Don’t come here hungry or on a short lunch break!

Stopped here for a quick lunch and didn't realise it's a vegan/veggie cafe but the food was delicious and fresh and the coffee was lovely.
