Helen and her team produce fantastic, flavoursome and imaginative meals. She caters not only for vegetarians and vegans but also fully understands the needs of people with food allergies and generously provides delicious gluten free and other alternatives. Soups, salads, pizza, lasagna, korma, frittata, a...range of Helen's homemade breads, the list is endless. And as for the desserts - fresh homemade banoffee, chocolate brownies, fruit crumbles, carrot cake - many of them sugar and gluten free delights that make your beg for more (even though the portions are huge!). The downside? She's only open on Saturdays and Sundays 😠 Take the short spin to Thomastown and check it out for yourself. I guarantee that you'll end up making Helen's a regular part of your weekend routine.More

Fresh and wholesome food which will illustrate how tasty and satisfying vegetarian food is and how it's possible to enjoy food without meat. Open Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtime only.

Helen and Peter Costelloe brought this place to life! Excellent food, made from fresh organic produce. Charming and cosy spot, with a garden to wander around after your meal, what more do ones want? Went there for a Sunday brunch with my family, and also...had a pleasure to attend my friends bday party, twas a private event and great experience. Will definitely be back again.More

Just simple fare of soups, sandwiches, and salads (and one hot dish) - oh, and lots of sweets. Well prepared, fresh, and a gorgeous setting.
