I always get vegan desserts from here so I don't have to feel so guilty having treats. The oreo crunch vegan desert is amazing. I have had it so many times and I will continue, makes it hard to believe its vegan. Love it!

Visited last month and thoroughly enjoyed the large range of options in the buffet style menu. All good is vegan which is also great when you have food sensitivities such as dairy. Friendly staff and yummy raw treats.
