What on earth is an arepa???


Arepas are a common street food in Venezuela and Colombia. Made from maize they are a gluten-free, hot ‘bap’

type thing made for stuffing full of yummy ingredients and eating hot, with your hands, like a sandwich. We think you’re going to love them…




What do we mean by
‘vegan dish, fish dish, meat dish’?


We will cook up three big pans of something delicious that can be matched with the carb of your choice, using the ingredients that are available seasonally and responding to customer feedback. For example, we might have red lentil dahl, creamy salmon sauce and lamb meatballs in tomato sauce. All of these dishes will contain a lot of veg no matter what, but you probably won’t notice until you start to feel better!

Daily Specials


Our Daily specials will provide vegan options and meat options, with plenty of variety and flavour

Everything will be available to take away or to eat in.

Last orders will be at 7:30pm and the café will close at 8pm
