A really unique place to enjoy a vegetarian lunch, I had the potato frittata with salad and it was delicious. Lots of choice. Nick and Ian are great hosts and they prepare everything fresh each day, including their jokes! The Institute and the Café are true gems that everyone should try…


We visited the V Café today for lunch. It is a haven of peace from the busy town centre. The food is delicious and the welcome was warm. The menu was really varied and we were spoilt for choice – what a joy!
