A new vegetarian cafe called Orchard has opened on Sicilian Avenue, London near Holborn Tube Station.
I have just got back from a lovely short break in London and I was very pleased to find out that there is a lovely new vegetarian cafe to try out. As many of you know I am a vegan, I have never had trouble getting vegan food in a vegetarian cafe or restaurant so I was hopeful to try something new from this little cafe. When we got there and asked what was on offer for vegans, the member of staff promptly told me that they are a vegetarian cafe and vegans have to call in advance if they want to eat. I have to admit I was very surprised. The staff were not friendly or helpful and frankly completely put me off ever going again.
I have looked at their menu and it does seem to rely on eggs, cheese and butter. It is vegetarian and not vegan, so if you are like me (vegan) then I would go somewhere else. But vegetarians I hope you like it, maybe you could comment on the quality of the food on this article to let others know what you think.
Orchard is a spin off of Vanilla Black a vegetarian restaurant near Covent Garden. Vanilla Black did do us a good meal last time I visited. See my review here.
