Healthy Salads take centre stage at this cosy and laid-back eatery. The Salads are delicious, so I’d recommend you try a few. Choose one to four Salads and add a main if you’re super hungry.

If you’re starving, you can choose a Main with Salads. I’m a big fan of filo pastry, so I’d recommend the Filo Pie. I’ve also tried the Frittata, which is excellent thanks to the Red Pepper, Spinach, Potato, Onion and Feta filling encased inside the set Egg.
