If you're concerned about what goes into the food you consume and care about the wider world, Earth Cafe's Buddhist food philosophy will be right up your street. 100 per cent vegan, the menu is freshly prepared and cooked on site using produce that is locally sourced, fair trade and in season. Dhal, salads, fresh soups, vegetarian burgers and bakes are served daily. Surroundings are deliciously Zen with lashings of wood, free, iced water and a fine class of customer, many of whom are regulars at the yoga and meditation rooms upstairs. Good food, good health and good living at the core of the Northern Quarter.
