Mod Pop Cafe has disappeared! The shop is still there, but the cafe has gone. I bumped into Martin the Mod not long ago in the street and he didn't say owt about plans to close. Does anybody know anything about this? Has it re-located or completely closed?
it closed a couple of weeks ago, the owner of the shop wanted to expand his old furniture range so booted the cafe out apparently.
There's now a branch of Subway on Piccadilly Approach. Really handy for grabbing a butty while waiting for a train, or lining your stomach on the walk from a train to a pub. It is open till 11pm.
Do they do anything vegan other than the salad bap or whatever they call it?
The Earth Cafe continues to be pretty good, and now seems mainly to be run by women. The selection of cakes is not as reliable as it used to be, but standards haven't dropped.
. Last few times I've tried to go there the savoury food choice was really limited - e.g main dish was dahl and the soup was a variation of the dahl. There was also a "choice" of roulade and burgers which are very similar! IMHO the cake has gone downhill form totally amazing to very good.
