“Craft Beer and Boutique Burgers of note!! In the growing list of Burger-Beer joints, this one is up there with the best and one of the few that have (thankfully) avoided being franchised. Their impressive selection of burgers come in all variants including vegetarian and vegan options. The Tofu or Quinoa-Lentil patties are so good, you'll wonder why burgers aren't always made this way...”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
“One of the three vegan restaurants within a 1km radius from the Airbnb. This place is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner up to 9 or 10pm and is situated just opposite the Village Green shopping center 5 mins from us by car. Conscious 108 was born out of a philosophy of kindness. A kindness that extends to humans, animals and the world around us. It is for this reason that they operate a fully plant-based restaurant. They’ve taken the best of what you love about food and fashioned it into comfortable, gratifying, love-conscious treats and meals. Their meals are generous and tasty, and while they started off doing dishes with more of an Indian flavor, they now offer a much wider menu which includes burgers (particularly good), pizzas, salads, delicious milkshakes (made with nut milk) and cakes to suit all tastes. Parking can be tricky so park at the shopping center opposite, and be relaxed as the service can vary. All dishes prepared with love.”
