Vegetarian cafe in Hebden Bridge not just for us hippies
Tucked into a side street just off Burnley Road, the main road through Hebden Bridge, the beautiful Old Oxford House, with its decorative stonework and stained glass windows, houses the appropriately named Greens Vegetarian Cafe.
With a tiny open kitchen and intimate seating for 30 people, Greens offers an impressive selection of speciality teas, coffees and freshly squeezed juices - the "Detox" (apple, cucumber, celery and lime) was perfectly refreshing.
The menu is mainly sandwiches and salads, with a daily specials board for hot food. We had the cheddar and chutney sandwich, and the falafel and houmous pitta from the main menu, both served with a terrific side salad with grated beetroot in a home-made dressing. Many items offer a vegan option. There were four cake options, one of which was vegan.
Chocolate and toffee drizzle cake (vegan), bakewell tart, and a pot of rooibos tea with soya milk
Even though the cafe was very busy and we loitered for over two hours, we were not rushed to finish. The waiting staff was friendly and although there was a bit of an understandable wait for food (as every table was occupied), every item was presented beautifully and we were treated like valued customers.
Greens is the perfect place for lunch or afternoon tea (or both, like we did!), and they are also open on Friday and Saturday evenings when booking is advisable and you can bring your own wine.
