Food For Thought was a cheap and cheerful vegetarian cafe in Covent Garden. After several decades' service, it closed down for good in June 2015.

Cheap and cheerful vegetarian cafe in Covent Garden that has been going for decades.

The Condiment Queen tells us that it makes a great lunch stop if you can handle the queues, and if you don't mind the basement it also does dinner. She adds: "There are usually at least two vegan choices daily. Portions are large and water is provided in jugs from which to help yourself. It is good, honest, home-style vegetarian and vegan food that is reasonably priced."

Adam visited with a friend for lunch on a Sunday in November 2014 — it was quite closely packed downstairs but there didn't seem to be lots of waiting for seats. Food sampled was a Japanese stew (£5.50) which was served in a bowl on rice, and was enjoyable, generous on the shiitake mushrooms and tofu, and a stir-fried vegetable dish (£5) that was also good; both dishes were vegan and there was also a lasagne and quiche that were vegetarian but not vegan. The salads and desserts looked good but we didn't get to try them. Place was a little more crowded than we'd've liked and reasonably spartan in decor, but I'd happily come back. Menu is on website.
