Staff are friendly and accommodating, the food is good and the convent grounds are beautiful! Abbotsford Lentil is a great place to have a slow and lazy lunch on the weekend - if it's sunny make sure to sit out on the grass with your plate and enjoy the beautiful grounds.

I've tried the buffet a handful of times. The food is tasty and hearty and there are usually plenty of vegan options. Honestly, it's not going to blow your socks off but it's good enough and filling and you'll be supporting an organisation that encourages interaction, cultural exchange and community growth...what a wonderful thing.

Lentil As Anything does great things within the community and they deserve all the support they can get.
