I dine at The Lotus-Heart frequently and really love the food, the atmosphere and the service. The restaurant in Cathedral Square has a larger menu plus a huge range of drinks including superfood smoothies that are energising and delicious. I have been vegetarian for many years and it is my favourite place to eat - highly recommended. There are plenty of options also for vegans and raw foodists. The cafe at 595 Colombo Street is more informal, yet quite charming. The coffee at the cafe is great.

Look for the clock tower, in the Old Post Office building in Cathedral Square - the entrance is beneath the clock tower. The restaurant is up one flight of stairs, unfortunately no wheelchair access as it is a historical building, but you can phone the restaurant for assistance with prams, heavy bags etc and someone comes to help.
