With a nod to the med and fragrant tastes of North Africa IMA delight customers with a tight menu of vegetarian plates. Bowls of sumptuous salads served with fresh pittas and dips keep the canal crowd satisfied at lunch, many returning later in the day for the very good coffee and dessert treats. Bear this bright, friendly cafe in mind for breakfast and brunch stops too where you can enjoy virtuous granolas and eggs or the rather more indulgent pancakes before heading out for neighbourhood activities. Alternatively you can order to go and perch waterside savouring mouthfuls of goodness and flavour under the sun.
