New Mindful Menu @ Inkwell Arts Cafe

Updated: Nov 16, 2019

"Autumn & Winter wellbeing warmers"

Step off the street from Potternewton Lane - Chapel Allerton, and you enter the welcoming world of Inkwell Arts. A space perfectly crafted for the community is also home to the newly re-furbed Inkwell Arts Café - a quirky, sleek and wholly vegetarian bistro just waiting to be discovered.

We headed down for day 1 of the new Autumn/Winter menu in October to unearth the hidden gems of this wellbeing venue.

Did anyone say Tacos!? Oh yes! These delicious Tacos come with home made spelt tortillas - generously filled with split pea chilli and cheddar cheese (vegan cheese also available)
