Much-loved Harrogate restaurant Bica may be no more but its replacement in the same location is good news for vegetarians and vegans in Harrogate.

European-influenced Bica Cafe & Bistro built up an early following at 108 Mayfield Grove when it first began as a Portuguese-style restaurant.

Now that it's sadly no more, a new exciting eaterie has taken over.

Option Ve is a vegetarian cafe and deli with an emphasis on health and wellbeing.
