Small ramshackle place. Impressed when I ordered a salad and could choose exactly what went into it. My salad turned up and looked as good as it tasted. My companion's cake was delicious. It may be a bit trendy but was still alternative.

I just went there and was shocked by the customer service. The food was bad, when it finally came, although the teas were really good if small. But took ages and the whole experience was horrible because... The worst bit was one staff member was shouting rudely at another. I had to wait while she shouted as the staff. It... More

Looks very small at first - but if you venture in they have lots of seating at the back. Lots of lovely vegan options - sandwiches are lovely, and so are the cakes! nice to take away and eat in london fields on a nice day.

My brother and I came here for a drink and cake as all the cakes here are vegan. The cafe was very quiet at the time and so we had our pick of tables to sit and enjoy our refreshments. Well, the cakes were pretty yummy, but I have to say that the attitude of the staff was sadly lacking.... More

I regularly visit this cafe and I love it every time! So many delicious vegan and gluten free cakes (the polenta cake is just the most delicious ever!!). Great variety of teas, that you can browse and explore as they are all exposed on shelves in the narrow corridor by the counter. It is a very tiny place, therefore if... More

Located in the busy vibrate Broadway Market, and easy to reach via public transport links. The restaurant is nothing that exciting to look at when you’re inside. Popped in for a take away lunch and had this lush affordable avocado salad. They stock a vast amount of teas, which I’ll try on my next visit. The staff were not that... More

Delicious sandwiches and cakes. Salads too. I'm a regular and they always get my coffee exactly right. Very friendly service and great value too. Unlike other pretentious cafés this place is always warm and friendly.

This friendly little cafe is right on Broadway Market. During the summer I love seating on their table outside and just watch people passing by while having one of their delicious slice of cakes.. During winter, I prefer to stay cosy inside and have a tchai tea latte. The place is very small but worth the wait! They also sell... More
