Recently visited with young children during the school Easter holidays. The children wanted cheese on toast and the adults just had coffee. The bread was very lightly toasted on one side and covered on the other side with an individual preformed cheese slice. Not what we were expecting for a charge of £2.90p per slice!!!

We go to the wetlands almost every weekend as it is so close to where we live but usually the cafe is so full we can't get a table. A couple of weeks ago we visited on a very wet Sunday so the cafe was not as busy as usual - we got a table straight away. My boyfriend and I shared the soup of the day (mushroom and truffle oil) and the mushrooms and cheese on toast - both were absolutely delicious! The soup came with two huge chunks of bread so both meals were very filling and good value. Our friend had the vegan butterbean stew and said it was the best vegan dish he's had for a while. We will definitely be returning to try some of the other things on the menu.

It was very busy when we visited on a lovely Sunday afternoon, and we were glad that we decided to grab something to eat before we started our walk around the Walthamstow Wetlands, because it was even busier when we returned from our walk a couple of hours later.

In spite of the numbers of people, the queue moved pretty quickly. My husband chose to have a bacon sandwich and tea, and I had the open toasted sandwich of sun-dried tomatoes, bacon and Emmental and a hot chocolate, we also had a slice of coffee and walnut cake between us.

We expected there to be a bit of a wait but it was too long between when we received our drinks to when we were given our food. In any case, the food was really nice. We were both impressed with the amount of bacon that was in his sandwich, and I found my dish to be really tasty.

Set in a stunning building but both the service and quality of food need serious improvement.

Our coffees sat on the side getting cold for about 10mins before they were brought over, a shame as it would have been a decent coffee if it hadn’t been lukewarm by the time it arrived.

There’s a limited lunch menu, but having seen ours and other plates served to those around our table, it’s poorly presented and,
‘Rustic’ at best. £5.90 for a thin smear of browning avocado on toast - it’s hard to get something so simple so wrong. Lentil soup was tasty but more of a watery tomato soup.

Hopefully it’s just teething troubles and will sort itself out but there’s room for a LOT of improvement - will wait a while before we go back.

As a stop on the Lea Valley walk, or a place to rest after exploring the Wetlands, this is a great destination. Coffee good, cakes and pastries brilliant if a little pricey, and a simple lunch also available.
Fully accessible to buggies and wheelchairs.
