Great food that doesn’t cost the earth. See what’s on the menu!

The Hornbeam Café is open 10am – 5pm Tuesday to Sunday (except Thursday from 11.30am).DSC_4216




We serve food that’s vegetarian/vegan using local, organic and fairly traded ingredients as much as we can. We can cater for people with allergies or special dietary requests. The menu is seasonal and changes depending on what vegetables are available to our climate and time of year.

We use fresh fruit and veg provided by Organiclea sourced from East Anglian farmers, the same produce which is also for sale at the Saturday market stall and in the box scheme on Wednesdays.

We also sell:

  • Today bakery organic sourdough bread on Wednesdays (
  • Organiclea homemade jams, teas and pickles.
  • Environmentally friendly household cleaning and washing liquid refills.





Hornbeam Nights – events running on some Thursday through to Sunday nights. Bringing some spice to the cafe and Hoe Street. Live music, DJs, Open decks, East London Radio collaborations, music lover’s quiz and pop-up supper clubs. Check out our Facebook page Hornbeam Nights Twitter @nightshornbeam for updated information.

We also offer catering for meetings, birthdays, wedding and events.

We can offer cafe space for groups and activities. Such as the tiny time music group on Thursday mornings 10-11am for babies, mums and toddlers. The weekly knitting group meet on Thursday afternoons from 2pm.

We are supported by volunteers and we are always keen to welcome new people – let us know if you’re interested!
