Keeping you healthy and happy all year round

We serve food that’s vegan using local, organic and fairly traded ingredients as much as we can. In fact we are the only fully vegan cafe in Walthamstow!

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.  Check out our Instagram for regular updates.

We use fresh fruit and veg provided by local growing cooperative Organiclea based in Chingford and the Hornbeam offices and supplemented by extra veg sourced from other local organic farmers.  We also sell:

  • Organiclea homemade jams, teas and pickles.
  • Environmentally friendly household cleaning refills.
  • Catering for meetings, birthdays, wedding and events.
One of our many specialities is vegan cake!
