Never visited this area before and wanted in with the family after a visit to the nearby Horniman museum. A curious "boho" styled restaurant/cafe offering an eclectic mix of brunch/lunch offerings. Wonderful cakes!. Not bad value for 4 adults + 1 infant. Great friendly staff...More

Had a very nice roast here today while the rest of the group all had some lovely brunch items. The place is quirkily decorated and has a nice range of dishes and drinks available. There’s also a gallery attached.

Don't go if you're vegan the food is horrible and really over priced -There are not many lunch options for vegans -I ended up with a salad that was mostly spinach leaves with a very nasty dressing

Hi I’m not sure about inside the cafe, but they do have an outside area at the front, so wouldn’t think it would be an issue.
