Lots of delicious vegan food at really great value, especially for London. We had breakfast bagels and a sweet bagel to share and both were great, and the coffee was seriously good too. Looking forward to trying the actual breakfast menu!

Handy for a hipster tattoo next door. Great coffee, tiny but lovely. If you get a seat here you’ll be super-happy. Great place to meet in Deptford, super-nice staff. V near the station.

Rude workers, i have asked a simply question after forgetting my stuff at the shop and the patience to even speak to me or check for my item seemed to much of a big task for them even doe it is a small store.

Hey there and thanks for your review. Just a note for everyone reading though... everything on our menu that is stated as a 'vegan option available' has replacements for all ingredients; mayo, cheese, 'meats,' sauces etc. There are also only 2 things on the menu...More

This place feels homey; very nice staff, great music, fabulous decoration, and fantastic food & coffee! It's quiet a mythic place in Deptford, which is great regarding the all brand new tendency going on in the area. Waiting Room Cafe will definitely make you feel...More

Really nice place for parties! Enjoyed it a lot although it was a bit stuffy at some point! Use of fan or air con would be nice. Apart from that nice staff and good prices!

Great vegan/vegetarian cafe. Small, but good vibe. A vegan delight, good coffee, teas. You can sit outside. Book swap, clean, nice staff, nothing too much trouble. Attracts an eclectic crowd of nice folk, locals and professionals. I love this place.
