Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We love this place. Friendly staff, great coffee and excellent food! Only room for improvement would be how food is served - lots of single use materials. This may be related to COVID perhaps but would be great to serve the food on plates rather than wrapped up.

Super friendly service, excellent coffee, and the best playlists going on in the background. It’s my favourite place to meet my friends and then roam around Deptford and New Cross with coffee and snacks to last us the rest of the day. Hands down THE best hot dogs in all of London. I took this photo when I first found the place and I must have had a million Waiting Room hot dogs since then. There’s a limited menu at the moment but you can still get fabulous bagels and even vegan doughnuts! 🌱❤️

One of the top eating-experiences in all of London. Creative drinks, food with attitude, warm and inclusive staff delivering absolutely banging food, coffee and cocktails, no matter what time of day. The chefs never miss a beat, and the rotating menu of specials and extras is innovative and memorable. The seitan ch*cken is made with all the obsessive attention of its punk aesthetic by people who actually know what they’re doing. This is world -class food and drinks with amazing local history delivered by passionate humans who give a damn. An absolute must-visit, vegan or not.

Best cafe in the area, great food and coffee at affordable prices. Always meet my local tank fanatics to discuss the differences between Canadian and American models manufactured between the years 1919-1925 there. Also someone working there said they liked my t-shirt.

Really nice laid back coffee shop serving (vegan) food and drinks. Relaxed, laid back vibe with really friendly staff. Good to see minimal use of disposal plastics.

Absolutely love this place! Friendly atmosphere and delicious vegan food. What more can you ask for? Recommend the loaded hash browns, bloody Maria and almond croissant!

The Waiting Room is a very relaxed, friendly place with delicious vegan food and good quality drinks. We visited at the beginning of July and all had the chicken bagel with sides and drinks.

Great food and coffee but the wait puts me off at weekends! I waited 30 mins for a takeaway bagel. They could do with more hands.

On a rainy Saturday morning this was the place to be. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. This will be the place to head for just over the road from the station.

If you are looking for that little quite spot to escape the hustle and bustle of central Deptford all you need do is head for the the waiting room and venture to the far end of the cafe. You’ll need to go past the suspicious looking long haired Aussie in the Kitchen. Hopefully by now you will have made it to the wonderful little garden out the back. p.s. If you want to brush up on some great pub quiz music trivia. Invite the Aussie out for a cigarette and he’ll recount plethora of facts about one hit wonders.

As a fully signed-up member of the meat eating community I can't get enough of the vegetarian Spicy Maiden bagel and would pick it above any other meaty food option locally. I'm not picking it as a vegetarian food option for ethical reasons, I'm picking it because it's ridiculously tasty. The new location a couple of doors down from the old shop is bigger which means you can actually get a seat most of the time. Coffee, as always, is great.

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!
