THE NUDGE

"An independent charity run vegetarian and vegan cafe..."

 

stylist magazine

"There's little not to love about this vegetarian and vegan not-for-profit cafe in Bethnal Green. The food is superb, covering everything from a Full English veggie breakfast with hash browns and scrambled tofu to fiery breakfast quesadillas and of course, pizza - with vegan or dairy cheese." 

the culture trip

"Part of the St Margaret’s community project, this snug burrow is a non-profit vegan and vegetarian café that tempts even the most hardline carnivores."

"I loved the look and feel of this cafe, it reminded me a lot of my home city, Wellington, New Zealand. There were loads of options here and more friendly, helpful service. The soy flat white were very good and we couldn’t resist ordering something sweet too."

evening standard

"This welcoming café in Bethnal Green is relaxed and a bit rough around the edges in a good way. The 'signature' - sourdough toast with tofu scramble, spinach and garlic mushrooms - is the one to order, but if it's sold out (as it regularly does) the 'lighter breakfast' does a similar job - swap spinach for tomatoes."

 

about time magazine

"These guys offer a great Full English and I had a fantastic Vegan Breakfast Quesadilla - yes vegan cheese has come a long way too. No problems for gluten-free vegans here, their Chai cupcake and brownie bites were some of the best cafe food I've had in a long time."

about time magazine

"The Gallery Cafe is something of an institution on the London vegan scene. Run by the charity St Margaret's House, which provides support to community organisations in Tower Hamlets, this is the place for your Saturday hangover fry-up, Sunday lunch or weekday takeout."

rest in pizza

"Their food is always so impressive, and they do breakfasts, cakes, sandwiches - basically everything you could ever want. They also have theme nights (they do Chip Shop every last Thursday and serve tofu fish and chips, which is obviously delicious, and Diner Night every Tuesday with vegan hotdogs, burgers and mac and cheese)"

"I had never been to The Gallery Café before, as a first-timer I’ve found it an unpretentious place that serves good grub. Expect a relaxed vibe, above average quality food at a great value."

"The Gallery Cafe is a unique place to eat and relax, situated near the Museum of Childhood and York Hall in Bethnal Green."

"Yummmmmm so much hummus."
