Respond to Review of CLOSED: POGO Cafe
by manicpianic

Review: I visited this totally vegan mostly organic cafe with my husband yesterday lunchtime. We were so glad that we went. The food is so tasty, lots of it and so cheap. I had the 'Punk' burger which came with thick potato wedges, a leafy green and tofu salad and a carrot, apple and lemon salad. Hubbie had the mixed bean lasagne which came with a mixed salad. For dessert we had the very naughty knickerbocker glories which contained 4 different soya icecreams/sorbets - kids would absolutely love this (I did!). There is plenty of choice on the menu (including the extensive drinks list) which is fantastic bearing in mind how little choice vegans usually get. The vibe of the place is great, very relaxed and laid back with plenty of tables. There are also sofas to chill out on if you want to browse through one of the 2nd hand books left for a book exchange or you could check your emails and surf the internet on one of the 2 computers. All the staff are unpaid volunteers who are trying to do their bit to support veganism and help promote a cruelty-free lifestyle. They were very friendly and helpful. Don't be put off by the cafe's location (Hackney) - in fact there's a lovely square and park just round the corner, and it's not far from the tube station. You won't want to miss this place. It is a real find and I would recommend it highly. You can visit their website which contains their menu among other things at
