Worth a debate
Posted on 01 / 06 / 2008
After reading other reviews and also having been in this place a few times over the years my opinion does sway a little. Yes, it is a great ethical co-operatvive with very eco friendly policies and standards in their cafe. Sustainable wood, biodegradable cleaners, recycled and other amimal, human and enviromental friendly materials.These are great things to have and all establishments should be moving towards these high standards. However the food is very over priced and out of reach of the person on a low income, single parent or others on certain benefit packages that means they cannot afford this level of pricing.
At first i thought 2 coffees and 2 slices of cake for about £10.50 was ok but at the moment i am earning a good wage and will soon be a student again and this will be out of my league.
THe food selection is good for a cafe, very fresh, healthy and plenty of vegan options which is great for me. I had a bowl of soup recently which was lentil, cocconut and lime which was great.
It is a shame that this place is out of reach for the low income worker, parents and others who are not in a position to be able to afford a healthy diet. Maybe Infinity needs to redress this as i use their warehouse where the food is very cheap at bulk price and is the best way to afford wholefoods.
If anyone from Infinity reads these reviews please consider the working class population, the people on benefits and others who cannot earn London City wages.
Healthy, Vegan friendly, organic
very expensive, not community friendly
