Limited opening hours

Posted on 10 / 30 / 2015

This cafe is on the first floor so is unusually spacious for a veggie cafe in London. There is a range of seating including sofas and it's a great place to just hang out and enjoy the healthy veggie food. However, it has very limited opening times - only Monday-Friday during term time and it closes in the early evening. It's a shame because I live in the area and don't work here so I can never visit! It's the only veggie cafe in New Cross, so a real oasis.

Pros: Atmosphere, Food
Cons: Opening hours

Sustainable Power Lunch!

Posted on 06 / 18 / 2015

When I visited Cafe Natura at lunch time, there were 2 main vegetarian hot dishes plus one vegan one and a vegan soup and the option of a baked potato with beans and salads. I had a Chickpea and Butternut Squash stew with rice and salad which was a good-sized portion, tasty but which could perhaps have been a little warmer.

Also on offer were freshly made sandwiches, toasties and all day breakfasts (I noticed a vegan one with scrambled tofu which I will go back to try).

Hot drinks-wise there was Fair trade coffee and tea (with the option of organic milk, almond or coconut milk) and a selection of herbal teas. There were fresh juices, lots of bottled soft drinks and a great selection of vegan cakes and desserts (I tried the Chocolate Cheesecake but found it a little dry).

The atmosphere is nice and relaxed with a large seating area with a variety of sofas, chairs and different sized tables as well as the most stylish disabled access ramp I have seen. The decor is also great and makes for a nice place to hang out in and have a chat over coffee or put the world to rights over a power lunch.

Having won Gold for the Green Impact Award for 3 consecutive years, this cafe, housed in Goldsmith University's Student Union, prides itself for sustainable consumption. Vegan and vegetarian catering is also offered.

The venue is easily accessible by public transport: New Cross Gate Station, Bus stop Y Marquis of Granby /Goldsmiths 136, 171, 177, 436

Get to Natura Cafe by going down Dixon Road under the purple bridge into the Student Union Building on the right, and then go left up the stairs (or in lift on the right).

Pros: good atmosphere, Vegan cakes, Pleasant service
Cons: Closed weekends, Could have more vegan options
