56 Stokenewington Road, Dalston (at Arcola Street), North London, England, N167XB

Established 2012, a one-woman operating cafe offering lots of cakes and cookies plus tea and savory food. Hippy vibe with re-used leather sofas, and sells second hand leather gloves. The decor is very individual, you could be forgiven for thinking this basement is an extension of the owners bedroom. Dolls, books, talismans, and weird nick-nacks abound. Open dates vary, must call ahead. Closed May 2014.

queer and weird... but great! - Edit

I love the place. Its different and doesnt look like a restaurant but the food is gorgeous. I had a full meal with many little samples, like and indian balti, and my girlfriend had the gluten free option. Delicious and very good value for money. there are recycled leather sofas and the deco is unashamedly weird but the atmosphere is welcoming and easy going, the girl who served us was very friendly too. Recommended without doubts.

Pros: value for money, great food, unique

Cons: goin down the stairs if you have vertigo

Great cakes and teas but scary sofas - Edit

I had a very generous pot of herb tea and a good choc brownie. Some day soon I,ll go back and try the savoury stuff. But most of my vegan friends won,t due to the prevalence of leather sofa,s and second hand leather gloves on sale. I found these a strange choice of things to furnish a vegan space with but it doesn,t worry me unduly and I can see the owners (friendly and sincere) argument for making use of things already in existence! Another thing to note is that this place is very inaccesible for those unable to negotiate narrow steep stairs. What really amazed me, however, was that this Vegan cafe was able to open up in Hackney - right under my nose so to speak - without my hearing about it!! So I,ve posted it up on Happy Cow and I hope others will go and try out this new interesting and slightly eccentric vegan cafe.

jon active 30 May 2013 - As promised back I went for supper (well savoury food)and things got even better! We accepted the suggested mix platter of all the food on offer, which was about 6 dishes plus salads. This came with bread and only cost £4.50 with a bottle of Evian for an extra 50p! The spinach quiche was succulent, the stuffed aubergine tasty, the pizza wholesome (not cheesy) and all in all we were full after finishing the pears with ground nuts and orange fruit salad. There's always room for cake though so I shared a lovely chocolate pear tart and very good (but not creamy) Black Forest Gateau with my companion. She found the video projections of Native American masochistic dances a bit off putting and to be honest the "tables" could do with being higher off the ground! But this was again a pleasant experience, good service, inexpensive, great food and quiet! Go check it out!
