Cute and yummy cafe

The venue is very nice, despite the traffic in the street, and the menu is quite exciting, at least to me, visiting London for the first time.

We got the vegan brunch plate and the vegan spinach risotto lasagna. The former was good, although the scrambled tofu could have been more juicy. The later was tasty - the ricotta was very convincing - but a little too dry. I told the staff that adding some tomato or mushroom based sauce would be worth a try.


Pros: Lots of vegan options , Cute, Friendly staff

Cons: Traffic in the street in front

The Best!

The food is great, the setting is cozy, and the prices are reasonable, but it is the staff that gets a standing ovation. I wanted to create a special birthday for my wife, and everyone played a part in making that happen. From baking my wifeโ€™s favorite cake to making everything a surprise, I could not have asked for more. On the day we arrived the plan had to change a bit, but all three staff members present adapted beautifully and made the occasion special for both of us.

Best place for vegans in Richmond.

Itโ€™s safe to say, Iโ€™m late to the party on this place! I must have passed it by so many times, but I only recently discovered that everything, except the option to have cow's milk, is vegan. Great find.
Best place in Richmond for vegans, by far!
Really great for Brunch, lunch or afternoon tea and cake. Very large sweet selection, even incredible vegan croissants. Tastier than some Iโ€™ve tried in France!
Also, good gluten free choices.
My friend who was with me on the second occasion I ate here is celiac and there was plenty of choice on the menu for her.
I really loved the Smashed avocado & rocket on sour dough, which is nicely seasoned with coriander, cherry tomatoes and lime.ย 
Iโ€™m genuinely so happy to have found this cafe!ย 

Pros: 99.9% vegan menu!, Wide variety of choices , Dog friendly

Cons: Has the option of cows milk!

Lots of lovely vegan treats!

I was pleasantly surprised by all of the lovely vegan treats. I thoroughly enjoyed the salted caramel baked doughnut! The croissant was a little dry, but tasty nonetheless.

Nice cafe soggy breakfast

This is a sweet little cafe with friendly staff and a decent menu. But itโ€™s not cheap and my breakfast was absolutely disgusting! Everything was microwaved, so floppy and soggy, and the scrambled tofu was watery and repulsive. My mumโ€™s muffin looked a bit better, but really could be doing better.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Nice place and obviously popular

Cons: Soggy unpleasant breakfast, Expensive!

Cute restaurant with delicious food

Super lovely staff and restaurant. Vegan brunch plate was amazing, as well as the English breakfast sandwich! Vegan hollandaise sauce was to die for. Juices were fresh and delicious
Had the carrot cake to finish off and that was great!
Didn't look at the whole menu in detail but I think they're full vegan now! Would double check to make sure.

Pros: Breakfast menu is all vegan, Good choice of non alc drinks, Hollandaise sauce was excellent

Wonderful cafe with especially wonderful service!

My Mum and i recently visited Retreat Kitchen for lunch while on a day out to Richmond, and couldn't say enough good things about it. To avoid this turning into a novel by my trying(!) i'll try to prioritise standout points:

The staff were just so so nice and completely made the place! The owner seems to do pretty much all of the cooking herself - and the food is fantastic - so huge compliments (and major thanks!) to her for an amazing array of cakes - and really interesting and imaginative ones! - an outstandingly good mexican mole and the best vegan quiche i've tried to date (and i've got a fair few under my belt - the lack of room there now is testament!) I wish i could have bought a whole one (or ten!) to take home! The food - and the staff especially
- seem to really reflect the ethos of the place, and make it somewhere it's really easy to feel happy being. Overall it's just a real gem, and it feels like a huge amount of time, energy, thought and care has been put (very successfully!) into its becoming the place that it is. We'd for sure go back without hesitation (and i hope we get the chance very soon!) and i wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone and everyone as a place to go for something especially lovely and vegan to eat in the Richmond vicinity! Much appreciation to the owner and the two super lovely girls she had working with her for the great job they're doing :)
