SO GOOD - Edit

Gorgeous! Such a fab venue, with lovely staff, cool atmosphere and a room full of wall scrawls to browse while you munch.
The food was utterly delicious. Had the black bean and quinoa burger thing... yum. Came on sourdough with a massive fresh salad and gorgeous dressing. Brother had the no-fish and chips. Equally divine.
Big portions and fresh, flavoursome food. Not the cheapest but totally worth every penny.
Didn’t have the stomach room for dessert but the cakes looked to die for.
Would definitely recommend this place to everyone and can’t wait to eat here again.
Thanks for a lovely lunch!

Pros: Fresh and flavoursome food, Quirky venue, Lovely staff

Delicious Food - Edit

Well I've now been twice, and it's been great both times. The Tofish & Chips on my first go was great (seconded by my omnivorous brother), and then next time I had the not-meatball sandwich. Sweet baby lord on a cloud it was tasty, and the portions are very good too.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Very tasty food, Pretty affordable for London

lots of choice and nice staff - Edit

This place seemed super nice and the staff were very friendly. When I went during veganuary they were handing out free cake on the street and offering a promotion to encourage veganism.

I only had a coffee (wasn’t the best admittedly), but the cakes looked really good, as did the savoury food on the counter. I would go back to try the tofish and chips...

Pros: staff, location, choice

Cons: coffee not great

I probably won't be back... - Edit

Not the greatest vegan food. The full Breakfast came with burnt potatoes, the beans had a strong unnecessary oregano aftertaste, the scrambled tofu was tasteless, all it had was a bit of turmeric. The tofish and chips was better, but again the tofu was completely tasteless and deep fired in OLD rancid vegetable oil.
The ambience is nice with interesting questions on the wall that makes you think...

Pros: Location , Questions on the wall , Nice variety of choices

Cons: They don't have knowledge of making vegan food, Food was a bit plain

Freak shake is freekin’ good - Edit

The freak shake was amazing, paid £8, which is a bit too much and they ran out of soy whipped cream and didn’t say it, only after I asked thy said sorry.
The cafe has a very pleasant athmosphere and many events.

Pros: infamous freak shakes

Cons: but pricey

Yum and cozy - Edit

A very cozy cafe, do have one permanent vegan dish on the menu, which is avocado and chickpea sandwich, super tasty, and have other different vegan dishes and desserts daily depends on what they have in the kitchen. The vegan freaks hake is a must try too.

Good but pricey - Edit

I shared a freakshake with my friend (avo lime flavour) and it was delicious but at £8 ! I'm not sure if it's worth it. Good vibe from the café though.
