Amazing cafe - Edit

This has become one of my favourite vegan spots in town. The food is just so great, as is the coffee. They are pretty bready and not very gf friendly, but when I went with a gf friend they were able to make a couple of the bowls gf.

I sampled most of their fish week menu, and the chickpea tuna and crab cake were especially great. The almond croissants are out of this world and the brownie is so gooey and delicious. I think the coffee is also of an extremely high quallity and they have a large selection of milks.

The space itself is small but sweet, and you don't usually have to wait long for a table.

Just wish they were open a bit later...

Pros: Food and coffee, Deserts

Cons: Maybe £1 too expensive on the sandwiches, Not very gf friendly, Opening times

Small but nice - Edit

The cafe is small but very light and airy - there seems to be relatively quick turnover so worth waiting for a few minutes for a table. The cafe does a nice selection of sandwiches and cakes, but if you're gluten-free like me, the selection isn't so good (ie. there aren't any obvious options). However if you ask the chef now offers to turn a couple of the sandwiches into salad bowls which is great. We had a carrot 'smoked salmon' salad bowl and a chickpea 'tuna' salad bowl. The carrot salmon one was OK, but the chickpea tuna one was really, really tasty. My friend (non-gf) also says the croissants there are brilliant. Nice selection of hot drinks - I had the golden mylk on this occasion and my friend says the coffee is great. Would definitely come back for that chickpea tuna, but a few more gf options would really be appreciated for those of us who choose to be vegan but didn't choose to be gf.

Pros: Nice bright cafe, Tasty food, Good hot drinks

Cons: Very little gf

one of my favorite vegan cafes in London - Edit

Living in the area and having fields beneath close by is just the best thing ever. Think vegan croissants and pain au chocolat. Also the team is always coming up with a set of new lunch menu items. Their coffee is always consistently good. Owner Gavin is passionate about the vegan movement and animal welfare.

Pros: good roasted coffee anf oat flat whites

Cons: small seating area, toilets are accessed from the pub next door or in

Terrible staff - Edit

Was really looking forward to visiting here, but have been left very disappointed. The drinks and cake were decent, but the brunette girl who served us was incredibly condescending, rude and miserable. Won’t be returning.

Sweet heart felt spot - Edit

Gorgeous energy of staff, amazing food (4 stars because not many GF) options. All fresh food made every day so better to go earlier for full range of menu. Use rude health for all milks and offer wide range. All drinks well worth price. Hot drinks very very well made. Sweet spot to sit in. Heaters inside.

Some of the Best Vegan Food I've Had - Edit

This cafe absolutely shocked me. The location is really cool, sitting right under a bridge and next to a rail station.

The pumpkin chia seed pudding was shockingly good.

The burger had applesauce on it and blew my taste buds to pieces in the best way.

My buddy and I weren't feeling so hot, so we got a lemon ginger tea to fight off a cold as well as a golden tea with almond milk that was phenomenal.

I was staying in Swiss Cottage while in London, so it was only a short walk. Definitely far from downtown, but if you're in the area, do yourself a favor and check out The Fields Beneath. I was really impressed with this little place.

Prices for sandwiches range from 4-7gbp

Pros: Delicious Food, Well-priced, Good vibes

Cons: Small, so pretty packed when busy

good food & ambience - Edit

I had a lentil burger, which was scrumptious but it fell apart a lot, followed by a soya cappuccino, which was okay. It's good if you wanna get a quick, healthy bite, but otherwise not a lot of places to sit. Recommend the food though.

Decent vegan cafe - Edit

Nice busy little place. Had porridge, croissant and a cappuccino for £8. The porridge was very good, with fresh nectarine and pumpkin seeds on. Good strong coffee too. The croissant was a bit salty but not terrible. Overall was pretty impressed, would come back.

Pros: Lots of options and friendly staff

Cons: A little pricey and no toilets

slightly Disappointed - Edit

I went here with my son after his Photoshoot & to be honest I was disappointed with the female working here, she wasn't friendly which to me took me back slightly as the website showed the team to be friendly & welcoming & welcoming I sadly didn't feel. The Australian guy was very friendly though, the food looked good I just had a coffee though, I felt it was very expensive.

Pros: cute little place

Cons: ideal location right next to the train station

don't recommend - Edit

Had the mushroom croissant and almost threw up after taking multiple bites - the mushroom was so salty and the croissant absorbed all the saltiness. Boyfriend was okay with his salad.
Stuff seemed rude.

little gem - Edit

We went there after swimming in the ponds on Hampstead heath to celebrate my birthday, and are very glad we did.

We sat outside (under the bridge) and had iced coffee and some delicious filling sandwiches (smoked tofu "Keith", and a bean sloppy Joe burrito).

The staff were lovely, the atmosphere relaxed, and the food excellent. Highly recommended.

Terrific !! - Edit

Cute little cafe local style in Kentish Town offering high quality sandwiches, pastries and cakes. The staff are super friendly they have few types of milks to chose from. The coffee itself is very good.

It is a cafe that recently became 100% vegan and takes also part of vegan activism. Not only because it is a brilliant cafe, but also because of their part in the vegan movement is why they deserve a visit.

Visit their Facebook page- they are very active there :)

I have no doubt you will enjoy your coffee and breakfast there. Don't skip the sandwiches!

Great vegan cafe - Edit

It is really good that The Fields Beneath is now vegan. I had a delicious toasted sandwich there today and took away a slice of cake which I ate in the nearby park. When the cafe is crowded and the weather is good the park is a nice place to eat a takeaway.

Pros: Good food, all vegan, Nice atmosphere, Friendly and helpful staff

Cosy & Comfortable - Edit

It was a very enjoyable experience being at this coffee shop as the people working there were very genuine in how they spoke and acted. You could tell they enjoyed themselves at work and still managed whilst busy to get down and do the work in a timely manner. Perfect place for a quick coffee on the go!

Pros: Very relaxed environment , Very quick service, Variety of options

Going vegan - Edit

So good to hear of omni places turning vegan. This little coffee shop had great coffee with a range of plant milks - the oat milk makes a good latte. Cakes on offer when I visited includes ginger and marmalade (tasty), lemon and thyme, hemp balls (my friend thought these were so good I didn't get a try), chocolate brownies, crossiant... so lots of choice!

Limited indoor tables (it was a busy weekend lunchtime when I visited) but the sun was streaming in through a large window so it was a lovely light place to sit. Tables outside under the railway arches too. I enjoyed a delicious salad and they also had burgers, wraps, soup.

Service was friendly and efficient despite how busy they were.

Pros: Good coffee, Delicious salad, Friendly service

Vegan coffee shop heaven! - Edit

My dog and I make a 90 minute round trip to here every Sunday just to load up on tasty carbs! Tiny little space under Kentish Town West station but manages to churn out filled, flavoured and plain croissants (I have missed these so much since becoming vegan!); brownies and cakes (at least 5 to chose from on any given morning); plenty of soup and sandwiches too. Oat, soy and almond milk on offer for the various coffees and hot drinks. I've yet to take a photo as I'm too busy filling my face.

Pros: Variety of pastries, Speedy service, Helps local homeless community

Cons: Teeny tiny seating area
