The Gallery Cafe - Vegan/vegetarian Cafe in East London

By Sharda ten Hove on 02 July 2014

As one of the social enterprises run by St. Margaret's House (A Community Charity), all profit generated by The Gallery Cafe goes back into the charity. So by dining at the Gallery Cafe, you are also helping to support the local community.

The cafe offers a delicious selection of vegan and vegetarian food, an exciting program of live events, and a new art exhibition from an up-and-coming artist every month.
They use biodegradable packaging and local suppliers wherever possible and most of their suppliers are based within a couple of miles. Their bread is even delivered via bicycle!

All food is home-made fresh on the premises and almost every dish is available vegan. Veganism is an integral part of a cruelty-free lifestyle and makes the biggest impact on reducing your carbon footprint.
