Gallery Café at St. Margaret's House


Offers a 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. The Gallery Cafe is a cosy sanctuary during the winter months, and comes alive in the summer with its sun trap terrace and garden, making it a great spot to enjoy all year round.

All the food is made in-house and almost any item on the menu can be served as a vegan option. The café uses locally sourced, seasonal ingredients wherever possible and the regular menu is supplemented with a rotating selection of freshly made daily specials. During the week there is a variety of themed menus, including Diner Night on Tuesdays and Chip Shop Night on the last Thursday of every month.

All the packaging is 100% recyclable, so if you're in a hurry you can pick up food to go. The café endeavours to recycle as much as possible and will soon be composting too.

To reduce its carbon footprint local suppliers are used - many of the suppliers are local and within a mile radius of St. Margaret’s House. The bread is delivered by bicycle, and comes from a local artisan baker. The coffee is roasted just down the road and the café also sources vegetables from Old Spitalfields market. It stocks beer brewed across the street and as the area attracts more and more new enterprises, the café prioritises supporting other local businesses, reducing its carbon footprint at the same time. It uses organic milk and stocks Teapigs, an ethically responsible brand of tea.
