I came here because my mom and visiting and staying nearby. I live a little farther away but I will definitely be back again soon. I didn't even know (or particularly care) that it was vegetarian. We went three days in a row because of the delicious breakfast. I know nothing about the other food but if you are around before noon, check this place out. The lattes are made perfectly and even with some of the latte art I love but I know I have no ability for. My personal favorite are the blueberry pancakes folded around yoghurt with maple syrup. I've never had anything quite like them and fell in love.
The place itself is adorable. There is a pretty garden in the back and inside there are tables and couches and displays of things they sell around the cafe.
Just go. Try it.
A welcome addition to Bethnal Green: Decently priced decent food.
A nice posh-looking café with kind of expensive but pretty decent coffee, nice salads, and organicish juices and whatnot.
I've tended to avoid the slightly overpriced daily specials, but the salad selection (there are usually 3-4 inventive & filling salads that you can get with a Spanish tortilla for around a fiver.
Totally decent, nothing special, which is unfortunate, given the utterly massive choice of pubs in the area.
Situated in the back of the Buddhist Centre, it's a great place for Sunday breakfast/lunch or for stocking up your home larder with good stuff:)
The earthy colours provide perfect environment for the organic, solely vegan and vegetarian dishes they serve. Choice is quite limited (around 10 dishes), but well composed. You can complement your lunch with homemade cakes (also with vegan selection and they taste surprisingly good!) and decent coffee.
The little garden in the backyard and the children area gives it homely, relaxed feeling. Plus friendly and efficient stuff.
They also offer organic products from independent companies, like granolas, chocolates, chutneys, jams, pastas, etc. (slightly more expensive than in the shops though).
Solid vegetarian food, with slightly less earthy/crunchy in the air than I'm used to in similar cafes around the world. I like that the edges are polished and there's a bit of a posh feel to this little cafe. I've had some of their food and, despite it trying a bit hard, is really quite nice. I'll be going back again when I fancy a no-meat lunch that's a bit different. What stands out for me is their flat white coffee--really good--and not anywhere to be found nearby.
They sell fresh bread that looks very nice and quite a few upscale looking food in jars and boxes on their shelves. That's not for me, but nice to have the option!
Relative to the rest of most of the other options in Bethnal Green, this place is a gem.
Low key, friendly, vegetarian cafe next door to a Buddhist centre.
I had a chickpea bastilla with chick peas and harissa sauce, tasty, big and at £3.50, a bargain. Good if you want a quick feed, though there did seem to be a few people lounging with a paper.
At the Larder in Bethnal Green we specialise in excellent coffee and a great range of teas, plus the cakes and treats to go with your drink. At lunch time our chefs produce several enticing vegetarian and vegan main course choices which are served with your choice from several daily salad and vegetable accompaniments. In better weather our hidden courtyard garden is a big draw for tranquillity and seclusion from the bustle of Bethnal Green!
Established in 2007.
when we started out on Wanstead High Street as a much loved café and delicatessen. Wishing to know if we could repeat our success and knowing Bethnal Green was where we wanted to be we opened our second Larder on Globe Road in 2011. Due to local demand we opted for a meat-free café/restaurant but retained the focus on coffee quality and support of small-scale bakeries. So far we're delighted with the popularity of the Larder in Bethnal Green and the feedback has been wonderful!
