We travelled across London to try the highly rated vegan brunch and were sorely disappointed. The staff and coffee were lovely but the full English was terribly bland. No seasoning on the potatoes, th...e tomatoes sauce in the beans was tangy and unfinished, the tofu scramble was raw in places and lacked any salt, tomatoes again unseasoned, dry toast, and mushrooms deep fried and oily. Such a shame as the space is so lovely and it's great to see places pushing vegan food. But would never bring a meat eating friend here to show off the joys of plant based food, as it really doesn't do the best it should! See More

My friend and I were in London for Veg Fest UK on Saturday 21 Oct. We walked to Bethnall Green from Euston especially to eat brunch at The Gallery Cafe. We were not disappointed, lovely friendly sta...ff, super quick service and the menu range was amazing, such a wide choice and not expensive at all. Our meals were delicious, we had Turmeric Lattes, Avocado on toast, the superfood Oat Bowl and Choc and Banana Pancakes. Portion sizes were brilliant too - big! Just how I like my meal :) Thank you Gallery Cafe for making our London visit fabulous !!! We will be back x See More

Good coffee. Bad service. Bad food. Whenever I am there I feel like they are 1 staff member down as dirty tables everywhere and they don't bring your coffee or drinks to you. They make 1 drink per ti...me on the machine which is soooooo slow. Food seems expensive considering there is always something wrong/forgotten - Dried out rice, no dressing on the salads etc etc. See More

I value the choice to offer a vegetarian (now turning vegan :-) ) menu, the atmosphere and the programme of events. But the menu is sadly off limits for people with coeliac disease, even if there are... items listed as gluten free -and that is the real problem : the information is misleading and thus potentially very dangerous. When asked, the staff give contradictory answers as to what is suitable and what isn't. Fries are listed as gf but I was told that everything is fried in the same oil so they are obviously contaminated and thus not suitable for coeliacs. It would be nice if the staff was trained to cater for us coeliacs too. Until then, the misleading info on the menu must be corrected. See More

It's fun to come and have coffee in a place where you can eat everything.
Nice atmosphere, interesting and nice staff.
A warm family feeling.
The food is a little expensive in my opinion.

The food is very good (we had the Full English Breakfast, fresh juices, turmeric latte and Cappuccino). But the place and even the cuttlery is a bit dirty. The staff could be more friendly. The poor h...ygiene is a reason for me not to come here again. A shame really, because it tasted quite nice! See More

From a slightly different perspective, the performer's side.
I have performed there with my contemporary jazz band and it's a great venue for alternative arty music with all the paintings exhibition a...nd like minded audience. Was just the perfect atmosphere. See More

I have been here 3 times in the last month. The first time I was jumping with joy that I have such a good place in my area. the fry up was amazing as well as the fresh juice and teapig tea. Second tim...e came for the same but they ran out of the tofu scramble and apparently tomatoes as well so I basically got potatoes, beans and mushrooms.. this time I had just got the most disappointing 'grilled vegetable' vegan wrap. It had 3 mushroom pieces, some green spinach thing and a whole lot of quinoa. Tasteless, small, no sides for 7.50. They just lost a customer.
Oh, and nost of the staff are rude.

Food and coffee was great! Simple, hearty meals done well. The seating in the courtyard out the back was perfect for a sunny Saturday morning brunch. I agree with other reviews that the till service w...as a bit slow and unfriendly but the overall experience was positive. See More

So happy the Gallery cafe have gone vegan!!! Well done! Let’s hope more will learn from your example- that compassionate eating is not a compromise on taste- it’s the opposite!

Poor service; one person serving, three others wandering aimlessly doing nothing material, in the face of a long line of waiting customers.

The food is fantastic! Really delicious hot chocolate and the vegan burger was so flavourful. The only let down for us was how we were served at the till. Our server could have been a bit more polite ...and friendly as she was serving us. Felt like she really didn't want to be there. What a shame. See More

Lovely food but HORRENDOUSLY rude and cold staff. Really angry about the poor service.

I've been visiting here for 3 years and I've never had a good experience.
