 More about The Gallery Cafe: www.stmargaretshouse.org.uk/ga… An art gallery based in a cafe that’s a community-run charity. The Gallery Cafe is a unique place to eat and relax, situated near the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. We offer 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. 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.

The Larder: Globe Road but it is only open til 7 every night I believe.

G&T: Great little vegan coffee shop on Cambridge Heath Road

 

Westminster Veggie Society

Westminster is a little thin on the ground for people but loads of places to eat out…

Thanks to Sarah Zittrer for these:

1. Vitao –http://www.vitao.co.uk/ This place is great! You can eat from the buffet for £6.50 for a medium plate. Smaller and larger options are also available, as well as a la carte selections. A full range of juices, smoothies and hot vegan coffees, teas and plant milks are available. The only problem here is that I always eat too much!

2. Food for Thought – http://foodforthought-london.co.uk/ Amazing selection of vegetarian and vegan food. Gluten free options also available. Delicious home-cooked type food, and very generous portion sizes. Prices vary depending on the dish you order, but for a set meal it will cost about £8.

3. Tibits –http://www.tibits.co.uk/e/

Delicious, amazing and varied buffet. Hot and cold foods available. Lunch and dinner prices differ, but your meal is priced according to weight. Both vegetarian and vegan options available, as well as a variety of coffee, tea, juices, and alcoholic beverages as well. Be careful how much you pile on your plate, as the prices can add up!

Next meet-up/event:

ANIMAL BLESSING AND THANKSGIVING SERVICE FOR PETS

The service will feature prayers, readings and hymns, having our relationship with the animal kingdom as its theme and ending with the blessing of individual animals The event celebrates World Animal Day, the feast day of St.Francis of Assisi, which is on October 4. The service this year is dedicated to the nuns of the Russian Orthodox Convent of the Nativity of the Virgin in the Kaluga region of Russia in honour of their caring, compassionate work on behalf of unwanted and abandoned animals, especially cats. A local resident has links with the convent and during the service will give a presentation about its work on behalf of animals in need.  Click to find out more.

Find us on Facebook and say hello!

Hotspots

Pleaces to eat out suggested by Mike Grahn from Wandsworth Friends of the Earth after Thomas Micklewright visited them for their monthly meetup.

  • Girasole in Garratt Lane is a nice family-run Italian restaurant and is located near to Earlsfield train station.
  • South Indian restaurants in Tooting High Street and around.  The back room at Jaffna House is a favourite, but others are pure vegetarian which this is not.
  • Gallapagos in Battersea High Street always have something tasty as one of their three daily specials.
  • Maybe: Green Thai Cafe another local on Garratt Lane, but I’m not sure whether they use a dash of fish sauce in their many vegetable dishes (it would be traditional for Thai cuisine). Can anyone confirm this?
