It is a very nice place with caring staff. You can have lunch outside, inside or inside a glass box. It's food is delicious and yummy. They serve the best bacon and sausage sandwiches.

Whilst in the Hackney area I took a walk by the canal and up Greenway and ended up at "The View Tube"... It's basically a row of metal shipping containers / garage lock-ups painted bright green with an iron clad, (also the same bright green), building on the end of it which housed a nice Café ('The Moka East Café'),...

Fantastic food and service. It sits right on the Greenway with the Olympic park a minute away. The surrounding area is still undeveloped which makes this great place feel remote and peaceful despite being in the heart of the east end.

Lovely cafe with great views over the Olympic Stadium, they had a choice of 4 soups and paninis, all delicious and good value for money. Great pit stop if you're walking around the canals and the park.

It was never intended to be posh but the simple food was acceptable at reasonable prices. Now the Olympics has been over for a couple of years I... More

Used this for a corporate hospitality day and I cannot fault it. The venue does have the feel of a classroom and the chairs are lower than normal however once you get over this the technology available is great and the views of the stadium from the balcony are second to none. It's easy to get to but most of... More
