A lovely little place found on a day walking the canal, wonderful food. Worth revisiting.

Wonderful food, good value. Fresh, veggie options. Outside eating area could be improved with tables and benches, plants .

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.

I highly recommend this cafe. It has such delicious food. I've been three times and I always enjoy what I eat. Staff are friendly and it has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

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.

We ate here on our day out to the Olympic Park. Very quirky space. Our lunch was delicious and good value for money. The Ukelele group were practising for their show tomorrow. You can have a go on the piano... write a story on the wall, draw a picture and generally hang out - and yes, you can hire a... More

Leading up to the Olympics and shortly afterwards it was the 'in place' to go to eat, meet friends and have a good view of the important bits of the Olympic 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

Between Pudding Mill Lane DLR station and the Olympic Park the cafe offers great views and is a lovely place to stop off for a drink or snack, way better value than inside the park itself. There's a section that gives information about the area, you can also hire a bike and even have a go on the piano whilst... More

First of all, the positive aspects. I used the ViewTube to hire a bike to go riding around the Olympic Park for a couple of hours. The bikes they have are nice and sturdy and you are offered a helmet, lock and hi-vis jacket if you want one for no extra cost. It's £7 for 2 hours so not a... More
